Yes. Did my front pads a few weeks ago (105,000 miles ). Fairly straight forward. Two bolts to remove and caliper is slid off the disc. The pads push out quite easily. Dont forget to put the new spring clips in, and add a bit of copperslip to the back of the pad so that you don't get any brake squeal. Less than an hour to do both sides.

Rears are a wind in piston, fronts push in.

Default Rear Brake pads

Hi,
Have replaced and overhauled disc brakes on several cars and bikes and not come across wind back calipers. If calipers have been sticky, I have used copper grease and pushed in the calipers (slowly and gently) using a big G clamp.

One of my Picanto's rear discs is squeeking and I was going to remove caliper (pushing in piston as require using my trusty G clamp), copper grease piston and replace.

Is this procedure going to damage the brake caliper? The wind back tools come in various designs and do not look any more technical than my G clamp.

Cheers, Pinkeye

Default Rear Brakes

Found this today:-

Hyundai klub Slovenija

Hyundai Getz shares many parts with Picanto. It is a detailed description of replacing rear Drum with Disc brake on a Getz. May be useful for anyone overhauling Picanto rear disc.

Default Job Done

Hi,
Had my rear calipers off today. Piston is screw in as Murphwiz advised, but special tools not needed. I used narrow nosed pliers to turn it back. Just had to put a bit of pressure on it first with my G-clap and it turned dead easy.

Default Broke my socket wrench!!!!

I tried to change my brakes yesterday and ended up breaking a socket wrench tryin to get the caliper bolts off! Am I missing something here? Does this have to be done at a garage with a air drill?

Hi Pinkeye,
As you have already done your picanto rear disc pads,could you tell me if you rewind them both clockwise,or are they opposite,ie one side clockwise and one side anti clockwise,

Cheers Roadpilot
