SOURCE: brakes new but still make a rubbing noise

Some brake pads have a small pin sticking up for the e brake that pad must be on the outside when not installed for the e brake or the caliper will not push it out straight. Remove the pads and check for wear on the caliper face and make sure you have them installed correctly I put a pad in backwards once it worked but made a noise

SOURCE: brake pad replacement 02 Sienna

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: How do I change the brake pads on my sienna

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.

SOURCE: door trim sienna 07

On the inside trim, you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that covers the screws) that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls.

SOURCE: Please help....I replaced the front brake pads on

check the dust shield that is behind the rotor. It should be attached to the steering knuckle. if it is bent and touching the rotor it will squeak. I would jack the passenger side of the car up and remove the wheel. Once you have done that try to spin the rotor. Try to get it to squeak. It may also be dirt on your brake pads. If it came back after a week it is most likely dirt. Try a couple cans of Braklean while you have it apart.

I just put 2 brand new sets of rotors and pads on my 02 s10 4wd because there is a scrubbing noise on the front passenger side brakes. after replacing them one time the drivers side is fine but when you...


Its possible that the driver side is not clamping well. Sticky caliper piston. Forcing the passenger side to do most of the work. This will result in rapid overheating which will cause the passenger rotor to look bad after a short drive. Does driver side still look new? Do you feel any sideways pulling when braking? What prompted you to look again after changing rotors and pads? Since you first noticed noise on passenger side, indicating excessive wear, I think the problem is the drivers side caliper. You could try working caliper piston out and in a few tmes, but usually you want to replace a problem caliper.

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.

Passenger side front brakes locking up


There are a number of problems that can cause that. It could be a bad caliper which is either hanging up or not returning correctly. It could be a bad proportioning valve or ABS motor. It doesn't have to be the passenger caliper that is bad. If the driver side isn't moving then all the brake pressure will go into the passenger side. Check your pads for excessive wear also. Metal on metal contact will cause that or a heat cracked pad could be causing uneven pressure. Check your rotors for glazing as well. If the pads don't grab until high pressure is applied then the brake could lock up. Pads rotors and calipers should cost less than two hundred dollars and if you replace all of them then you shouldn't have to worry about them for another twenty thousand miles or so. Take out the ABS fuse and drive it first and see if it does the same thing. If it does, then it's not the ABS motor. To me, it sounds like a caliper hanging up. Good luck.

Brake pad replacement 02 Sienna


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.

My brakes are grinding/vibrating only on the passenger side. only happens between 0-45 mph and quits when i press on the brakes to slow myself. the dust plate is not in the way i blead the lines


The most likely cause for your brakes grinding, especially on one side, would be a warped rotor. As the wheel spins this warped rotor is making contact with the pads. As you apply pressure the pads make full contact with the rotor causing the noise to stop. The pads may also be bad. Too much heat will cause the rotor to warp. Your best bet would be to replace both the pads and the rotor as either of them can be causing the problem. I do NOT recommend changing just one side of your brakes as this causes uneven braking and is ultimately dangerous.

Its possible that the caliper slides are binding,the caliper is warped,the calipers piston is jamming,Basicly from what youve just said with the over heating you really should replace caliper,rotor,pads and flush brake fluid.The heat your talking about destroys all the rubber seals in thecaliper destroys brake fluid and severely weakens the rotor.If you take the pads out you are likely to find cracking in the pads.Make sure before you fix it that you know what caused it.Is it abs as it maybe a potential cause.
