    this vehicle looks easier to service than most…….i wish they sold new cars that were rated by how easy they are to service rather than how big their GPS viewing screens are

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pete Pete says:

    I like to pop a hole in those filters, a little less messy.

    I learn so much from watching an honest company. thank you.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rey Gaitan says:

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Macluvin65 says:

    Careful with the 100% o2 dude too much of a concentration in your blood can be fatal but you should be fine if you ain't a tool 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars nonya biz says:

    I have watched each video S.M.A makes more the 3 times and I still learn stuff each time I watch. I may get in a dream world from time to time as I remember those mistakes I made on some of my d.y.I work at home. Thanks again for a great video.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hawk 1966 says:

    I had a '71 Plymouth Fury wagon. Guy I bought it from had put Keystone rims and air shocks on it. It was a mean beastie. Had the bumper that wrapped AROUND the front fender and the flip-down headlight covers were metal! You couldn't design a better car to kill garbage cans with. Metal, plastic, full, empty. Lights out! Boom! Lights on! Flee!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars subzjc says:

    How come people arn't lined up to get fluid film baths? Do you offer that service?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars ugh3012 says:

    Love the history. Great story.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lorenzo De La Cruz says:

    I frigg'n wish my corolla's rods had a flat on the back. The angle grinder ate well that day.

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars peter barber says:

    What's the oldest model santa fe that you have ever wored on

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars james daniels says:

    Did they ever change oil or put anything new on this poor old Hyundai? Pretty pathetic isn't it? That woman will feel like a new car under her now.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Gary says:

    For nonsensical reason aircraft calipers have the bleed on the bottom so you have to pressure bleed them from the bottom up. Never understood why.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Well seeing as the air filter is so filthy and groce perhaps a cabin filter would possably be a novel ideal

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard Bambenek says:

    Growing up in Minnesota I remember getting snow in early May. I didn't mind cuz I love snow. Now living in Missouri we don't get enough to satisfy me.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug H. in VA says:

    that air filter is the dirtiest one I ever even heard of… that is car neglect at the extreme

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars C Leighton says:

    I'm about to do the same rear parking brake work on my own 2011 Santa Fe, as well as pop out the rear half-shalfs and replace both differential axle seals. I searched Youtube a while back when I ordered the parts (OEM complete backing plate and brake assemblies, all pre-assembled) and this was the first video that popped up. It was this video that made me subscribe to SMAs channel, mostly because Eric O and I are similar in age, and we have similarities in our work habits and sense of humor. Even though I'm a carpenter by trade, MVR mechanical work has always been a passion of mine and was actually the first trade course I took after graduating high school. Unfortunately, I don't have quite the shop setup or vast array of tools, but I make do with what I have. Keep up the great videos and content SMA!

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alexis DeVille says:

    Are you sure you have a enough wore out tires piled up? LOL😇

    My friend you need yourself an inductive heater for those ugly nuts and bolts

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bill Simpson says:

    aka, 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it', especially true with plumbing fixtures.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Judge Roy Bean says:

    That's a fast lift .

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Judge Roy Bean says:

    Now they call them parking brakes ….

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John Jones says:

    Nice touch with little tour and history narration. Thanks, Eric, for the hugely informative videos, keep safe during this "interesting" time we are going through, greetings from a ridiculously locked down South Africa. Edit: In fact, lets say God's richest blessings to you, Vanessa and the little ones!

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Cristiano Botelho says:

    With is that you call fluid film or something like that.

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mick Purcell says:

    Job well done👌

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chase says:

    Nice job doc. Thanks for the tire recommendation.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars PastBlast says:

    I think will start a new business. Im going to meet Chinese and Japanese tourists at the airport and bring them to Avoca by the busload to see and photograph a real, honest, automobile technician in his native habitat. "Look! theres the female and her babies!" I will then get Richard Attenborough to narrate. I'm gonna be rich!

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shawn Berg says:

    Anyone else find themselves answering Eric's questions out loud…then realize you're the only one who can hear your answer?

    Eric: "Probably can't see much, can ya?"
    Me (out loud in my office): I can see perfectly fine."
    Employee next to my office: "You OK, buddy?"
