Question about 2007 Dodge Caravan SXT Minivan New Cars
There is a special rear brake caliper tool that you can "borrow" from your local Auto Zone. You put a deposit down and they give you the whole amount back when you take it back. Basically the tool spins the piston and it pushes it back in. You can do it without it, but man, it takes more time to do it like that than to drive down to Auto Zone to get the tool. Here is a link to what you will get from Auto Zone: http://www.autozone.com/autozone/catalog/accessories/accessoriesShelf.jsp?categoryDisplayName=Tools&fromType=accessories&fromString=search&parentId=cat30101&filterByKeyWord=rear+brake+caliper+piston+tool¤tPage=1&navValue=101242&categoryNValue=100006&fromWhere=&subPartId=prod62420&itemId=prod62420&displayName=Disc+Brake+Caliper+Tool

You will need a 7mm allen wrench or socket the socket is easier with a ratchet to undo the 2 bolts that hold the caliper on.After you take the bolts out take a screw driver and pry up on the caliper to release it off the rotor. your calipers are on top of the rotors. To compress the caliper pistons in take a pair of channel locks that open up alot then with the back brake pad still on squeeze the piston and pad in. That should do it :)
