How to Replace the Brake Pads on a Toyota Avalon

The Toyota Avalon is equipped with all-wheel ABS disc brakes. The braking system is comprised of brake pads, rotors and calipers with caliper pistons. Toyota recommends regular inspection and maintenance of your Avalon’s brakes, including replacement of the brake pads at least every 50,000 miles. You can take your Toyota to a brake service station to have the brake pads replaced, or you can swap the worn pads for new ones yourself and save the cost of labor.

Park the Avalon on a flat surface, away from passing traffic, allowing you ample space to work on both sides of the vehicle. Turn off the engine.
