Brake pad & rotor replacement help DIY

Recommended Posts

Hi.......I am thinking of doing a DIY brake pad & rotor replacement on both front & back on my ES 350/2016. Does anyone have the torque specs for doing this job & any advice or tutorials that might be useful in doing this job? Thanks

Careful,  just got both rear pads and rotors replaced for free due to premature wear on my es300h.  The issue based on the pins in the caliper releasing and clamping down the pad and it not releasing.  Wore down a pad that was at 7mm to 1 mm in less than 2 months. Dealer had 3 more es models this week with same issue that showed up causing them to call the lexus rep to get the replacement covered.   Only 35k on the vehicle so very premature. Got 150k on my prius and no issues ever.

Thanks for the heads up.
