2015 TRD Pro- Brake Pad Replacement Question

I need to replace the rear brake pads on my 2015 4Runner TRD.

The rotors look fine, no vibration , etc.

Is it necessary to have the rotors turned, or can I simply replace the brake pads?

I had no issues just replacing the pads on my prior Toyota Sequoia.

Thanks

Just replace the pads. No need to machine the rotors if they are smooth and not warped. I never replace/machine rotors unless there is a good reason.

Agree.

Always amazed by people who say you must change rotors every time you change pads.

Thanks for the replies !! This has been my approach in the past .

I've done brakes on several cars over the years. Besides new pads, do I need to purchase any other hardware , or just replace / re-use the shims and pins, etc?

Thanks !

Toyota has two different pads. Make sure you get the OEM's. The Ones they use on their brake jobs are a different Toyota number and have seen several posts on here that they squeal and don't last. Here is the part number I use, I have a 2012 TE. I am on my 3rd set with 210,000 miles. I replaced my rotors as a precaution after my first set of pads went 100k. 04466-60140 look at post 6 here Squeaking when breaking.

You can clean up and reuse if they aren't bad. Sometimes pads already come with a new hardware kit. No idea if the Toyota ones do.

Toyota dealer in Ft. Collins did this to me after I insisted on OEM Toyota and sold me these POS pads. I'm squeaking like a MUNI bus and can't wait until the fronts wear down enough to replace all 4.

I went with these. Search via Amazon:

Toyota Genuine Parts 446660140 Rear Brake Pad Set

As noted in the comments, the parts did come in Toyota/Lexus branded box. No issues/squeaks etc.

I'll jump on the brake pad boat, since I literally just replaced them a couple fo weeks ago

I used OEM pads and shims, and caliper grease (OE, SuperLube, CRC, whatever you want as long as it is brake grease) Model year doesn't matter as long as it is a 5th gen.

Fronts:
Pads: 04465-60320
Shims: 04945-60090

Rear:
Pads: 04466-60140
Shims: 04946-60141

OE Caliper grease: 08887-80609


As others had mentioned if your rotors still look good, smooth, not warped and are within wear spec:
Front:
Standard thickness :
32.0 mm (1.26 in.)
Minimum thickness :
29.0 mm (1.14 in.)
Rear:
Standard thickness :
18.0 mm (0.709 in.)
Minimum thickness :
16.0 mm (0.630 in.)

Then leave them

Did you need any additional clips for the rears?
I see some in tech drawings but I havenít needed to replace my brakes yet so I could not confirm.

Hereís a link to what I mean.

2010 Toyota 4Runner Trail Disc Brake Anti-Rattle Clip Set (Front, Rear) - 0494722050 | Sparks Toyota, Myrtle Beach SC

I got replacement pins and springs for the fronts but still had this question on the rears.

This is the first pad change I have done on the truck since it was new, so everything was OE. The set of OE rear pads had two in the box, the old pads had only two, IIRC the were on the dif side pad and bottom (obviously double check when you pull them)

Thanks.
Those should be the pad wear indicators.
I did find my answer in this DIY article where he calls them “brake pad abutment clips”.
Toyota 4Runner Rear Disc Brake Pads Replacement Guide - 2010 To 2016 Model Years - Picture Illustrated Automotive Maintenance DIY Instructions
I’m going to order a set of the parts I linked to above just in case I need them.

Yep, you’re absolutely correct. I just cleaned those with a stiff bristle brush and brake cleaner, didn’t even remove them, apart from brake dust they looked nearly new. Definitely nothing wrong with replacing them while it apart, pretty minimal cost. Lol I would have had I known

You can identify the Toyota brake pads by color.

The low end ones are all black.

The factory OEM brakes are blue. The back of the front pads are blue and the rear pads have a blue stripe.

The TRD pads are red around the edges.
