Loosen wheel lug nuts, jack up and support vehicle, finish removing wheel. Using a 13mm wrench, loosen the two caliper to pin bolts on the back of the caliper. This will release the caliper. Using a screwdriver, pry the caliper up and away from the bracket, the caliper should slide off the brake pads and be free from the bracket.

Wire the caliper up and out of the way.

Remove the pads.

Using the special ford tool, place it on the caliper piston and turn the caliper piston back into the bore with a rachet and extention until it is seated all the way (turn clockwise). The ford tool fits into the notches on the caliper piston.

Slide new pads into the caliper bracket, slide the caliper over the new pads and rotor, reattach the 13mm bolts and torque to 25lb/ft.

If removing/replacing the rotor, remove the caliper and pads as outlined above, then continue by removing the caliper support bracket using a 15mm wrench on the two bolts holding it to the hub assembly. Remove the caliper bracket, then the rotor should come off. It may require a few taps with a rubber mallet to loosen.

When reinstalling the caliper support bracket, torque the 15mm bolts to approx. 90 lb/ft.

When reinstalling the wheel, torque lug nuts to approx 95 lb/ft

Lift the car with a car jack, remove the tire, remove the brake shoe/calipers, and remove the old brake pads. Next, put in the new brake pads, replace the brake shoe/calipers, replace the tire and lower the car to the ground.

It is possible for the brakes to lock up on a 2000 Chevy Venture when in reverse because the brakes are not working properly. Perhaps the brake pads need to be changed.

It's hard to give you a straight answer for this question. What I can tell you is it all depends on the condition of your Brakes. It can cost you any where from $600+ up to $1300. I got mine done and it cost me $700, these are the repair that was done: replace front rotors, sensors, calipers, and brake pads( front only) and the rear replace pads, caliper and re-surface the rotors. (2000 clk 320) hope this gives you an idea on it cost for a brake job.

There could be an issue with the anti lock brakes if it equipped with them. It could also be that the brake fluid is low or the switch for the emergency brake is broken.
