I have had so many problems with my handbrake on my I30 that I decided to fit new rear calipers myself and stripped down the old one to see how it works. -
i have put a brief video on You tube for anyone interested in how it works.
BTW if your handbrake does stick in an emergency you can release it with a 12mm spanner   :lol:

Be kind.

Thanks for that, I always wondered what was inside. I had a problem with my 65 plate car where the drivers side rear pads started wearing away much faster than the other side, so I thought it could be the caliper sticking. I wound the pistons back in and fitted new pads and so far, they're wearing evenly.

Did you get a new Hyundai caliper or an after-market one?

I opted for the aftermarket - an NK version. Went on easily enough but don't know if it will last better than the Hyundai ones.
