Let's jack the car up, remove the tires. Place a couple of jack stands under the vehicle (safety first, please). Now its time to remove the calipers. Take a flat tip screwdriver, and gently pry back the front pad( enough to loosen it from the rotor). There will be several bolts holding the caliper to the hub(on the backside). you have to remove those( a ratchet and socket(you can get the socket for your car at any auto parts store)will make it easier) and slide the caliper off the rotor. just put the caliper on the A-frame. The rotor should just pull off. If not, some have screws that hold the rotor in place. Just undo those screws, and off it comes. To install, just reverse the order. While you have the brakes down, check to see if you need new pads. If you do, you can compress the piston on the caliper by using a C-clamp and tightening down on the pad with the pad in place( this will bring the piston back to the housing for new pads. When rotor and pads are reinstalled, just pump the brakes a couple of times to tighten the pads. Now check the brake fluid, to see if you need any. Takes about an hour for this job(both sides). Hope this helps

No. It is only held on by the lug nuts. If it is stuck you may need to hit it with a rubber mallet, or use a block of wood and regular hammer.

How do you pull the rotor off a 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan?


I am pretty sure you are trying to remove the rear rotor, correct?

The rear rotor also has the e-brake shoes that are on the back side. The rotor is hung up on the shoes of the e-brake. Try tapping the side of the hat of the rotor with a hammer while you pull. this will often release the grip that the ebrake shoes have on the hat of the rotor.

How do I install rear brakes and rotors on a 2004 Dodge Grand Caravan


For Disc Brakes...simply use a 7mm allen wrench to remove the 2 bolts from the inside of the caliper and use a large C-clamp to put pressure on the hydrolic piston. The two pads slide right off for replacement. Reverse directions to install new ones.
