HEY CHECK OUT THIS VIDEO IT HELPED ME OUThttp://automechs.com/video/62/1998-Dodge-Dakota-Brake-Caliper-Replacement- or -

www.AutoMechs.com

This video shows removing the brake hoses, pads, calipers, & repacking the bearings. Awesome video

To do the job right you need to get a haynes manual from the parts store or AutoPartsDirectToYou.com This will help on future repairs.

support the car first so the wheels will not touch the ground (by the frame ) please remove the lug nuts holding the wheels from the front of the car. take wheels off . then remove the 2 bolts holding the front brake caliper to the axle these are the 2 big fat bolts on the inside of the whole thing pointing inward of the car. slide forward the assembly of cylinder and calipers. replace calipers and fasten in the same position.put back everything in the inverse operation good luck

Note: You will probably need a torx bit for your ratchet to remove the 2 bolts that hold the caliper on. Maybe a T45? Yes The video confirms it is a T45 torx bit

To replace the caliper involves disconnecting the brake line, re-connecting it to the new caliper, re-installing everything, and bleeding the brakes.

Another tip: break your lugnuts loose before you jack the truck up. It's much easier than trying to break them loose with the truck jacked up (and the wheel spinning freely).
