Having problems with your 2001 Hyundai Elantra ?

Rear brake piston compression problem? How do I compress the rear piston into the caliper to allow new brake pads to be installed?

Answers :

As far as I know, most front disc brake setups have pistons that are pressed back into the cylinders using a C-clamp or something similar.

\015\012Your Hyundai may have this kind of setup.
