03 corolla verso rear brake pad query

Recommended Posts

Hi all

 

im just changing rear brake pads - i had a quick look to see its the same as a normal Corolla, but the verso seems to have 2 pins that hold the pads to the carrier... Ive not seen this before normally its 2 bolts for the carrier and you can move it away from the disk?! Wish i had taken a picture of it now.... Any suggestions? Im unsure how to take the pads off.

 

t hanks in advance.

Surely knocking the pins out, using a drift, should suffice?  Wouldn't have thought you need to have to split the caliper in this day an age, unless there's some other problem.

Scrutinising your photos, I'm wondering if I can see a small hole in each of the pins, close to the pad nearest the head of each pin, where there might have been a split pin type pin.  Did you remove these or were they missing?

Your brake assembly is totally different to my Corolla, so I'm a little blind as regards detail of your vehicle :(

Thanks for the comments, splitting the caliper is a no no! There is a bolt that appears to be seized.. I never thought about knocking the pins out.. I gave them a quick tug with some pliers but that wasn't working. Will give it another try.

 

The car car is a 03 Corolla verso, I had a 03 Corolla before this and the brakes were so much easier to change 😳

Good spot! There were 2 pin type springs on either pad that I removed in the hope that would magically release the pins lol needless to say that didn't work!
