Question about 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan
The rear brakes dragging on the passenger side, any idea what would cause this?
Hi, this could be one of a few things the first could be sezied piston on the back brake on that side if this is the case then this would need replacing their is no way of knowing exactly what it is without removing parts and loonking for damage.
The best option would be to temove the wheel and then remove the brake drum if its drum brakes on the back and the check that the piston isnt leaking fluid as this could cause the problem your having.
If its disk brakes on the back then the chances are that the caliper sliders are seized these can be freed up but it would involve removing the calipper pushing the piston back in with a clamp then where the caliper is botled on it runs along slides these will need cleaning up and any rust removing the grease with copper grease only grease the sliders make sure you dont get any on the disk itrself as the brake wont work.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok.
It might also be worth checking that the hand brake is working fine on both sides as a problem with this cojuld cause the problem your having also let me know ok
