SOURCE: dodge ram 2500 4x4 caliper bolts won't come loose

they are usually loctited from the factory,you will have to heaten the bolt,use a small torch,or a good heat gun on the head of the bolt only,be very carefull not to burn the rubbers on the bolts. one of the small solder torches works well,it takes a few minutes each bolt,but you woon't burn the rubbers.

SOURCE: Changed pads and rotors on the front end, and now

It may be the caliper, but if you opened the bleeders or lines then the system need bleeding, also you may want to replace the hoses and calipers if they were badly dry rotted as you wouldnt want to loose your brakes while driving.

I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 that Upon breaking begins to vibrate and kinda bounce plus it wants to pull to he right away from the side that vibrates. Any ideas. The vibrating and shaking begins about one...

You need to have the front rotors turned or replaced. Take a set of dial calipers and measure the rotor thickness. compare that to the specs on the rotor and that will let you know if you can turn them. Put new pads on and make sure to lube the slider pins.

Front right tire makes a grinding noise , hub assembly has been replace problem stills there, what will be the problem?

It could be a lemon replacement hub or it could actually be the tire. Check the tires tread for irregular wear patterns. If the hub was loose prior to change this could easily cause the tire to wear in a "choppy" fashion which can also cause a rough humming sound that I have often heard customers refer to as a grinding sound.

How to replace brake pad and rotor on 2000 dodge stratus

First, take off the tire. Use an air tool if you have it. Then loosen the bolts holding the caliper to the rotor. Then pull the caliper off the rotor and take the rotor off the hub. Simply put the new rotor on the hub. Then take off the old pads and pay attention to how they are on to make it easier to install the new ones. Next you need a C-clamp. You have to push the piston back down inside the caliper for it to fit on the rotor with the new pads. Put on the new pads and put it in place on the rotor. Tighten the bolts back on the caliper and you're almost done. I also like to put never seize on the rotor around where the tire touches it so it's easier to remove for the next time. Put the tire back on and tighten it up. That's all! Good luck!

When i put opn the breaks my van shimmeys like

Although "Rotors" would have been a good guess, the wheel bearings, ball joint and tie rods should all have been checked after the wheels were lifted off the ground. Also the Caliper Bolts and/or Bolt Guides should be checked to see if they are warped. Warpage could also cause shuddering.
Is there any shaking while at highway speeds (without the braking)? Then it could be an alignment issue.
A bald tire in the front is not helping is dangerous and illegal in most states. The small dent in the rim in the back is not safe either. This could lead to a catastrophic tire failure. You can hammer those back a little and make it safer.
Good luck!!

Front Passenger brakes rubbing

Dis brakes have residual pressure thar keeps the pads in constant contact with the roter.It is very light contact, so not to worry. If left is not in contact with rotor then chk it for loose wheel bearings.

Need to replace front breaks

Very simple! Saves a lot of money too and after you do them, you'll laugh about others PAYING to have this done!

First, make sure you have the correct tool to break loose the bolts on the backside of the caliper...should be a hex bolt or a star Torx bolt. Also, have a large C-clamp. You'll need this to compress the piston.

Have the pads ready and also get some anti sqeak lube (you can get it in a little packet the size of a ketchup only need one...but get 2 just in case).

Next, place a block or the equivelant, against the rear tires. Then, remove the hub cap (if applicable) and break loose the lug nuts...just loosen them, do not remove. After that, jack the car and place a jack stand under the frame.

Remove the lug nuts, remove the tire....put a piece of cardboard or old sheet or something under the rotor area. The brake dust is pretty "sticky" and is a little bit of a pain to clean off of the concrete.

Now, have some string or wire close by. You will now break loose the two bolts, one upper and one lower, and then wiggle the caliper off. Remove the old pads...and with the string or wire, hang the caliper up and out of the way. Take a look now at the outside and the inside of the rotor. You are looking for deep grooves or damage to the rotor surface. If you find any, you should replace the rotor. They are fairly cheap by the way!

After inspecting the rotor, look at the old pads and match the new ones to them. You see the old marks on the old pads? This is where the anti squeak lube comes into play. Put the lube on the new pads in the same shape and location as the old one. Set those aside.

Now, take the large c-clamp and put one end of it on the back side of the caliper and the other side of the clamp on the piston (this is on the inside of the caliper). If you have a thin scarp of baord, place that against the piston and place the other side of the c-clamp against it. Start to twist the handle of the c-clamp don't want to over-pressurize your master cylinder. Comp[ress it till it is flat against the caliper. the brake pads back into the caliper. They may clip in. Take your time. Keep whatever you can off of the rotor and the pad surfaces.

After you have the pads on the caliper, start to slide it over the rotor. Wiggle it slowly till you have it in place. Now start the upper bolt back into its hole. Once you have the upper in, do the lower. You just want to get them finger tight....making sure you actually have the bolt started. After that, finish tightening them and put the tire back on and then the lug nuts.

Remove the jack stand and lower the car. Finish tightening the lug nuts and that's it. You DO NOT need to bleed your brakes.

That's it! Jump to the other side and repeat the procedures!
