How do you get the calipers off the rear?

I have a 2006 Chrysler Town and Country and 2 of the wheel studs broke off. How do you get the calipers off the rear to take the rotors off so I can change the studs? Also, can you purchase studs at an Auto supply company such as Autozone?

    I would say you can buy them at Autozone or your dealer. They usually have to be pressed in.

    The caliper usually has 2 allen head or torx bolts that are horizontal and go in from the back.

If its the same as 2003 there are two big bolt heads holding the caliper supports like 13/ 16 or something take some wire and hang the calipers the disc will come off then there should be another disc that will come off that holds the studs carefull with this because some have the bearings pack inside you should be able to remove the bearing pack the you can take a piece of wood and a hammer and knock the studs out if they are broke use a big screw driver or drive pin to pound it out good luck its not fun but it does get eaiser

Firstly you need to remove the park brake cables from the calipers. undo the bolts that hold the caliper to the hub assembly. lift the caliper away and yes you can buy new studs and nuts/bolts but you may need to go to a main chrysler agent to get them

How do you replace a wheel stud on the front of a 2003 chrysler town and country

In most cases the brake caliper and rotor will have to be removed. The affected stud can then be pounded out with a hammer. An air gun should be used to install the new stud using a spacer between the stud and hub assembly. Put the nut on the stud and using the air gun, pull it through un til it seats against the spacer and the hub

How to replace lug studs on 2002 chrysler town

I'll try to help you. If you are having trouble with 3 out of 5 studs on one wheel you may want to go to an autoparts store or Salvage yard to look at the whole hub. Usually a press is used to remove the bolts so you would be taking off the hub anyway. When you pay for 3 bolts and labor you may be better off in a Salvage yard or parts place for a different hub. The rear hub on front wheel drive cars is like a trailer axle. Much simpler to remove mounting bolts and press in new bolt. But if rear has differential(rear wheel drive) it has an axle shaft. Would be easier to grind and drill out broken stud on car. You can draw new bolt into place by placing bolt through a socket and use the wheel nut to draw the bolt into the hub.

Can't remove the wheel from a 2006 town and country

aluminum wheel, steel hub. corrosion creates a sticky situation. Try a large blow to the side wall of the tire, carefully as the blunt object used will most certainly bounce back! A couple of blows to the front then rear of the sidewall (while looking at tire from side) should brake it free, when replacing, use anti-sieze on the hub where alum and steel meet.
