How do you replace rotors on a 1993 Dodge Caravan SE?

I can not remove the front disc rotors from my 1993 Dodge Caravan SE. I need to replace the disc pads, and can not remove the inner pads. I used a compressor and an impact air wrench to remove the bolts for the rotor, to no avail.

How do i remove front rotors


No. It is only held on by the lug nuts. If it is stuck you may need to hit it with a rubber mallet, or use a block of wood and regular hammer.

How do you replace a fuel pump in a 1993 grand caravan?


The pump is in the gas tank. On some early 90s models you could access the pump thru an access plate without dropping the tank.
Otherwise you have to drop the tank and take the pump out thru the top. If you do replace it, make sure you replace the filter too.

Replacing brakes on a 2007 dodge grand caravan se


Front brakes are pretty easy, just go to http://www.customtacos.com/tech/index.php?article=37 for step-by-step instructions with pictures. On the bolts that it tells you to remove, it says they are 17mm, on the caravan they will take a 12mm socket to remove (at least on my 2007 short wheel base SE). The only issue I have with this site is it does not tell you how to remove rotors, and I NEVER replace brake pads without having my rotors turned or replaced. after you have swung the caliper up like the instructions on the website tell you to, you'll notice the rotors are still held in place by the caliper mounting bracket. It is held on with two large bolts that bolt in from the back. If I remember right, they are a 3/4" or 19mm socket. If they've been on for a while (my first brake change was at 48,000 miles) then you will need WD40, a big socket wrench, and a lot of elbow grease to get those loose. Once that's free, you can easily remove the rotors. I would take them to Checker or another local auto parts store that turns rotors, they will let you know if they can be turned or if they need to be replaced. If you get new rotors, don't forget to clean them off with brake cleaner before installing them!!! They are coated with an anti-rust chemical that is very sticky and will smoke for miles and affect your braking. For rear brakes (assuming they are drums, if not, they will be the same as the front), there is a pretty good tutorial at http://trashcars.net/videos/1436/how-to-replace-rear-drum-brakes.html. You should also have your drums turned or replaced when you replace the rear brake shoes as well.

1993 Dodge Grand Caravan Transmission issue


A broken engine or tranny mount should not cause a front wheel to wobble. If this is happening with a grinding noise I'd expect more of a failing bearing or such. The grinding noise may also be a rotor of the brakes with poor pads. Yes, if a axel, or CV joint, is failing this can make noise too, often times a "clicking" type of noise. Best get the front of the van up on jack stands, remove the tires and inspect all of the front-end components; pay special attention CV joints, rotors and front axel area, loose movement in the axels?
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

How do i replace front drivers side brake caliper?


Jack the van up, remove the tire. Then you will see the caliper. There will be 2 bolts that hold it on to the rotor. Remove the bolts and pry it off with a screw driver or what ever works. Then disconnect the break line from the caliper. After you get the new one use a c-clamp to press the piston down into the caliper and install the brake pads. Bolt the caliper back into place and install the line. Loosen up the bleed valve on the caliper 1/2 turn and have someone pump the breaks until no air bubbles come out. Once you have a smooth stream of brake fluid coming out the valve have that person pump once more and hold the pedal all the way to the floor. Then tighten the valve.
