Question about 1999 Toyota 4Runner
On my 1999 toyota 4 runner the brakes are making a noise i checked and the pads are done .the caliper looks like a one piece setup how do you change the pads ? ive done other toyota's camry/celica but they don't look the same
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.

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Use scrap wooden wedges to pry between the rotor and the caliper ...inside and out until the calipers are fully withdrawn.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
