Replacing front disc splash guard

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi

 Nearside front disc back plate/splash guard is corroded half away so even though not an advisory last test (surprised) I am inclined to replace it before this test if it is not a difficult job. I have looked in the Haynes Workshop Manual but that does not give any info. So what does replacing this cover entail?

Difficult to find a decent diagram but it will involve the removal of the front caliper, disk and possibly the removal of the front hub (which would be a real pia as you would have to undo the driveshaft retaining nut..)

 

Off hand I can't find a layout diagram.

My mark 1 Yaris shields have holes at the bottom and have had for several years. I have not bothered trying to replace them

Please ignore the above - incorrect.

Thanks Madas.. it looks as if the splash guard is between the disc and the hub so hopefully the large hole in the splash guard will go over the hub boss so just the disc and caliper off togthe. Does that sound right?
