Question about 2007 Toyota Yaris
Scraping noise from n/side suspect brake pads
The noise you hear is normal when it's time to change the pads. After you've purchased your brake pads (usually $20-30 depending on where you go, quality, etc), take your front tire off and take the 2 bolts out that hold your brake caliper on. You should be able to lift the calipers upward above the rotors and remove the old pads (they just snap in). Be careful not to put too much stress on the line connected to the calipers as these lines are full of brake fluid. Breaking or cracking this line is not good. Just hold them in one hand as you change the pads. When you put the whole thing back on the rotor, you'll need to compress the pads, otherwise they won't fit. I usually use a long screwdriver and pry the pads back. This will ensure you will be able to match the holes up for your two bolts to go back in. Repeat on the other front wheel. Hope this helps.
