Slide pin lubrication

the calipers are in two sections
one section bolts onto the stub axle with 2 bolts and at the top of that section will be 2 bolts ( shafts) that are bolted to that mounting bracket
those bolts allow the caliper to slide so that the caliper can self center for equal pressure on each disc pad
there is normally a small rubber seal ( accordion shape) between the caliper body and the mounting bracket to keep dirt and water out but these fail and the slide section rusts onto the shafts
removing those bolts will be difficult as they will be rusted the full length of the slide but if you want the brakes to work properly it has to be done

How do i remove rear brake caliper on a 2002

Nothing. On the front disk there are only two bolts that hold the caliper in place. Once they are all the way out it is just a matter of wiggling and pressure to remove the caliper. The rear calipers are also held on with 2 bolts but because of the way the brake line attaches you also have to remove that to remove the caliper.

How to remove fron brake calipers on 1997 dodge grand carivan

That should be all you have to do to remove the caliper. 2 bolts. Sometimes you have to separate the pads from the rotor with a little bar or screwdriver to free up the caliper.

You may have a broken bolt. Once I saw a broken brake caliper bolt and when the brakes were applied the caliper shifted up and ground into the rim just like your seeing...just take the wheel off and investigate its not that hard.

I cannot get the bolts loose that hold the caliper on.

Try an open-ended wrench (on my 2001 Yukon XL on the rear, it was a 5/8") that is just inside the bolt head (bolt retainer) on the caliper -both top and bottom bolt. If you have that same config, the bolt retainer is just spinning when you are turning the bolt head. The wrench will allow you to put leverage on the retainer, and the bolt will come out quickly, as it is a short bolt.

The bolts pull out after being unscrewed Rock the caliper back and forth to release the pads and caliper assy. from the anchor assy. If you are removing the rotors to be cut then you have to remove the larger bolts holding the anchor bracket . TIP the piston on the the LEFT side is turned clockwise to collapse BUT the piston on the RIGHT side is turned COUNTER-CLOCKWISE
