This is a walk through for a 1993 2wd.
1. Jack up and remove tire
2. Remove 2 brake caliper mounting bolts
3. Remove caliper and hang out of way with wire
4. Remove rotor, if stuck hit on all sides with a rubber mallet until it breaks loose.
5. Install new rotor
6. Remove old pads from caliper
7. Using a c-clamp and a block of wood against caliper piston, compress piston until it is flush w/caliper
8. Install new pads in same location as old pads
9. Reinstall caliper, may have to nudge it into place with rubber mallet
10. Reinstall tire.
note: There are no bearings to grease. You must replace the entire hub assembly if yours are worn.

take off tires. two 14mm bolts behind the caliper. loosen the bottom 1. tilt the caliper up. slide caliper inward of the car, let caliper hang. two 17mm bolts behind the bracket take it off. and rotors should slide out. if rotor seized spray WD40 and hammer the rotor. careful don't hammer the stud it will screw up the thread.

SOURCE: location of cabin air filter
It can have a cabin air filter, but most vehicles ship without it.
Either way, you can access the cabin air filter housing by opening the glove box all the way (squeeze the sides so it clears the stops).
The filters are around $15 at the dealer.
Whether or not there's a cabin filter installed, make sure you're also following Chrysler's recommendations in the owner's manual—running the air on recirculate all the time will encourage mold and bacteria to grow.

take your pads back off take the backing plate off load a bunch of anti sqeek between the pad and plate then the plate and caliper should solve your problem unless its your coposition off your pads some grades of semi metallic pads just sqeek.
