Re: 1990 Grand caravan rear seat removal
Assuming that you don't have Stow & Go, follow these directions: At the base and back of the seat, on both sides, is a handle. The handle acts like a trigger grip. When you press on the handle with your fingers and push down with your palm, a small tab will pop up. That is the sign that you are doing this correctly. Do this to one side and then the other. Before you start pressing triggers though, grasp the handle on the right side of the seat near the seat bottom ( different handle between the seat and side panel) and pull it back toward the rear of the van, that will allow the seat back to fold forward. This will get it out of way so you can maneuver the seat better.
Once you have both triggers sprung, the seat will lift up and out of the seat tracks so you can pull it out the back. It is a two person job unless you want to flop it out and scratch the rear bumper. If you're relatively able-bodied with a good back and can handle a very awkward load, go for it solo.
I have owned 4 of these vans and the seating is very reliable, but make very sure that when you put the seats back in that you get them in the tracks correctly. Don't do this at night unless you have a flashlight to ensure that you are lining the seat up correctly - you've got too much riding on the outcome.

The pad drums of your 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan can wear with use. Heat buildup in the brakes can glaze, warp or crack the drum. If that happens, replacement of the drum is the only way to fix it. In most cases, you can remove the rear drums, replace them with a new set and leave the existing shoes on the van. Take a minute and inspect the brake shoes thoroughly while you have the drums off the van.
Loosen the lug nuts on the rear of your 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan with a lug wrench. Do not take them off the wheel studs.
Raise the rear of the van with a jack and support it on a set of jack stands. Place the stands under the rear suspension, making sure they are secure. Remove the lug nuts from the wheel studs and pull off the rear wheels.
Check the rear drum where the wheel studs come through for retaining clips. These are used during the manufacturing process; and if they are still on your van, they need to be removed. Pry the clip off the wheel stud with a flat head screwdriver and discard them. Most vehicles will have two clips on each brake drum.
Grasp the brake drum on the outer edges and pull it straight off the wheel studs and brake pads. Discard the old drum and slide the new drum into place, aligning the holes in the drum with the wheel studs. Push the drum in until it seats completely. Repeat the process on the opposite side of the van.
Position the wheel back on the wheel studs and install the lug nuts by hand. Raise the back of the van with a jack and remove the jack stands from under the suspension. Lower the van to the ground and tighten the lug nuts with a lug wrench.
Hi, i just replaced the Fuel Filter on my 1990 Dodge Grand Caravan LE. The fuel filter was located on the passenger side, underneath the front passenger seat. If you go straight down from the front passenger door handle, its almost directly under it. You will have to get UNDER the van to see it, as it is mounted on the INSIDE of the chassis rail. It took one bolt to remove from the chassis, and two hose clamps to remove. BEWARE: it is a pressurized (lightly) fuel line. Wear some goggles, gloves, and have something to catch the fuel that will inevitably spill out. The filter itself was $12 at my local parts store. I also have a 1994 Plymouth Voyager, which is almost identical to the Caravan, and the fuel filter is located in the exact same position. Take care
Rear open hatch. Remove 2 retaining pop fasteners, turn taillight towards outside of van. Don't break hook(tab) on the light assembly. Squeeze the tab on bulb pull bulb straight out. Check hook grommet on van. Replace if cracked can cause water leak on van
There are 2 handles on the back of the seat where it attaches to the floor. If you hold the button on the handle and push it down it should release the seat from the floor. After this it just rolls out the back. Same for the middle seat if you need to remove it.
If yours is a Braun Entervan conversion and the spare tire has been relocated to the inside rear behind the seat, your rear seats will not come out, they are bolted to the floor. From the factory, they are designed to unlatch and come out, but after the conversion, the undercarriage of your van is completely different, especially if you have a lowered floor, and even more so if you have a kneeling van. If you unbolt the rear seats, you will have to bolt them back in, they're not quick releae anymore. If you van floor is lowered (usually about 10") "High Water" has a whole new meaning for you, it doesn't have to be very high at all to flood your interior.

The air filter for the cabin is located inside the van, look under the glove box door there should be a plastic holder that slides to the rearward of the van pull this back and a flat plastic door will come off, the door is two parts.
Some base vans do not have this filter if you look at the bottom of this and see a 1/2 long plastic stud sticking out of the bottom there is no filter in this.
