It is a fairly easy job, just watch carefully how it comes apart, take pictures if necessary. Make sure all sliders work free, so the caliper floats right, or else the new pads will wear out very fast. As long as you don't take any brake lines loose or pull the caliper pistons apart you will not need to bleed the brakes.

You need to go into the access hole in the rotor and back off the park brake shoes, which are located inside the rotor.

SOURCE: How do I replace the Rear Brake light bulb of 2001 Toyota Sienna?

I have a 2001 Sienna and have had to replace most of my tail light bulbs.

The bulbs that are mounted in the fender (wrap arounds) have acess panels in the van's interior that easily pop out and expose the back of the light assembly.

However, the bulbs that are found in the lift gate are a different matter. You have to remove the whole interior panel to the lift gate to expose the light assemblies. Go to your auto parts store and get a tool to help pop out the plastic retainers from the lift gates metal frame. Don't force the retainers out. Go slowly and gently so that you don't damage the interior panel. If you are really gentle you might even get to reuse the retainers.

Good luck!

You need to have the wheel speed sensors checked. If one is not reading the proper rPM of the wheels, it thinks that the other wheel is spinning, and the TRAC applies the brakes on that side.
A good tech with a good scan tool might be able to read the sensors, but, a Toyota tech is your best bet.

SOURCE: replacing tail light bulbs on 2001 Toyota Sequoia

Remove the two screws holding the tail light cover in place along the edge of the tail light assembly.

After you remove the two screws in the back panel, you have to pull the assembly out towards the side of the vehicle. You cannot pull it straight back from the trunk or you will break the pins that hold the lens cover onto the side of the SUV.

There are two pins that allow the light cover to be secured against the back of the truck. One pin is towards the top, the other pin is towards the bottom.

Twist out the bulb assembly.
Pull out the bulb
Insert the new bulb
Twist back in the bulb assembly
Place the pins over the pin holes in the light cover mold on the side of the truck
Push in gently Replace screws and you are done.

SOURCE: I broke the latch from the handle of my 2003

It will be about $200-280 at the dealer, they know all about this problem on the Sequoia.

If you want to do it yourself, it will take about 1.5 hours and some patience.

Depending on the level of corrosion in the back of your window area, the part number you need to order is the handle assy rear door. If you have a big problem, you may need the cable also:

toyotapartscheap.com (Mossey Toyota)
Parts:
1. Lock sub Assy - 69301 0C010 (($99)
2. Handle Assy Rear Door - 69090 08010 ($70)
3. Cable - 64680 0C010 ($24) .

The design is the same from 01-05 and is common to break after time. A poor design on an otherwise excellent truck.

If you want to DIY - visit Tundra Solutions.com and read up on the problem:

First, take off the license plate2_bing.gif.
Since the hatch wouldn't open, I started from the inside and took down the top trim piece. After that the two side pieces come down, then the main trim piece which covers the bulk of the door comes out. These are all popped in with the white tabs.
There are 3 access hole covers to pop out (don't forget to install them back in when done) and through the left hole you can see the mechanism to unlatch, press it down with a screwdriver and open the door. If anytime you close the door you will have to do this to unlatch, up until you disconnect the cable and pull out the handle, then you have to locate the cable and pull that directly.
Behind the large trim piece you will find a metal access cover, remove the 7 or 8 10mm bolts holding that on and pop the 3 white tabs and let it hang off to the side. Disconnect the cable from the handle assembly by reaching in from the right hand side and popping of the cable from the handle assembly.
From the left and right access holes, locate the two 10mm nuts which hold the license plate assembly to the door and remove them. Then there are 4 plastic tabs that come in from the outside that hold the license plate assembly on in each corner, try and locate those and using some pliers squeeze them together and push it through. Next locate the license plate lamps wire connector and release that from the left side, it’s the simple push in and pull out square white connector.
After these are out, put back in 1 or 2 bolts into the large metal access cover so the hatch can be lowered (don’t close it).
Here is where I had fun, begin to pop out the assembly that it was bolted to. I ended up breaking 3 of the 4 plastic tabs in each corner because I did not use pliers from the other side to pull them out, however it remained somewhat useable (hindsight 20/20).
Now the license plate assembly can be taken to a bench to replace the handle assembly (Toyota doesn't sell just the handle, it is a small assembly). Two screws out and the assembly is replaced.
Before pressing the license plate assembly back onto the truck, make certain all the plastic tabs are in the assembly and not in the truck. Reverse the process to re-install.

I have replaced 3 disc brake calipers on my 2001 pt cruiser. after bleeding all 4 brakes 3 times, I started the car and brake pedal goes to floor. is my brake booster shot?


Michael:

You must start bleeding the brakes at the wheel farthest from the master cylinder (usually the right rear), then the next farthest from the master cylinder, then the next, then the closest. If your master cylinder is at the left front of the car, start with the right rear, then the left rear, then the right front, then the left front. If you don't bleed the brakes in the correct order, you are just shifting the air in the lines from one line to another. Make sure that you close the bleeder before letting the brake pedal up, and the engine should not be running when you bleed the brakes... Make sure that the emergency brake is off. Make sure that the master cylinder does not run out of brake fluid at any time that you are bleeding the brakes.

Bleeding 02 toyota sequoia


You have a helper pushing on the brake pedal when you open the bleeders? Is fluid coming out of the bleeders when you open them?

typically you will start at the right rear, then left rear, then right front, then left front. or work your way from the farthest bleeder to the nearest bleeder to the master cylinder. Make sure the reservoir does not go dry or you will have to start over.

It is possible that when you pushed the pedal to the floor the seals in the master when through some debris and where ruined.

2001 Toyota Sequoia Oxygen sensors


No the wires won't likely be the same length

The front upstream sensors, are not the same
Part # as the rear,downstream monitor sensors

Go to Rock Auto.Com & look up your oxygen sensors
I would get the NTK or Bosch,if they have that

You do not replace the rear sensors, until they fail

You replace the front ones at 100,000 miles or sooner,
if they fail

Parking brake won't hold vehicle on incline. Dealer says it's not supposed to have that much force. Isn't this wrong? 2003 Toyota Sequoia with just driver


NO, the dealer is correct,the handbook says always put the car in gear/park and turn the wheel toward the kerb when parking on an incline.this is because most cars have discs all round and after use the rear discs will shrink allowing the brakes to be inefective.(VW/hyundai/toyota will not cover you if your car runs away on its own........

Just bought 2003 Toyota Sequoia and find that the brakes are very spongy feeling. Traveling at 45, I pushed on the brakes with about 80% of my strength and still couldn't feel them bite. Two different...


Hi. To answer your question, No. The Sequoia has great braking ability, assuming that the brakes have been maintained. Most likely, your rear brake shoes may not be adjusted properly, and that means that the rear brakes are not doing their share of the work. Try this: Put the park brake on, and then drop the trans into drive, and give it a bit of gas. If the vehicle moves at all, the rear brakes need adjusting. This is a very common problem.
