SOURCE: Replace rotors on 2003 4runner
I have never changed it on a 4runner yet, but it's all pretty much the same. Jack the car/truck up, take off the wheel. Loosen the 2 or more bolts holding the caliper to the wheel spindle (the caliper is the C shaped part holding the pads). Take off the caliper, being careful not to rip or break the brake hoses that are bolted to the caliper. DO NOT TAKE THE HOSES OFF! it seems tempting to save time and be sure not to break them, but if you take them off the calipers you will need to bleed the air out of the system, which usually takes a bit of time. Just rest the caliper on the suspension table or any place where it won't fall too easily and where it wont put the hoses in danger. Now with the caliper off, both the pads and the disc should be free to move and remove. On some models the pads are hooked directly to the caliper, and some others like the ones on my toyota echo are in a holder the bolts back on to the caliper. The disc is usually just resting on the wheel studs and should be able to be removed without doing anything to it. In some rare cases, there will be one bolt holding it back, but its just there for centering purposes and is not necessary. So just put the new disc back on, put the pads back on the caliper or in the holder depending on the model, then bolt the caliper assembly back into place and put the wheel back on. And your done, you just need to put the car down and take the jack out.

Hello, and welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to assist you.
More often than not, head gasket failures will result in an immediate overheat condition, and you will see billowing clouds of white smoke coming from the tailpipe.
To answer your question, the time to replace both head gaskets is about 10-12 hrs, at your local labour rate. My service department would charge 900 dollars labour. Then, figure about an additional 3-400 dollars in a gasket set, oil, filter, coolant and any machine-shop work that would be needed to true the cylinder head mating surfaces.
Before you do any of that...
Personally, I would suggest that you inspect the water pump on your vehicle. This is where you are most likely going to find you leak. 4Runner V-6s are known for the impeller shaft seal on the water pump to leak. To see/inspect the water pump, you will have to remove all of the plastic covers that are fitted to the front of the engine. Once they are all removed, you will see the water pump in the center of the cylinder block. If you see any evidence of pink or white crusty materials on or under the pump, you have found your problem...and, it is MUCH cheaper to change the pump, as opposed to doing the head gaskets.
I hope this helps you out.
Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

You Have one fuse for the wipers in the car. Left side of steering wheel and the back cover should list the fuses and location. The other box is located in the engine compartment above the battery. They should list the fuse locations under the compartment covering the fuses. Hope that helps
