I work for a brake repair shop and trust me you are not alone.Enterprise and alot of other people bought the same van and had the same trouble.I hate to say but it doesnt stop there.About every 14 to 15 thousand miles you have to replace the front pads.As of now they dont have an upgrade,for instance ceramic pads, but I am sure they will very soon

SOURCE: How in the world do you change brake pads on a 2002 Town&Country

After supporting the vehicle safely.....With the wheel off you should see two bolts facing away from you near the top of each end of the caliper.
Remove these two bolts then pop the caliper up and off with a big screw driver or pry bar exposing the brake pads.
Do not remove the brake hose.
Replace pads....push caliper piston back into caliper and reinstall caliper and bolts.
Thread locker (liquid) should be applied to caliper bolts.
Caliper sliders....the parts the bolts go into .....should slide easily in calipers.
Push brake pedal a few times to restore pedal height before driving.

SOURCE: i need to change front brake pads

You have two bolts to remove the caliper (it will still be attached to the flex hose). then use a C clamp to compress the caliper piston (one side on outside brake pad the other end on the back of the caliper). Inspect other components, replace pads and reinstall. I would highly recommend replacing rotors as well or at least having them turned. Its a pretty easy job if you have done similar jobs in the past.

SOURCE: Two more cases of 2008 town and country brake wear

Depending on driving habits and where you drive premature pad wear can and is caused alot by improperly adjusted rear brakes and parking brake cables. With the rear brakes out of adjustment or not working properly the front brakes end up doing more up to 90% of the stopping of the car. Now a days people forget about the rear brakes be cause of the use of so-called self adjusters. I can tell you from over 22 years experience 90% of the time the self adjusters ether don't work at all or very poorly. So for you and your friend keep that in mind and have your rear brakes checked and adjusted every other oil change and the premature wear of your front pads will end.

SOURCE: how do I remove the rear brake pads off of my van

This is usually pretty simple. Start by removing the brake drum. Sometimes the brake pads themselves prevent easy removal. There should be an adjustment hole on the back side of the backing plate. Pop the rubber plug out. Use a flat tipped screwdriver to turn the notched disc. one way will tighten and the other way will loosen it, usually both sides are different directions. Once the drum pops off you can begin replacing pads. I like to take a digital photo first, just in case... I then take each piece off one at a time and set it on the ground exactly how it went in. There is usually one big spring that holds the two shoes together, this one is tricky to release, but it's easier if you adjust that tensioner all the way in first. There will also be a couple of springs with retainers holding the pads in place. There will be a notch in the retainer, you'll have to push down and twist 90 degrees to release retainers and springs. They make a special tool, but you can use a pliers or vice grip if you're careful. Don't loose the pin or spring and retainer. Clean everything with brake cleaner and start to re-assemble.

Dodge, Plymouth, and Chrysler minivans are notorious for poor longevity of the front brake pads. Also, the low friction material "squeel" tabs are none to brake off or just not do the job they are meant to do. That is why people end up haveing to replace their rotors. I am an ASE certified mechanic with just under 15 years of experience. I tell all my customers with Chrysler minivan products to have their brakes at least once a year to avoid costly repair bills. If you can catch your brake pads before they start grinding into the rotors that's an expense everyone can afford to not have.
