SOURCE: rear brake to remove replace disk and service due binding

Preliminaries Do 1 wheel at a time Use a jackstand on the wheel you are working on (safety First) Remove the tire on the selected wheel
The Brake caliper is usually held on by 2 bolts. Some of the bolts are Allen wrench type, usually about ¼ inch or 5/16 inch. Remove and the complete brake caliper can be lifted off the rotor. The pads can now be removed. Before installing the new pads you must first return the pad piston to their original position in the caliper. Open the hood of the engine compartment and remove the cover on the master cylinder. This allow the brake fluid to be returned to the master cylinder. To return the pad piston to the original position you will need a C clamp and a flat piece of metal like a small flat file. Put the flat piece of metal on the piston and use the C clamp to put pressure on the piston. Tighten the C clamp slowly and you will see the piston slowly retract into the caliper body. Now you can insert the new pads into the caliper. Mount the caliper over the rotor and reinstall the 2 bolts.

Loringh Hope this helps Good Luck PS Please leave a rating if Appropriate Thanks

How to remove and clean rear brakes on 2008 Toyota yaris


hi i have just done this to my toyota yaris 2007 its pretty simple just take off the wheel and hub, you will see the brake shoes take off bottom spring , cable and two pins with springs located in the center of the shoe (fixed with a round slotted washer) watch out for the cylinder/ram as it can come apart and will need replacing if there is a airleak. You could replace the ram and shoes as they are pretty cheap. You will need a screwdriver and needlenose pliers to do the job

My car has a sound coming from the rear wheels..checked the brake pads,they are fine....Mechanic says its a diff,and i hear it can be removed,then continue use the car with no problems.Please advice!!


Yaris is front wheel drive car. The noise may be coming out of the rear wheel bearings. This often happens if the bearings become aged or when the water traps into the bearings.
Thanks

How do I replace the power outlet located by my parking brake on my 2007 yaris?


The console finish plates in your Yaris are "snap-together". Just pry up on the front console sub-assembly (the upper plate around the shifter) and disengage the clips that secure it. move it forward far enough to get to the upper rear console sub-assembly (the panel around the shift lever). Pull the upper rear sub-assembly towards the front of the vehicle and up to disengage the clips that secure it to the console. You will then see the electrical connector on the back side of the power outlet. Disconnect the electrical connector and remove the upper rear console sub-assembly. Then just unscrew the large nut that secures the power outlet to the upper rear sub-assembly.
Reverse procedure to install..

Changing front brake pads


You shouldn't need to remove the calipers altogether just to replace the pads. You have remove the split pins or retaining springs on the old pads, then prize back the caliper pistons enough to remove them. Then push the pistons back some more enough to get the new pads in. Then reassemble and test.

The handbrake adjustment is at the handbrake. Pull off the rubber boot around the hand brake. (it pulls open at the botto of the handle and slips off over it). Next locate the 10mm bolt under the rear cup holder (there may be a little felt in there covering it). Remove the bolt.

Lift the console at the rear, it should pop loose at the front and lift up. You should have clear access to the adjustment bolt. Loosen the 10mm locking nut and this should allow you to adjust the cable.

Turn the adjustment clockwise to tighten the cable and once adjusted, re-tighten the locking nut. Reverse the whole process to put the console etc back together.
