If you have change brakes before - it's the same.

Buy OEM pads.
Take off wheel.
Remove two bolts.

Lift/Take off the brake assembly, be careful to not hang by hose.
Check Rotor for uneven wear - should be smooth.
Depending on driving habits, the rotor may need resurfacing/ replacing - your call.

Note the various clips by lining up the new parts exactly the same as the old one.

Remove clips/pads/shims.

The trick to sliding the brake assy back on later as the new pads are thicker, is to move back the part that pushes the pads together. This is a round part and probably made an indent in the old brake pad or shim.

Using a piece of wood adn a C-Clamp, slowly move back the rod. You can use a piece of wood adn brute force if you don't have and C-Clamp.
Be careful not to mar/nick/damage the parts

Replace pad and clips.
Use grease the OEM parts usually provide.

Slide back on brake assembly, replace bolts, note torque.
Replace wheel.
Turn on and pump brakes.
Drive slow and check work.

The other side should be faster now that you did one side.

If you insist on doing it yourself, your best bet is to buy a repair manual for $20 or so. It will also give the the rotor specs to measure whether they need to be changed at this time. I say insist because break repair isn't something that one can afford to do incorrectly.

The piston goes in but the other side of the bracket has sliding pins that are probably frozen in place. Get rebuilt, loaded calipers with the brackets attached and new pads already in place for about $110 each side and the repair is easier. Just did it.

SOURCE: Brake rotors

Are there small retainer clips on the studs still? More than likely its just rust built up on the center hub. Take some sand paper to the center hub, as long as e-brake is released and caliper is off, it will come off. I'm not familar with the toyota sienna's but if they have internal drum e-brakes, I would back off the adjuster if they do.

SOURCE: how do i change the brakes and rotors on my 2004

When you say fit properly I assume you mean it's not going back together. Make sure you have the bearings and races installed correctly on the back side and that you are installing the correct rotor on the correct side with the correct bearings. The front and rear bearings look the same but they aren't and if you try putting that rotor on with the front side bearing installed in the rear of the rotor it will never go back together.

Changing the rear disk brakes on a 06 toyota sienna, what is the process?


-Set up jack and properly block front tires.

-Do not set parking break as this may hender removing the rear calipers. Open hood and remove the brake resevoir cap.

-Remove hubcaps if applicable,

-Loosen Lugnuts but do not remove,

-Jack up van,

-Remove tire.

-Caliper should be visible. There are two bolts or hex heads on the back side that can be a pain to remove sometimes.

-Pull the caliper off the rotor, It is recomended to have the rotors turned or replaced. With the old pad still in place, take a c clamp or brake caliper squeezer and compress the caliper

-remove old pad, take note for the reinstall of the new pad.

-reverse the steps. This is a simple break down. Hope it helps

Rear brake pads wear out every 30000 miles on 2002 3/4 tod hd , rotors are pitted bad


That's to be expected and is completely normal.

Rear brake shoes as fitted to drum brakes can typically last up to 60k miles with periodic adjustments, but you have rear disc brakes and the shoes will typically last half of that.

Also, modern brake pads no longer contain asbestos and are now made using harder metallic compounds; the direct result is that brake discs (US=rotors) are also considered to be consumable items as they are worn down by the harder pads. It's not unusual to have to replace front discs every other pad change and rear ones with every pad change; in both cases the mileage will typically be around 30k miles on most models.

It sounds like the piston is not compressed all the way. When compressing the piston did you open the bleeder valve? If you just let the fluid back up into the system, it may retain enough pressure to push it slightly back out. It could also contaminate the antilock system.

How to replace brake pads & rotors


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.

Front brakes 2008 toyota sienna


No special tools needed, just a 17mm, 21mm. I do not recommend people without training do their own brakes, it is too dangerous to risk peoples lives just to save a few bucks. Also, any pads other than Toyota's will make noise and squeal, so if noise will bother you, use Toyota pads and resurface the rotors.
