zofa300: What kind of grease you should use on the caliper bins, sliding brake surface and back of shims? thanks
Abs: Hey guys. Do you have to turn the small wheel behind the rotor after putting the new rotor on? I've done the rotors on my camry and the the ebrake pedal engages but feels a lot lighter on the foot now.
Stanley Coleman: Thanks alot for this video, it was a big help.
Bardia Ghajari: anti sieze on guide pins? not silicone???
Magnageek: Hey, Joe, you really saved me one heck of a lot of time and aggravation, especially by telling what size bolts to get to pull the rotors prior to starting the job. Excellent video! You are a gifted teacher, and I am in your debt.
Alan Chan: Where did you get 34 ft lbs of torque from??
REVENANTxRED: @Joe Williams I have an issue! I am mechanically inclined worked on cars since I was very young, here is where I have an issue, Haynes, Chilton manuals give the same info you did as far as the release of the adjustment screw, as well as all data, yet after engaging and disengaging the parking brakes, I still don't see the adjustment screw, I'm afraid of what I might have to do to get the rotor off. Any ideas?
immafreak: Thanks for this video. I was able to do this by myself and saved a lot of money. Just a tip for beginners like me, make sure you release the parking brake so that you can remove the rotors. I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out why and I was like "doh!"
tracmag: Very good video
tracmag: he did not show the removal of the old rotor
Nathaniel Sisler: is the 2008 lexus es350 the same???
jstar1000: Why clamp the hose and bleed out the fluid when pushing back the caliper piston? I have always just opened up the master cylinder brake fluid compartment and pushed it back up into it and there is no need to bleed the brakes when done or add any fluid. Seems like a lot more work for nothing if you ask me.
harrigl1: Awesome video! Very clear and easy to follow instructions. You guys can easily teach others how to make "How to" videos. Excellent pace with calm, confident vocal instruction. Kudos!
TheRealKerfaffle: Hi Joe - I used this video as my main source to get comfortable to change my rear brakes. And, I had success. Thank you!
westernfb: How much different do you think the job would be on a Highlander of the same vintage?
jontrip247: Anti-seize compound is not recommended (08:41) instead use clear silicone paste
bernardo121968: Flushing the brake fluid is a good idea when changing the pads. This keeps the brake fluid fresh, and prevents the rubber brake hoses from deteriorating prematurely. Using normal brake grease on clips/pins and anti-squeal paste on back of pads is also fine. You don't have to use anti-seize in these areas, but it's ok also.
bernardo121968: The reason for bleeding is to get rid of air in the brake lines, so your brake pedal doesn't feel spongy when you step on the brakes. As a result, you do replace a few spoonfuls of fluid by doing this, but that is not the main reason for bleeding your brakes.
