I can only assume it is cheaper for them to manufacture drum brakes. Quite a few newish vehicles seem to still run drums on the back. They are usually the cheaper models. I would have thought discs would have been cheaper and less fiddly to make but it seems not.

How do ABS brake systems work on 2004 Rav 4's on icy roads


ABS systems are designed to engage when braking suddenly causing tire skid/spin...the system is designed to pump the brake pedal and the driver should hold the brake pedal down firmly...DO NOT PUMP...the ABS does this for you.

99 rav-4 wont come out of park


check to see if you blew a fuse your rav-4 has a switch that when you press on the brake it allows you to switch out of park but without pressing the brake you can't switch out off park. There should be an abs fuse or brake fuse or something of that order check it. Hopes it helps.

How do I change the rear brake rotor on my 2006, Toyota Rav 4?


Take off the tire, remove the bolts that hold the brake caliper on. Use a coat hanger to keep the brake hose from stretching. Do not allow the caliper to hang from the hose without support. Grab the rotoe and slide it off the studs.

2003 rav 4 2 ltr petrol changed front discs and pads now have lots of high pitch noise have taken apart and used lots of copper slip and its still happening talked to local toyota garage who said i mave...


someones trying to pull your chain.....the pads fit both sides of the disc(rotor)BUT if the discs were scored then the noise is the pads trying to bed into the scores/ridges....if you can feel a ridge of more than 1mm on the outer edge then you should replace the discs.(dont bother to undercut)then you would have no noise at all.as a matter of interest the front discs last no more than 30.000 miles.fact...unless you use the gearbox to slow down and not the brakes.then 40.000.

One of the dash board lights on my 2007 toyota rav 4 won't cut off, what is wrong with it? It's not the oil light


Sounds like the Orange engine light is on? If yes, the 07 Rav 4 is a great car but suffers greatly with Lambda faults. You need the code read to be sure plus there are 4 lambda's on your car.

If it is a Red triangle light staying on then it could be low brake fluid level.
