Re: Changing Brake Pads

I was changing the head, timing chain and pistons for a toyota 22r-e. That was on the crankshaft bolt.

Let me just say i have never seen anything like this before, there was ONE brake pad on the front driver side, ONE. The outer pad had some life left but when i went to remove the inner pad i realized there was no pad. The pistons had been pressing flush against the rotors. There is no way the pad could have fallen off and i can only assume the PO when he had the brakes done only put one pad in. I had a fun time trying to compress the pistons back in so i can imagine the PO didnt want to deal with it and decided it was alright to put one pad in. Here's some pictures of the carnage. Luckily the pistons still work and havent cracked, they're just slightly melted

what is a PB blaster?

lol, thats why Im asking, I want to know how to get those things off easy. When I changed my shocks I had to take it to midas to get them loosening because they were so stuck on it broke my wrench. They used a torch on them for a good 30 mins before they came loose. I had tried a torch at home but did do it. They were using long pipes and huge torches.

So this pb blaster really works on these kind of bolts? How do you use it

Re: Changing Brake Pads

lol for not knowing what PB blaster is. Its a spray, like liquid wrench or WD-40 just better. If i ever have any bolts that need to be removed, i spray them down with pb blaster. Most of the time i like to let it sit over night but 15-30 min works good enough. If you're ever messing with exhaust bolts, or suspension bolts always spray them down with PB blaster, you will be much happier

Re: Changing Brake Pads

which pb blaster do you use? It seems like the stuff is just a strong acid.
