Hybrid brake repair

Does my mechanic need to power down the electric battery on my Camry hybrid to change the brakes?

No.

Only if he’s scared of it, and if he is I would find a new mechanic. One who is not scared of hybrids.

I wouldn’t know why. Or how.

Sounds like someone is trying to make a boat payment.
