Ok, i'm assuming your replacing them, there is an oval rubber stopper on the backside of the rotor, in the backing plate, located near the bottom. it will tighten or loosen the e-brake shoes inside the rotor, loosen them all the way off, then get a big hammer and give them a really good smack, be carefull not to damage the wheel studs, if your reusing them hit on the hat of the rotor, if replacing you can hit right on the rotor face.
Use some antiseize on the hub before installin your new rotors, and don't forget to readjust your
e-brake and reinstall the rubber plug

Open the tailgate and on either side you'll see 2 screws holding the tail light assembly. Unscrew these and the assembly will come off. It might take a little prying if it has never been removed before. Each bulb is in a base attached to the assembly from the back. Turn the base 1/4 turn and pull out to get access to the bulb itself.

I work for a brake repair shop and trust me you are not alone.Enterprise and alot of other people bought the same van and had the same trouble.I hate to say but it doesnt stop there.About every 14 to 15 thousand miles you have to replace the front pads.As of now they dont have an upgrade,for instance ceramic pads, but I am sure they will very soon

SOURCE: 2006 town and country rear brake rotor removal

yes the e brake shoes inside the rotor tend to create a lip that will hang them up just bake them off a bit and you should be able to pull them off fairly easily also check to be sure that the stock assembly line retainer clips have been removed from the front of the rotor they are just thin looking washers that are pushed on to the lug nut studs to hold the rotor in place on the assembly line a pair of side head cutters work well to remove them and discard after removed.
Hope this helps.

Back rotors for chrysler 2006 T&C I cannot get them to come off I have removed the calipers - factory clip on front still will not budge


Reconize that the parking brake is on the inside of the rotor and if the parking brake is on the rotor won't turn or come off. You did take the cap in the center of the rotor off and remove the cotter pin and the nut and bearing, just like the front wheels on the old cars that were rear wheel drive, didn't you?

The automatic (vacuum) release-type is standard equipment on all vehicles. The automatic vacuum-type parking brake system contains the following features:
  • A parking brake release control motor (2A843) with mounting bracket bolted to the parking brake control .
  • The vacuum-actuated diaphragm within the parking brake release control motor which is connected by a rod to the upper end of the parking brake release vacuum hose (2B653) .
  • The parking brake release vacuum hose which connects the parking brake release control motor to the engine manifold through a vacuum release switch at the steering column tube (3514) .
  • The parking brake release control motor which is actuated to release the parking brake whenever the engine is running and the transmission is in a forward-driving gear.
  • The automatic parking brake control which has a manual release feature that releases the foot parking brake control by applying force to the parking brake control pedal in the "apply" direction to the point of initial application.
  • The parking brake control will return to the full-release position after removing the force.

  1. Raise vehicle.
  2. Fully back off cable tensioner adjusting nut at equalizer to create slack in cables.

Rear brakes


I changed the rear pads this fall, have you removed the caliper retaining bolts and the Park Brake Cable? I remember the cable being a pain and using a large hammer and pry bar to loosen the caliper. You can pry on the edge of the pad and the hat section of the rotor. The rear rotors aren't expensive and should be done at the same time.
