Question about 1998 Chrysler Sebring
Can not remove the caliper to get the pads out.
Posted by Anonymous on
Theyre actually the 10mm bolts. Also use a c-clamp if you have to. Doont forget to siphon the brake fluid out of the reservoir.

There should only be two bolts on the back of the caliper holding it into the knuckle. Removing those two bolts should free the caliper. In fact I believe they're 12 or 13 millimeter bolts.

This is usually pretty simple. Start by removing the brake drum. Sometimes the brake pads themselves prevent easy removal. There should be an adjustment hole on the back side of the backing plate. Pop the rubber plug out. Use a flat tipped screwdriver to turn the notched disc. one way will tighten and the other way will loosen it, usually both sides are different directions. Once the drum pops off you can begin replacing pads. I like to take a digital photo first, just in case... I then take each piece off one at a time and set it on the ground exactly how it went in. There is usually one big spring that holds the two shoes together, this one is tricky to release, but it's easier if you adjust that tensioner all the way in first. There will also be a couple of springs with retainers holding the pads in place. There will be a notch in the retainer, you'll have to push down and twist 90 degrees to release retainers and springs. They make a special tool, but you can use a pliers or vice grip if you're careful. Don't loose the pin or spring and retainer. Clean everything with brake cleaner and start to re-assemble.
