Rear Rotor Removal
 
I have a 2007 1500 4X4. I replaced the front rotors and pads with no problems. The rear rotors are another issue. I can't get the rear rotors off. There is supposedly a rear rotor retaining clip. I have no idea where this clip is at. Can someone tell me where it's at and how to remove it or if I'm on the wrong path. I have the truck up on jacks now so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Mike

Let me guess...they are loose but won't come off the hub? The clip you refer to is the thin metal clip on the stud that is there to hold the rotor on the hub during vehicle assembly. Your problem is most likely a rust ridge built up on the inside of the rotor hat section and the parking brake shoes are hanging up on them. The only way to get them off is to work them back and forth with a deadblow hammer.
