The rear is unlike the front, rather than removing 2 large hex nuts, on the rear you remove the guide pin bolts and the removal is relatively easy. You can will use a 7mm ellen wrench to remove the pins. Before removing caliper, look at how the spring on the outer pad is positioned on the caliper.

One other note (that will save you 5 mins) when putting on the new pads into the caliper, snap the inside pad into place first. You the outside one then had to take it back off because there was not much clearance and You did not want to damage the inside pad.

Check this graphic as reference guide.


(2) Remove rear wheel and tire assemblies from vehicle.
(3) Remove the caliper to adapter guide pin bolts.
(4) Remove rear caliper from adapter using the following procedure. First rotate front of caliper up from the adapter. Then pull the rear of the caliper and the outboard brake shoe anti-rattle clip out from under the rear abutment on the adapter.
(5) Support caliper to prevent the weight of the caliper from damaging the flexible brake hose.
(6) If the brake rotor needs to be removed it can be removed by removing the retainer clips and then pulling the rotor straight off the wheel mounting studs.
(7) Remove the outboard brake shoe from the caliper. Brake shoe is removed by pushing the shoe toward the piston, disengaging the two metal protrusions on the shoe back, then sliding the brake shoe off the caliper.
(8) Remove inboard brake shoe from caliper. Inboard brake shoe is removed by pulling it out of the caliper piston, until the retaining clip is free of the piston.

Hope this help.

2009 town and country rear brake caliper special tools?

The piston will not compress, it is self adjusting and you have to screw it back in to allow for the new pads. There is a special tool that fits the cut outs on the piston so that you can screw it in. I used a pair slip joint plairs to turn the piston.

2008 town and country,..rear driver side brakes heating up making loud hum noise,..just replaced caliper and still doing it, what do i do???

Check the sliding hardware that the caliper bolts too. A glide pin could be seized.

If the caliper can't slide it can jam a pad against the rotor causing noise, heat and warped rotors.

How do you compress the caliper on a 2008 town & Country?

2008 Chrysler Town and Country
Replacing the Rear Brake Pads

Process is typical except for the rotating (screw type) brake piston. You cannot just compress the brake piston with a C-clamp, you have to turn the piston back in. This is easily done with the correct tool (Rear Disc Brake Piston Tool). The tool I had needed to be slightly modified to fit Chrysler's pattern.

Most Auto Parts store like Auto Zone and Parts Source will have the tools for lone or you can buy the tool and keep it in your tool box and the price ranges from $12.00 to $50.00 depending on the brake tool as to universal or specific to the vehicle make. Good luck and keep me posted.

What tool do I need to remove the caliper guide pin bolt on a 2004 town and country?

I just finished doing the rears on my 2005 T&C. The caliper pins need to be removed with a 7mm allen wrench. I used an allen socket for a 3/8" ratchet, which was much easier than using my wrenches. These pins are threaded and cannot be "tapped" out as said by someone else.

When you replace them, make sure you have some high temp grease to put on them and check the pin rubber boots to make sure that they are not cracked or damaged. Good luck!.

How do you get the calipers off the rear?

Firstly you need to remove the park brake cables from the calipers. undo the bolts that hold the caliper to the hub assembly. lift the caliper away and yes you can buy new studs and nuts/bolts but you may need to go to a main chrysler agent to get them
