I am not sure if a Highlander and Hilux as we know them in South Africa are the same. I have a 2002 4 wheel drive Hilux with manual twist hubs. The front discs are pretty worn and need replacement.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

I think this is what you wan tbu tnot sure, the highlander for that year doesn't have manual locks. I'm sending a pic of a ford lock that is may be similar to what you have. They have bolts that if you loosedn them all then it should come out (lock) then you can get to wheel bearings to remove rotor. At least I thin it is if not get back with us.
