Sliding vehicle When I'm driving my 1999 Chrysler Town & Country in the rain, the vehicle slides when I hit my brakes. I have replaced the front and back brake pads. Also, I even replaced the rollers on the wheels. What causes my vehicle to slide?

2008 town and country,..rear driver side brakes heating up making loud hum noise,..just replaced caliper and still doing it,....help what do i do???


Check the sliding hardware that the caliper bolts too. A glide pin could be seized.

If the caliper can't slide it can jam a pad against the rotor causing noise, heat and warped rotors.

Acan you tell me why my brakes feel like they lift up when i start to slide on ice?? It is a town and country van, and it has some kind of traction setup, but im not sure what its called.


This is the feeling you get when ABS (anti lock brakes) sense a loss of traction. You'll feel almost like the pedal is pushing back against your foot. You may also notice a "humming" sound associated with this action.

When the system sense a slide it will alternately (very rapidly) apply then release pressure to the brakes, in an effort to slow the vehicle without sliding the tires.

I imagine you only notice this on very slippery surfaces, right?

From what I see in your description, there is nothing to worry about. If you continue to feel unsure about it, have a reputable local mechanic have a look at it.

Good luck!

I want to repair the brakes on a 1999 Chrysler Town & Country minivan - Would like instructions and a picture/diagram, if possible.


Chrysler Caravan/Voyager/Town and Country 1996-1999

CAUTION
Older brake pads or shoes may contain asbestos, which has been determined to be cancer causing agent. Never clean the brake surfaces with compressed air! Avoid inhaling any dust from any brake surface! When cleaning brake surfaces, use a commercially available brake cleaning fluid.
  1. Remove brake fluid from the master cylinder brake fluid reservoir until the reservoir is approximately 1/2 full. Discard the removed fluid.
  2. Raise and safely support the of the vehicle. Remove the wheels.
  3. Remove the brake caliper assembly that requires brake pad replacement.
  4. Support the caliper out of the way with a strong piece of wire. Do not let the caliper hang by the brake hose or damage to the brake hose will result.
  5. If necessary, compress the caliper piston into the bore using a C-clamp. Insert a suitable piece of wood between the C-clamp and caliper piston to protect the piston.
  6. Remove the outboard disc brake pad from the caliper by prying the brake pad retaining clip over the raised area on the caliper. Slide the brake pad down and off the caliper.
  7. Remove the inboard disc brake pad from the caliper by pulling the brake pad away from the caliper piston until the retaining clip on the pad is free from the caliper piston cavity.
To install:
  1. Be sure the caliper piston has been completely retracted into the piston bore of the caliper assembly. This is required when installing the brake caliper equipped with new brake pads.
  2. If equipped, remove the protective paper from the noise suppression gaskets on the new disc brake pads.
  3. Install the new inboard disc brake pad into the caliper piston by pressing the pad firmly into the cavity of the caliper piston. Be sure the new inboard brake pad is seated squarely against the face of the brake caliper piston.
  4. Install the outboard disc brake pad by sliding it onto the caliper assembly.
  5. Install the brake caliper assembly.
  6. Install the wheels and lug nuts. Torque the lug nuts, in a star pattern sequence, to 95 ft. lbs. (129 Nm). Apply the brake pedal several times until a firm pedal is obtained.
  7. Check the fluid level in the master cylinder and add fluid as necessary. Road test the vehicle.

Hope helped with this. Good luck (remember rated this help).
