    Hello my names Eddy and I'm writing you from sunny California. A coworker of mine went up to me and said I heard you work on cars.I was like yeah so he asked me if I can do w couple of things for him.he has a 08 prerunner And wants new rotors,pads,drums, shoes,spark plugs, air filter, cabin filter. I said no problem . I built my car (mr2) from the ground up so I know my way around a car. Just I have never worked on these cars.any special tools needed for the rear brakes? Also can someone tell me where the cabin filter is located? I wanted to know how Much you would charge in labor,don't want to overprice him or underprice him. Thanks in advance

    Unless he has ridiculous miles on his truck, you won't need to do the rear brakes, they should last at the very minimum 75K miles, but even then I had mine replaced for other reasons and they were almost like new. They should last 100k easily. Just check the wear indicator and verify its good.

    Front brakes are a cinch... nothing special. Assuming you work at a decent rate, it would take you probably 3 hours by yourself. Shop rates are generally 75 dollars an hour or more.


    EDIT: Look in t he back of the owners manual and it will tell you what is due and when. You'll see theres not much!

    M8x1.25 bolt to back the drums off.

    Stock spark plugs on the v6 are NGK on one side and Denso on the other. I went all NGK copper plugs when I changed mine out.

    Cabin filter is behind the glove box, the glove box dampener thing is really easy to break and a total PITA.
