09 Corolla Wheel Nut torque!!

Where would I be able to find the Wheel nut torque for 09 Corolla and the caliper nut torque? Planning on changing the brakes but don't know the specs or just tighten until I feel its tight?? Thanks

Wheel lug nut torque is 76 ft/lb. I'm not sure about the caliper bolts. A quick call to a dealer would be able to get you that number.

yup...76 ft. lbs. is pretty standard for all Toyotas. Hand tight should be fine (12 ft. lb. or something) for the brake caliper bolts, as that's what I've seen when I used to work at the dealer.

You really shouldn't recommend something if you don't know the answer FOR SURE! You could cause somebody to get hurt - or in the case of brakes much worse!. Jeff had the correct answer and what you recommended for the caliper bolts was only HALF the recommended torque, very dangerous.

I found the right info on GOOGLE on only the third site I checked. You guys really ought to try searching outside of this forum once in a while.

Adjusting the parking brake:
Toyota specs are: after setting the parking brake, release it. Than, apply it again. It should "click" 6-9 times at 200N (20kgf, 45.0lb-ft)

Here is the text of how to adjust it:
-Remove upper console box assembly
-Completely release parking brake lever
-Loosen lock nut and the adjusting nut to completely release parking brake cable
-Fully depress brake lever 3-5 times with the engine stopped
-Turn adjusting nut until the parking brake lever travel is corrected to within specified range
-Using a wrench, hold adjusting nut and tighten the lock nut: 6.0 N*m (61 kgf*cm, 53 in*lbs)
-Operate parking brake lever 3-4 times, and check lever travel
-Check whether parking brake drags or not
-Install upper console box assembly

Is this for the Rear Drum brakes or disc or you have to take the Rear Drum Brakes off to adjust it?

I believe the above instructions are for adjusting the travel distance of the handbrake cable so that when you pull on the handbrake handle, sufficient tension on the cable (hence applying pressure on the rear brakes) is achieved within 6-9 clicks. If the cable is too loose, you will pull on the handle and it will travel all the way to the end without applying sufficient tension on the cable. On the other hand, if the cable is too tight, you risk applying a pre-tension to the cable which can cause the rear brakes to wear prematurely.

The above instructions say to remove the upper console (behind the handbrake) to expose the handbrake adjustment nuts. You will see the adjustment nuts once you remove the console: there is one adjusting nut and a lock nut to adjust the travel distance of the handbrake cable.

You don't need to remove the rear wheels nor the rear drums at anytime.

Have you ever adjusted your bicycle brakes by adjusting the nut around the brake cable that goes to the brake handle? that is the same idea here

If adjusting the handbrake cable does not succeed, you can check if the clearance between the shoes and the drums is correct by turning the star wheel cog in the rear brakes. Normally you don't need to adjust the star cog wheel unless you service the brakes.
