Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500
Support the vehicle on Jack Stand. Remove the Tire. Loosen the two retaining bolts on the back of the Caliper, 1 on each end, Disconnect the brake line. Install the new caliper and from there you have two options. 1. Let the Caliper hang free and open the bleed valve on the Caliper with the engine running, when you see fluid start to drip from the Bleed valve close the valve then complete the installation. (Make sure you remove the rubber cap from the bleed valve) 2. (This takes two people) Install the pads in the Caliper then install the Caliper. Make sure the brake fluid is topped off. Start the vehicle and pump the brakes 3 to 4 times then hold the brake pedal down. The person on the outside releases the Bleed valve, in this process the brake pedal will go to the floor, Once the Pedal is all the way down close the valve and repeat the process checking to make sure the Fluid is topped off after each attempt. Repeat the process until only fluid comes out when you open the bleed valve. This usually takes 2 to 3 cycles. Once the air is removed from the caliper and brake line top off the fluid one last time and install the tire.
