Answers :

The only thing i can see you would have a problem with is the pitmen arm, for that you will need a special tool for that, it can be rented at autozone or someplace like that. Be aware they can be a bear to get off. you might be further ahead to have a shop do that for you, and you can do the lines.
\015\012The break hoses are fairly easy if they come loose from the hard line, the thing to do is to get some good penatrating oil lik PB blaster and spray the fittings where the rubber end meats the hard end and let it set for a while so it can penatrate, you will also need line wrenches as to not round off the fittings. its up to you if you want to tackel this project or not. This at least give you an idea what your up agenst.

Brake rotors I'm trying to remove the rear rotor from my 2006 Toyota Sienna AWD. The old brake pad wore down and bit into the rotor, which I'm trying to change. I've released the emergency brake, and removed the caliper and caliper arm, but the rotor, although loose, won't wiggle off. What else do I need to do?


Are there small retainer clips on the studs still? More than likely its just rust built up on the center hub. Take some sand paper to the center hub, as long as e-brake is released and caliper is off, it will come off. I'm not familar with the toyota ... 2006 Toyota Sienna

Brakes I turned in my car to change my brake pads but, after 2 months it needed to be changed again. This time they said I also need a new brake disc. How is it within 2 months I needed to replace the pads and disc when it took me three years to wear down the original brakes? Now again I need to replace both pads and disc. It also makes a knocking sound when the brakes is not engaged. What causes this? Is it something the mechanic did that's not right.


It sounds like the rotor (brake disk) is warped. That would cause the pads to wear much more quickly because the disk "wobbles".\015\012The warped disk can also cause the noise, depending on how bad the warp is.\015\012When most shops ch ... 2004 Mazda 3
