Question about 2001 Toyota Sequoia
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.

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.

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.

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.

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)
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 plate.
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.
