Wrong sized pads! Best you can do is compare info with a few part suppliers because I had the same thing happen to me. They tried to mix and match my rotors,pads and calipers but there was 3 different sizes.

2009 town and country rear brake caliper does not come off

Sure it does

Only rust & the lip worn into the rotor from the brake
pads,holding it on

Grind down some of the out step & rust on the rotor you
can get to ,with an electric or air powered tool & sanding

Then use a small pry bar or old screw driver in the caliper
& behind the pads to push the piston in some,then the pads
will clear the rotor

You will have to not only push in the piston to make room
for new pads,but screw in the piston if you have an internal
parking brake,open the bleeder also to make it easier

You can't just change pads without turning the rotors
& you have to remove all rust from caliper slides &
abutements & lube them
You can turn the rotors by hand & know the brakes
are not the issue, if you did the proper brake service/work

Converting from std duty rotors to hd vented rotors

Turning brake rotors involves removing the rotor from car & having a machine shop or automotive repair center spin them on a lathe & slowly grind down the surfaces until they are clean, level, and true. Not needed with every brake pad replacement.------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm driving a 2000 Chrysler 300M. Had front brake pads & rotors changed 2 weeks ago. Front end has been noisy since & I suspect sticking calipers , as i was informed they did not get clean

The front calipers are not the problem...did a shop replace the pads and rotors? Or did a friend replace these parts. The Chrysler front pads and rotors are an excellent design...easy to service and replace parts...only 2 bolts hold on each caliper, and the rotor is held in place with the caliper, and wheel. My first thought was a front wheel bearing is grinding, but you should have noticed this before the brake parts change. The pads could be installed backwards second thought was you may have a loose wheel or two...retighten all 5 lug nuts by using the "star" tightening method, you may be surprised that the loose lug nuts are the only problem. Hope this helps.

Escalade Grinding sound coming from left front when stopping

Most likely cause would be disc brake pads grinding against brake rotor.

Rear brakes are grinding on one side.

Replace the pads and see if rotor that pad was grinding on can be resurfaced.If not replace it.While you have it apart lube the caliper slide's with anti-seeze or a brake lube so the caliper can move smoothly.

Grinding noise when I pull off and clunking noise on bumps

Front hub bearing. If you were the one who replaced the pads you should have turned the hub while the caliper was off and checked for roughness or wobble. Imagine the rotor wandering from side to side and rubbing the pads; thats what a worn hub will do.

When pressing on the break a loud grinding noise comes from beneath the car

Your brake pads are shot, and the noise you hear is the metal of the caliper grinding on the rotor. If this just started happening, you can probably save the rotor and just buy pads. If the rotor's surface is gouged or scraped badly, you'll need new rotors too. Don't drive the car unless you are driving it to a shop to have the brake work done - it's very dangerous as you have greatly diminished stopping power.

Oh, and if they try to tell you that you need new calipers too, trust me - you don't. When the calipers grind on the rotor, the rotor takes the damage. Pay for new rotors, new pads, and I'd have them do a full flush and fill of the brake fluid too (never hurts to do this).
