Brake Overhaul Guide

Recommended Posts

This is the guide to strip overhaul and rebuild the brakes on a corolla t sport. This will pretty much apply to any corolla. This includes the upgrade to Braided Brake hoses.

1. Locate the brake master cylinder. Take the cap off and put a plastic sandwich bag under the cap and then refit the cap. This will reduce the spillage of fluid if you are taking the calipers off or if you are fitting braided lines. If you are just fitting braided lines you can skip a few steps

4. Undo the brake union on the caliper to be removed, its a good idea to put a tray underneath to catch fluid. Bin the gasket and buy new ones.

6. Remove the caliper, remove the dust shield and the rubber cap on the caliper. Also remove the carrier bolts, these are 17mm and TIGHT!

8. Using a suitable diameter rod, push the brake piston out, I used a 1/4" extension from my ratchet set.
