Question about 2005 Toyota Corolla
Posted by Anonymous on
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.
10. Read torque the lug nuts to the proper specification.
11. Follow the link for details and photos.

The 30mm axle nut does NOT get removed to remove a rotor. The 17mm caliper bolts must be removed to removed the caliper, and the rotor will come right off.

I have seen more people cause very costly damage to their cars, and spend hundreds of dollars, because they didnt let a professional do their brakes. If you do not know what youre doing, let a professional do it. To save $100 is not worth yours and other peoples lives.

Under normal circumstances, the drum should slide right off once the wheel is removed.
If you have built up rust holding it on, there are two threaded holes near the center of the drum to aid in removal.
Insert two 12mm bolts into the holes and, while adding plenty of lubricant, turn the bolts in even amounts until they push the drum off.
Be sure to keep them lubed, as they will strip out easily if not.
If you have aftermarket drums without the holes or the screwholes are stripped out, smacking the face of the drum with a dead blow hammer will help free it up, but takes much longer for success.

And make sure you pay special attention to the proper torque when you put it back on as well as take care when you remove this since the bearing are apt to fall out.

Please DO NOT drive in with the vehicle in this condition!!!!
What you have going on is that the brake caliper (part that holds your brake pads) is bad and sticking. Just remove it, get a NEW one from any chain autoparts store,and replace it. You will have to get a new set of pads as well,as due to the binding, the ones on there now are trashed.
Again,PLEASE do NOT drive in this condition as yours and your fellow drivers ,as well as your passengers safety is at stake.
