There is no clip, you may just have to hit the rotor hard with a hammer to losen it off the hub because it is rusted on

How to replace front brake pads?

For most cars it is very simple process, pull wheel, look for caliper bolts, usually two, loosen, remove, wiggle caliber to pull out and away from rotor, remove pad clips to release, slide out pads, noting position so you install new ones the same way, inside pad and outside pad, apply pressure to spread pads apart to fit on rotor, some pistons will remain open, some will close a bit and rotor will not fit, so applying pressure to retract pistons is usually required, I use flat prybar using two putty knife blades not to damage pads, once you have pads retracted, act fast and slide over rotor and position and insert bolts, pay attention to torque specifications on bolts for calipers. You can usually find videos on YouTube which help if needed. Good luck.

Town & country 2008 shaking when pressing the brakes

This could be bad rotors or bad bearings. Check to see what a brake shop would charge you to get them done. Then go to an autoparts store and see what new rotors cost. They are easy to change and you can then decide. If you want to know if the rotors are WARPED, you use a dial indicator to check them.

How to replace rear brake pads on 2002 buick rendevous

Those are special calipers. The piston cannot be just compressed back into the caliper - it needs to be turned as it is compressed or you can ruin the caliper.There is a kit you can rent from AutoZone or many independent auto parts stores that will perform both functions at the same time.
Block fron wheels and raise vehicle passenger side. Remove wheel. The caliper is on the top rear side of the assembly you're looking at.There are 2 long bolts you'll need to remove to take the caliper off the vehicle. Don't remove the brake line or open the bleeder screw ( either of these moves will add to your work!! ) Insert a large flat blade screwdriver in between the rotor and outboard brake pad and pry away from the vehicle slightly to release the pads from the rotor. Slide caliper upwards and towards the back of the vehicle to separate from rotor. The pads will come in a full set ( all 4 pads for both side of the rear ) . Look at your replacement pads and determine if they have a retainer clip holding them in place or a compression clip. Remove outboard pad first then inboard. Match old pads to replacement pads. Inspect rotor for grooves and irregular surfaces - if any grooves or irregularity present, remove rotor and take to an auto parts store for refinishing.Compress caliper piston with kit and allow 5 minutes for pressure to bleed back into the master cylinder.install rotor if removed and wipe surfaces with brake clean. Install inboard then outboard pad and place caliper on rotor, then mount to vehicle. Install wheel, repeat procedure for drivers side, then PUMP BRAKE PEDAL 5 TIMES BEFORE TRYING TO DRIVE VEHICLE to set pads on rotors.

Changing the rotar on the 93 plymouth sundance

The rotor should just be pushed on or possibly have a clip in the side or maybe a screw on the side to keep it down. I have never had to do anything other than pull up on the rotor to remove them. Look at the replacement rotor you have. If there is a clip on it examine how it releases. It is most likely not a clip but the rotor is just stuck on a pressure clip kind of like the one used on spark plug cables. If you see no screws or pins going through the old rotor that is mounted it is most likely a push on with key way. As a last resort, go to the local Auto parts store and find the Haynes repair manual for your vehicle and look at the tune up section. Most stores won't have any issue with this since they know you will most likely at least purchase the parts from them if not the book.

Rear brakes (driver-side) squeal after replacing rotors and pads

you need to grease the metal clips at the top and bottom of the pads (dont get grease on the rotor or pad though) and also spray some "disc brake quiet" on the back of the pads. it comes in a red can and the spray that comes out is like sticky red paint. do those 2 things and the squeals will be gone.

Take off the wheel, remove the brake caliper (2 bolts on the back), then the rotor just slides off, the wheel studs are part of the hub assembly not the rotor.

Brake rotors

Are there small retainer clips on the studs still? More than likely its just rust built up on the center hub. Take some sand paper to the center hub, as long as e-brake is released and caliper is off, it will come off. I'm not familar with the toyota sienna's but if they have internal drum e-brakes, I would back off the adjuster if they do.
