How do i adjust the brake pedal on my 2007 Toyota Prius

your rear brakes are shot as they are the tightest
the fronts should grab hard when you press very hard
if they are mushy you need brakes bad
you should fell very comfortable that you have great brakes.
when you press the pedal it should feel strong after 1inch of play
mush means your gonna die or kills someone.
have your brakes bled as a service this will allow them to test them for you at same time . thats the limit you can adjust brakes.

How to change front disc brake rotors on 2005 toyota corolla

Replacing the rotors is usually a good idea if you experience shimmying when braking. It is recommend that you replace both the rotor and the brake pads at the same time. The reference for this information is from this site:

1. Jack up the vehicle and put some jack stands under it.
2. Remove the Lug nuts and the tire.
3. Carefully remove the caliper and caliper bracket.
4. Remove the old rotor. And replace it with the new rotor.
5. Reassemble the caliper bracket
6. Put on the new brakes pads and reassemble the caliper.
7. Put the tire and lug nuts back on.
8. Be sure to use the proper torque specifications.
9. Remove the jack stands and lower the vehicle.
10. Read torque the lug nuts to the proper specification.
11. Follow the link for details and photos.

2005 toyota corolla squeaky front brakes when braking at 10mph. changed brakes, rotors, controll arm, pad. What else noise is till there?

anti rattle plates are damaged, remove pads clean rear surface apply thin layer of silicon to pad allowing it to dry then reinstall as per std, this will stop the squeak, or replace anti rattles, silicon is cheaper will last the life of pad, but all new pads will have to be treated the in the same manner .

Engine runs fine as it heats up it feels like my brakes are grabbing and smells like brakes are on in gear ,but in neutral its ok.

You need to change your front brake calibers, they are not retracting as they should when you leave off the brakes.Yes get both sides if you dont the other will go shotly after and 2 new one will have better calibration and grab better

When I step on the brakes, you can feel a pulsating in the front end.

What you have is warped brake rotors. I would recommend having the rotors turned or replaced depending on thickness (don't for get to grease the slides for the brake pads).

How do I remove the rotor on my 2004 Matrix (corolla) I have the brake caliper and pads off. There are no screw holes to jack the rotor off.

If you also have the caliper bracket's just rusted onto the hub. If the rotor is to be replaced, hit it with a large hammer to break the rust. If you want to save it, use a piece of wood against the rotor, and then hit it with a hammer.
