Question about 2004 Dodge Caravan
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
