Question about 2003 Chrysler Town & Country
I changed the rear pads this fall, have you removed the caliper retaining bolts and the Park Brake Cable? I remember the cable being a pain and using a large hammer and pry bar to loosen the caliper. You can pry on the edge of the pad and the hat section of the rotor. The rear rotors aren't expensive and should be done at the same time.

The pistons on the rear brake calipers SCREW in to the caliper. There are notches on the inner edge of the piston face. engage the notches with a large needle nose plier or a large flat washer and turn clockwise (as you face the piston) to turn the piston in.
There is a special tool that is available at your local autoparts store that is absolutely necessary and will save you a ton of time and aggravation. Using a needle nose plier or washer does not allow you to apply enough pressure unless your are the incredible hulk.

remove the caliper bolt, swivel the caliper up and slide off the rod. To push the caliper piston in to accommodate the new pads, you must get the tool to TWIST the piston in while slightly pressing the piston. Check with your local Murrays, Auto Zone for the tool loaner program. Gm W-Body rear caliper tool. Good luck
