Question about 2004 Toyota Sienna

1 Answer

How often should I have to replace the front brake pads and front rotors on a 2004 Toyota Sienna? We had them done at 30,000 and the dealer this morning says that we need them done again at 57,000 (two years later). We live in the suburbs and, aside from an annual 10-hour trip north, we use the car primarily to run local errands.

This sounds about right, 30,000 miles for mostly local runs, but rotors should be resurfaced instead of replaced every brake job, aset of good rotors can be cut at least twice between brake jobs.

How do i replace front rotor in 2004 toyota sienna


1. Put your car on a level spot for safety and start your car Sienna.
2. For left front rotor, turn your steering wheel to the left all the way and stop the engine. DO NOT put emergency brake on! Put stopping blocks on the passenger front front, rear right and rwear left for safety.
3. Half loosen all front left tire nuts and jack up the left front then loosen all nuts and take the wheel off.
4. Use a 3" G-clamp from Lowes, Home Depot or any store near you, press against brake cylinder so that brake fluid flows back to its reservoir
4. Remove one bolt on the caliper and the other bolt loosen and lift the caliper with the other bolt on and rest on a block. Do not take the rubber hose off nor attend to loosen any brake fluid pipes and nuts.
5. Remove brake pads and remove the nuts on the rotor, done.

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.

I would like to replace the front rotors, 2006 Toyota Sienna LE,can you describe the process? I can replace the pads but have not done rotors on front wheel drive before.


I don't believe I have enough space to expain it all so the best thing is to get a Sienna manual at your local auto parts store or on line and you can always refer to picturs too. This really helps - I'm a manual junky

How to replace brake pads & rotors


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.

Front brakes 2008 toyota sienna


No special tools needed, just a 17mm, 21mm. I do not recommend people without training do their own brakes, it is too dangerous to risk peoples lives just to save a few bucks. Also, any pads other than Toyota's will make noise and squeal, so if noise will bother you, use Toyota pads and resurface the rotors.

How to do front brake on 2008 toyota sienna


No special tools at all. Are you familiar with doing brakes? I wouldnt recommend it for a first timer, its not worth the lives of you and others. Ive also seen people take the wrong bolt out of calipers and spend triple what a brake job cost because they werent experienced and wanted to save a buck. A 17mm and pad spreader or big channel locks is all you need. Use Toyota pads and have the rotors cut..OR... Dont complain when they make noise all the darn time!
