Passenger side front brake was making a noise and upon inspection, the pad wear was more on the outside pad than the caliper side. Dissaembly found that the upper caliper pin was frozen, and required a torch to heat up after soaking with penetrating oil and hammer to drive rusted pin out, lower pin was not rusted. Due to uneven wear on pads ,all brake pads we're replaced with Akebono Pro ACT Ceramic pads but the caliper hanger that the pad is fitted into required replacement on this side only, the driver side was fine. I found out that frozen caliper pins was a problem with many Toyotas in this year from a TSB. Due to uneven pad wear the passenger disc had to be turned as the pad had gotten low enough and off angle to have pad backing run against the rotor. Rotor was still above minimum thickness. Rears were checked and brake caliper pins were fine but all pins were lubricated with Permatix ceramic pin lubricant as the stock moly based lubricant dries out and hardens. The root cause of the pin seizure is the pin rubber boots had torn and let water in to rust the pin.
