Brakes

Hyundai added the Brembo brakes from 2009 to 2016 in the R-Spec & Track trim level Hyundai Genesis Coupes.

BRAKES 
Brake Type Non Brembo Base Model Single Piston 
Brake ABS System 4-Wheel - 4 channel
Brake ABS System (Second Line) N/A
Disc - Front (Yes or ) Yes
Disc - Rear (Yes or ) Yes
Front Brake Rotor Diam x Thickness 12.6 in

BRAKES
Brake Type Brembo Calipers 4 piston
Brake ABS System 4-Wheel
Brake ABS System (Second Line) N/A
Disc - Front (Yes or ) Yes
Disc - Rear (Yes or ) Yes
Front Brake Rotor Diam x Thickness 13.4 in
Rear Brake Rotor Diam x Thickness 13.0 in

 

ABS System utilizes the following input channels:

Wheel Speed Sensors, Steering Angle, Yaw/G Sensor, Brake Pressure (built in ABS module)

 Master cylinder is a dual cylinder that has a primary and secondary output that supplies one front and one opposite rear wheel.

 Rear proportioning is done electronically within the ABS module to allow optimal stopping power to the rear axle.

Service Information:

Brake Bleeding:

Ensure brake fluid reservoir is at the MAX level line. Always use genuine DOT3/DOT4 brake fluid.

Brake Bleeding Sequence: Rear Right, Front Left, Rear Left, Front Right 

Repeat this sequence until all air bubbles are removed from the system. Do not forgot to check brake fluid reservoir frequently during the process and refill to the MAX level line once complete.

Brembo equipped Hyundai Genesis Coupes have two brake bleeders per caliper. We like to start with the inside bleeder then move to the outside. 

This process is critical and necessary after installing performance brake lines or brake calipers.

Brake Line Install:

After removing wheel & tire, remove the brake hose clip (A) where the hard line meets the rubber hose.

Disconnect the brake hard line tube by loosening the tube flare nut.

Disconnect the brake hose from the brake caliper.

To install new brake line, tighten the brake line hose to the brake hard line tube flare nut to: 12.3 lb-ft. Then install the brake line to the caliper using new copper crush washers and tighten to 21.7 lb-ft. 

Brake Pad Replacement:

Standard Calipers (Non-Brembo): 

Remove guide rod bolts which hold the caliper bracket to caliper body. Install new pads using provided shims. 

May be necessary to compress the caliper piston using the old brake pad and a c-clamp if the caliper body does not slip onto the caliper body with the new brake pads there. Always open the brake fluid reservoir cap when doing this. 

Tighten the guide rod bolts to: 23.1 lb-ft.

Same methodology is used for the rear standard brake pad replacement.

Brembo Calipers: 

Remove the bottom guide pin (B) of the lower part with a pin punch (a small flat head will work).

 This will release tension from the retraction spring (D). Then remove the upper pin (C) to release the retraction spring (D). 

Remove old brake pads (E).remove-brembo-brake-pads.jpg

Installation of new brake pads is the reverse procedure. Insure the pins are pointing in the right direction and tap them into place (plastic hammer) making sure the locking inserts are popped into place. Make sure 

Same methodology is used for the rear Brembo caliper brake pad replacement.

Caliper Removal and Installation:

Removal of the brake caliper is necessary for replacing the disc brake rotors for aftermarket rotors.

Standard Caliper: Caliper mounting bolts (assembly to knuckle) factory bolts (C) torque spec: 72.3 lb-ft

Same torque spec applies to the rear standard caliper factory bolts (C).

 

Brembo Caliper: Caliper mounting bolts (assembly to knuckle) factory bolts (C) torque spec: 75.9 lb-ft

 Same torque spec applies to the rear standard caliper factory bolts (C).

Front Brake Disc Thickness Check:

Rear Brake Disc Thickness Check:

 If wear exceeds the limit, replace the discs and pad assembly left and right of the vehicle. Never just replace one rotor or set of brake pads, at the minimum, do the other side. 

 

Overall Fantastic

Over all fantastic. From the ordering process, to how fast the shipping is and also the customer service. This is why I only shop on GenRacer for my coupe! Keep up the stellar work

Awesome Service

I recently purchased the ARK test pipes for my 2010 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 and must say was the best thing I’ve done aside from from getting my aftermarket exhaust. Sounds louder and drives faster! No hassle, got the pipes within three days. Thank you GenRacer,

Simply the Best Service

Most places just sell parts and when you call them it feels like you are bothering them. My last transaction with GENRACER left nothing to be desired, meaning it could have not been better. I purchased front and rear WHITELINE sway bars, front & rear DBA rotors, and EBC YELLOWSTUFF brake pads. I called just after I ordered the parts because I received an "out of stock" email notification. When I called back to chat with someone *** answered the phone. He couldn't have been more knowledgeable about exactly what I was looking for when it came to the right brake pad for my needs (street/track). Come to find out the pads I picked (DBA's) were not the best pads for my application so im very glad I talked to ***!! I just recently had everything installed, bedded the pads and I am so happy I used GenRacer for my 16 R-Spec Coupe!! Thanks again ***!!!

So Awesome

Order came fast and looks amazing on my car. I did have one problem where one tail light would blink sequentially and the other didn’t. I sent an email late in the day inquiring about it. I wasn’t expecting a response until at least the following day as it was so late. Within an hour they had gotten back to me informing me of a switch on the inside of the housing where you can choose sequential or regular. Sweet! Top notch customer service.
