How do you replace the front brakes on an 02 Montana?

My front breaks need to be replaced.

Remove caliper bolts and lift caliper off of the disc. Remove old pads, compress caliper piston. Slide in new pads. Put caliper back on disc, aligning bolt holes. Replace bolts.

You'll need to decide if you want to replace the rotors too, if they've been on the car for 50,000 miles, you'll need to. In this case you'll need to remove the caliper and the caliper brace, and you may need a breaker bar.

I wouldn't personally replace the brakes on an 02 Montana because I don't have the experience nor the knowledge. I would however call the nearest repair centers (which usually employ experts or at least mechanics with some knowledge)for the best quality of service vs. price points and make an informed decision from there.

Loosen and remove the two bolts that hold caliper to front wheel. Slide the assembly up off the brake rotor. You will need a clamp to push the piston back.
