    My local Garage replaced front Driver side CV joint and front Driver side Wheel Bearing, including both outer CV Gaiters on my Toyota Prius 2007 and as soon as I came out of Garage, I noticed that when I apply brake, just before car becomes stationary, the brake seems to slip a bit and car takes a little jerk before stopping finally.


    I took back to garage and then have no clue, they did a diagnostic test and there are 2 codes. one for ABS (low voltage) and other for capacitor.


    Please help me if you have any idea.

    welcome!
    do they have toyota tech stream diagnostic software and the service manual troubleshooting tree?

    if not, it sounds like they need to pay a dealer to fix their mistakes.

    Isn't there some tricky speed sensor, aligning with dust deflector hole and steering knuckle hole, care needs to be taken with alignment? See attached; might help your shop.

    Google search for "Toyota C1337". First hit has about 4 Priuschat links. Could be your mechanic is out of his depth, you'll have to take it to a Toyota dealership service department? They have Toyota Tech Info website access, Techstream diagnostic software and so on.
