SOURCE: 2003 Toyota Sequoia Rear Brake Rotor Removal

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: My 99 Toyota Avalon horn does not make any sound.

save yourself the hassle , buy yourself a momentary 12volt switch drill a nice clean hole on your driversside dash and re-wire your horn to it, all the screwing around you'll do to figure out why toyota makes cheesy horn contacts you could have your problem fixed..

on one side of the switch you should run a wire that is a 12volt switched +
on the other side I would run another side run a new power wire to your horn
leave your horns stock ground and just replace the HOTLINE ..

you could even go as far as installing a la cou ca racha horn to bring back that 70's Lowrider feel lol

SOURCE: Trying to remove and replace rear brake rotors

First, make sure your parking brake is off.
Remove the rear caliper and then the brake pad housing. In the center hub of the rotor the parking brake shoes are located. The may need to be loosen first. There is a hole between 2 of the studs you need to align at the bottom. Look in the hole with a flashlight and find the star wheel. Use a screw driver to turn the wheel up a few turns to loosen the parking brake shoes from the rotor hub.
After that there are 2 threaded holes in the rotor near the studs you put two 8mm bolts in and slowly tighten each and it will pull the rotor off the hub. They rust up pretty bad so use penetrating oil on them.

SOURCE: problem changing rear rotors on 95 Toyota Avalon

your rear rotors must have the parking brake OFF before you take the rotor off!! those springs are for the parking brake. if you mess with the rotor while still in park, you can knock a spring loose and make it very problematic to get it put back on ( its not easy to access). so bottom line:
loosen lug nuts while car still on ground. jack car up and take tires off... then take off the caliper and its braket ( all of this with no parking brake) after all is removed and out of the way ( make sure the caliper is safely hanging ( not by the brake line) then you can try tapping the rotor off. also there are 2 smaller wholes on the rotor that are threaded if you look closely... if the rotor does not come off upon tapping, find a bolt about an inch long that fits thats thread, screw it in and litterally push the rotor out from behind. i find that the best in dealing with a stubborn rotor. \
slide your new rotor in... out your bracket back in with the caliper (you may have to get a "C" clamp to push that piston in a littler bit to get it over the rotor ( this is because there is more rotor and if you did your pads, more pads as well.. so it wont fit back how it was with the old rotor and or pads. you have now got everything hooked back up and your wheels are back on. its now time to test drive. before backing out on a sloped surface. please tap your brakes until you feel pressure ( you pushed the piston back so you may have no brakes for the first 2 or three times you tap it.
lastly if you did put new pads in, to avoid squeeks, on either side of the pad are the lips the stick in place to hold them within the bracket. lube those up with brake lube ( you buy them in small packets for a buck each) this is important in preventing annoying sqeeky brakes

Front end has a noise that sounds like a helicopter, or a tire out of round. the tires are good

sounds like a wheel bearing to me. That would make a really loud noise if you jack the car up, and turn that wheel it should make the noise you hearing. Make sure you have brake pads and the rotors are not warn.

My 2002 Toyota Avalon is shaking when I apply the brakes. I have replaced the front and rear brake pads and the front rotors with Raybestos ones. It still shakes. Could the rear rotors be warped?

That's what I would imagine. It is usually the front rotors that warp due to the fact that they work a little harder than the rears. However, rear rotors can warp. If you feel the shake more in the body of the car, so in the seat and you feel like the whole car is moving and the steering wheel stays mostly calm then I would imagine the rear rotors are warped. However if the shaking is felt mostly in the brake pedal and the steering wheel shakes too then it is probably your front rotors. Shops can usually resurface rotors and it may be cheaper than buying new, so that could be an option for you.

How do I remove the rotor from a 97 Toyota Avalon?

remmove the brake caliper and bracket and remove rotor. If the rotor is seized on the hub, loosely install two lugnuts(to keep the rotor from falling all the way off when you knock it loose) and hit the center portion of the rotor (part that the studs go through) with a hammer. Do not hit the part that contacts the brake pad. You might have to hit it hard so use a 2-3 lb hammer and don't be afraid to hit it just don't hit a stud or the rotor surface.

Brake light on dash won't turn off.

I just had my brakes done (all 4 rotors replaced and brake shoes) on my 99 Camry, and when I took it for a test drive, the Brake light was on. The way I got rid of it was by disconnecting the battery for a minute or 2. It reset whatever was causing it to stay on.

Hope this helps.

Problem changing rear rotors on 95 Toyota Avalon

Just remove the rear rotors, bull the straight off, after removing the caliper bracket. It would be a good idea to spray the small brake shoes with brake cleaner. No need to remove anything other than the rotor.
