Disc only!!! Remove rear tire. Remove 2 calipar bolts. Hang calipar. Don't leave hang loose. Slide rotor off. If stuck you must adjust the emer. brake, Going around the back side of the backing plate on the bottom. Remove the rubber boot. Using a brake tool or screwdriver adjust the star wheel adjuster to remove the rotor.

How do you get the caliper in on the rear of 2008 dodge caravan


You need to compress the caliper piston back into the caliper assembly to allow the new pads to fit over the rotor. A C clamp can be used to compress the caliper piston. Be sure to remove the brake reservoir cap before compressing the piston and remove excess fluid from the reservoir to prevent over filling.

Replacing brakes on a 2007 dodge grand caravan se


Front brakes are pretty easy, just go to http://www.customtacos.com/tech/index.php?article=37 for step-by-step instructions with pictures. On the bolts that it tells you to remove, it says they are 17mm, on the caravan they will take a 12mm socket to remove (at least on my 2007 short wheel base SE). The only issue I have with this site is it does not tell you how to remove rotors, and I NEVER replace brake pads without having my rotors turned or replaced. after you have swung the caliper up like the instructions on the website tell you to, you'll notice the rotors are still held in place by the caliper mounting bracket. It is held on with two large bolts that bolt in from the back. If I remember right, they are a 3/4" or 19mm socket. If they've been on for a while (my first brake change was at 48,000 miles) then you will need WD40, a big socket wrench, and a lot of elbow grease to get those loose. Once that's free, you can easily remove the rotors. I would take them to Checker or another local auto parts store that turns rotors, they will let you know if they can be turned or if they need to be replaced. If you get new rotors, don't forget to clean them off with brake cleaner before installing them!!! They are coated with an anti-rust chemical that is very sticky and will smoke for miles and affect your braking. For rear brakes (assuming they are drums, if not, they will be the same as the front), there is a pretty good tutorial at http://trashcars.net/videos/1436/how-to-replace-rear-drum-brakes.html. You should also have your drums turned or replaced when you replace the rear brake shoes as well.

I'm changing the rear brakes on my 2008 Dodge G.Caravan, I dunno how to compress the rear caiper piston, in order to fit the new pads on the rotor.


What I use is a big old "C" clamp available at any hardware store. Do a little thinking about the piston as you tighten it, do not want to put any lateral force on it just push it in. May want to take the top off the master cylinder too when you push the fluid backwards.
