Hyundai Accent, named the most dependable sub-compact car way back in 2008 deserves the title but in order to maintain the same the maintenance is equally very essential.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    where can i find detailed info on a front brake job for a hyundai accent??
    need to install front brake pads on Hyundai Accent

    • ANSWER:
      I use the factory repair manual, usually around 500.00 from the dealer or I have seen some Cd’s on line. If you are excited in doing repair on your car, I suggest having a mechanic friend show it to you once and let you do one side on your own. Just watch him complete the first side so you have a reference of what it should look like if you get in a jam. The money you will save in the long run is priceless. Expect to buy some really cool tools to help you out, but the satisfaction of you knowing the job was done correctly will be well worth it.

  2. QUESTION:
    Hyundai 99 Sonada Brake Job?
    Does anyone know the cost for a brake job, the car has ABS, also it has 70K on it and this would be the first time anything is done on the brakes.

    • ANSWER:
      Well, it depends on what you need done, but we’ll just assume the basic’s here. At this point your brake fluid is black as tar and fried, so you’ll need a fluid exchange (), your brake pads all need replacing for pads + 1.5 hours labor (5) including brake adjustment. So, total you likely need to spend about 5. They may want to turn or resurface your rotors for an additional charge, I’d probably decline this service and check the price of rotors on ebay, often rotors for late model cars cost less then having them resurfaced.

    • ANSWER:
      A lot of shops (WANT) to replace pads, rotors, calipers even if some are not in bad shape, their reason is if you replace all you will brakes like the day it was made. Watch out for these outfits, get a second opinion.

  5. QUESTION:
    Clutch job on 2001 Hyundai Accent requires what?
    I love my cheap car and now it needs a new clutch. I have had it replace before by the the dealer because the rocker bearing went out and was under warranty… I had to pay 0. for the rest of the job. Now that the car is no longer under warranty, I am looking around for quotes. I have gotten 00 – 0. Now I am a girl and no very little about cars, but I do know that mechanics try to talk me into repairs that weren’t necessary (I find out later). The 1100.00 guy said that all the clutch components need to be new and replaced (he’s never even seen the car). The other guy didn’t say much other than resurfacing the fly wheel. I want to know what do they need to replace and what do they need to adjust (as in resurface, or like a brake rotor gets turned). I don’t mind paying more for the right job but I don’t want to over spend on my cheap car either. Oh also I don’t have any mechanic friends and cannot work on the car myself.

    • ANSWER:
      LTS (labor time standards) recommend 4.7 hours for labor to replace clutch component. Multiply 4.7 with the shop rate and you get the shop labor charges (should not be more than 0.00 depending on labor rate). Clutch kit is recommended to be entirely replaced-roughly 0.00 +/- (give or take). Kit contains: pressure plate, friction disc and release bearing. Once transmission is removed, the flywheel should be inspected. If hot spots (blue marks) are present on the friction section, the flywheel should be machined to eliminate potential clutch shudders. Machining flywheel should not exceed .00.

      Ultimately, you might be looking somewhere between 0 to 0 for this job (plus applicable local taxes).

      Hope this will give you the best answer.
