    Grease for brake caliper pins

    I was inspecting the rear brakes trying to find the source of the squeal only when reversing. From the inspection port, I can still see the groove in the brake pads but upon dismantling the calipers, I found that the pads have uneven wear - thin on one end, thick on the other. Similar to this photo


    So the caliper pins needs a clean and regrease. Any recommendations on the correct grease to use?

    Yes of course, the prado caliper is designed well. Can't say that about 2008 Hilux though unfortunately.

    You can take out the slide bolts on the rear calipers to grease them. The rubber boot is just a dust seal.

    Bendix blue satchels $2.50 in a small cardboard box on shelf near the brake pads. My 2008 GXL rear caliper pins are sealed with rubber boots, greased and are clean and pads wear evenly. My 2008 Hilux has exposed pins (front) that get dirty and the inner pad wears unevenly like yours. Can't grease them without collecting dust. Rears are drums!! Hilux is so ancient, Prado is good.

    Thanks for that. Good to know that is can double as antiseize. Doesn't appear to be many Google hits of stores selling these.

    The big tube is around $30 from repco. You can use it as antiseize as well, it doesn't melt or run when hot.
