  1. Help!
    Hey Guys. It's been awhile since i've been here. My old GT 2004 died and i replaced it by a GT GLS 2016 2 years go. It is now at 50K Km and i've started to have issues with my front brakes. When my front brakes get hot, the pads start to stuck on the disk and i can hear a scratching noise that...

  3. Help!
    Well, my gears are starting to grind, every single gear actually, not just one. 3rd-5th are not nearly as bad as 1st and 2nd, but none the less they still grind. My grandfather (and many other people and mechanics) have said that the synchros are going out. My questions being, how diffficult is...
  4. Help!
    Hello every one, I have a 2001 Elantra hatch back for about 3 to 4 years now and I encounter a couple problems that I should ask before taking any action. hope you guys can help. FYI the car is pretty much stock except for a short ram that the previous owner installed and it was 136,540 miles...
  5. Help!
    I need to know if anyone else has this issue. I took my car into the dealer in 2008 and my rear brakes were worn out. I had them replaced and 10,000 miles and 1 year later they were shot again. They told me that was normal and replaced them. 1 year later, another 10,000 miles they were wore...
  6. Suspension/Brakes/Drivetrain
    Ok, so I had my tires replaced this morning and they did the whole check of the car. They came out and told me that the rear brakes had 4 and 5 mm left on them and the front had 8. I asked if it was normal and should they be down that much since I just had all the routers and pads done about...
  7. Maintenance & Care
    Dear Gods of EXD, My car's in the shop for a rusted-through power steering line. Since I never had the 90,000mi maintenance done, I am getting the front pads and rotors replaced too. I love my car and want it to continue working as faithfully and reliably as it has for the past 10 years...
  8. Suspension/Brakes/Drivetrain
    Some of you may remember me asking about replacing the brakes on my 2005 XD2 a while ago. Well... they are once again rubbing and grinding like a high school formal dance. Word to the wise: don't cheap out on brakes. The question here is: How much should I be expecting to pay for a full brake...
  9. New Member Checkpoint
    Hmmm, longtime lurker finally checking in. Gotta get to my 5 posts so I can ask question and post guides without boring the mods to death for approval :laugh: Finally turning our 03 Elantra GT into a "high-performance" door-ding magnet. CAI done, photo guide to come. Brakes and (the painful...
  10. Maintenance & Care
    Hey guys I'm new to Elantraxd and had a few questions about my 2001 Hyundai Elantra GLS. I am trying to learn more about maintenance and upkeep to avoid dealer costs. I've had it a couple years and had the brakes replaced a year or so back. For about a week I have been experiencing squealing...

    I replaced my rear brake pads about 4 months ago.. Now they are making a loud scrapping noise when they are not applied.. When I pull up the Ebrake when driving the noise goes away.. also when stopping I dont hear the noise.. Im scared to see if I burned through a set of pads in 4 months...
  12. Suspension/Brakes/Drivetrain
    So I replaced the rear pads on my 05 Elantra GT, Couple questions for the experts however. I had trouble getting the little shims that attach to the Calipers at the ends of the pads when installed, they are about 1/2 inch by 1 1/2 inch long... SO I just didnt install them ... Are they necessary...
  13. Wheels and Tires
    I know that this is not a big deal to most of you, but these are my first aftermarket wheels and tires.
  14. Suspension/Brakes/Drivetrain
    I will try to convert my GLS (2005) rear drums to disc. The easiest way will be taking parts from a GT at the junkyard. Anybody have a better idea? Perhaps someone that already did the job can give some advise. If possible I will do the upgrade to bigger brakes at the same time. I will remanin...
  15. Suspension/Brakes/Drivetrain
    So its time to get new pads for the ride. I figure if im going to do it, i should just have it done right.. Looking for recommends on rotors and pads. not planning anything drastic, but i might as well get something that looks 1/2 way decent now that you can see the whole thing crystal clear...
