Hi, I have a 2001 Toyota Avalon XLS that keeps wearing out the right front brake pads. The caliper that has a torn boot on the piston so I'm guessing it's staying extended and wearing out the pads (I've replace them twice in a couple months). The brake lines run from the master cylinder to a hydraulic "junction block" larger than the typical multi function valve on old cars. So I assume it has an ABS or Traction Control. There is no lit trouble light so I'm assuming the ABS is operating OK.
Question - If I replace the caliper, do I bleed the brakes the same way I've always done on old cars (furthest to closest) or do I need some special tool or code generator to assist in purging the system of air.
Thanks in advance for the help.
have the same problem?
