Question about 2007 Toyota Highlander Hybrid
I am replacing the rotors and pads on my 2007 Toyota highlander I able to do the pads ok but the rotor not so much. What tool and size tool do I need? I have a 1/2" impact wrench.
The rotors are knock off rotors. They are just rusted and stuck to the hub. DO NOT REMOVE THE AXLE NUT. this will not help you get the rotor off. Instead use a large hammer and hit the rotor from the back side. Several good whacks should break it free.

SOURCE: 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.

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.

I have a 2006 Sequoia which should have the similar if not the exact same brake system. Changing the pad is very easy and straight forward. No special wrenth was involved. Easier than sedans since no worry to damage the brake fluid pipe.

And make sure you pay special attention to the proper torque when you put it back on as well as take care when you remove this since the bearing are apt to fall out.
