Problems removing brake caliper.

Recommended Posts

Hi.

I have a 2004 t-sport. Rear brake discs need replacing. Have managed to remove ns disc and caliper so all fine there. Problem then started when got to the drivers side. Managed to remove bottom caliper bolt, but have then managed to round off the other one as well as the 2 slider bolts.

Does anybody have any tips as to get them off and what the replacement part numbers are and where to get them during this lockdown.

Cheers

Trev.

Use 6 point sockets on these bolts as you want to get them first time. 

You might have to heat them to get them to turn. Don't waste your time with release Oil

To release the rounded caliper bolt think it was one of these  kits we used, but do check the sizes !  replacement bolts were purchased cheaply from the  local Toyota dealer as they are a high tensile type, but do not know their parameters.

Not sure how to remove the rounded slider bolt screws  as getting purchase on the bolt is the problem,  possibly grinding the head off is one way  ?

Don't have a oxy torch etc but do find a good penetrating fluid works for us.

If you cannot get anything from Toyota, this place hs a good selection of replacement parts, we use them  https://www.brakesint.co.uk/shop.html

Got the 2 caliper bolts out with a Irwin bolt removal socket. Nothing would get the bottom front carrier bolt to shift, ended up cutting the head off and withdrawing the carrier with the disk.

Took it down to the workshop and welded a new nut on the end and got it off with a big bar on the socket and the heat of the welding.

No just need to buy some new ones. They appear to be m10 fine 25mm long with 14mm head😄.

The caliper bolts seem to be readily available from a few places, so off (online) shopping I go

Had a look on ebay and they appear to be £16 for 2 bolts or £18.50 for the sliders as well.

from a guy who is used to buying bits for an old land rover this seem s a bit exessive. As will need 2 sets of these and still havent found any carrier bolts

The Caliper bolts are about £2 each , Toyota Ebay online show them for the 2007 on models, worth checking if they are actually sending parts out.

They only seem to list parts they have sent out, so you need  to email them  for a quote for your model. reg no and Vin etc

That Brakes International direct site seems to be stuck, but again their ebay store does list their kits, but as they say, your need to look on the calipers to see what make they are, normally Aisin or Lucas/TWR.

Expect the TS brakes are a bit different from the standard models ?
