Yes, the process is the same. the ABS sensor isn't physically attached to any of the brake components, so don't sweat it. (please rate my answer)

You are safe to do it yourself just like on non ABS. If you want an extra safety tip disconnect the Battery first. Also while you are at it I would suggest flushing your Brake Fluid while you are at it. Brake Fluid collects water over time and can cause corrosion.

How to change front brake pads on a Toyota Corolla 1.4i 2006/2007


One side at a time

if rotors are serviceable
undo the lower calliper bolt .. loosen the top one

take note of the clips position or take photos as you go
swing up the calliper from the bottom

g clamp the calliper piston in till it stops
check the calliper slide are loose and working

pull out the old pads fit the new

What tool removes the calipers to change the brake pads?


You will need a 17MM Socket Or a 15MM socket depending on wheel size
Behind the calliper locate the two bolts, Not the bolts on the case around calliper , But on the calliper it'self then remove bolts and remove calliper replace pads, Put the bolts back tighten, And then brake pad change is complete.

Changing the front brake pads.


first off, you need to buy the break pads, break caliper spreader, and you need to know if the bolts have a allen wrench head or a torques head, you can find that out by turning your wheel all the way to the left after you remove the front left tire, take a small hand mirror and look on the back side of the calliper, once you know what it is, you need the socket or wrench that fits it, remove the bolts, then the calliper will pull off by wiggleing it off, then remove the outside pad, take the break calliper spreader and place it the way the break pad sat and screw it pushing the calliper cylinder back as far as possible, then take the calliper spreader off and remove the other pad, install the new pads into the break calliper and replace the calliper back onto the router, (the round disc the calliper was on) line up the holes on the calliper and replace the bolts.......once you have put the calliper back on you must pump the peddle untill they are hard again, about 3-6 times or untill you cant go to the floor anymore. once they are solid again, replace your tire and you should be good to go.....................hope this helps.

How to change back brakes? I can't get the brake cylinder to go in.


Do you mean back brake pads or the back brake callipers?
To change pads you need to use a rear brake pads changing tool to screw in the calliper piston or if you are experienced enough you could screw in the calliper with a two mm thick piece of metal sheeting that fits into the grove of the piston.
If you need to replace the whole calliper remove the hand brake cable first and clamp the flexible brake hose remove brake hose, remove the callier with cylinder and then remove the calliper holder. fit new holder pads and locks and the calliper with the piston and the brake hose and the hand brake cable. Bleed the brakes. Mike

Brack pad change on 2003 volvo s40


It is the same as the older cars.
Just change the pads as usual.
It`s when you come to bleed the brakes that problems arise.
