Question about 2008 Chrysler Town & Country
Rear pads should need no adjustment assuming by pads you mean it's equipped with rear disc brakes! Just get in when reassembled with the engine off, pump the brake pedal until you have ample pressure, start the van, repeat the process, then test the brakes during a very short distance to confirm operation. Once convinced proper pressure has been applied, test drive to verify operation.

you have to fitt the caliper realy tight to get a good hand brake..remove the caliper..With pads in place. Press the brake to push out the piston.Only a little.Then replace the caliper with it realy tight onto pads.Then work the handbrake up and down a few times then you should be ok.Dont worrie about the brake being a bit tight.Just take it for a short run then.It will losen up.The handbrake is self adjusting.

Hi, use a "C" clamp large enough to reach over caliper and piston and use old pad between clamp and piston for pressure distribution , once it moves it should be easy, watch for fluid backing out of reservoir.
