Remote release handle Parking brake control Parking brake rear cable and conduit clip (part of 2A635) Parking brake cable bracket Parking brake rear cable and conduit— (LH) Parking brake rear cable and conduit— (RH) Parking brake cable equalizer Front parking brake cable and conduit Front parking brake cable clip The parking brake system is actuated when the parking brake control (2780) is depressed. The parking brake control applies tension to the front parking brake cable and conduit (2853) and parking brake cable equalizer (2A602). The parking brake cable equalizer is coupled to the RH parking brake rear cable and conduit (2A635) and the LH parking brake rear cable and conduit. The respective rear brake assemblies are then applied. The rear wheel brake assembly contains a cable-actuated parking brake assembly. The parking brake releases the rear brakes using a remote release lever incorporated with the parking brake control. If the parking brake control is not fully released, the parking brake signal switch will illuminate the brake warning light. The parking brake signal switch is mounted on the parking brake control. The switch is held in place by a self-tapping screw and aligned with a locater pin. The drum brake parking brake system is self-adjusting, therefore cable tension does not need to be adjusted.

WARNING: Do not use any fluid other than clean brake fluid meeting manufacturer’s specification. Additionally, do not use brake fluid that has been previously drained. Following these instructions will help prevent system contamination, brake component damage and the risk of serious personal injury. WARNING: Carefully read cautionary information on product label. For EMERGENCY MEDICAL INFORMATION seek medical advice. In the USA or Canada on Ford/Motorcraft products call: 1-800-959-3673. For additional information, consult the product Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) if available. Failure to follow these instructions may result in serious personal injury. WARNING: Always install new brake shoes or pads at both ends of an axle to reduce the possibility of brakes pulling vehicle to one side. Failure to follow this instruction may result in uneven braking and serious personal injury. NOTICE: Do not spill brake fluid onto painted or plastic surfaces or damage to surface may occur. If brake fluid is spilled onto a painted or plastic surface, immediately wash the surface with water. 1. Check the brake fluid level in the brake master cylinder reservoir. If required, remove the fluid until the brake master cylinder reservoir is half full. 2. Remove the wheel and tire. For additional information, refer to Section 204-04. 3. NOTICE: Do not allow the brake caliper to hang by the flexible brake hose or damage to the hose may occur. Remove the 2 brake caliper guide pin caps and bolts and position the caliper and brake pad assembly aside. Support the caliper using mechanic’s wire. Remove and discard the guide pin bushings. Inspect the guide pin threads for damage, install new guide pin(s) as necessary. 4. Remove the brake pads from the caliper. 5. Inspect the brake pads for wear or contamination and install new pads as necessary. For additional information, refer to General Procedures in Section 206-00. 6. Using a C-clamp and a worn brake pad, press the piston into the caliper. 7. Inspect the brake disc and resurface or install a new brake disc as necessary. For additional information, refer to General Procedures in Section 206-00. Installation 1. Clean, dry and inspect the brake caliper anchor plate. Apply equal amounts of the supplied yellow lubricant to the 4 brake pad contact points on the anchor plate as shown. 2. NOTICE: Do not apply lubricant to guide pin threads or incorrect tightening of the guide pins may result. Install new brake hardware as follows: Apply equal amounts of the supplied white lubricant to the inside of the guide pin bushings. Install the guide pin bushings into the caliper bores. Install the guide pins into the bushings. 3. Install the brake pads to the caliper. 4. Position the caliper onto the anchor plate and install the 2 brake caliper guide pin bolts. To install, tighten to 38 Nm (28 lb-ft). Clean and dry guide pin threads as necessary. 5. Fill the master cylinder with clean, specified brake fluid. 6. Install the wheel and tire. For additional information, refer to Section 204-04. 7. Apply the brake several times to verify correct brake operation.

1. Remove master cylinder fluid reservoir cap. 2. Raise and support vehicle. 3. Remove tire and wheel assembly. CAUTION: DO NOT overtighten C-clamp. 4. Place appropriately sized C-clamp over brake caliper, placing screw-drive head against outboard shoe and hook against rear of caliper. Slowly tighten screw-drive retracting caliper pistons into bores and brake outboard brake shoe free from caliper fingers. See Fig. 22 . Remove C-clamp. 5. Once outboard shoe is free from caliper fingers, slide caliper inboard on guides providing clearance between the rotor and inboard brake shoe. 6. Slide an appropriate prying tool through center opening in top of caliper behind brake shoe between 2 caliper pistons. Use care not to come in contact with pistons or dust boots potentially damaging them. Pry against rear of inboard brake shoe braking it free from caliper pistons. 7. Remove the 2 brake caliper guide pin bolts. See Fig. 23 . 8. Remove disc brake caliper from brake adapter and hang out of way using wire or a bungee cord. Use care not to overextend brake hose when doing this. 9. Remove brake shoes from disc brake caliper adapter. See Fig. 27 . 10. Install master cylinder fluid reservoir cap. Installation (Front) 1. Place brake shoes in anti-rattle clips on adapter. See Fig. 27 . Make sure clips are properly installed. See Fig. 26 . 2. Install disc brake caliper over brake shoes on brake caliper adapter. See CALIPER . 3. Align guide pin bolt holes with guide pins and install caliper guide pin bolts. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS . 4. Install tire and wheel assembly. See TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS . 5. Lower vehicle. 6. Pump brake pedal several times to seat shoes to caliper and brake rotor. 7. Check and fill brake fluid level as necessary. See CHECKING & FILLING under BRAKE FLUID in SERVICE. 8. Road test vehicle making several stops to wear off any foreign material on brakes and to seat brake shoes.

Introduction Some 2010 Prius vehicles may experience rear brake squeak when backing up or moving forward during the ?rst few brake applications when the brakes are cold. An updated rear brake shim kit is available to reduce the likelihood of this condition occurring. Repair Procedure 1. Test drive the vehicle to con?rm the squeak is coming from the rear brakes. The condition occurs more frequently when backing up during light brake pedal application after cold soak. 2. Remove rear brake shims. Refer to the Technical Information System (TIS) 2010 Prius Repair Manual: Brake – Brake (Rear) Brake: Rear Brake: Removal 3. Clean the rear brake pad backing plates with a clean shop towel and apply a small amount of black disc brake grease to the backing plate of each rear brake pad. NOTE Make sure disc brake grease is not applied to the lining of the rear brake pads. 4. Install the No. 1 Anti-squeal shims. Install the No. 2 Anti-squeal shims. Figure 3. 5. Using the Variable Pin Wrench (SST 09960-10010), slowly rotate the caliper piston until the piston groove is positioned as shown in the illustration below. 6. Install new rear brake anti-squeal shims with brake pads into the rear caliper assemblies brackets. Refer to (TIS), 2010 Prius Repair Manual: Brake – Brake (Rear) Brake: Rear Brake: Installation NOTE • When installing the rear disc brake caliper assembly on the rear disc brake caliper mounting bracket, ensure the protrusion on the brake pad is centered in the caliper piston groove. • It is important to ensure the protrusion is not contacting the outer edges of the caliper piston groove. (both sides) 7. Road test the vehicle to con?rm the condition has been reduced.
