No, just a 14mm wrench or socket to remove the lower caliper bolt, swing the caliper up and slide the pads out. Compress the caliper piston with large slip joint pliers. Lubricate the pad ends where they touch the slides and install new pads.

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.

its more or less and backing plate you can drive without it it keeps brakes cool and gravell free > speaking as a tech you should replace it?

I had what sounds like the same problem with my v6 2007 rav4. When the brakes were replaced at 27000 miles, the toyota tech had installed the caliper mounting pins in the wrong mounting place, what I mean is that one pin is shorter than the other and he put the top pin in the bottom and vice-versa. this allows the caliper to operate unevenly and wore down the pads on that side much faster than the other side because it was always rubbing and therefore warped the rotor from overheating. It took 2 trips back to the dealer and 2 independent shops before that was found.
