This might happen independent of the mileage of the car. Usage determines the life span. Do replace if he has told you so. you will see that the pads are low when it is been removed.

Good luck.

Rear end feels really loose when turning from stop


Check the tire inflation. Also, if you can jack the tire up off the ground, rotate the tire and feel across the top of the tread. If there seems to be any high/low spots or feeling of side-to-side tread movement, you may have a separated belt in the tire. This can cause the "loose" feeling you are getting.

Toyota corolla vibration


could be worn down rotors (the big metal disc). The thinner rotor will not dissipate heat during braking and the pads get too hot to be able to grip the rotor and while braking you get a shudder effect

Check also the rear suspension as this can cause font tire wear un evenly

How do i replace front rotor in 2004 toyota sienna


1. Put your car on a level spot for safety and start your car Sienna.
2. For left front rotor, turn your steering wheel to the left all the way and stop the engine. DO NOT put emergency brake on! Put stopping blocks on the passenger front front, rear right and rwear left for safety.
3. Half loosen all front left tire nuts and jack up the left front then loosen all nuts and take the wheel off.
4. Use a 3" G-clamp from Lowes, Home Depot or any store near you, press against brake cylinder so that brake fluid flows back to its reservoir
4. Remove one bolt on the caliper and the other bolt loosen and lift the caliper with the other bolt on and rest on a block. Do not take the rubber hose off nor attend to loosen any brake fluid pipes and nuts.
5. Remove brake pads and remove the nuts on the rotor, done.

Brake light on the instrumentation panel on my Toyota Sienna 2004 is "on". The "foot brake" is not engaged. What should I do?


If your brake system seems to be operating ok, then more than likely the system is low on fluid. As brake pads wear, this allows greater travel in the caliper and thus the caliper piston has to travel further to make the pads come into contact with the brake rotor, causing the fluid level to drop in the reservoir. Once the fluid level drops so far, the brake warning lamp will illuminate. When you check the fluid level, also inspect under the vehicle and around the brake lines for and sign of brake fluid leakage that could be causing you to lose fluid as well.

Changing the rear disk brakes on a 06 toyota sienna, what is the process?


-Set up jack and properly block front tires.

-Do not set parking break as this may hender removing the rear calipers. Open hood and remove the brake resevoir cap.

-Remove hubcaps if applicable,

-Loosen Lugnuts but do not remove,

-Jack up van,

-Remove tire.

-Caliper should be visible. There are two bolts or hex heads on the back side that can be a pain to remove sometimes.

-Pull the caliper off the rotor, It is recomended to have the rotors turned or replaced. With the old pad still in place, take a c clamp or brake caliper squeezer and compress the caliper

-remove old pad, take note for the reinstall of the new pad.

-reverse the steps. This is a simple break down. Hope it helps
