How to Change Front Disc Brakes & Rotors on a 07 Camry


Toyota launched the first Camry in the 1983 model year, as the makers attempted to cash in on American’s desire for front-driven, four-cylinder vehicles. Toyota hit the mark, as the Camry became an instant success. The 2007 Camry was the first year model of an all-new design. This Camry had a more aggressive body style, as well as a sleek new headlight and taillight design.

The 2007 Camry came fitted with a 2.4-liter, in-line four-cylinder engine that created 158 horsepower, and had an optional 3.5-liter, 268-horsepower V-6 engine available. The 2007 Camry also came standard with front disc brakes. Toyota recommends replacing the front brake pads when the lining reaches 0.039 inches or less, and the front rotors when they measure thinner than 0.983 inches.
