Default 06 Ramm 1500 rear disk brakes

Hi all. Hope its ok to post this here. There is no section for brakes so I figured that suspension was close enough.

Anyway, I just wanted to ask about removing a rear rotor. I removed the ring over the lug nut stud but its still on tight and I dont want to force things.

Do I have to do something with the emergency brake?

Thanks.

Dave

I know that after you take off the caliper, do NOT let it hang free, tie it up

YouTube has several videos on this subject

If it's been on for a while, a good whack with a rubber hammer should do the trick. They tend to corrode onto the flange back there.

If it's still stuck, try some penetrating oil.

OK Maddog. I just wanted to make sure it didnt have anything to do with the parking brake. I shall hammer away.

GTyankee - Oh yeah I have the caliper secured.

Thanks guys. I have done countless brake jobs over the years but this is my first on rear disk brakes.

If the parking brake is on, I'd chock the vehicle and release it before proceeding.

They get stuck because the center piece of the axle there tends to get rusty. WD-40 or some other penetrant and a couple swipes with a wire brush wouldn't hurt. Like mentioned, a dead blow hammer or mallet should help persuading them to come off.

Use a little PB Blaster around the center of the hub. Then use a good dead blow hammer on the back side of the rotor. Make sure you hit it all the way around, if you just hit it in one spot it will just get jammed.
