Hi,

Replacing rear brake pads and rotors really isn't too hard. Plus, if you do it yourself, purchase lifetime parts so you never have to pay for them again.

You can expect rear brakes to last around 30,000 miles, but that changes based on terrain and driving habits.

To get started, here is a link that explains in general how it's done. Use this as a guide and video on same make the process is the same.

https://youtu.be/-zHGYhjOxXo

and

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-replace-rear-brake-pads-and-rotors

Here are the directions specific to your vehicle. The attached pics below correlate with these directions.

Wife took her car to independent repair shop to have car checked over. They tell her she needs to flush the brake system ($151.00 cost), flush the transmission ($173.00 cost), and flush the power steering system ($115.00 cost). The car also needs brake but I need to save money can you please show me how? Thanks! David

Trying to install new drums and shoes, but the shoes that come in the kit all look the same, one of them should have a built in or welded pin like the original, but none have it. Can you see the picture and see the pin and tell me if there is a way around it?

Hi,

The shoe itself looks different. However, the pic I believe you are referring to is reused. You need to tap it out of the old shoe and then reinstall it in the new one. But the new one doesn't seem to have a location for it. There is usually a U shaped clip that holds it in.

I copied your pic and circled what I believe you are referring to. Check to see if both of the new shoes are the same or if one has a location to reinstall that part. Pic 2 shows what I believe you are referring to as well.

________________________________________

I don't know if you need them, but here are the directions right from Alldata specific to your vehicle for brake shoe replacement. The remaining pictures will correlate with these directions. If you go all the way to pics 15 and 16, you'll see what I am referring to.

Note: These directions are complete and include things you will likely not need.

Hi,

It should come out or the new shoes should have come with a new one to install. I'm looking at the two shoes in your picture and there isn't a location to place that part in the new one. Are you certain you have the right shoes?

The right rear rotor and pads were replace on my kid's 2002 Camry. The brake appears to be a singe piston floating type. The problem is that the rotor gets very hot after a short drive. I don't think the issue is an incorrectly adjusted emergency brake, but who knows. I did jack up the right rear and I cannot spin the tire. What steps can I take to diagnose the problem? Thanks.

Check out our video on site and see if you did everything according to that. Then check to see if caliper slides and some pads come with anti squeal shims some do not that may be the problem as well. See pic

What is the trick to removing the rear rotor? There is no screws in either of the little holes where one would expect the retaining screw to be?
