The Calipers on the Rotor that Hold the Brake Pads have Bolts on the Back Side at the Top and Bottom for Mounting. Just feel around back there and you will find them. Remove these and the Caliper will come right Off. Let me Know if you need more Help! Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

I can not take the front rotors off on a 1997 dodge intrepid. It looks like 2 nuts hold them on in the middle but im not sure? What do i do? Do the nuts have to come off in the middle to take the rotors...


Yes they do you just need a big enough socket and you need to have someone pushing on the brakes when you are loosening them so do it before you start to remove calipars or pads and there real tight like 140 to 150 ft lbs but with a bracker bar and maybe a short peice of pipe on the end of the bar its not a problem

Sounds like something is dragging on the bottom of the car when it is driven. However, there is nothing dragging.


when your front brake pads wear down to minimum pad thickness a metal tab scrapes against the brake rotor signalling you to service your brakes because there is very little brake material left. this may be the sound you hear.

The hard part is pressing the caliper piston abck into the caliper so you can get the new, thicker pads over the rotor. A large C Clamp works best.

1993 Dodge Intrepid needs starter & front brake pads


Ft brakes are easy as well. You have to remove the 2 caliper to steering knucle guide pin bolts on the caliper, swing it back and tie it up so that you can remove the rotor. Min thickness on the rotors is 22.4, but if you are changing pads, just go to the parts house & get new rotors as they are only about $18. here while turning is $10.
The 3.5 and 3.3 engines have different starters. They are attached to the engine near the transaxle by 3 bolts. Be sure to disconnect the battery before removal. Rick
