Rx300 Front Brake Pads


Recommended Posts

Has anyone changed out the front brake pads by yourself before? The friction area on each pad has a deeper slot on one end. I'm not sure if the deeper-slot side should face toward the front or the back of the vehicle. It is Toyota brand brake pad for '99 rx300.

The friction area of each Toyota front pad is divided into two parts with a deep groove in the middle. One part is smaller than the other with a deeper sloped edge. I replaced both front and rear pads a few years ago, but could not remember if the smaller side should face the top or the bottom of the carrier. Anyway, I've installed the new pads by facing smaller side toward the top of the carrier. With new pads and the new rotors, I eliminated the vibration issue when braking.
