Question about 2007 Chrysler Town & Country LX New Cars
Well you can please follow the below steps -
1. Remove the two caliper guide pin bolts. Rotate the top part of the caliper away from side of the brake rotor and secure it to the frame of the Town & Country with mechanical wire. Pry the outboard brake pad out of the caliper.
2. Compress the piston into the bore with a large C-clamp to prevent damage to it when removing the inboard brake pads. Pull the inboard brake pad away from the piston until the retainer clip pops free of the piston cavity.
3. Grease the caliper mating surface and the abutment surfaces with a brake grease. Cover the back of the new inboard and outboard brake pads with an anti-squeal lubricant. Install the new inboard brake pads followed by the outboard brake pads.
4. Lower the caliper back into position over the rotor. Install the guide pin bolts and torque to 17 foot/pound. Replace the wheels and torque the lug nuts to 100 foot/pound. Please post comments for further help or information.........

The pistons on the rear brake calipers SCREW in to the caliper. There are notches on the inner edge of the piston face. engage the notches with a large needle nose plier or a large flat washer and turn clockwise (as you face the piston) to turn the piston in.
There is a special tool that is available at your local autoparts store that is absolutely necessary and will save you a ton of time and aggravation. Using a needle nose plier or washer does not allow you to apply enough pressure unless your are the incredible hulk.

remove the caliper bolt, swivel the caliper up and slide off the rod. To push the caliper piston in to accommodate the new pads, you must get the tool to TWIST the piston in while slightly pressing the piston. Check with your local Murrays, Auto Zone for the tool loaner program. Gm W-Body rear caliper tool. Good luck

If you have the parking brake system located in the center of the rotor, (the parking brake cable goes inside the "hub" area, and not to the caliper) you have the internal parking brake shoes. The problem is that the drum part gets a rust lip built up and it's very difficult to pull off the rotor because it hangs up. Usually forcing it off stresses some of the hardware inside, but there is not much of an option.
