IS350 caliper upgrade! Need help!
 
Does anyone know how to remove the brake dust shield cover?! I took out all the bolts and still can't seem to remove the shield...

You have to remove the hub to remove the brake dust shields. If you removed that already, then just pry at the shield. It's probably caked on, and needs a little elbow grease to get loose

ooo i see... how do u remove the hub? lol :D

It's much easier to just cut a small portion of the dust shield and then bend it a bit instead of removing the hub. Unless you already spent the money on the 350 shield

BTW: I've done my previous IS250 and a couple of friends and thats the way I've done it every time.

I ran into this problem when I was doing mine. It is impossible to remove the wheel bearing to install the dust shield without damaging it. I tried wd-40, prying it off, and yanking it out with the wheel back on. I eventually gave up and just trimmed the dust shields with a snip.

The hub is holding by 4 bolts on the back, you need to disconnect the speed sensor as well.

Don't need to take it to a shop, you'll just need the proper tools.
