How To Install Replace Front Disc Brake Pads & Rotors Toyota Sienna 98-03 1AAuto.com




What do you think about this video?

Gene G.: Mike, I just replaced a rotor & pads as you show on my Toyot Sien'98 front right wheel, & all was OK except: the top pin in the bracket was rusted & hard to pull out. The bottom pin was movable OK, & easy to pull out. So, I got rid of rust on the top pin by sand-paper, I clean an old grease from the bottom, and I coated both pins with a thick coat of "Anti-seize Thread Lubricant", but when I inserted both pins back, they became very hard, almost impossible to move in-and-out. So, I removed this coat, & coated thickly with "Ultra Disc Brake Caliper Lube," but the result the same: the pins are very difficult to move in-and-out. I finished changing only the right wheel, and did not touch the left yet, because I wanted to consult with you. Is it normal or not? What should I do? Thanks. 

castercamber: Excellent and informative. Just got the rotors and pads for my Sienna. Should be a snap thanks to your video.

CT L: Thanks for the video. Not sure if it was mentioned but I always open the brake fluid reserve cap first.

Tn Flash: Good informative video without any unnecessary fluff. If you make another could you also show how the springs, clips, etc of the brake hardware fit in place. A couple of my car's clips were broken so I bought a brake hardware kit to replace the parts. The hardware kit does not include instructions on placement of the parts. The kit has 4 flat shims and I have no idea where they go. Can you help?

rylichief: can u apply this same method to a 06 corolla

Jim Farrell: ** when compressing the brake piston, keep a eye out on your brake fluid, may spill over if overfilled **

dean2287: Thanks bro, very helpful!

dontlookatmeokay: Do you have to bleed the brake line when pushing the caliper piston inward so as to bleed any air from the system. Do you have to lift up the hood and open the brake fluid resivoir at all? I am not sure how to do this and will try it for the first time this week. Please advise. Thanks.

mamothcar1: Do you have a video on how to replace the spark plugs on the 2004 Sienna? They say its about a 4 hour job and cost over $600> its nothing easy like the 98 corolla

Dave S: love the pry bar to set the caliper back. no big c clamp required

mjdarcy97: Great video, I've got a 2010 Sienna and the brake calipers look exactly the same. I was thrilled you gave the torque specs.

24SuperJ: You do not use grease on the sliders.You should use a silicone lubricant or copper anti cease.Grease will dry out and gum up everything.Not to mention swell those small rubber rings on the slider pins.Also need to clean all sliders including the pad sliders before applying the silicone or copper anti cease.I enjoy your videos just the same.Thanks

Mehr Jarah: Thanks it was very helpful

1A Auto Parts: @mamothcar1 If it's not the same, it may be very similar.

XOsuperior: Thanks alot! I assume the concept is more or less the same on most Toyotas? Avensis 2000 in my case

vayacuadro: @1aauto Thanks man. Will check the calipers and let you know any feedback. Thanks again, at least I am saving some money. All the best.

1A Auto Parts: If it's at the proper level, before you begin this task, you should be okay.

1A Auto Parts: @vayacuadro This video will pretty much show you how to unbolt them from everything. Then you would need to remove the flex hose to free the brake caliper on your 2001 Toyota Sienna. You should try bleeding them first though to see if that frees them up.

Michael Kline: Thank you for the help. Used this video and everything went smooth.

MrPorschecarko1: Thank you! Now to my garage and do exactly what I've just learned! :)

vayacuadro: Hi there, one question, how do I replace the calipers in a Toyota Sienna 2001? I have a vibration every time I push the brakes and look like the caliper is not retracting. It is time to change them, but don't know how. Could you please post a video on how to do it? Thanks in advance.

1A Auto Parts: Thank you for checking us out. Have a great day. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

mamothcar1: awesome video - is the 2004 Sienna the same?

1A Auto Parts: You may need to also use a C-Clamp to compress the caliper piston all the way in. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

Jaime Jimenez: Thanks for the upload.

1A Auto Parts: @WWAAZZUUPP2011 We'll keep this in mind when we have another one of these vehicles to repair again.

Tim Dorrough: If you lay the old pad over the caliper piston you can compress it with the c clamp and it will be perfectly flat with the housing its in. Just so you can insure even pressure on the piston

WWAAZZUUPP2011: When are you going to post a video of the rear brakes?

John Samuel: Super video. Thanks very much of explaining and showing the process with clear instructions and video. I'll be sure to check back. Great job. Thank you.

1A Auto Parts: This video will show you exactly what needs to be done to change your brakes. You shouldn't have to bleed them.

Riley Bell: Awesome video, thanks!
