Disc brake calipers to my knowledge have no adjustment. they have problems due to improper bleeding, pads wearing out, and stuck components which do not allow pinching and relaxing with pushing and releasing of the pedal. if you are talking about the parking brake, that is a horse of another color.

SOURCE: compressing the rear disc brake caliper on 2008 grand caravan

The rear calipers on these models require a special tool that compresses and turns the piston in at the same time -- most parts stores carry this tool.

It is called a caliper piston press -- and it installs where the pads would go and acts like a c-clamp,when turning handle it will turn the caliper piston backinto the caliper as it compresses it.
Anytime the brake rotor or brake pads are being replaced, the rear caliper piston must be seated (bottomed) to compensate for the new brake rotor or lining. Because the Parking Brake self-adjuster mechanism is attached to the piston, a special seating method is required. The only acceptable method is by rotating the piston back into the bore using Retractor,MILLER Special Tool 8807, . Any other seating method will damage the self-adjuster mechanism.
Good luck and hope this helps.

Trying to change the rear brakes on a 2008 caravan but can not get the e brake cable off so I can remove the caliper


The brake cable does not need to be removed to take off the caliper. The only things that need to be taken out are the two bolts that hold the caliper to its mounting bracket.

Hope this helps!

How do you get the caliper in on the rear of 2008 dodge caravan


You need to compress the caliper piston back into the caliper assembly to allow the new pads to fit over the rotor. A C clamp can be used to compress the caliper piston. Be sure to remove the brake reservoir cap before compressing the piston and remove excess fluid from the reservoir to prevent over filling.

Retract the caliper piston on 2008 rear brakes


You need to retract the parking brake adjuster. Look for a plug on the back of the caliper. It is a seal plug. Don't loose the seal on the plug. Usually there is an allen screw under the plug. back this off to retract the caliper.

Can't get piston to retract on rear brakes


You need a caliper piston tool. Auto zone let me borrow one when I bought my brake pads from them. You use the tool along with your ratchet to turn the mechanism that compresses the caliper piston so that you can get the new pads in. Worked great for me on my 2008 caravan.

Caliper on the rear disc brake will not go in so I can put the new one on how do you release the caliper to go in.


you need a rear caliper piston tool. You can buy one or Auto zone will lend you one if you buy the pads from them. They have a universal tool that will work with several different makes and models. It worked fine on my 2008 Dodge Caravan. You just use your racket and turn the tool to open compress the caliper enough to get the new shoes in. Piece of cake.
