About Bumper Brackets

Vehicles driven by combustion engines are equipped with a 12 volt Battery. The battery is commonly a lead-acid SLI type. It is box shaped and typically measures 25 cm x 20 cm x 18 cm in size and weighs around 16 kg. The Santa Fe Hyundai box is constructed of heavy plastic. This battery provides the electrical power to run the systems on the vehicle when the engine is not running and provides the power required to start the engine.

The battery is usually housed in the engine compartment under the bonnet. On some car makes and models it is housed under the rear passenger seats or in the boot.

Wherever the Santa Fe Hyundai battery is housed it must be securely fixed. In the designated space there will be a specific tray/base plate for the battery to sit in. There are various types of clamps and brackets to hold the battery securely in place. Some are long ‘J’ bolts which are hooked at one end and threaded at the other. The hooked ends connect to the base frame and the threaded end slots through angled top brackets which are tightened to the top edges of the battery with nuts, this clamps the battery down on the base plate, holding the battery in a firm position. Some vehicle, makes and models employ a series of flat brackets that clamp the battery to the base plate using the bottom lip at the base of the battery.

Problems with the Santa Fe Hyundai brackets and clamps, requiring them to be replaced, are usually due to corrosion issues.

Hyundai trivia

  • The Hyundai testing centre is world-class. Based in the Mojave Desert, the area (known as the Proving Ground) is an abandoned airbase. With 4,300 acres of land, cars can be tested so harshly that there are still remains of vehicles scattered around the zone.
  • The first Hyundai with front-wheel-drive was the Excel. Despite the weak sales, it remains an important car because it was designed by the man behind the world-famous time-traveling car, the DeLorean.
  • The Hyundai Sonata Hybrid is the first mass-produced car with a solar panel roof.
  • An estimated 90% of Hyundai sales come from their European market. That might be partly due to their sponsorship of events like FIFA.
  • Hyundai has a major advantage over other car manufacturers who have to import the steel that they use. Instead, Hyundai can cut production costs because they roll their own steel in South Korea.
