Question about Toyota 4Runner
ANY Ideas how to stop a water rust, under on a toyota 4 runner
There are several ways to stop frame rust but it needs to have all existing rust removed before its treated. if not its like putting a band aid on a gunshot wound, it will only mask the problem. spraying a good coat of under coating or even spray on bed liner once the rust is removed will greatly slow it down. there are also treatment sprays that inhibit rust but on a large scale can be very expensive

Diagram is unnecessry.
Pull both front wheels
Work one at a time leaving the other for reference
Find the retention spring ... its a paperclip thickness wire spring... dislodge center retention loop and undo from both ends which engage brake pad retention rods.
Pull the rods out
Pull the old pads out... laying everything on the ground
Use scrap wooden wedges to pry between the rotor and the caliper ...inside and out until the calipers are fully withdrawn. Use the new pads to measure if they are far enough back.
Note... the brake fluid will have dropped in the master cylinder over many months of wear... do not fill it. When the calipers are pushed back they will fill the reservoir again... one wheel at a time.
Be sure to identify the correct pad based on what you took out and what is on the other side (if you screwed up the layout)
Make sure to take the old antisqueek backing plate from the old pad and place it on the new pad. They don't use lubricant on these anymore.
Replace the pads... the retention rods... then the retention spring
Do the other side
Then progressively step on the brake peddle until full tension is felt
Check the master cylinder reservoir... probably needs no additional fluid.
New pads will register in existing ridges in each disc in no time at all.
You should check the discs to see if they need to be replaced during this operation...using some calipers

You need to reset the light with a scan tool, the same one you used to read the code in the first place.
