yes, rear calipers screw in. make sure you have brake fluid and take the cap off the master cylinder.

Brakes,and brakework have important safety issues.Have you done anything like this before?If not,there has to be a real cheap brake shop around.Ive taken motors and transmissions out and put back in,but I allways use a trained professional to do my brake work.Shop around,People can still save alot of $,wherever necessary,and there has got to be someone who would put your pads on for $30-$35.Ive seen the C clamp thing done,but your safety is very important.

The above poster is correct but it is something that you can do yourself provided you have the right reference material and take your time. This is the first year I've been doing my own repairs (upper ball joints, upper control arms, lower ball joints, stabilizer bar end links, coil over shock assemblies) and have had to remove the brakes on my F150 on some repairs. I have a Chilton's manual (they don't make one for the Tiburon...I've looked since I do the work on my kid's 2005) and as long as you take your time you'll be fine.

Just completed front and rear brakes on the tiburon. Took about 30the minutes a tire. I had no issues with air in my brake line or the ball joint. The easiest brake job I have ever done. I am not a mechanic I am a trainer for a restaurant. I have done over 25your brake jobs and I have never had a job so easy. Great job hyundai. Ok the rust made it super hard to get some bolts out. So I recommend a mallet to hit the wrench handle to help get the caliper screws off. Take your time and it is a n easy fix.
