I just finished doing the rears on my 2005 T&C. The caliper pins need to be removed with a 7mm allen wrench. I used an allen socket for a 3/8" ratchet, which was much easier than using my wrenches. These pins are threaded and cannot be "tapped" out as said by someone else.

When you replace them, make sure you have some high temp grease to put on them and check the pin rubber boots to make sure that they are not cracked or damaged. Good luck!.

I have a 98 Grand Voyager, it doesn't have 4 wheel disc brakes as the T+C does,but I believe I used a torx bit to remove the guide pin bolts on the front. That said, In '01 they started making two different caliper assemblies one for the T+C and all 4 wheel disc and a 2nd type for front disc only, which no parts are interchangeable. So they may have changed from torx to something else, but probably not. Hope this is of some help! If not, repost question. Good luck!

How do u change front brakes on a 2004 kia optima


1. Park on a flat and level surface. Apply the parking brake. Secure the vehicle by wedging something behind the wheels to prevent the vehicle from rolling.
2. Use a syringe, turkey baster or similar tool to siphon out the brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir until it's approximately one third full. You can't reuse the old fluid, so you'll need to dispose of it.
3. Remove the wheel and the caliper guide pin bolts. Lift the caliper away from the rotor. Suspend the caliper from the frame using mechanics wire. Remove the brake pads and retainer spring from the caliper. Compress the caliper piston into the bore.
4. Reinstall the brake pads. Place an anti-squeak product on the outside of the brake pads, making sure not to get any of this on the inside of the brake pads. Reinstall the retainer spring to the caliper. Reinstall the caliper in position on the caliper support bracket. Reinstall the guide pin bolts. Reinstall the wheels.
5. Add brake fluid. Start the engine and pump the brakes 3 to 4 times.test drive at slow to moderate speeds to ensure worked correctly.

How do i get the calapers off the rear of a 2006 grand caravane?


Using a C clamp depress the claiper. There a spot right in the middle to do this. Now the fun part hope you have metic hex key set. The 2 caliper guide pins are on the back inside the boots. Which need to be in great condition. Using the metic hex keys some are 7mm or 8mm turn to your right to remove. Rmove the caliper mounting bracket bolts. Fun part #2 removing the disc rotor. Theres parking brake pads or a durm brake system on the inside of the rotor. If the rotor does not slide off. You must remove the rubber gromet on the back of the backing plate. Using a screwdriver or the old brake adjuster tool turn the star wheel to adjust the parking brake in to remove the disc rotor. All brake guides on the calipers & guide pins need to have high temperture brake grease applyed to them. Buy the big bottle for $10 for the front brakes & future use it comes with a bush. Note ** Remove a guide pin take to auto store buy socket to reinstall guide pin/bolt. Why Caliper guide pins 26lbs torque. Caliper mounting bolts 125lb torque

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.

Rear brake caliper removal


I just did the rear caliper on my '95 Deville Concours and found that the caliper would not rotate enough to slide it off the top bolt. My solution was to remove the parking brake cable bracket bolt behind the caliper. This gave me the ability to rotate the caliper enough to get the caliper off of the brake pads and slide the caliper towards the inside of the car.
