Push the bolt completely out of the caliper and clean it well, then put some special lube the have in a little tear open pack and coat the sliding parts. I used to use never seize but was told this stuff is silicon based and won't swell up the rubber like never-seize might.
You probably did not lubricate the calipers when you changed them and they are sticking. Or its entirely possible that the rotors are too thin. Always clean and lubricate the brake assembly before reassembly.
Brake calipers are the hydraulic devices that wrap around the rotors and pinch the brake pads into the rotors when you stop.
NO! Brake Calipers are what compress your Brake Pads on to the rotor which turn simeultaniously with your wheels.
F1 brake calipers are made of aluminium.Here is quotation from the Technical rules:11.2 Brake calipers:11.2.1 All brake calipers must be made from aluminium materials with a modulus of elasticity no greater than 80Gpa.
You probably have a warped brake rotor. New rotors are fairly inexpensive, I would replace both front rotors and brake pads while your in there. The calipers and sliders along with the brake hoses and lines need to be examined also.
Brake calipers are what house the brake pads and fit over the rotor. If you are working on the brakes, usually the calipers need to be taken off in order to work.
Calipers frozen? Calipers frozen?
With the help from your foot and the master cylinder, the calipers provide the squeeze to the disc brake pads to the rotor.
front or rear? both are very similar. take the wheels off. loosen and take off the calipers (should be 2 bolts if my memory serves me correctly, the bolts are kinda long. slide the caliper off revealing the brake pads. replace the brake pads and put it all back together. Don't forget to use brake lube on the sliders of the calipers.
Lift the vehicle on a car jack, remove the tire, remove the brake shoe/calipers, and remove the old brake pads. Put in the new brake pads, replace the brake shoe/calipers, replace the calipers, and lower the car.
You can buy a kit to rebuild the calipers. It is simpler and easier to buy rebuilt calipers.
Brake calipers are what squeeze the brake pads against the brake rotor.
No need to rotate the front caliper pistons as you compress the front calipers. That process is only for the rear calipers because of the parking brake mechanism.
No. If your calipers are leaking, they need to be replaced. Calipers leak because they're worn out, or because you didn't change the fluid and it corroded the inside of the piston bore.
The rear brake calipers screw back in. This is because of the park brake. There is a tool that you can either buy or rent from one of the larger parts stores.
Sticking brake calipers. This can be caused by moisture in the brake fluid which will cause the calipers to rust. Replace the calibers and replace all the brake fluid. It can also be caused by driving with your foot on the brake.
Remove wheels Loosen Brake lines to calipers Retract piston into caliper slightly remove mounting bolts (2) Remove brake lines Remove caliper

Yes. The brake calipers are side specific.
The brake calipers can be the same the front calipers on turbo cars is normally bigger as up to 90% of your braking force is on the front brakes but the back ones are somtimes bigger not always
Brake system usually has the following components: 1) brake pedal 2) brake fluid tank 3) brake system hoses 4) calipers 5) rotors 6) pads p.s. If it's a drum brake system - brake drums replace calipers and rotors.
I can only assume that Z0, means Z06. There was not a Z06, in 97. And the brake calipers are the same for the two years.
cailper is bad or brake hose is collasped
The 2003 model has different caliper assembly for the brake system of the vehicle. If your Caravan has drum rear brakes, it uses TRW brake calipers. If you have disc rotors in the rear then the front will have "Continental Teves" calipers (Haynes 9-3).
