The problem isn't at your brake calipers. Your rotors have a slight warp to them causing your vibration when you stop.

have you replaced the front and rear brake pads (for older vehicles, rear wheels use brake shoes instead of brake pads). if yes, check your calipers. completely remove it from your tire and have it cleaned.
if the problem still persists, then its time to replace your hydrovac

Changed pads and rotors on the front end, and now the pedal basically goes to the floor. It's a 2007 Dodge Caravan SE, and the rotors, calipers, piston covers, bracket, and the pads are all dry rotted,...


try holding the brake pedal down overnight with a broom jammed into the seat ?? if that doiesnt work then bleed the brakes and if still no joy then ask a local mechanic to diagnose for you before you spend a fortune on unecessary parts

How do i replace front drivers side brake caliper?


Jack the van up, remove the tire. Then you will see the caliper. There will be 2 bolts that hold it on to the rotor. Remove the bolts and pry it off with a screw driver or what ever works. Then disconnect the break line from the caliper. After you get the new one use a c-clamp to press the piston down into the caliper and install the brake pads. Bolt the caliper back into place and install the line. Loosen up the bleed valve on the caliper 1/2 turn and have someone pump the breaks until no air bubbles come out. Once you have a smooth stream of brake fluid coming out the valve have that person pump once more and hold the pedal all the way to the floor. Then tighten the valve.

Sqeeze front branke on 2003 dodge caravan


I assume you need to know how to compress the piston into the brake caliper. With the caliper mounted on the spindle, open the bleed screw slightly then gently press against the brake pad to compress the piston. Close the bleed screw. Once you have the caliper removed from the vehicle, open the bleed screw and compress the piston the rest of the way using a piston compressor or channel-locks. Close the bleed screw when you are finished.
