Question about 2006 Scion tC

2 Answers

No brakes/pressure So after changing nearly everything (front rotors and pads, rear rotors and pads, both rear calipers, and master cylinder) and then bleeding the system three times starting from rear passenger side to rear driver and then front passenger and then front driver. Then also bleeding master cylinder and abs unit twice still have no brake pressure when car is on. Also makes a hissing sound like air escaping when pushing pedal. Anybody have any ideas

try to jump start your car and disconnect negative battery terminal if the car dies your alternator probably is bad. take it off the car and bring your alt. to autozone for a free test. by the way it would help to know year and model and year. have a good day.
p.s check your brake fluid level

SOURCE: My front brakes were grinding

my first suggestion would be to take it apart and re-inspect everything. double check that you have it put together right. when you install brakes you should be able to turn the rotor and hear if something is rubbing. if all is on right then you may have a caliper that is hanging up and engaging the brakes all the time.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 scion xb, I have replaced brake pads

Hello and welcome to FixYa!

When you open be bleed valve, does the fluid flow solid when brakes are applied? If yes then the problem will be on the hydrovac. You can have a vacuum leak that's why the brake pedal stays on the floor. If the fluid is not solid then you'll need to bleed it out some more. You may need to replace the hydrovac to get your brakes working normally again.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

Power steering is winding and drakes are sticking


There are at least 2 items that will cause your problem. The first is when you changed the pads you place the caliper in a different place on the support pins that the caliper slides on to centralise the brakes on the rotor. These mounting pins are prone to rusting up and actually keeps one pad on the rotor as the caliper cannot centralise during brake application. The second is a problem that occurs when the brake fluid is pushed back into the master cylinder reservoir from pushing the piston back into the caliper. Muck in the lines is pushed back into the compensating ports in the Master cylinder causing the brakes to drag and build up pressure from the heat generated by having the brakes on. Try flushing out the brake system using metholated spirits or replace the master cylinder

Rear pad removal?


Here ya go! This is for the rear brake pads removal:

Removal & Installation
  1. Remove the brake master cylinder filler cap. Check brake fluid level in brake master cylinder reservoir. Remove fluid until brake master cylinder reservoir is half full.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the wheel and tire assembly.
  4. Inspect the brake pads for wear or contamination. If worn, damaged or past specification, install new components.
  5. Remove the caliper pin bolts.
  6. Remove the rear disc brake caliper.
  7. Remove the brake pads and rail clips.
  8. Inspect the disc brake caliper for leaks. If leaks are found, disassembly is required.
  9. Installation is the reverse of removal. Observe the following torques:
    • Caliper bolts: 27 ft. lbs. (36 Nm)
  10. // // 0) preLoad.src = ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_ImageArray[i]; } ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.lastIndex = 30; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.populateLog = theForm.elements['ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_PopulateLog']; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.treeViewID = 'ctl00$cphLeft$chRepairTreeNav$tvTOC'; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.name = 'ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data'; //]]>

Disk brakes are automatically self adjusting. If you have too much travel in the pedal, bleed the brakes. Let us know if you need the procedure.

Replace disc pads procudure


They are actually pretty simple, but check or replace the rotors before you install new pads. The front discs have 2 bolts per caliper as do the rears. There are hardware clips that are different on the front and rear.

You unbolt the caliper and tie it up with a rope or coat hanger so the caliper does not hang by the brake hose. Service the rotors and then when you are ready to replace the caliper, you take off the master cylinder cover. Then you use a "C" clamp to drive the caliper piston flush into the caliper. Doing this will force Brake fluid back into the Master cylinder. This is why the Master cylinder cap must be off. Attach the brake pads with a chemical to eliminate rattles and then slide the loaded caliper over the rotor. Attach the 2 bolts on the caliper and then you are ready to bleed the system.

Repeat this on each wheel and then bleed all 4 wheels. There will be very little air in the system using this method. The back brakes have the E-Brakes inside the rotors. If you pull off the rear rotors you will have to loosen the E-brakes by turning the Starwheel inside the rotor to allow for more clearance. Adjust the same Starwheels by tightening until independent wheel drags substantially, then loosen up 5 or more clicks on the Starwheel.

The calipers will take care of themselves and center themselves through use. Thats about all I can say about this process. I hope this helps you.

THEN CHECK YOUR BRAKE FLUID LEVEL IN MASTER CYLINDER MAKE SURE ITS NOT LOW. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE FIRM BRAKES BEFORE DRIVING.IF YOU HAVE ANY PROBLEMS CHANGING FRONT BRAKE PADS YOU CAN GO TO ANY AUTO PARTS STORE AND BUY A HAYNES REPAIR MANUAL.

Good afternoon, I have a Skoda Fabia Combi 1.4 TDI...


It can be the wheel Hub bearings. The rotors if warped will wear out pads early. Bad calipers are another possibility as well as a bad Master cylinder.

If the Hub bearings are bad your tires will have cupping. If the tires are okay the rotors are warping from contact with the pads. The pads won't release if the calipers are jamming OR the Master Cylinder is keeping pressure to the calipers.

You can get a pressure check done on the Master cylinder to see if the pressure is releasing when your foot is off the brake. If the pressure is releasing then the calipers are probably sticking. Make sure to use new brake hardware and a lubricate for the hardware when you assemble the calipers.

Replace brake hoses,they have an inner core that has ruptured and the outside rubber core is keeping pressure on the caliper with you foot off the brake. This will fix it! A common problem for this vehicle.
