Toyota Camry: Obd Code P0420?

P0420 is indication to check / inspect Catalytic Converter.This means the that converter has failed. This is not a sensor issue. Do not let anyone change any of the O2 or AFR sensors. The converter needs replaced. This can be just the one in the front pipe and /or the one in the manifold depending on the VIN and emissions listed for that VIN. IF you live in CA or a state that requires emissions testing this will have to be repaired to pass the SMOG TEST. Otherwise you could ignore the light and keep driving. This will not hurt the engine. The aftermarket converters are cheaper for a reason. They do not last.Getting replace with original parts will give correct performance and last longer.

This details will help.
Thanks.

2008 Toyota Tundra: Brake Rotors and Wheel Bearing Replacing?

How to replace Front Brake Rotors on Toyota Tundra.
And How to replace Left Side Front Wheel Bearing.

The Procedure is very easy for both parts.
There are two 1/4" threded holes into the rotor.
Nothing holds the rotor on. Use a 8mmx 1.25mm pitch bolt to run in the holes to help crack it loose from the hub. Once the rotor is removed and the large axle nut the bearing and hub assembly is held on by 4 bolts. If you live where corrosion is an issue the assembly may be frozen into the steering knuckle.

For wheel bearing i will say,it is tight fit and has to be removed by pressing tool.Local Auto parts store have this tool.Toyota sells the bearing separate from the hub and it has to be pressed apart then back together. You may find an aftermarket that is complete.

This details will help.
Thanks.
