    Default Toyota Camry brake adjustment

    I own a 4 cylinder 2001 Camry. I was told by my dealer that I would
    have to have the rear brakes adjusted along with the normal brake
    inspection. I have no braking problems and dealer quoted a price of 80
    dollars. I always thought these later model cars had self adjusting
    brakes. Please advise me . Thanks ED

    If the pedal does not feel low and the handbrake travel is less than 6
    clicks or so, the rear brake adjustment is already ok. Unlike most
    other makes Toyota self adjusters don't work when you back up and
    brake, but only when you apply the parking brake with the brake pedal
    depressed. Most people with automatics don't use the parking brake so
    the rear shoes get out of adjustment and need manual adjustment when
    the brakes are inspected, which is probably why the shop recommended
    adjusting the rears. So pull up on your handbrake--if it's not
    engaged within 6 clicks, let them adjust the rears.
