  1. Your using a phone to post, brake become break meaning broken. I make the same mistake using my phone. But front brakes never work with engine off, you need to use hand brakes at lights. Sounds like battery is going or alternator. Check the voltages, and dtc errors.
  2. Update day 3 of working on car I did a 2 day crash course on drum brakes and managed to get the 2 springs back on, maybe a little crude and unorthodox my way but the brake is working. Though I still have the old bearings they seem to have gone quiet. Even painted the drum silver with some car paint. So the car is ready for the wives driving test.
  3. I was using a dead blow hammer, OK I have ordered a lump hammer 4 lb. Though I will do the work after the wives driving test, Haynes recommends a punch and hammar but your way is better. If that no work, than I will try a hub pulley which I think works by trying to twist the hub out.
  4. I think they are 52nm as they come out with very little effort. But taking the hub out is the problem.
  5. The hub had a lot of rust at the back, I had to remove the rust from the hub nuts using a larger socket and then turning it before the correct size was fitted. I think I must be doing something wrong. Maybe you will have an idea about what I am doing wrong:
  6. I got the drum off, though I had the handbrake on a couple of hold on springs fell out, not really sure how to put them on, spring very tight? So I then took of the hub nuts, no problem. But the hub is really stuck tried to hammer the nuts but not enough space behind the wheel. Then I put the wheel on, and hammered it with a dead blow hammer till very tired. So no luck, I do not know what to do next is there a tool I can use. Wife has her driving test next week, she is not happy.
  7. Here we go A few extra pages Good Luck
  8. I think the mounting bolts is 88, not sure about the pin guide bolts I think loctite is a no, I would use anti seize. But I am a novice, never really done any brake work.
  9. I found all the torque values and some stuff on front hub bearings: #
  10. Engine may vibrate more if revs are increasing due to AC. But are you getting cold air? To analyse the problem you need to check the low and high pressure, I just check the low pressure:
  11. I wish I read your post before, spending more time on the avensis forum as I had to change a mirror unit. I just hope it is OK...🤕
  12. I guess there is nothing to lose as I want to try something more interesting than servicing. My confidence is increasing I just changed the yaris rear wiper, though I needed an impact wrench and a wiper pulley to do it. I was aware that a small percentage of their bearings car spares direct where bad but most people seemed happy with their bearings. So the hug nuts are low torque and come out from the back. The bearing they gave does not seem to have been returned, looks excellent and sparkly. Haynes book has no info on bearings but a lot on breaks:
  13. I wish I read this before I bought my bearing, but these after market bearings have good reviews https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TOYOTA-YARIS-Mk1-1-0-1-3-1-5-REAR-WHEEL-BEARING-HUB-ABS-SENSOR-1999-2005-NEW/171248077419?_trkparms=aid%3D1110001%26algo%3DSPLICE.SIM%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131231084308%26meid%3D8403a83dd89a4a88929f3baeb92e5a37%26pid%3D100010%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D12%26mehot%3Dpp%26sd%3D333083509506%26itm%3D171248077419&_trksid=p2047675.c100010.m2109 Not sure whether to change the bearing as I only have a mot advisory and it is not noisy even though I have ordered the part. Just curious about the best chisel to use to remove the bearing after hub nuts are taken off and torque settings for the hubs as this can affect the life of the bearings, is it 160nm?
  14. They should just clip in place. Check carefully the inside of the covers maybe something has broke but may still fit on. As the cover has to properly go round the indicator so check the plastic connector is not broken there.
