Toyota Avalon Service & Repair Manual: Replacement

REPLACEMENT

CAUTION / NOTICE / HINT

NOTICE:

  • Perform fluid replacement with the shift lever in P and the parking brake applied.
  • Perform fluid replacement while maintaining the brake fluid level between the MAX and MIN lines on the brake fluid reservoir.
  • If the No. 1 brake actuator hose (the hose between the brake booster pump assembly and brake master cylinder reservoir assembly) is higher than the fluid level when the pump motor is operating, air will enter the hose and brake booster pump assembly and it may become difficult to replace brake fluid.
  • When performing fluid replacement, the accumulator pressure drop may cause a buzzer to sound. As this is not a malfunction, continue with the fluid replacement.
  • If fluid replacement is performed, a motor drive permission malfunction or accumulator low pressure DTC may be stored. Clear the DTCs after performing fluid replacement or whenever specified by a procedure.
  • Do not allow brake fluid to contact any painted surface. If brake fluid leaks onto any painted surface, immediately wash it off.
  • When performing fluid replacement, do not continuously operate the pump motor for more than 100 seconds. If the pump motor is operated for more than 100 seconds, release the brake pedal to stop operation of the pump in order to prevent damage to the pump motor.
  • As brake fluid may overflow from the reservoir when brake fluid is released from the accumulator, do not invert and place the brake fluid bottle on the reservoir filler opening.

HINT:

There are 2 ways of brake fluid replacement: using the Techstream or not using the Techstream.

PROCEDURE

1. REPLACE BRAKE FLUID (When Using the Techstream)

(a) Fill the reservoir with brake fluid.

(1) Remove the brake master cylinder reservoir filler cap assembly.

(2) Add brake fluid to the reservoir until the fluid level is between the MAX and MIN lines on the brake fluid reservoir.

Brake Fluid:

SAE J1703 or FMVSS No. 116 DOT3

SAE J1704 or FMVSS No. 116 DOT4

(b) Replace the brake fluid.

(1) Connect the Techstream to the DLC3 and turn the power switch on (IG).

(2) Turn the Techstream on and enter the following menus: Chassis / ABS/VSC/TRAC / Utility / Air Bleeding/AHB-R Utility.

Chassis > ABS/VSC/TRAC > Utility

Tester Display

Air Bleeding/AHB-R Utility

(3) Select "Brake Line Air Bleeding", and replace the brake fluid following the instructions on the Techstream.

(4) After replacing brake fluid, tighten each bleeder plug.

Torque:

8.3 N·m {85 kgf·cm, 73 in·lbf}

(c) Install the brake master cylinder reservoir filler cap assembly.

(d) Clear the DTCs.

(e) Turn the Techstream off then turn the power switch off.

(f) Inspect for brake fluid leaks.

2. REPLACE BRAKE FLUID (When Not Using the Techstream)

NOTICE:

  • Performing the following procedure enters ECB (Electronically Controlled Brake system) Invalid Mode without using the Techstream.
  • ECB (Electronically Controlled Brake system) Invalid Mode allows the brake fluid to be replaced without using the Techstream.
  • The brake warning light blinks (yellow) to indicate that ECB (Electronically Controlled Brake system) Invalid Mode is selected.
  • Be sure to confirm that the brake warning light is blinking (yellow) throughout the brake fluid replacement procedure.
  • If any of the following conditions are met, ECB (Electronically Controlled Brake system) Invalid Mode is canceled and the brake warning light (yellow) turns off. Do not allow ECB (Electronically Controlled Brake system) Invalid Mode to be canceled while replacing brake fluid or DTCs may be stored.

    The shift lever is moved from P to any other position.

    The power switch is turned on (READY).

    The power switch is turned off.

    The parking brake is released.

    The vehicle speed is more than 0 km/h (0 mph).

  • Do not rotate any brake disc while ECB (Electronically Controlled Brake system) Invalid Mode is selected.
  • Although the brake warning light will blink (yellow) and a buzzer will sound while performing fluid replacement, this is not a malfunction.

(a) Remove all 4 wheels.

(b) Enter ECB (Electronically Controlled Brake system) Invalid Mode.

(1) Perform the procedure listed below within 1 minute.

  1. Turn the power switch on (IG) with the shift lever in P and parking brake applied.
  2. Move the shift lever to N and then depress the brake pedal more than 8 times within 5 seconds.
  3. Move the shift lever to P and then depress the brake pedal more than 8 times within 5 seconds.
  4. Move the shift lever to N and then depress the brake pedal more than 8 times within 5 seconds.
  5. Move the shift lever to P.

(2) Check that the brake warning light is blinking (yellow).

*a

Brake Warning Light (Yellow)

(c) Fill the reservoir with brake fluid.

(1) Remove the brake master cylinder reservoir filler cap assembly.

(2) Add brake fluid to the reservoir until the fluid level is between the MAX and MIN lines on the brake fluid reservoir.

Brake Fluid:

SAE J1703 or FMVSS No. 116 DOT3

SAE J1704 or FMVSS No. 116 DOT4

(d) Replace the brake fluid.

HINT:

When replacing the brake fluid using vacuum, the brake fluid bottle can be inverted and placed on the reservoir filler opening.

(1) Connect a vinyl tube to the bleeder plug of the front disc brake cylinder assembly RH.

(2) Depress the brake pedal several times, and then loosen the bleeder plug with the pedal depressed.*1

(3) When fluid stops coming out, tighten the bleeder plug, and then release the brake pedal.*2

(4) Repeat steps *1 and *2 until new brake fluid comes out.

(5) Tighten the bleeder plug completely.

Torque:

8.3 N·m {85 kgf·cm, 73 in·lbf}

(6) Replace brake fluid from the front disc brake cylinder assembly LH using the same procedure as for the RH side.

(7) Connect a vinyl tube to the bleeder plug of the rear disc brake cylinder assembly LH.

(8) Depress the brake pedal several times, and then loosen the bleeder plug with the pedal depressed.*3

(9) When fluid stops coming out, tighten the bleeder plug, and then release the brake pedal.*4

(10) Repeat steps *3 and *4 until new brake fluid comes out.

(11) Tighten the bleeder plug completely.

Torque:

8.3 N·m {85 kgf·cm, 73 in·lbf}

(12) Replace brake fluid from the rear disc brake cylinder assembly RH using the same procedure as for the LH side.

(13) Turn the power switch off.

(e) Inspect for brake fluid leaks.

(f) Adjust the brake fluid level in the reservoir.
