Question:

How do I change front brake pads on a 03 4Runner?

Howdy, I have never done this before, but for what the dealership quoted me, I think I will try to do it myself! I have an 03‘ 4Runner that Im trying to change the front brakes on. The only thing thing that scares me is the ABS system. I‘m worried I may damage it some how.

Answer:

25% is a meaningless figure , all car makers specify a minimum thickness of pad allowable before change, NEVER resurface rotors on a car with ABS a mechanic in a workshop cannot get the tolerances right and even traffic going past will cause enough ground vibration to make the grinding machine shake, a machine shop near here recently had to dig out its workshop floor and insert giant hard rubber pads to mount its machines on after it had numerous complaints , it was found that a nearby trucking company's trucks (18 wheelers) were shaking the ground so much the grinders lost their accuracy, $220 would be a more than fair price for the job, you only flush brake fluid with more brake fluid and that should be done every 4 years or so, you can do it yourself with home kits that flush new fluid through the system using the pressure from the spare tire

it's a four wheel drive then you'll need to use a Allen wrench or metric wrench to get the discs off if it 's a stander ed you'll need big screw driver needle nose pliers and a reg.pair of pliers.
