DIY Front Brakes Corolla 98 - 02

This is a DIY for changing your front brakes in a corolla 98 - 02 .

First you just slightly crack your lug nuts and then you find a secure spot to jack up the corolla in my photo I used the front frame so that I can raise both sides at once . Then you place jack stands in a secure area lower the corolla on the jack stands then you can remove the rest of your front tires .

Once you have the tires off then you can use your rachet with a 14mm socket and start removing the bolts that hold down the brake caliper .

Then with a flat head screw drive you gently pry back the caliper .

Then you can spread your front brake pads apart . You can use a screw driver here to of needed .

Some don't but I personally put on some brake quiet on the back of the front pads . This is optional but I love my corolla so I use it . Then you let this set for a few seconds .

While your letting your pads set then you can just slightly crack open the top of your brake fluid cap then with the proper tool you push back the piston in the caliper . Once that is done then you put back your cap .

Then you put back your pads and brake caliper the same way you removed them and your done .

Then when you are done you tighten up the lug nuts and lower your corolla , Make sure your brake fluid cap is back on , Before you start the car pump your brakes until the brake pedal comes up . Some cars do not need top be blead but if you opened the line or your fluid is nasty it is recommended that you bleed your brakes . And with not alot of time there you have your front brakes changed .
