How do you know when the brakes need to be replaced on a 1999 Toyota Camry and how much should the job cost for both the front and back pads and rotors?

When the linings are about 1/32" or so. The cost of replacing a part is a very general question that unless specified exactly is hard to answer. First, is who is replacing the part? Is the Dealer, an independent repair shop, a junkyard, the guy next door or you doing the replacement. These will all yield different prices. Not to mention that within all of these will be different labor rates and different part price mark ups. Second, what is the quality of the part? Is it a name brand, generic (white box, economy), OEM or used part? All of these will be different. Price will even differ between name brands, sometimes significantly. Thirdly, What is the warranty of the part and who is offering the warranty (the shop the parts house or the manufacturer). Limited Lifetime will have restrictions. Lifetime warranty isn

your brake rotors are warped. You should repalce you brake pads and have the rotors resurfaced if possible, or replaced.

You should have your rotors checked and possibly turned or replaced as necessary You should have your rotors checked and possibly turned or replaced as necessary

Warpped rotor. rotors are warped have them checked and turned or replaced. they should be turned after every brake change

The most common cause of this problem is warped brake rotors. Get it replaced soon. Whenever you replace rotors, you should replace the pads. The old pads will have conformed to the shape of the rotors, so braking efficiency and life will be down if you use them with the new rotors.

There is no need to spend the money if it doesn't need done. Typically your rotors last longer than your brakes do anyway, so you should be fine for a while.

you have out of round brake rotors, they can be replaced or machined if they are thick enough, the front pads should be replaced or placed on sand paper on a flat suface to remove the glazing so they will seat properly to freshly machined surface

A common reason is that the front rotors have warped. Go check out WikiAnswers on the topic of "warped brake rotors". Rotors should wear out smoothly in normal driving. Use of the brakes that generate lots of heat (hard braking, riding the brakes) will result in warped rotors.

you might have to bring it to a brake lave to size up the rotors and brake drums.

Your rotors had the grooves before, from the old pads. You should have had them turned. Next time check rotors at time of fitting new pads. If you can see or feel grooves then they should be repaired.

The brakes should be inspected every oil change and replaced when necessary.

Usually Just Brakes will charge $99 sometimes more if rotors or calipers are damaged = Front Brakes & Rotors = I just had mine replaced (14" Rotors), cost me $74.23 for the parts. 2 New Rotors, and 4 pads. Now changing them is a different story. My 1996 pads are mounted on tracks, that slide left and right. Held by 2 pins each. Really scary, especially if they are half-frozen.

take brakes off and calipers off, next rotors should come off easily.

User Avatar

No, this sound excessive to me and would be in my area. OEM type rotors are around $100 for the set of 2. Pads are around $50. Labor should be around $130. So a price of $250-$300 would not be excessive.

If you're changing the brake pads and there is too little rotor thikness to turn it, it should be replaced. If the rotor is warped and is too thin to be able to turn to remove the warping, replace it. If the brakes "pulsate" when you use moderate brake pressure, the rotor is warped.

If your brakes feel like they are pulling you should get them checked out. These brakes may need to be replaced.

If you did not go to a Toyota dealer then the brake material may not be correct for ... Q: Since my front brake pads were replaced I'm now getting a pulsation in my brake ... You should have your brakes checked as a precaution

All brakes turn kinetic energy into heat, but you should not touch disk brakes because the oil in your hands will degrade their performance

User Avatar

lateral runout. your rotors or drums are warped and need to be machined or replaced depending on the thickness. if your slamming the brakes this is normal its your antilock braking system functioning as it should to keep you from sliding.

What should it cost to replace rear brakes, drums and rotors, '96 Volvo 850 GLT.

User Avatar

probably, if the pads are worn, or the rotors \ drums are scarred, there will be a grinding noise, plus you should be able to feel it through the brake pedal. most modern brake systems have quealers on the pads to tell you when they are getting worn and should be replaced. If you have a disc brake system, you should be able to inspect the rotors quite easily. Look for gouges in the surface of the rotor. If they are badly gouged, they should be turned or replaced.

It depends on the vehicle. We need more info.
