  1. Scion xB brakes on Echo

    Yaris/Scion iA, Vitz and Echo Forum
    I'm planning on un-shitboxing my 2005 Echo I recently purchased. The front brakes are shot, and I figured if I need to buy pads and rotors, I may as well upgrade. I've been looking around, and found a post from 2013 discussing Echo/xB/xA parts compatibility. Unfortunately, this is my first post...
  2. Rotors and pads recommendation

    Avalon 4th Generation (2013-2018)
    Hello folks, can anyone recommend rotors and pads for a not so premium quality 2013 Avalon XLE Premium? Been looking at RockAuto since money is tight and their prices are good. Not looking at the cheapest ones. I'm not a racer so don't need anything performance. Was looking at the Akebono pads...

    I bought my 2014 XLE AWD V6 Venza for the first time since buying it new a couple of months ago and the dealer says in needs Rotors, Calipers, and Pads on both rear tires due to corrosion. They want $1,500 to do it. I called a trustworth independent garage and they want $650 using Centric parts...
  7. 2012 Rav4 Manual Mode Door Troubleshooting? Question on brakes

    RAV4 3rd Generation (2006-2012)
    Going to be working on a 2012 Toyota RAV4. The owner told me the switch was stuck so he turned it real hard and it came loose. Since then all he has is defrost for his mode. I tried to look for a search button on my mobile device but I could not find one. What I'm trying to figure out is what...

  9. 2000 XLS - Brake Service Questions

    Avalon 2nd Generation (2000-2004)
    Hello everyone. Long time lurker, new poster in the Avalon forum. I have an intermittent squeal from my brakes. By that I mean it sounds like once per revolution of the wheel (I think) there's a squeak, of sorts. I took it to a shop (and the dealer) about a year ago and they both said it was...
  10. Toyota Solara Rear brake grinding while driving.

    Camry 3rd and 4th Gen '92-'01, Solara '99-'03
    I have a 2000 Toyota solara SLE. It has disc brakes all around. When im driving down the road it sounds like a metal on metal grinding noise, almost as if the brake pads are slightly making contact with the rotor (the sound is coming from the left rear wheel). Also when im turning left or right...
  11. New rotors old pads?

    Highlander 1st Generation (2001-2007)
    My rear rotors are warped. They have already been cut once. Problem is I just put new pads on about 12k miles ago. The pads are in good shape. Is it ok to use the pads with new rotors?
  12. Rust on rotor face??

    Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    Hey guys, just singed up, need your input and opinions. I just got my 2010 Corolla XRS serviced at the dealer. They said my front brake pads were still in great shape, but had to change the rotors (125 000 KM - roughly 77K miles). Its been a week. It has rained. Usually, I understand there is...

Or should I return and order something online which saves me some money? I live in Ontario Canada so...
  14. Break Job for 2007 Toyota Corolla

    Corolla 9th Gen/1st Gen Matrix (2003-2008)
    Hey, I'm going to need four new brakes and rotors. The local dealership is quoting $495 for just the front brakes and rotors, so call it $1000 for all four. Places like Midas come in much cheaper but I'm not sure if I trust them with my car. I figure with the dealership I'm getting...

    Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    I loved my local Toyota dealer but it was little expensive so I switched to use Precision Tune Autocare shops. Last time I took my car to vehicle maintanance, I changed oil (use synthetic), filters, rotated tires and per their recommendation changed brake pads (2x with purchase of pads). But...
  17. couple of questions: i'm going to diy trying...(sticking brakes)

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    98 corolla. I've decided to diy some front brake sticking issues for the first time ever in life. After a few minutes of driving, the driver side front brake caliper seems like it's pushing the pads against the rotor on it's own. The way I know this that I can feel some major heat coming out of...
  18. Rotors

    Corolla 8th Generation (1998-2002)
    The steering wheel in my car shakes when I hit the breaks going high speeds. It specifically only shakes when I hit the breaks, otherwise it's perfectly smooth. The mechanic is quoting me at $170 for labor ($40) and parts ($65 each, Toyota parts). The labor is $40, and he says I can bring my...

    I have an 07 v6 SE with 220k on the clock. Recently switched out my rear pads with no problem, but still had a small shake under braking - so tonight we pulled the front wheels off and switched the front pads and rotors out - did an oil change while it was there. On it's first test drive -...
  20. New Rotors? or Machined?

    Corolla 10th Gen/2nd Gen Matrix (2009-2013)
    I have an 09 corolla S with 119000 miles. My car shakes when i brake on the freeway and I just got new tires so Im sure it must be the rotors. Is it better to just get new rotors or have a shop machine the old ones down. Which way is more cost effective?? and how hard would it be to install...
