Ok, i'm assuming your replacing them, there is an oval rubber stopper on the backside of the rotor, in the backing plate, located near the bottom. it will tighten or loosen the e-brake shoes inside the rotor, loosen them all the way off, then get a big hammer and give them a really good smack, be carefull not to damage the wheel studs, if your reusing them hit on the hat of the rotor, if replacing you can hit right on the rotor face.
Use some antiseize on the hub before installin your new rotors, and don't forget to readjust your
e-brake and reinstall the rubber plug

Battery light came on a few days ago. Then it came back on then van just went dead, Nothing comes on now. It is a chrysler 2006 town and country van. I have noticed a loud noice coming from the serpine...

The battery charge light comes on when the alternator is not generating electricity therefore there is nothing recharging your battery so it goes dead. This could be because your alternator is worn out or a wire broke but it is more likely that the fanbelt broke and is not turning the alternator.

2005 Town & Country Van dead battery after short trips

Possible dead cell in battery, most likely a fault in the charging system. First, Jump Vehicle to get started then remove the Negative cable. If the vehicle dies when you take the jumper cables away or when you disconnect the negative cable your alternator or charging system is faulty. If the vehicle runs without battery connected you have a bad cell in your battery, replace the battery.
