How to Rebuild a Brake Caliper in a Chrysler Sebring

    • 1). Slide a car jack underneath the frame rail of your Sebring. The jack should be slightly off-center, closer to the wheel you are carrying out the work on. Raise the vehicle off the ground. Move a jack stand underneath the frame of the vehicle next to the car jack. Lower the vehicle so that the Sebring is supported by the jack stand.

    • 2). Loosen and remove the lug bolts on the wheel with a lug wrench. Pull the wheel off the axle and move set it aside.

    • 3). Use a socket wrench to remove the bolts that connect the brake caliper to its bracket. Lift the caliper out of the bracket.

    • 4). Remove the bolt that connects the brake caliper to the brake line and place the open end of the line into a clear container to collect the brake fluid. Carefully separate the brake caliper into its two halves.

    • 5). Disconnect the wiring from one of the brake pads then pull both brake pads away from the caliper. Use a flat head screwdriver to remove the dust boots from the caliper.

    • 6). Use a dry cloth and brake cleaner to clean all of the surfaces of the brake caliper. Use an emery cloth to clean away any scratches. Place a new seal onto the piston. Place the seal onto the piston groove and turn the seal in a clockwise direction to attach it to the piston.

    • 7). Place the brake caliper back into its bracket and secure in place with the bolts. Reconnect the brake line. Remount the wheel back onto the Sebring and tighten the lug nuts with the lug nut wrench. Raise the vehicle off the jack stand with the jack then lower it to the ground.

    • 8). Repeat Steps 1 through 7 for the rest of the calipers.

    • 9). Drain the brake fluid from all of the brakes. Locate the brake fluid reservoir underneath the hood. Remove the cap and use a syringe or siphon kit to remove the brake fluid from the reservoir. Pour new brake fluid into the reservoir and reattach the cap. Pump the brake pedal several times to circulate the brake fluid through the brake lines.
