REMOVING CALIPERS

2004 Chrysler Pacifica

Brakes problem
2004 Chrysler Pacifica 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 111478 miles

I can't seem to remove the calipers so that I can replace the fron rotors. I've unscrewed what looks like the two bolts that hold it in place and the caliper seems loose but there is another bracket that goes over the caliper that I cant take off.

Removal (Front)
1. Raise and support vehicle.
2. Remove tire and wheel assembly.
NOTE: In some cases, it may be necessary to retract caliper piston in its
bore a small amount in order to provide sufficient clearance
between shoes and rotor to easily remove caliper from knuckle.
This can usually be accomplished before mounting bolts are
removed, by grasping rear of caliper and pulling outward working
with guide pins, thus retracting piston. Never push on piston
directly as it may get damaged.
3. Remove 2 bolts securing disc brake caliper adapter to steering knuckle. See Fig. 46 .
Remove disc brake caliper and adapter from knuckle as an assembly. See Fig. 46 . Hang
assembly out of way using wire or a bungee cord. Use care not to overextend brake hose when
doing this.
4.
5. Remove clips retaining brake rotor to wheel studs. See Fig. 47 .
6. Remove brake rotor. See Fig. 47 .

Thanks for the help but there were actually four bolts that need removing before the caliper assembly would come off.

Actually there are two to remove the bracket w/caliper still attached, the other two are to separate the cal from the bracket(mount).
