Toyota RAV4>> Maintenance>> Check of a condition of brakes (each 24 000 km or 12 months)>> Disk brakes
As practice shows, front brake shoes from the passenger wear out most intensively therefore and it is necessary to check brake shoes on the right forward wheel.
Weaken bolts of fastening of the right forward wheel and turn on the parking brake, then lift a forward part of the car and fix on supports. Remove the right forward wheel.

Fig. 2.19. An opening on a support of disk brakes for control of brake shoes


On disk brakes in each support about 2 brake shoes are established. Internal brake shoes are visible through viewing openings in each support (fig. 2.19) . External brake shoes are visible sideways a support. Visually determine thickness of brake shoes.
If it is visually difficult to determine thickness of brake shoes or there is a suspicion on an unsatisfactory condition of blocks, remove them for further survey. If the overlay of a brake shoe is worn-out to the minimum thickness, replace all four brake shoes in a set.
Measure by a caliper thickness of a brake disk. If thickness of a disk is less maximum permissible, replace it. Also check a condition of a brake disk for lack of cracks and zadir.
Before installation of a wheel check a condition of brake hoses and tubes.
Establish a wheel and lower the car.
