Check the sliding hardware that the caliper bolts too. A glide pin could be seized.

If the caliper can't slide it can jam a pad against the rotor causing noise, heat and warped rotors.

I replaced the brake pads on my 2008 Town and country and now my wheels have a huming noise. The brakes work very good with no pulling

There are a few solutions to this problem , the first thing i would do is check that the backing plate or dust sheild has not bent in to the rotor ,next check that all the bolts are secure...did you change just the pads or the rotors as well ,sometimes if you only change the pads it wil take some time for the new pads to seat properly although i have never had it described as a humming noise this may also be the case

I replaced the rear pads and rotors.I screwed the pistons all the way in to get the pads on. Now I have a soft pedal and was told I needed to adjust the piston back out a little bit but I cant figure how...

soft pedal usually indicates air in the system. when you put it all back together and applied the brakes did you check to see if the brake fluid in the master cylinder was topped up with brake fluid ?. it would appear that the system needs to be bled. check for leaks as well and it is possible you may have damaged the pistons in the calipers when you pushed them in to make room for the pads.

How do you compress the caliper on a 2008 town & Country?

2008 Chrysler Town and Country
Replacing the Rear Brake Pads

Process is typical except for the rotating (screw type) brake piston. You cannot just compress the brake piston with a C-clamp, you have to turn the piston back in. This is easily done with the correct tool (Rear Disc Brake Piston Tool). The tool I had needed to be slightly modified to fit Chrysler's pattern.

Most Auto Parts store like Auto Zone and Parts Source will have the tools for lone or you can buy the tool and keep it in your tool box and the price ranges from $12.00 to $50.00 depending on the brake tool as to universal or specific to the vehicle make. Good luck and keep me posted.

How do i compress the caliper piston on rear brakes on 2008 town and country

you should have to turn in the caliper piston there is a special tool for this looks like a cube and has different notches on it for different cars,you can get it at like autozone for cheap $5 or less,,but you attach it to the extension and then a ratchet and turn the caliper in,,,,you ccan try to use a needle nose pliers to turn it in but thats not always easy,,turn it clockwise til it stops,,it will almost be flush with the housing
