The front calipers simply push in, the rear can be push in or screw in. The way to tell is to look at the piston flat surface that contacts the pad. If it has a slot, or two notches across from each other, or two holes on the edges across from each other, then they screw in while applying light squeezing pressure (there is a special tool for this). If they are flat where the pad touches the piston they simply press in.

When you change the brake pads front and rear on a 2007 dodge charger do you push the brake calipor in or do you have to push and turn the calipor in at the same time

On the front calipers, you just push the piston back into the caliper assembly, taking care to clean the dust boot off first. I would also be watching the fluid level in the master cylinder so it doesn't "overflow". Your rear wheels have whats called "drum in hat" style. Your parking brake is a pair of shoes that are in the rotor, so your pads are like the fronts, just push the piston back into the caliper after cleaning the dust seal.

If it is hard to push back the caliper drum, open the bleeder nipple and use a FLAT SCREW DRiVER, insert it i the between the pad and drum. use screw driver as lever to push back the caliper drum!
Hope that helps u!

In my experience with the 2.7L engine, the spark plugs are located on the top of the engine below the individual ignition coils. The coils are placed between the intake manifold and the valve covers, 3 per side. The coils are held in with "torx" screws. Simply remove the screws, and disconnect the connectors to remove the coils. The spark plugs will be underneath. Be sure to properly gap the spark plugs for maximum life and emissions compliance. Also, an improperly gapped plug can shorten the life of the coil packs.
Hope this helps!

2006 dodge ram 2500 4x4 diesel replace brake pads front and back

Straight forward job. Remove wheels, remove 2 caliper bolts per wheel, check bolts,and bushings for wear/corrosion and lubricate, remove calipers, remove brake pads, push caliper pistons into calipers, replace anti-rattle clips, put new pads in, put caliper and bolts in, put wheels on. Start truck and press brake pedal several times to take up slack and you're done.

How to change rear brakes on a 2006 uplander how to push caliper back in?

Some of these calipers do not have the ability to be pushed back in with a c-clamp or even a GM caliper tool....there is however, a small diamond shaped piece of metal on the caliper (Caliper reset tool) that allows you to wind the piston back in,,,,I just went through the same thing
