2010 Dodge Grand Caravan spongy brakes after change

It sounds like you still have air somewhere in the system. You always want to start at the furthest wheel from the master cylinder and work to the closest one. So start with the passenger rear and then to the drivers rear, the passenger front and then the drivers front. Make sure to check your fluid level between wheels because if it runs empty while bleeding you will just suck air into the system and have to start over.

Quick release skewer

The end of the quick release that does not have a leaver on it is indeed a nut. You can unscrew that and take the "skewer" all the way out of the bike wheel. I would take my quick release axel out, place the coupler then replace the quick release axel through the bike wheel and then reattach the nut.

I'm trying to change my rear tire , i have put the chain in the smallest cog in the rear, loosened the quick release but the tire doesn't want to come out. Do you have to do something with the...

If the quick release is truly loose, from the rear just lift the bike by the left side of the seatstay (or what would be a seatstay if itwasn't rear suspended) and rotate the rear derailleur backward with your right hand. It should just fall out.

Google "remove rear wheel bicycle" for lots of advice in video form.

How do I remove the rear wheel from my bicycle? I think it has quick release but I don't know.

1. If it has quick release it will have 2 plastic levers one at each side of the wheel axle. Otherwise there will be 2 nuts.

2. If it has the levers, Pull them out from the wheel. This eases the pressure on the nuts holding the wheel on the bicycle. Turn them anti clockwise to loosen them further. The wheel will then come away from the bike frame. (If it doesn't have the quick release levers just loosen the 2 nuts with a spanner)

3. Before taking off the chain draw a diagram or take a photo of how it's setup on the derailleur so you'll know how to put it on again. Pull the derailleur upwards to release the pressure on the chain and you will be able to remove it from the wheel.

4. All that remains then is to pull the wheel out of the brake pads.

I want convert from a regular threaded axel to a quick release pin on the rear wheel. How can I do that?

You will need to replace the old axel with a hollow quick release axel of the same outside diameter and the correct length to fit between the outside of your rear forks with the nuts and washers in place. In other words you will have to rebuild the hub of your rear wheel. It is arguable as to whether it is easier and cheaper to just buy a new wheel with the quick release axle already in it and just switch the cassette over. You will have to make a trip to your local bicycle repair shop for parts anyways so you might as well do a price comparison. Remember you will need bearings nuts washers and a tool to remove your cassette. Ask and they will probably switch the cassette over to the new wheel for you for a nominal fee. I used to charge $5.00 for this if the customer wanted to switch the tire themselves. It was an extra $5.oo to switch the tire.
