  1. Raise and support the front end on jackstands.
  2. Remove the wheels.
  3. Press the caliper piston back into the bore with a suitable prytool. Use a large C-clamp to drive the piston into the bore of additional force is required.
  4. Remove the caliper mounting bolts with a 3/8 in. hex wrench or socket.
  5. Loosen the bolt that secures the front brake hose fitting bolt in the caliper.

  7. Remove the front brake hose fitting bolt completely, then remove the caliper with the pads installed as an assembly. Take care not to drip fluid onto the pad surfaces.
  8. Cover the open end of the front brake hose fitting to prevent dirt entry.
To install:
  1. Clean the caliper and steering knuckle sliding surfaces with a wire brush. Then, apply a coat of Mopar® multi-mileage grease or equivalent.
  2. Lubricate the caliper mounting bolts, collars, bushings and bores with Dow 111® or GE 661® silicone grease or equivalent.
  3. Install the caliper over the rotor and seat it in its original position until flush.
  4. Install the mounting bolts by hand, then tighten them to 38 ft. lbs. (51 Nm) on 2001–02 models; 24 ft. lbs. (32 Nm) on 2003–05 models.
  5. Attach the brake hose, using new washers, and torque the bolt to 20 ft. lbs. (27 Nm).
  6. Install the wheels.
  7. Lower the vehicle.
  8. Pump the brakes several times to seat the pads.
