Car Information:
Lexus/IS 300
Year: 2004
Engine Size:
Trans: manual 

Issue / Question:
My sons IS 300’s rear brakes are scratching the rotor on the outer edge. Is this a hard fix? Do I need any special tools? I have done front Chevy and Plymouth disk brakes. Just looking at the Lexus I see a pin, 2 (torq head) bolts, a shield and anti rattle pin. Do i need any tool besides a clamp to compress the piston on the caliper? To remove the rotor will it just come off? Any other advice would be greatly appreciated.  

Other than the caliper pins and maybe a Torx I can’t think of anything special. The E-brakes should be on the inside of the rotors and the pistons should compress like on older cars.
