Question about 2002 Toyota Sienna
If you have change brakes before - it's the same.
Buy OEM pads.
Take off wheel.
Remove two bolts.
Lift/Take off the brake assembly, be careful to not hang by hose.
Check Rotor for uneven wear - should be smooth.
Depending on driving habits, the rotor may need resurfacing/ replacing - your call.
Note the various clips by lining up the new parts exactly the same as the old one.
The trick to sliding the brake assy back on later as the new pads are thicker, is to move back the part that pushes the pads together. This is a round part and probably made an indent in the old brake pad or shim.
Using a piece of wood adn a C-Clamp, slowly move back the rod. You can use a piece of wood adn brute force if you don't have and C-Clamp.
Be careful not to mar/nick/damage the parts
Replace pad and clips.
Use grease the OEM parts usually provide.
Slide back on brake assembly, replace bolts, note torque.
Turn on and pump brakes.
Drive slow and check work.
The other side should be faster now that you did one side.

If you insist on doing it yourself, your best bet is to buy a repair manual for $20 or so. It will also give the the rotor specs to measure whether they need to be changed at this time. I say insist because break repair isn't something that one can afford to do incorrectly.

The piston goes in but the other side of the bracket has sliding pins that are probably frozen in place. Get rebuilt, loaded calipers with the brackets attached and new pads already in place for about $110 each side and the repair is easier. Just did it.

Are there small retainer clips on the studs still? More than likely its just rust built up on the center hub. Take some sand paper to the center hub, as long as e-brake is released and caliper is off, it will come off. I'm not familar with the toyota sienna's but if they have internal drum e-brakes, I would back off the adjuster if they do.

When you say fit properly I assume you mean it's not going back together. Make sure you have the bearings and races installed correctly on the back side and that you are installing the correct rotor on the correct side with the correct bearings. The front and rear bearings look the same but they aren't and if you try putting that rotor on with the front side bearing installed in the rear of the rotor it will never go back together.
