How to adjust brakes on a 1994 Toyota Tercel

There are two methods of adjusting the brakes on your vehicle.
  • Start by pressing in the button on the hand (parking) brake lever and keeping it depressed while you pull it to the extreme of its travel
  • Have a friend listen to both rear wheels for a clicking sound (which indicates that the automatic adjusters are working)
  • Keep up this method until the lever begins operating at a lower position and gives just six clicks to activate.
  • If the foot pedal still seems low, We then have to go to the other method.
  • Take two chassis stands, or wooden blocks, but NOT concrete blocks as these may crush under the weight of the vehicle
  • Chock the front wheels at the back and front of each, so the vehicle is secure.
  • Next loosen the rear wheel nuts (lugs)
  • Jack up the rear of the vehicle and remove the nuts and wheels.
  • Look carefully at the brake drum and you will see two tapped holes which will accept twelve mm bolts (head or spanner size) The bolts should have at least three inches of thread.
  • Release the hand brake.
  • Insert the two bolts and tighten them at the same time, so that the drum is removed evenly.
  • Inspect the brake linings to make sure they don't require replacement.
  • Inspect the inside of the drums to make sure that they are free from ridges.
  • If they have ridges they should first be skimmed before using....and keep in mind that there is a minimum thickness that if exceeded means replacement of the drums.
  • At the upper part of the assembly you will see an assembly rod with a wheel in the middle and locked in place by a lever which rests against it....
  • Pull the lever away from the wheel and using a screw driver, turn the wheel so that the rod expands, becoming longer count each click of adjustment.
  • The adjusting wheel should only be moved the equivalent of one tooth at a time.
  • Adjust until the drum fits back and can revolve but a tiny swishing sound can be heard when rotating.
  • Carry out the same adjustment on the opposite side and reassemble.
  • Check the hand brake for correct movement.(six clicks to engagement)
  • Pump the brake pedal once or twice and the keeping your foot depressed on the pedal, start the engine.
  • The pedal should move lower as the servo becomes operational. (that's an additional test on a different part of the braking system) which I thought you like to know....If the pedal remains without moving, there is a defect in the servo unit.
All the best....Regards Johngee10

How do i replace the back shocks?

if you bounce the car by putting your weight on the rear bumper with your knee you can test the rear shocks. If the car bounces more than once on the way up you need shocks. I generally replace shocks on new cars with factory installed shocks anywhere from 40,000 - 50,000 miles. There are bolts at the top and bottom of the shocks that will have to be removed. You can do this a little easier by removing the rear wheels and placing the car on Jack Stands.
