There is a clip inside the cap, you need to remove the cap. you can use a small screwdriver to pry it up or tap it with a rubber mallet.make sure to reset the bearing after you are done and use alot of grease. tighten the nut and spin the tiretight. then back off to put the pin back... kindly rank me

There might be a start washer on one of the wheel studs that hold the rotor in place, If not. A good hit from a hammer will break the rotor free from the wheel hub, chances are there being held on by corrosion. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted, be glad to help.

2001 dodge caravan rear brake knocking when applying brakes


Sounds like you need some brake service. I would take your pads off and check them replace if necessary, check rotors and replace if needed, check calipers and replace if needed. If this is a drum set check shoes, and drum, and wheel cylinders. Bleed system.

How to replace brake pad and rotor on 2000 dodge stratus


First, take off the tire. Use an air tool if you have it. Then loosen the bolts holding the caliper to the rotor. Then pull the caliper off the rotor and take the rotor off the hub. Simply put the new rotor on the hub. Then take off the old pads and pay attention to how they are on to make it easier to install the new ones. Next you need a C-clamp. You have to push the piston back down inside the caliper for it to fit on the rotor with the new pads. Put on the new pads and put it in place on the rotor. Tighten the bolts back on the caliper and you're almost done. I also like to put never seize on the rotor around where the tire touches it so it's easier to remove for the next time. Put the tire back on and tighten it up. That's all! Good luck!

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.

How to remove rear brakes on 2001 dodge caravan


Things You'll Need:
  • Floor jack Jack stand Wheel chock 1/2-inch drive breaking bar 1/2-inch drive socket set 1/2-inch drive ratchet C-clamp Bungee cord Flathead screwdriver Ball peen hammer Handheld portable propane torch (optional) Medium grade sand paper or emery cloth Anti-seize lubricant.
STEPS TO REPLACE REAR BRAKES
  1. Park the Dodge Caravan on a level paved or concrete surface.2
  2. Place a wheel chock in front of one of the front tires.3
  3. Break the lug nuts loose on the reartires.4
  4. Lift one side of the rear axle of theCaravan using the floor jack and place a jack stand under the rear axle.5
  5. Remove the lug nuts and tire.6
  6. Remove the caliper bolts using the ratchet and a socket. Remove the pads from the caliper starting with the outboard pad and pry it from the caliper housing with a flathead screwdriver. Remove the inboard pad and compress the piston of the caliper in using the C-clamp. Replace the pads. Hang the caliper to the frame using the bungee cord.
  7. Remove the caliper anchor bolts using the ratchet and a socket.8
  8. Remove any retaining rings on the hub of the rotor around the studs. Pry them off with the screwdriver and discard them. You will not need them for reinstallation.
  9. Strike the fin of the rotor on the edge using the ball peen hammer. Spin the rotor and strike it often and from the inside of the tire well moving out. Use as much force as necessary. If the rotor still does not want to come off (rare cases) light up the portable propane torch and apply a liberal amount of heat to the hub of rotor around the lug studs and strike with the hammer to shock it from the hub.0Sand down the hub facing with a medium grade sandpaper or emery cloth once the rotor has been removed and the hub has cooled down if you had to use the torch. Sand down the edges of the hub as well.
  10. Apply a light coat of anti-seize lubricant to the edge of the hub and this will help in the future when the rotor needs to be removed again for whatever reason.
  11. Replace the parts in reverse procedure and repeat the steps for the other side.

I need to know what type of tool is required to remove the caliper on the front of a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan.


I discovered that you need to remove the entire assembly in order to remove the rotor.So all I needed was the socket to remove the hanger that the caliper was attached to.
