Stering boot torn Sign In

2005 Toyota Solara 4cyl. 70,000 miles

Dealership says, I have a torn 'boot' . How soon should I get it repaired? Also, I need new brake pads on the front wheels, but dealer also wants to grind( or smooth) the (?) . Can't I just have them put on new pads only and save seventy dollars.

Thanks for all your answers. Mrwarren0

That's no, no and no. The dealer has given you sound advice. You have to resurface the rotors to give the new pads the correct surface to ride on. That is how you get all kinds of noises and pulsations in your brakes.


We offer help in answering questions, clarifying things or giving advice but we are not a substitute for an on-site inspection by a professional.
