Red triangle and brake warning after rear strut change 2007 prius


sounds like the battery plugs on the passenger side were disconnected and not connected. I don't think the brake sensor connectors have to be messed with in the wheel wells to change the struts but if you did you need to reconnect them checking for dirt in the connectors. It has been a long time so I hope you found the problem by now.

Struts noise?


I would tend to believe it's more likely a worn sway bar bushing or link if it's a rattle or a small clunk, if it's a loud clunk probably a strut, try bouncing he back of the car when parked, if you get the clunk probably a strut if only when driving,turning,braking probably just a bushing on the sway bar

How to replace rear shocks on a 86 Toyota celica gts?


This procedure can be found at autozone.com. You can register for free, listing make, model, year, and engine size. Find procedure under "repair guides". Good illustrations, too.
1. On liftback, remove rear speaker grilles. On coupe, remove suspension service hole cover or the speaker board (on rear deck by back window).

2Drum brakes or disc brakes? No matter: Do not break apart the brake lines. There is a clip on the strut to hold the brake line and it's connection to the rubber brake hose. Take the c-clip off and cut the brake line retainer with a hacksaw (careful of the brake line and hose). This way you won't have to worry about bleeding the brakes when done. Take the line out of the strut retainerclip. When re-installing, just use a zip tie to hod the brake line secure.
3. Loosen, but don't remove, the 19mm nut holding the suspension support to the strut (this is the larger center nut on top of strut at the deck by rear window.
4. Disconnect stabilizer bar at lower end of strut housing. You will need a 14mm wrench and a 3/16 (or equivalent metric size) allen wrench to hold the link steady while removing the nut.
5. Disconnect strut at the axle carrier-17mm size bolts.
6. At top, remove the three strut to body nuts-size 13mm., and remove the strut.
To put your new struts inside the coil spring, you will have to have a spring compressor. I don't have one, so after removing strut, took to a shop for that, cost was $20 for one side. Picked it up and installed it myself.
To install: Position assembly and tighten the upper strut to body nuts to 23 ft. lbs.
2. Tighten lower strut-to-carrier bolts to 119 ft. lbs..
3. Connect stabilizer bar to strut. Tighten the nut to 26 ft. lbs.
4. Tighten top strut holding nut to 36 ft. lbs. (the shop had already done this for me) and install dust cover.
5. Reconnect brake line and hose, and bleed the brakes, if you broke the line apart. If you didn't break the line apart and just cut the clip retainer, you will not have to bleed the brakes.
6. Lower the car and have rear wheel alignment checked.

If you have a spring compressor, and can do that procedure yourself, the instructions for it are found at autozone.com, along with the above that I have outlined.

Knocking noise at the rear of car only notice when 60mph or more


this is usually due to rear strut mounts coming undone. the rear strut mounts will come lose or brake if you slammed on your brakes really hard or hit a really bad bump or had a joker tow truck driver tow you out. the strut mounts are cheap but the labor is where they will get you. it will cost you between 200-300 dollars

When braking in our 1993 pontiact grand am there


Check to see if the rear strut is worn out. These cars are known for the strut to get dirt and water inside (normally there's a protective boot but they deteriorate in time) and it literally grinds the strut to where it gets very loose and wobbly. Also, the top mount rusts away causing the strut to bang around. Hope this helps!
