  1. Loosen the wheel lug nuts slightly.
  2. Raise and support the vehicle safely.
  3. Remove the wheels.
  4. Disconnect the brake hose from the caliper. Plug the end of the hose to prevent loss of fluid. Some brake lines have a union bolt and gasket type line attached to the caliper. Do NOT lose the washers.

Found out my brake lights are not working when the police pulled me over. Have a 2001 Celica. Checked the bulbs and fuse. I do not have an owners manual. What should I check next?


You can easily check your brakelight switch with a 12 volt test light. Probe the switch which is located on the brake pedal lever, make sure you have power coming in, and then depress the pedal by hand and make sure that there is power going out the other side of the switch. The brakelight switch is the only one with just two wires on the pedal. Thank you, Dana

Grinding noise


Usually a grinding noise in a disc brake is caused from a rotor with a raised edge that froms from normal wear. The raised edge is not a big deal until you install NEW disc brake pads. All of the sudden you have a grinding noise everytime you apply the brake because the NEW disc pad is being ground down but the raised surface created from the OLD Disc Brake Pad. Most of the time the Brake repair shops turn rotors on the car when the pads are replaced and this grinding symptom does not manifest itself.

On and OLD set of disc brake pads over time that raised area on the rotor starts to flake / rust / corrode and can come in contact with the brake disc pad when the brakes are applied.


Hope this explains it well enough.

Thanks for using FixYa.

2001 toyota celica head sticks, possible oil pump replacment. Can't find the manual to replace oil pump.


Replacing the oil pump is a major job which involves tearing into the engine. I don't know what you mean that the cylinder head sticks, but I can assure you that just replacing the oil pump is not going to fix your problem.

How to fit handbrake shoes on a 98 toyota celica


Are you saying you only had front brakes with the back brakes removed? The hand brakes would have been null. How could it pass inspections ?
A quick trip to the library will help. Ask for the auto service manual.
You can also check eBay for a Service Manual.
