You don't mention what year , make , model of your car, but, I don't recall any bolts that are reverse thread in that area, remember, lefty LUCy, righty TIGHTy and the bolts should be tight, you might need a cheater bar.

Rear brakes on a 2006 Camry offer 2 configurations. I have the one with a single bolt on the bottom and a pin on the top. Please help me understand how to get this off ?


you are probably trying to get the callipers of by not removing the correct bolts
calliper mount bolts are 2 studs that hold the calliper frame onto the axle and by undoing these bolts the calliper assembly can be lifted off the rotor within the length of the brake hose

I have a 83 Bronco 351w I am doing the brakes and the passenger side rotor needs to be replaced can someone walk me through this thanks


Personally I would replace both rotors to prevent a future brake imbalance.

* chock rear wheels, raise front of vehicle and place on stands.

* remove wheels, remove brake calliper and bracket assemblies.

* remove bearing hubs from axles, via removal of bearing adjustment nut

*remove hub seals, clean and inspect bearings, repack with HT bearing grease.

* the brake rotor bolts to the rear of the hub, you will have to remove and replace rotor to hubs, make sure all bolts are thread locked with loctite 263 and tensioned to spec.

* pack hub with grease, install seals, fitt hub assembly and adjust wheel bearing preload, install new split pins.

* fitt brake calliper and brackets, fit new brake pads,

* fitt wheels lower vehicle, test brake for function

Hope this helps..

How do you replace front pads


remove the callipers from off the disc rotors. remove the loose pad and use a piston mover to push the inner pad and piston fully back into the calliper .replace the pads and slip calliper back over the disc and re-tension mount bolts
make all spring and plates are replaced in the correct positions
when doing this I open the bleed nipple for the calliper I am working on as I push the piston back. It makes it easier and doesn't overfill the reservoir. When the piston is full back tighten the bleed screw
when the job is done pump the brake pedal several times to adjust the clearance of the pads back onto the disc.

What tool removes the calipers to change the brake pads?


You will need a 17MM Socket Or a 15MM socket depending on wheel size
Behind the calliper locate the two bolts, Not the bolts on the case around calliper , But on the calliper it'self then remove bolts and remove calliper replace pads, Put the bolts back tighten, And then brake pad change is complete.

Changing the front brake pads.


first off, you need to buy the break pads, break caliper spreader, and you need to know if the bolts have a allen wrench head or a torques head, you can find that out by turning your wheel all the way to the left after you remove the front left tire, take a small hand mirror and look on the back side of the calliper, once you know what it is, you need the socket or wrench that fits it, remove the bolts, then the calliper will pull off by wiggleing it off, then remove the outside pad, take the break calliper spreader and place it the way the break pad sat and screw it pushing the calliper cylinder back as far as possible, then take the calliper spreader off and remove the other pad, install the new pads into the break calliper and replace the calliper back onto the router, (the round disc the calliper was on) line up the holes on the calliper and replace the bolts.......once you have put the calliper back on you must pump the peddle untill they are hard again, about 3-6 times or untill you cant go to the floor anymore. once they are solid again, replace your tire and you should be good to go.....................hope this helps.

I would like to find out what tool's are needed and the best way to replace pads and rotor's.


You should need a lug wrench to remove the wheels, a jack and axle stands to get your car off the ground (it's good to wedge something on the wheels you're not working on). You will also need some sort of pry bar to force the callipers open and a screwdriver or impact wrench to undo the bolts that secure the rotors in place.

The basic procedure is lifting the car, removing the wheels, forcing the callipers open, removing the worn pads (this depends on the vehicle you're working on), undoing the bolts that secure the rotor (that might have rusted in place and if so, will require a rotor puller) removing the rotor, putting the new rotor in, screwing it down, placing the new pads (with a special grease between the pads and callipers that prevents brake squeaking), properly securing the new pads (triple check it, if in doubt, check again), connecting the "worn pad indicator" wire (if there is one) and putting the wheels back on.

This is a basic guide, not a proper how-to. If in doubt, go to the shop. There are things with which un-instructed people should not mess with. Your life depends on a job well done.
