To change these pads is simple. You first should wash down the area with brake clean so you don't inhale the dust. Then they are to pins that go through the top of the pads and the caliper. (This Caliper has pistons on bothsides) You them remove the metal clips that hold those two pins. with a needle nose pliers. after removing the clips you will be able to remove the two pins and remove pads. Using the old pads in place you can then push back the piston to make room for the new pads.

First you have to clean the surface of the brake pads, with a sand paper to make it rought and as well the brake disc and then return evry thing back it will not make noise if the pads are origional.

Raise the vehicle up and remove the rims & tires

Remove the brake pads, and then remove the calipers from the caliper retention brackets, do NOT remove the brake hoses from the calipers.

Remove the caliper retaining brackets from the hub assemblies (2 large bolts on backside of the bracket)

Tap the brake rotors off of the hubs, hit them from the back side of the rotor.

No big mysteries here, this is a very easy job.

SOURCE: replace front brake pad 2003 toyota 4 runner

Diagram is unnecessry.
Pull both front wheels
Work one at a time leaving the other for reference
Find the retention spring ... its a paperclip thickness wire spring... dislodge center retention loop and undo from both ends which engage brake pad retention rods.
Pull the rods out
Pull the old pads out... laying everything on the ground
Use scrap wooden wedges to pry between the rotor and the caliper ...inside and out until the calipers are fully withdrawn. Use the new pads to measure if they are far enough back.
Note... the brake fluid will have dropped in the master cylinder over many months of wear... do not fill it. When the calipers are pushed back they will fill the reservoir again... one wheel at a time.
Be sure to identify the correct pad based on what you took out and what is on the other side (if you screwed up the layout)
Make sure to take the old antisqueek backing plate from the old pad and place it on the new pad. They don't use lubricant on these anymore.
Replace the pads... the retention rods... then the retention spring
Do the other side
Then progressively step on the brake peddle until full tension is felt
Check the master cylinder reservoir... probably needs no additional fluid.
New pads will register in existing ridges in each disc in no time at all.
You should check the discs to see if they need to be replaced during this operation...using some calipers

Brake problem hard to press on 1995 toyota 4 runner. replaced calipers and pads rotors and bleed the lines three times. Is it the master cylinder or power booster


When you expeirience a hard brke pedal the first thing to diagnose is a bad or inop power brake booster. First thing to check is the vacume check valve on the booster housing that is connected to a vacmue hose. Be sure you do have vacume from the hose first before replacing check valve.

My 4runner breaks fail atimes. what can I do to resolve this? Brand is toyota 4runner 1999 model v6 engine (5vz) Whenever I apply break softly, the break pedal goes all the way down. I have changed all...


Calipers need to be replaced.
Brake fluid needs to be flushed completely through 4 wheels.
If you are not comfortable to do it your self then have a shop to do it. These calipers can be rebuilt, but I would go with new ones.It is recommended to have brake fluid flushed every 3 years. The brake fluid is subjected to absorb moisture over time. When it has moisture, it combines with dust causing some clogged up at moving surface locations as cylinders inside calipers. New brake fluid in the line can maintain the brake performance as it is designed to do so. Flushing is not the same as filling up. Good luck.

'96 Toyota 4-Runner makes a loud squealing noise and brake light


Sounds like one of the auxillary belts slipping it may just need tightening up. I think the 4-Runner has two belts one large and one for the steering pump

You need to reset the light with a scan tool, the same one you used to read the code in the first place.
