Jack it up - take the wheels off, there are two bolts that hold the caliper to the wheel mounting.

Unbolt the 2 nuts (Get a Haynes manual for $20 if you can't work out which they are) and slide the caliper off the disk.

You can now swap out the old pads for the new ones but you will probably need to push in the caliper piston to make room to get the new pads back on the disk. Typically leave the old pads in and use a couple of large screw drivers or a small tyre levers to push the piston back into the caliper, check that the brake fluid reservoir is not too full to do this by checking the level frequently as you push the piston in, Once fully back you can put the new pads in the caliper and slide the caliper back over the disk - line up the holes for the bolts and re bolt the caliper back on. It really should be tightened to the right torque setting so again if you have a Haynes manual (Pep boys, Autozone etc.) you can see the right torque settings also.

I have a 2003 4runner with 102400 miles. It has started to have a squeak somewhere. Sounds like it is on the drivers side. I changed the front brakes and rotors about 10000 miles ago. How does a person...


The rear brakes last a long time since 80% of braking is on the front wheels. This helps keep the car in a straight line in hard braking where the front wheel lock up. The rear wheels keep rolling to keep the car in a straight line much like a fin on a rocket keep its path straight through the air. If you have never changed the rear brakes then it is time to check it. The squeak is caused by a device mounted is such a way so that it touches the brake disk when the pad wears to a certain point. Letting you know it is time for a new pad.

Take the car to quickfit, they will do a free brake check and,if required,fit front pads,rear shoes.Metro not good at breaking anyway,stops wheels from locking too quick....also as your car is fairly old change the discs as well.will make all the difference.

I have a 2006 Envoy on the dashboard there is a wrench next to an oil can. Also the car is making a squeaking sound.


the wrench means its time to change the oil and filter, the squeaking sound might be the brakes, it has a squeaker on the brake pads when they get worn down, the squeaker touches the brake rotor to tell you to get your brakes fixed, hope this helps,thanks robert b.

Front brakes make noise when applied after installing new pads.


it could be because they are dirty. also the noise could be the back brakes. if its a squeaking noise it could be that they are dirty or that they are cheep brake pads and for the first couple of weeks they squeak. also when you got your breaks changed did the break shop cut the rotors because that cleans them up and makes the rotors like new.

Did you replace the brake pad sensor? If they have not been replaced then you will continue to see the dashboard telling you to replace the brakes.
