1. Inspect the fluid level in the brake master cylinder auxiliary reservoir. 2. If the brake fluid level is midway between the maximum-full point and the minimum allowable level, no brake fluid needs to be removed from the reservoir before proceeding. 3. If the brake fluid level is higher than midway between the maximum-full point and the minimum allowable level, remove brake fluid to the midway point before proceeding. 4. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Vehicle Lifting. 5. Remove the tire and wheel assembly. 6. Install and firmly hand tighten 2 wheel nuts to opposite wheel studs in order to retain the rotor to the hub. 7. Install a large C-clamp over the body of the brake caliper with the C-clamp ends against the rear of the caliper body and against the outboard brake pad. 8. Tighten the C-clamp evenly until the caliper piston is compressed into the caliper bore enough to allow the caliper to slide past the brake rotor. 9. Remove the C-clamp from the caliper. 10. Remove the brake caliper lower guide pin bolt. 11. Notice: Support the brake caliper with heavy mechanic’s wire, or equivalent, whenever it is separated from its mount and the hydraulic flexible brake hose is still connected. Failure to support the caliper in this manner will cause the flexible brake hose to bear the weight of the caliper, which may cause damage to the brake hose and in turn may cause a brake fluid leak. 2006 Saturn Truck VUE 2WD L4-2.2L VIN D Without disconnecting the hydraulic brake flexible hose, pivot the caliper upward and secure the caliper with heavy mechanics wire, or equivalent. 12. Remove the brake pads from the caliper mounting bracket. 13. Remove the brake pad retainers from the caliper bracket. 14. Thoroughly clean the brake pad hardware mating surfaces of the caliper bracket, of any debris and corrosion. 15. Inspect the brake caliper guide pins for freedom of movement, and inspect the condition of the guide pin boots. Move the guide pins inboard and outboard within the bracket bores, without disengaging the slides from the boots, and observe for the following: ^ Restricted caliper guide pin movement ^ Looseness in the brake caliper mounting bracket ^ Seized or binding caliper guide pins ^ Split or torn boots 16. If any of the conditions listed are found, the brake caliper guide pins and/or boots require replacement. Installation Procedure

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.

Removal 1. CAUTION: Install a new lining if worn to or past the specified thickness above the metal backing plate or rivets. Install new pads in complete axle sets. If necessary, using a suitable suction device, remove the brake fluid in the master cylinder reservoir until it is half filled. 2. Remove the wheel and tire assembly. For additional information, refer to Section 204-04. 3. Inspect the brake pads for wear or contamination. 4. CAUTION: If the anchor housing spring is to be reused, do not force the anchor housing spring off the brake caliper. Do not install a damaged anchor housing spring. Remove the anchor housing spring. 5. NOTE: Verify if the anchor housing spring has 1 end with 2 tabs. If yes, the LH side anchor housing spring must be installed with the 2-tabbed end in the upper brake caliper cavity. For the LH brake caliper, release the lower portion of the anchor housing spring. Apply force at the center of the anchor housing spring and pull outward at the bottom of the anchor housing spring to remove it from the lower brake caliper cavity. 6. Rotate the spring upward then remove it from the brake caliper. 7. NOTE: On the RH side, the anchor housing spring must be installed with the 2-tabbed end in the lower brake caliper cavity. The illustration below shows the anchor housing spring end with 2 tabs. For RH brake caliper, release the upper portion of the anchor housing spring. Apply force at the center of the anchor housing spring and pull outward at the top of the anchor housing spring to remove it from the upper brake caliper cavity. 8. Rotate the spring downward then remove it from the brake caliper. 9. NOTE: Do not allow the brake caliper to hang from the brake hose. Remove the brake caliper. 1. Remove the zero-drag spring. 2. Remove and discard the brake caliper-to-anchor plate bolts, guide pins and boots. 10. Remove the brake pads from the brake caliper. 11. NOTE: Use a wood block or used brake pad to protect the brake caliper piston boots. Compress the brake caliper pistons. 12. Measure the brake disc thickness. Install a new brake disc if it is not within specification. For additional information, refer to Brake Disc in this section.

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.
