Mk2 Rear Caliper Return Spring
« November 21, 2018, 07:19:49 »
Hi Has anyone found a caliper return spring that will fit the Handbrake return on the rear caliper - I just contacted the dealer and was told it's not available separately but comes as part of a caliper meaning you have to pay in the region of 250 for a 5 spring  :faint:

That sucks. May be worth putting in writing to Hyundai UK your concerns if it's a 2013 model and it's now 2018 , 5 years, wty was 5 years, just out of wty. I would expect the spring to last the lifetime of the vehicle and if it can't should be made available like some of the other hardware.

Salty roads I guess crucify some bits

Hi Sheff,

 :whsaid:

In the mean time you could try picking one up from a wreckers yard. I would imagine the same part is probably used across a multitude of Hyundai and maybe also Kia models? :undecided:

thanks for your input, yes the car is just 5 months out of warranty. The brake is slightly different to the one you show - there must be 2 versions. What make is the brake? Is it hyundai's own design or made by one of the big brake companies?

Unless you PM me your VIN, best i can do. have not found your image yet, working with Europe i30 2013 U@ CRDi.

Likely they are their own, MOBIS. Have a look , casting will be stamped

april 2013 was a month they changed the part numbers.

   
58300A6300  LH
58400A6300 RH


   

Looks like the images in the catalog are not exact

I reckon that spring looks generic enough there may be something close to it out there.

Hi All,
just thought I would add a quick note to close out my thread. I got a spring that is nearly the same and now the handbrake seems to be working okay, I will keep a close eye on it though. the spring size is 47mm x 12mm x 2mm (free length x coil diameter x wire diameter). I also need to clean and paint the area at some point.

I am also thinking of writing to Hyundai about them not selling the spring separately but that might be a wasted
effort

Nice work, not so nice what's going on there. Naturally you purchased extras :whistler:

Yuk  :coolingoff:

Ive commented several times about the corrosion on Brit and Euro cars, to an extent we never see them in that condition down here.  :umbrella: Something to consider when answering queries.
I remember a woman ranting on about her fuel tank falling out, we assumed that it had been submerged in sea water .  :Ouch:

yes you are right about the corrosion, our weather really doesn't help, we can drive for hours at a time on the motorway with the car bathed in a fine spray from lorries and other cars when its raining then add to that the salted slush covered roads of the winter and its no surprise that rusting is a problem.
having said all that rust often looks worse than it actually is because of the way the oxide expands as it forms.
Its a good job those handbrake levers are fairly thick, BTW the wet on the photo is only 3in1 oil.
