just wondering approx how much you would expect to repair/replace an emergency break on a 5th gen celica.

since i don't know enough about cars, i have to get a mechanic to do it who is charging 267$ parts and labour.

Man, tell him to show u whats wrong. 5th gens are notorious for the front cable breaking. $20 and 10 minutes to fix, might need a buddy to do it with you, but man, $267 is a bit much !

was the rear left he said was fucked.
but seeing as i need him to do the saftey certification, i just went ahead with it.

anyway, after much bullshit with the MTO, the car is plated and legally mine, lol

the reason you paid so much is the emergency brakes cost around 90-100 for 4 shoes. they each come in their own little box with toyota all over it. what a rip. and oem only...

then again a local rebuilder charges ~20-30.

I get all my brake parts from NAPA, only thing I buy OEM is rotors cause they last forever, the currents are at 50,000 K of total abuse and still are good. I suggest you shop around for parts, toyota isnt your only source.
