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.

Is it hex (like an allen screw) or is it a Torx or Torx plus? Torx are serrated.

SOURCE: How do I remove brake drum on 2005 toyota corolla

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.

Yes.

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.

SOURCE: what size wrench to remove brake calipers

Usually about 9/16. It should be SAE not metric, but if the standard is slightly loose, then you may be best off switching to metric socket.

How do i replace a 1993 toyota corolla front axle


if your talking about the drive (shaft ) axle
your gonna need a jack, some stands , wrenches pliers an impact wrench and a special socket to remove the axle nut.
you basically remove the tire , brake caliper and pads, and swing them out of the way, then loosen the axle shaft nut, pop it with the hammer to break it loose, then take the lower control arm parts and sway bar parts loose and out of the way so you can pull the axle shaft out of the transmission , move anything out of the way that makes it hard for you to get what you need done. BE CAREFUL WHEN doing this because the shock assembly is under pressure and can Jump loose and smash your hand or even kill you. but it can be done .

Toyota corolla ae110 brakes binding


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.

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

Are there any special tools needed to change the brakes on a 2006 toyota sienna? Standard two bolts that hold it on?


You will probably not need anything other than a metric socket wrench set.

Many Toyota models have disc brake calipers that will flip up or down when you remove one of the two bolts that hold the calipers on. I am not sure of the setup on the Sienna.

When you remove either the upper or lower bolt and move the caliper, you can then remove the old pads. Also, you will need to push the piston(s) back into their cylinders to give you enough space to install the new pads. A large C clamp will usually suffice to push in the pistons.

I assume that you are talking about the front (disc) brakes. Some autos still have drum brakes on the rear, and those are a different story. They require several specialty tools to remove and replace the shoes.

Do you need to remove the nut in the middle of the rotor for removal on a 2005 Toyota Corolla?


If your talking about removing the rotor, no.

Remove the brake caliper off to the side and the rotor will slide right off.

Removing front rotor


When you take off the wheel, you then need to take off the caliper witch is held on by 2 bolts, (may require a special socket) after removing caliper carefully let it hang by brake line. Then the rotor should slide right off.
