Question about 2001 Volvo V70

1 Answer

I've taken off the lug nuts to my driver's side rear wheel and lifted the car on the jack and have the parking break off, but I can't get the wheel off to replace the flat. Is there anything else I need to do like disengage breaks or something? I have a 2001 Volvo V70 wagon 2WD.

Removed lugnuts but a tire will not come off the vehicle . The parking break is off, but the rear wheel will not spin. I turned the ignition on and the parking break light was not on. I lifted the parking...

Your rear wheels are not spinning because they are the drive wheels (they're connected to the transmission). If your car is in park, or any gear you will not be able to spin them unless you're the Hulk.

Your rear wheels are not coming off (probably) because there is corrosion between the wheel and the hub. The easiest way to break it loose is to put the lugnuts back in about 3/4 of the way. Lower the car down so the jack is no longer supporting the car. It may come loose from the weight, or you may need to roll the car a few feet, that usually does the trick. Alternatively, while the car is jacked up and the lug nuts are off (parking break on, and jack stands secure, hit the wheel on the inside hard with a rubber mallet, sometimes that will work too (be sure you are not under the car when you do this incase it slips off your jack stand).

    Steps to rear brake replacment

    1. Park the Dodge on a flat, level surface and engage the parking brake. Put two wedges of wood in front of your front wheels and two behind them.
    2. Put the jack under the back frame of the car and lift it up until the wheels are off the ground. Slide the two jack stands underneath the car right under the axles, one next to each wheel. Use the jack to lower the car onto the two jack stands.
    3. Loosen the lug nuts with the lug nut wrench, and remove the lug nuts and the two back wheels.
    4. Look for two bolts that are attached to the caliper. Remove them with the adjustable wrench. Lift up the caliper and set it on the axle, taking care not to let it fall and break.
    5. Compress the brake pads which, in turn, will compress the underlying piston. If they won't budge, use a C-clamp to compress them.
    6. Open the spring clips by prying with a screwdriver and take off the pads. And if the pads are stuck you can pry them off with the screwdriver as well.
    7. Rub a little bit of silicone grease onto the back of each new pad and put the pads in the correct position. Put the spring clips back in place to hold the pads in place.
    8. Put the caliper back in place and tighten the bolts.
    9. Reinstall the wheel and tighten the lug nuts. Lift up the car a little with the jack and remove the jack stands. Lower the Dodge all the way to the ground. Retighten the lug nuts.
    10. Lift up the hood and look for the master cylinder's brake fluid container on the driver's side of the car, closest to the driver. Top off the brake fluid, if needed.
    You will need the following
    • 4 wood wedges
    • Lug wrench
    • Floor jack
    • 2 jack stands
    • Adjustable wrench
    • C-clamp (optional)
    • Flathead screwdriver
    • New brake pads
    • Silicone grease

    Replace brake pads on 2007 vw polo

    Park the polo on level ground, turn the engine off and apply the parking brake. Pull the hood release handle and move to the front of the car.

    Lift the hood and remove the master cylinder. Remove one-half of the brake fluid inside the reservoir with a syringe.

    Loosen the lug nuts on the rear wheels with a tire iron. Place the jack beneath the frame at the back of the Volkswagen and lift the back tires off the ground. Rest the rear axles of the Volkswagen on two jack stands. Remove the lug nuts and take the rear wheels off.

    Reach behind the brake caliper to locate the caliper mounting pins. Remove the pins with a 12 mm socket and ratchet. Lift the caliper from the brake rotor and suspend it above the wheel assembly with a bungee cord or wire coat hanger.

    Remove the rear brake pads from the slots in the caliper bridge. Inspect the caliper bridge and rotor for damage and significant wear. Replace the rotor if it is warped or badly scored. Scoring of the rotors can lead to break failure and will prematurely wear the new brake pads. Place new brake pads into the slots of the caliper bridge.

    Attach the piston depression tool to the caliper. The tool will fit over the back side of the caliper and against the piston inside. Twist the tool's handle to force the piston into the side of the rear caliper. Remove the tool once the caliper piston is totally depressed within the caliper.

    Replace the caliper onto the caliper bridge and screw in the caliber mounting pens by hand. Replace the rear wheel onto the wheel bolt and screw on the lug nuts.

    Repeat the process for the other side of the rear of the polo. Lift the rear end of the vehicle with the jack and remove the jack stands. Lower the rear tires to the ground and tighten the lug nuts with a lug wrench.

    Return to the engine compartment. Remove the master cylinder cap and check the level of brake fluid. Place a funnel into the container and fill the reservoir with brake fluid as needed.

    How do you take the rear wheels off of the 2004 dodge ram 1500

    hi, if just taking the rear wheels off the vehicle, you will need a hydraulic jack, or vehicle lift of some kind, jack stands to place under the vehicle if you are using the hydraulic jack. You will also need either a 4 way tire iron, or some combination of a 7/8 in socket and a 1/2 in drive breaker bar, the socket needs to be 1/2 in drive as well. this tools maybe rented from local auto parts stores if you do not have availible. now, the lug nuts(the nuts holding the wheels on) may not be 7/8 inch size, depending on the rim package you have, there will be only five of course though. before you jack up the vehicle, you must break the lug nuts loose. take either the 4-way tire iron, or the breaker bar and use a lot of force and turn counter clockwise with the wheels on the ground, and the vehicle in park, with the parking brake on. break all five lug nuts loose(able to turn easily, by hand if desired) on both sides. then you must locate the vehicle frame underneath, and use the jack on the frame point only, never on the axleshaft or body part, and jack up one side of the vehicle until the wheel hangs freely, and place a jackstand next to the hydrualic jack close to touching the frame. lower the vehicle onto the jackstand and make sure the wheel will hang freely. repeat on the other side until both sides, wheels are hanging freely. then remove the lug nuts with either the tire iron, socket and breaker bar, or by hand. once all lug nuts are reomved, pull the wheels off. that should just about do it, hope i didn't leave anthing out, if putting back on, reverse steps, but hand tighten clockwise until tight against the studs, then lower the vehicle down and tighen each lug nut in a star fashion. make sure to tighten very well, you don't want the rims to fall off while driving. good luck.

    How do I remove the brake drums

    How to Replace a Brake Drum
    (DIY Complexity: Moderate / Time: 2.1 hours)

    1. Brake Drum

    1. Jack Stand Set
    2. Mallet Hammer
    3. Flat Head Screwdriver
    4. Floor Jack
    5. Combination Wrench Set
    6. 3/8 in. Drive Ratchet
    7. Tire Iron
    8. Socket Set

    1. Brake Cleaner

    Step 1 Secure the vehicle on a level surface, making sure the vehicle will not roll or lean when jacked up.
    o Tip: Safety Tip:Always wear safety glasses when working on your vehicle. Wear other personal protective equipment (PPE) when necessary, for example latex gloves or safety shoes.

    Step 2 Remove the rear wheel hub caps (if necessary) to gain access to the lug nuts. Using a tire iron or lug nut wrench, break loose the rear wheel lug nuts but do not remove.
    o Tip: Turn the lug nuts counter clockwise to loosen. If the lug nuts are too tight, use a breaker to gain more leverage.

    Step 3 Using a floor jack, lift up the rear of the vehicle.
    o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.

    Step 4 Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. The pinch welds or the frame rails are the two best locations. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working.
    o Tip: Try to find a flat, level, and strong surface to put the jack stands.

    Step 5 Remove the lug nuts. Remove the rear wheels.

    Step 6 Remove the brake drum by pulling it outwards.
    o Tip: Make sure the parking brake is released before removing the brake drum.

    Step 7 Visually inspect the brake drum for cracking, scoring or grooving. If any of these conditions are found, the brake drum will need to be resurfaced or replaced.

    Step 8 Visually inspect the brake shoe linings and drum brake components for damage or wear.

    Step 9 Replace worn components if necessary.

    Step 10 Install the new or resurfaced brake drum.

    Step 11 Reinstall the wheel. Torque the lug nuts to the manufacturer’s specification.

    Step 12 Remove the rubber grommet from the backing plate. Insert a screw driver into the slot and turn the star wheel adjuster to adjust the brake shoes out.
    o Tip: Turn the star wheel adjuster until you feel a slight drag while spinning the wheel.

    Step 13 Road test the vehicle.

    Hope this help.

    o Tip: Using an aftermarket floor jack, instead of the original equipment (OE) jack, can make the job easier and safer. Verify the condition of the floor jack before use.

    o Tip: Lug nuts fasten the wheel to the hub and may be on very tight. To gain more leverage, use a breaker bar to loosen the nuts.

    Step 3 * Secure the vehicle with jack stands on both sides for safety before starting any work. Do not rely on the jack to hold the vehicle up while working.

    Step 4 * Remove the lug nuts. Remove the wheels.
    o Tip: Make sure the parking brake is released before removing the brake drum.

    Step 6 * Clean the brake assembly using a“wet wipe method”. This method uses a spray bottle with water and detergent. Do not use compressed air to clean the brakes. Inspect the brake shoes for wear or damage.
    o Tip: It is a good idea to leave one side assembled to use as a reference while you work on the other side.

    Step 7 * Remove the primary and secondary brake shoe return springs from the anchor pin and brake shoes.
    o Tip: The primary spring is connected to the front (primary) brake shoe and the secondary spring is connected to the rear (secondary) brake shoe.

    o Tip: Specialty brake tools are available to make brake shoe removal easier; but it is possible to remove the brake components with pliers.
    o Tip: While you have the drum brake assembly apart, pry the outer seal away from the wheel cylinder and check for leaking brake fluid. If any brake fluid is leaking, replace or rebuild the wheel cylinder

    Step 11 * Apply white lithium grease to the backing plate contact points.

    Step 12 * Install the new brake shoes in the reverse order of removal. Be careful to keep the new brake shoes clean.

    Step 13 * Inspect the brake drum and resurface or replace if necessary. Install the brake drum and adjust the brake shoes.
    o Tip: There is a slot on the back of the backing plate usually blocked with a rubber grommet. To adjust the brakes, insert a screw driver into the slot and turn the star wheel adjuster. Spin the brake drum and stop adjusting when you feel a slight drag.

    Step 14 * Install the wheels. Torque lug nuts to manufacturer’s specifications.

    Step 15 * Lower vehicle and test drive to verify repairs.
