    When I compressed the piston on one side, it only took about 5-10 full rotations but on the other side, I literally had to make from 50- 100 rotations but I finally got it. Any ideas why one side took so many rotations?

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars uenragedbro says:

    Prius brake jobs are rare, I have yet to see one come in with pads any lower than in the yellow

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ani C says:

    Dude your commentary is hilarious! "Take a chance" hahaha

  5. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Daniel George says:

    The Autel scanner has a function for bleeding brakes. Do you know what is up with that? I thought may be it might be necessary to use a scan tool for brakes now. Will my wife might be out of a job?

    I love your small town. so quaint.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charlie Lambert says:

    Still unsure why the ears of the pads don't get a dab of lube?

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Charlie Lambert says:

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Beepee Fromabove says:

    Thanks for reminding me to check condition of my emergency brake cable (I do use it semi-regularly), as I drive a 3/4 ton van down south a ways.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alan Ford says:

    Do you have to the car in INVALID mode before the brakes bleeding?

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Newbold says:

    The closed end of a 14mm wrench fits great over the tabs on the parking brake cable to release it. Not as fun as the angle grinder though!

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Craig Newbold says:

    Awesome video. I'm guessing on the bill was a separate line item for Brake Fluid and this was probably around $45 ๐Ÿ™‚

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars George Bollas says:

    after watching his videos, im convinced that fluid film is the best on top of lithium grease lubricant

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ozzy Krahn says:

    the slow motion hispanic us great

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Driveway Garage says:

    Great video, especially liked the music. I recently replaced my front brake pads and managed to get one pad inside out. It started off quite but the more I drove it the noisier it got. When I took it apart, it didn't take me long to figure out what I did wrong.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars paul ellis says:

    needs to but stock in brake clean could get rich

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shawn says:

    I laugh every single time you say "first try". I even know is coming when you get it wrong the first time and still laugh. You should put that on a tee shirts or a key chain some which way, I would buy it

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JBERRY603 says:

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard 1 says:

    So on this Prius you just turned the ignition on and the brake pump works automatically? Thank you

    I have been a subscriber for 2 years now and SMA has taught me alot about the proper way to do things and the confidence I need to complete the job right. One of the Best Auto Repair and Diagnostic YouTube channels on here. Thank you SMA Richards"Mobile"Auto and Air

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Richard King says:

    Seems a pity to leave rust behind, while you were in there? Call me 'anal' but I not only paint the backing plates, but I also do the centres of the disks!! (And any other patches where rust is starting to develop) Then again – its MY car that I'm working on…
