What size tool/kind of tool do i need to remove the big center star nut on my 2007 toyota highlander front rotor


The rotors are knock off rotors. They are just rusted and stuck to the hub. DO NOT REMOVE THE AXLE NUT. this will not help you get the rotor off. Instead use a large hammer and hit the rotor from the back side. Several good whacks should break it free.

2000 VW "front brakes" amber colored light is always on now..


the front pads have wear sensors built in so you can change the fronts only if you wish(genuine parts only,and you will have to get the system reset after.)
the special tool is required to force the pistons back into the calipers.you could do it yourself but as it requires you to buy the parts,take off the front wheels etc, by the time youve done all that,1 hours labour is all it cost for a dealer to fit them........and you dont get your hands dirty..........

Is it required to machine hubs when replacing brake pads


YES. you should have the rotors checked for wear and thickness before fitting new pads. If the rotor surface is work, cracked or badly deformed, replace the rotors. It would be best to have the rotors inspected by a professional workshop and machined if needed. Doing this will save you money and hassles in the future..

I am replacing the brake pads on my Kia 2007 Sedona; front and back is neeeded or just front? Took it to Kia dealer and mechanic showed me pads where very thin and needed replacement; all for $400! Heck...


If your rotors are good and fairly smooth, then a decent ceramic pad will work well. Just be aware that ceramic pads will require a slightly greater paddle pressure. They will last longer, dust up a bit less and will perform MUCH greater in stop and go traffic...

I suspect that 25 dollars per axle is a typical cost for good quality disc brake pads.

How much should it cost to replace rear brake pads on a 2007 Saab 93?


I had just 35000 KM's on my 2007 9-3 Aero when the brake pads were gone - dealer wanted... wait for it.... $900 to replace just the rear pads and rotors. Dealer also said that Rotors MUST be changed every time the pads are on this car. Purchased new OEM pads and rotors from autopartsway.ca and did the install myself. Took just over an hour, and I am not that mechanically inclined. Dealer will tell you that you need a special compression tool to push the pistons in... I used a C-Clamp and a pair of vice grips (tighten the C-clamp a bit, and rotate the piston with the vice grips... takes quite a while, but is cheap and effective).

I have a 98 dodge stratus, are the rear breaks rotors or disc?


You do not require a mechanic to do this job. lst remove any wheel front or back. You probably have front disk and drum on the back.
To remove the rotor, you will see two bolts holding brake capalier on the rotor. Remove these and pry the capalier from the rotor. Now you need to remove the pads. Simple to remove, but when replacing you need a 6 inch c clamp to force the pressure mechanism back into the rotor in order to replace the pads. Remove the rotors and have them researfaced any any machine shop. Cost around $10 per rotor. Pick you up some antisizing compound and high temp grease. Follow instructions on the label. Now remove a back wheel, if you do not see a rotor then its a drum. To remove a drum you will need a several tools to replace the drums. Purchase these at Harbor Freight or Sears. Much cheaper at Harbor freight. Now remove the other wheel and repair one wheel at a time, by checking back wsith the wheel that has not been disambled. Before replacing have the drums reserfaced. Now once the job is completed you need to tighten up the wheel by using the special tool which you purchased. Tighten a little at a time AND ONCE THE WHEEL becomes hard to turn back off a turn. Do the same thing to the other wheel. May take you all day to do the job. But it's the way I learned to do a brake job. Hope this is helpful.

Saturn Sl1 1998 Front Barke Rotors and Barke Pads


It's not that hard to replace, but there are some tools that your going to have to buy. If there is a Auto Zone in you're area, you can buy the brake pads and may be a new brake rotor if they look to worn out. The rotors are not that expensive any more. They also have the right tools to buy or you can use there tool loner program to get the job done and they have the step by step instructions to replacing the break pads. If you like you can log on to AutoZone.com and look up the instructions to replacing the brake pads on your car. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

2007 Rav 4- Front Brake pad growl during stops


I had a 2008 rav4 and within the first 10,000 I noticed this problem. Had the pads changed at 12, 22, 30, all free of charge from the dealer. Had the rotors replaced as well twice, the issue came up again & since it was a lease I threatened to sue and I was released from my term fee free. If you are having the same issue post here we need to open a dialogue. I'm sure many people have just paid for repairs without thinking it's an issue on the vehicle. Toyota will deny it until it's a media issue....

Front Brake pad Replacement 2007 1500 Suburban 4x4


If you have done any brake work before you can do this to. Its just a standard disc brake system, remove the caliper, compress the piston back, toss on some new pads and a new rotor and put it all back together. Usually on the newer vehicles they have squeakers, at least thats what a lot of guys call them, its the little anti chatter shims for the pads, if the pad kit comes with them then you have them, if not then don't worry about it. Other then that usually a little lube on the bolts that the calipers float on. Its a easy wrench job. I was hesitant getting into the brakes on my newer vehicles also, but after doing it once i don't have any worries about doing it again. Grab a wrench and a beer and dig in!

My first brake job


I am assuming you have front disc and rear shoes? The front pads are just about as simple as it gets. Two 3/8 allen bolts to take off, one simple piston to push back in and replace pads. (this is assuming you are not metal to metal and the rotors do not need to be turned. The rear should be shoes and just follow the same procedure in reverse after taking them off. BTW remember the larger brake shoe goes towards the back of the vehicle.
