It will be right behind the caliper, hooked to it.

What would cause the front brake to lock up other then the caliper


The rubber flex line that goes to the caliper could be collapsed internally letting the pressure to the caliper but not letting it return.

Right rear disk brake hangs up


Usually the flex line goes first then ends up locking on the caliper. Change the flex line on that caliper then replied that wheel. If it has abs you will need to have the key on to open the valve to be able to bleed it

How to change front disc brake rotors on 2005 toyota corolla


Replacing the rotors is usually a good idea if you experience shimmying when braking. It is recommend that you replace both the rotor and the brake pads at the same time. The reference for this information is from this site:

1. Jack up the vehicle and put some jack stands under it.
2. Remove the Lug nuts and the tire.
3. Carefully remove the caliper and caliper bracket.
4. Remove the old rotor. And replace it with the new rotor.
5. Reassemble the caliper bracket
6. Put on the new brakes pads and reassemble the caliper.
7. Put the tire and lug nuts back on.
8. Be sure to use the proper torque specifications.
9. Remove the jack stands and lower the vehicle.

1999 Toyota Corolla, I recently took it to a shop because the front left wheel was overheating and there was a distinct burning smell coming off of the left wheel. The mechanic replaced the "flex...


First of all I would be arguing with the first shop for a refund. you reported an issue with the LEFT wheel and they worked on the RIGHT wheel...The "flex" line your refering to is probably the short length of brake line from the caliper to the hard line.

If the caliper was "locking up" you would get lot of grabbing and the car would veer to the left when you applied the brakes. I suspect the wheel bearing is bad.

What is the socket size of the nut holding the front rotor on a 2005 toyota corolla? its not a hex nut but a 12 point socket?


the only things that are holding the rotor on is 1) the brake caliper which i believe has 2 14mm screws and 2) the brake caliper bracket which has 2 17mm screws holding it in place.once you remove these 2 parts,tap on the rotor( where the wheel goes bolted on )with a hammer and it should come off easily.if not spray some penetrant on the studs that hold the tire on, then tap on it some more and it should come off.hope this info helps.take care and good luck, manny

When I press on the brakes, I feel a pulse sensation and my 05 corolla doesn't stop right away in cold weather. The car kind of veers to the left sometimes. Do I need to replace the pads, rotors or both?


You need to replace the front pads and resurface or replace the rotors. Also check your slides for the calipers and make sure they are clean and well lubed when yo reassemble the brakes. If the slight pull still occurs either nthe flex hose or caliper is starting to get weak. But I think for now doing the front pads and rotors will solve your problems.

On my lincoln 96 the brake are sticking on one side front and back i got new calipers


The first thing to replace is the front rubber (flex) line that goes to the caliper from the steel brake line. They can go bad on the inside and not allow the caliper to retract when you take your foot off the brakes. If the rear brake is sticking it isn't retracting properly also, but try the front fix first and see what happens.

Right front brake drags


Replace the flex line the rubber line between the car and the caliper. The inside of flex line can collapse making the back flow to release the caliper extremely slow. You can confirm the line is the problem by doing two tests. Pump the brakes up and undo the line at the caliper and it should release the caliper. Pump them up again and then undo the flex line at the steel line going to the master cylinder this should not change anything. Let me know if your findings are different and we can go from there.
