Question about 2003 Dodge Intrepid
We are trying to change the rear rotors on a 2005 magnum and are getting resistance when pulling them off. it almost seems to have a spring effect. it is loose but when you pull it pulls back. help!! a mechanic friend suggests hitting them w/a hammer to break it loose. is there anything we need to release? ie. clamp, spring, etc..... We are trying to replace the rear rotors and are not having any luck. We are told that the parking brake has to be released but still no luck releasing it.
The parking brake shouldn't be holding them on unless you have the brake set. Don't hit them with a hammer or you'll damage the parking brake shoes and springs. Check the cables to make sure they aren't rusted or binding. More likely than not this is the case as the shoes have dug into the rotor. If they are, use a screwdriver to press the shoes off the rotor as you or an assistant slides them off.
