Question about 1995 Toyota Previa
To check the brakes you can look through the wheel to see the pad thickness(1/8th min)then run you finger over the disc(rotor)to make sure you don have to much of a lip around the edge.(1/32 max.)as rotors only last around 40k and pads around 30k, i would change both together,difficulty 3/10 for diy mech.tools req pliers/mole grips(to grip brake pipe)/tyre iron(to force pistons apart,take off filler cap first)phillips screwdriver to take out screw in rotor,and a hammer
to release rotor from rust on the back of it.a range of metric spanners/sockets.to remove caliper from bracket and copper grease for the back of the new pads(to stop them squeeking).
put together the opposite of taking them apart,keep all bits in hubcap on top of wheel(you never have bits left over if you do this...)and prise apart pistons before you take caliper off the car,then apply molegrip to rubber pipe so they dont close up.
