Your rotors are sandwiched between the hub and the wheel...no bolts involved, just make sure the wheels are tightened correctly (normal, so they don't fall off) Removal of the calipers is necessary to get rotors on...pretty much like any other disc brake caliper. If pads are still good, do figure eights on a piece of 60 or 80 grit sandpaper to break glaze and pattern on them before re-using.

I replaced the pads on the 2007 Town and Country Touring and the caliper starting Burning.


It will not be the caliper burning.... If anything suspect the brake pads. There could be a few problems causing this. Upon installation, were the pads and slide assemblies cleaned and lubricated with synthetic brake grease? If not the pads may be sticking due to lack of lubrication. If lubrication was applied, there may have been some on the pad material and this is what is causing the burning smell. Did the calipers push back easily for installation of the pads or were they stiff? All these points can contribute to a hot smoking brake.

How to replace front brake pads on a How to replace front brake pads on a 2000 Chevy S10 4WD pickup?


First you want to remove brake fluid from brake resovoir, raise front wheels off ground and set park brake or block rear wheels. Remove front wheels, keep steering wheel unlocked so you can turn rotors side to side. Loosen bolts that hold caliper end gently pry caliper free from rotor, remove caliper and remove pads, use bungy cord to hang caliper away from rotor, have rotors measured to see if they are thick enough to have machined, replace if out of specs. Match up pads with old ones, use anti- squeak red liquid and put layer on back of pads, let dry. Use tool to put pistons back into calipers, slowly put pistons back into bore while opening up bleeder screw so ABS won't be damaged. After rotors resurfaced, wash with rubbing alchohal to remove any oils from hands, install rotors and reverse putting pads back onto caliper and reinstall, torque caliper bolts to factory specs and tighten bleeder screws. Install wheels, torque lug nuts to factory specs and replace brake fluid in resovoir. Lower car carefully to ground and press brake peddle without pumping it. Any air in system should bleed out, if not get someone to help with bleeding system. Road test to ensure no squeaks or pulling, burn brakes in slowly.

Having trouble getting caliper off front brakes and 1998 chrysler town and country after taking bolts out


Use a tool wedged between the pad and the rotor to force the piston back.

Don't get carried away, or you'll damage the rotor. Apply gentle pressure, and the piston will slowly go back into the caliper.

The pads don't quite reach the edge of the rotor (by design), and so there is a slight lip on the outside perimeter where the rotor is ever-so-much thicker.

I need to change front brake pads


You have two bolts to remove the caliper (it will still be attached to the flex hose). then use a C clamp to compress the caliper piston (one side on outside brake pad the other end on the back of the caliper). Inspect other components, replace pads and reinstall. I would highly recommend replacing rotors as well or at least having them turned. Its a pretty easy job if you have done similar jobs in the past.
