2003 s type brake front pad - what tools are need to change the pads

the front pads are pretty straight forward,just a c clamp is sufficient to press the calibers,make sure the brake fluid reservoir cap is off when you do them..just unbolt the calibers from the rotors and they work the same as standard brakes,but the rear calibers at time will need a caliber tool to turn and press the piston simultaneously

Jack up car, remove the wheels, take out the two retaing bolts on the brake caliber, slide caliber up off brake disc, remove old brake pad, use a C-Clamp or big pair of Channel locks to compress the piston in to the brake caliber, Insert new brake pads onto caliber, slide brake caliber back over brake disc, reinstall the 2 retaining bolts. put tire back on. Repeat this till you have replaced all pads that you are going to change. ***Caution.. Before putting the car in gear, crank it up and pump the brake pedal till you have a firm brake pedal. If you fell to do this you will have no brakes due to the pistons on the calibers are compressed and are not seated on the discs.

How do you take the front caliper off a 1990 toyota camry? i undid the 2 bolts on it, now do i just pull or what?

You can sometime just pull it off but sometimes you will need to take a screwdriver and push the brake pad back on the caliber piston side. This will force the piston back and allow you to remove the caliber. After you remove it you will need to compress the caliber piston fully back in order to allow room the install the new pads and get them back on the rotor. Sometimes you can fully compress it while the caliber is still installed. On some vehicles like Honda you need a special tool in order to compress the caliber. Most auto parts stores will lend you the tool if you buy the pads from them. Be sure and loosen the master cylinder fill cap to allow the brake fluid to expand in the master cylinder. Clean everything off with spray brake cleaner before installing the new pads and clean the new pads throughly. Be sure and install pads in pairs. Do both front wheels or both back wheels not just one.

Rear brake caliber piston will not compress to put on new pads.

You need a special tool for that. On the back pistons, they have to be turned in, not compressed like the front do, and just turn them in far enough to get the new pads on. Also tourqe the wheel lugs down to the spec's for that car, or the rotors will warp later on down the road.
