The brakes on my 2001 nissan frontier are slow, whats the price to replace them?

This really depends on whether you need to replace the pads or the pads and the rotors. Assuming that you need to only replace the brake pads on the front of the vehicle you are looking to pay somewhere between $80-$150 to get it taken care of. A great site that you can visit to find out how much common car repairs should cost is Let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Front brakes-2001 Nissan Sentra

You will need a jack and 2 jack stands to get the front wheels off the ground (break the lug nuts loose before lifting) and support the vehicle.

You will need the lug nut wrench (or a 1/2 inch breaker bar and 21 MM socket) to remove the wheel.

You will need a 14 MM wrench to remove the caliper bolts and possibly a flat head screwdriver to pry the caliper off of the pads if it is difficult.

You will need a big pair of channel lock pliers to compress the piston back into the caliper bore to allow room for the new pads.

You may need a hammer to hit the rotors to break them loose if they are rusted into place on the hub- a couple good shots should break them free if needed.

You will also need a wire brush and some good brake grease (available at any parts store). You will want to see any place that the pads contact a stationary surface and clean this area and apply a film of the grease to these points to prevent binding and uneven pad wear.

Hope this is helpful!!
