if its the outer tie rod then you can loosen the lock nut on threaded portion that attaches to the inner tie rod then remove the nut that locks the tie rod to the spindle assembly.you can hit the area were the tie rod stud goes through the hole to loosen it to remove it from the assembly.then count the number of turns to remove it from the inner tie rod end.then install the new one the number of turns you took the old one off and reassemble in reverse order.its a good idea to get the alignment done to make sure the wheels are positioned right and not wear the tires out early.
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.
TAKE VECHICLE TO SEARS AUTO CENTER OR ANY TIRE WHEELS BRAKE ALIGNMENT SHOP THEY CAN PRESS OUT THE STUD WITH OUT DAMAGING WHEEL BEARING.AND PRESS YOU IN A NEW LUG NUT STUD.PROBABLY CHARGE YOU $25.00 DOLLARS.
remove all brake components off of that side, pound out studs towards center of the car with a hammer. place the new studs through the back of the axle and then use washers that just fit over the studs for spacers, and put the lugnut on the stud and tighten until the new stud is seated on the back flange of the axle. remove the lugnut and repeat for the rest of the studs.
The lugs are generally pressed into the rotor. They have a fluted shank which prevents them from turning when you torque the lugnuts. If you are going to do this job yourself, they can be driven out with a punch. The new replacement can be drawn into position with the lugnut, but you might need to utilize some spacers and washers to do this.
I've performed this operation before with the rotor still on the vehicle.
I hope this helps... Good luck!
No there is no difference you just do it like normal. Take off the wheel, remove the resivoir cap, take off the caliper, remove the old pads, compress the caliper, install the new pads and put the caliper back on, then the tire, and on to the next.
Make sure you pump the peddle after your done then check the fluid level. If all is good and your not leaking any fluid you should be all good.
usually they are an assembly but when i get crazy and damage studs i raise and support both front wheels so i can turn them and slowly move the hub where you can fit teh stud in and use an open lugnut to tighten down it will pull the stud in (i use an air compressor for this)
