You need to remove the bolts at the top and bottom of the calipers. They normally require an allen wrench to remove. Hope this helps. In addition, you will need to compress the brake shoe to pull the caliper from the rotor. You can use a c clamp to push the cyl. back into the caliper.

SOURCE: where are the caliper bolts on a 1999 Dodge Dakota

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.

99 chevy lumina rear disc brakes. I thought a caliper bolt was broken. I went to the other side, it looks the same. so one is a bolt, what is the other thing? How does it come off?

you will remove the one bolt that holds the caliper to the bracket. Once that bolt is removed you can rotate the caliper away from the rotor and then slide it off the other caliper slide. Sometimes you will have to rotate it, remove the caliper bracket mounting bolts and then remove the caliper assembly due to the lack of clearance.

How to change brake pads on 1998 daewoo laganza

I am assuming since you said "pads" you are reffering to disc brakes. Jack up car. Remove wheel. Unbolt and remove brake caliper. Remove old brake pads paying attention as to how they were attached and where they were placed. Using a C-clamp, push plunger of caliper back in as far as it will go. Put new pads on to caliper. Bolt caliper back in place. Install wheel. Remove jack.

Rear pad replacement

the caliper has 2 bolts that must be removed and the caliper then comes will after removing the old pads need a caliper piston compressor tool or the new pads will not fit.If you want to remove the rotors,you will need to undo the caliper bracket bolts and remove the bracket.Then the rotor will have to be hit a few times in the center by the studs with a hammer to knock it loose.Be careful not to hit the studs,as the threads can be damaged.Apply a silicone brake lube to the metal pad backing plate and lube the caliper slide pins after cleaning the old lube off.Do not use never sieze on brake parts.Be careful not to get brake lube on any pad surface.use a brake cleaner to remove it if you do.Shims have to be used if they are equipped with them or the brake pads will vibrate.

Replaceing brake caliper on driver side

I am assuming that you mean the brake line is made into the caliper. You will need to trace the brake line backward til you find the junction at the frame and disconnect it there. good luck. Dont forget to rate.

Changing rear rotors

remove the wheel, remove the calipers (two bolts, 12mm head),
you'll have to hold the slides with a 14mm to keep them from spinning while you remove the caliper bolts.
remove the caliper brackets, (two bolts with threadlocker 18mm head I think, get ready for the fight),
remove the little clips from the wheel studs (usually you can pry them up to the threads with a screwdriver then just spin 'em off)....that should do it....pull off the rotor.
