brake change

Does anyone know of a site that I can actually get a free diagram on how to change my brake pads for a 2002 dodge caravan?

craig_3,

If you have a digital or polaroid camera, take a picture.

If not, do one side at a time that way you have a "reference" to go by.

pagerboy,

Brakes are not something to "CHEAP OUT" on. You don't always have to buy OEM (except in some Ford cases 'cause they seem to "like" OEM better), but a good "middle of the road" product from some place like NAPA should work fine.

I'm not cheaping out. I'm asking what is a good price to see if that pans out with what the dealer told me.

It all depends on what the brake job consists of.

Front - replace pads/turn rotors - about $125-150 at dealer. Replacing the rotors and/or calipers will add extra $. Varies from dealer to dealer.

Rear - replace shoes/pads, turn drums/rotors - the same. Replacement parts will be extra. Also varies.

You should reasearch your links before you post them, the <A HREF="http://napa.com">napa.com</A> is for computer stuff. The actual link for <a href="http://www.napaonline.com">Napa</a>.
