Things You'll Need:

  • Floor jack Jack stand Wheel chock 1/2-inch drive breaking bar 1/2-inch drive socket set 1/2-inch drive ratchet C-clamp Bungee cord Flathead screwdriver Ball peen hammer Handheld portable propane torch (optional) Medium grade sand paper or emery cloth Anti-seize lubricant.
STEPS TO REPLACE REAR BRAKES
  1. Park the Dodge Caravan on a level paved or concrete surface.2
  2. Place a wheel chock in front of one of the front tires.3
  3. Break the lug nuts loose on the reartires.4
  4. Lift one side of the rear axle of theCaravan using the floor jack and place a jack stand under the rear axle.5
  5. Remove the lug nuts and tire.6
  6. Remove the caliper bolts using the ratchet and a socket. Remove the pads from the caliper starting with the outboard pad and pry it from the caliper housing with a flathead screwdriver. Remove the inboard pad and compress the piston of the caliper in using the C-clamp. Replace the pads. Hang the caliper to the frame using the bungee cord.
  7. Remove the caliper anchor bolts using the ratchet and a socket.8
  8. Remove any retaining rings on the hub of the rotor around the studs. Pry them off with the screwdriver and discard them. You will not need them for reinstallation.
  9. Strike the fin of the rotor on the edge using the ball peen hammer. Spin the rotor and strike it often and from the inside of the tire well moving out. Use as much force as necessary. If the rotor still does not want to come off (rare cases) light up the portable propane torch and apply a liberal amount of heat to the hub of rotor around the lug studs and strike with the hammer to shock it from the hub.0Sand down the hub facing with a medium grade sandpaper or emery cloth once the rotor has been removed and the hub has cooled down if you had to use the torch. Sand down the edges of the hub as well.
  10. Apply a light coat of anti-seize lubricant to the edge of the hub and this will help in the future when the rotor needs to be removed again for whatever reason.
  11. Replace the parts in reverse procedure and repeat the steps for the other side.

2001 dodge caravan rear brake knocking when applying brakes


Sounds like you need some brake service. I would take your pads off and check them replace if necessary, check rotors and replace if needed, check calipers and replace if needed. If this is a drum set check shoes, and drum, and wheel cylinders. Bleed system.

How to replace the rear hatch brake light on a 2001 dodge grand caravan


If you are referring to the Third Brake Light mounted at the top of the rear hatch, then there should be 2 screws on either side of the lense. Remove those two screws and pull the lense off. You can now twist the bulb socket counter-clockwise and remove it from the lense.

How do I install rear brakes and rotors on a 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan


For Disc Brakes...simply use a 7mm allen wrench to remove the 2 bolts from the inside of the caliper and use a large C-clamp to put pressure on the hydrolic piston. The two pads slide right off for replacement. Reverse directions to install new ones.
