They're on the top & bottom of the caliper. They should be 12 or 14 mm. Not the inner bolt that are about 19mm or bigger,those hold the entire bracket on.

Front right brake is stuck on 99 dakota

your problem sounds like a seized caliper. You will need a mechanic to unseize it and replace the caliper. Parts are generally not expensive but to do it yourself you will need knowledge of bleeding brake lines. The caliper is what pushes the brake pads tight against the rotor to stop you. when you release the brakes, the caliper loosens. when it seizes, it just doesn't release

1991 dodge dakota front brake sticks when driven 15 or 20 miles and pulls hard to the left

check the caliper it may be hanging up also check the rubber brake hose sometimes they collapse or swell causing drag either way you probably need 2 calipers and new lines(hoses) along with pads.

How do iI remove the front wheel bearing?

The front wheel bearings on your Dodge Dakota allow the wheels to spin freely on the axle spindle. These sealed bearings may cause noise once they wear out, develop a pit on the races, bends and other damage that interfere with wheel performance. However, the front bearings form a single assembly with the wheel hubs and they should be replaced as a single unit. Fortunately, installing a new assembly is not a difficult process.

  1. Removing the Hub/Bearing Assembly
    • Before raising the front wheel(s), loosen the half shaft nut using an axle nut socket. Then remove the wheel/tire assembly and the half shaft nut. If your particular Dakota model comes equipped with an Anti-lock Bake System (ABS) sensor, remove the sensor form its bracket and move it aside.

      Now you are ready to remove the brake caliper and rotor. Make sure to secure the caliper to the coil spring using a piece of heavy wire. Do not let it hanging by the brake line to avoid damage to the brake hose attached to the caliper. With the caliper and rotor out of the way, you have access to the hub/bearing assembly mounting bolts.

      On some models, you can only access the hub/bearing mounting bolts through the holes in front of the hub/bearing assembly. Rotate the assembly by hand as you loosen and remove the mounting bolts. Once you remove the bolts, you can detach the hub/bearing from the steering knuckle and halfshaft. If the bearing assembly seems stuck to the halfshaft, use a 3 jaw gear puller to remove it.

How do I replace right front wheel bearings on 1999 Dodge Dekota?


It is a whole hub assembly. You remove the pin and unbolt the hub assembly and replace.

What is needed is to raise your truck and support it with jack stands ( no concrete blocks) then remove the brake caliper and pads, be sure to support the caliper with mechanic's wire or what you have on hand that will do the job.

Then remove the brake rotor "hat" then remove the cotter key then the hub retainer nut and remove the hub. The new hubs are greased so just replace the hub torque, install new cotter key the rotor hat and pads and caliper.

I hope this helps.

I have a 1999m dodge dakota pu 6cyl and both front calipers donot retract after applied

hi, sometimes rust seizes the operation of calipers, and the caliper PISTONS seizes solid. rectification is to replace BOTH CALIPERS ALWAYS. because if the left caliper works, but, the right do'nt then it will throw your vehicle into trafic or vice versa. you will need to take off the brake fluid pipe,but, if you use a BRAKE PIPE CLAMP and do one side first before undoing the caliper. the bleeding of the brake system is minimal it do'nt leak out so much. gerry
