    This is a DIY for a Toyota Tercel front brakes replacement .

    Once you remove the front tires you remove the two bolts on the back side .

    Once you remove the bolts with a flat head screw driver you remove the front brake pads

    Then either with a big C clamp or a brake caliper tool you push back on the caliper till it's flush looking for leaks around the rubber seal . Remember to unscrew your brake master cylinder cap . DO NOT REMOVE the cap cause the air will contaminate the brake fluid . The reason you just pop the cap is when your pushing the caliper back you are pushing the fluid back up and relieving the pressure . If you leave the cap pressure will build up . When you are done with both sides then you put the cap on tightly .

    Then you apply antisieze on your bolts and always remember there are two size bolts the longer one goes on top , then apply anti squeal on the back on the pads then place your pads on then the caliper and tighten bolts . Before starting your car pump up your brakes till they come up , If you need to bleed the brakes then do so .
    This is a very easy DIY .

    So I'm guessing you have a tercel now too? Or just a friends car that needed work.
