    You buy a proper repair manual, do you agree?

    You don't remove the "brake" from the bearing. You may remove the hub, the tire, the brake caliper mount, but the brake pades come off from the caliper.

    public libraries normally have a great selection of free repair manuals.

    p.s. when is comes to removing things, here are the steps to follow

    1. look for bolts or screws to remove and do so

    2. try to pull piece off/out

    3. try harder

    4. love taps

    5. if 1-4 fail, look in manual and see if you need puller

    6. if you need puller, go to autozone or wherever and rent puller, making one from scratch is really hard

    if none of these works, ask your teacher.

1986 toyota 4x4 pickup brakes go to the floor

Check your brake lines/connections for leakage and clogging. Any leaks/clogs? Fix the problem spots. Then bleed the system. This is best/easiest done with two people. Brake bleeding steps can be found in pretty much ANY auto repair manual for a vehicle with conventional hydraulic brakes.

I have no front brakes on my 88 Toyota. I've bled

You may have to install brake cylinder kits on the front wheels. The kits come with all you need to replace them. Or it could also be the main cylinder that's leaking.

Brake light and battery light come on at the same

Having the same problem myself, don't know if it is wiring problem or not. Cleaned the battery terminals; seemed to help temporarily but may be alternator problem. The truck has an oil leak and I'm wondering if that may be affecting the belt. I love the truck but it sucks at night when the the headlights dim. Will let you know if I figure it out.

Warning lights stay on


Brake light warning indicates possible low brake fluid in the reservoir;

Charge warning light indicates battery not charging which can be caused by defective alternator/regulator, slipping belt, corroded fusible link from alternator to battery B+ terminal.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
