    Question front rotors 2003 elantra

    Want to change pads and rotors . rotors seem to be difficult to remove, any suggestions? I also have a couple of lug nuts that may be galded up. Is this a common problem on these cars. The lug nuts have the plastic rings that hold the hubcap on can these be purchased anywhere on line?

    The rear ones on the GT suck cause you have to twist the piston as it goes in so be hopeful you have a GLS.

    ^ actually if you pop the top on the brake fluid resivior (sp duh?) they goi right in because the pressure is relieved...its not a big deal...as long as you have the tool of coarse...

    yeah a three lbs sledge from the back side and some heat would help as well...

    the steelies you can get off just by beating on the tire with a rubber mallet (i had to do this when i took my wifes car in for some tires...the owner came up and saw that i was having trouble...he litterally grabbed the largest rubber mallet...probably about 3lbs and whaled them...they popped right off and then i put some anti sieze on the back side of them so hopefully it doesnt happen again.

    Ya after the fact that I found out you needed that damn tool. I dont know why they would put those stupid rotating pistons on the rear brakes!
