They should just come off. but may need some hammer to assist. they tend to rust up like most other rotors. nothing special needed.

How to remove rotor on rear of 2005 dodge 3500? Do I need special equipment?


If you truck has a standard rear axle just remove the caliper and caliper adapter bracket, then the rotor will pull off. Sometimes if the hub face is rusted it may take a little persuasion to come off. You can hit it with a ball peen hammer between the wheel studs, this is usually enough to free it. If you have a dually you will need to remove the axle shafts first by removing the bolts around the outside of the axle housing then pull the shafts outward. Then remove the caliper and caliper adapter. Slide rotor and hub assembly off of axle, then unbolt the the hub from the rotor.

How do i remove the hub assembly from the front wheel of my 2001 dodge ram RWD?


  • Jack up your Dodge Ram. Block the wheels to keep it from rolling as you work. Get started by removing the first tire and wheel assembly. Remove the hub extension and the brake caliper as well as the caliper adapter.
  • Remove the grease cap, cotter pin, nut lock, nut, washer and outer wheel bearing. Now, pull the old rotor off of the spindle. Clean the area with a damp cloth to remove any debris. Pack the wheel bearings with grease.
  • Install the new rotor and hub onto the spindle. Replace the outer wheel bearing, washer, and then the retaining nut. Torque the nut to 30 to 40 ft. lbs. while rotating the hub and rotor. Then tighten the nut and install the nut lock and a new cotter pin.
  • Clean the grease cap and then coat it with new wheel bearing grease and replace the cap. Put the caliper adapter back into place and then tighten the two mounting bolts with a torque wrench. Install the wheel and tire assembly.
  • Repeat this process for each additional rotor and then lower the vehicle. Tighten the lug nuts and test drive your Dodge Ram to make sure that the installation was successful.

    Left front hub replacement 2WD.


    2WD pickups don't have hubs. They have rotors with bearings. Once you have the brake assembly supported, remove nut from spindle. Be sure not to strip the threads on the spindle. Remove the front set of bearings and pull the rotor off. Remove the rear set of bearings. Be sure to pack greases into new bearings prior to installation. Insert new rear bearing into rotor and replace onto spindle. Insert new front bearing and washer and re-install nut. Tighten to recommended torque specs, grease fittings and replace brake assembly.

    I have a 2004 dodge ram 2500 4x4 . the front drive shaft has a ball kit in it . how do i replace this and how does it work?


    If it is the tipical cvshaft you must replace the whole shaft if you have the old style straight axle you have to take the four wheel assembly apart remove the rotor assembly this means that in some Dodges you have to have the bearing unpressed and a new bearing installed when you change the universal joint in the wheel shaft good luck these are tuff to do

    Right front wheel bearing needs replacing,I see where the 2006 model is recalled for this problem, not the 2005?


    Not sure if recall for 2005 models, I have one and the front bearings are packed in a hub, you have to remove the wheel, caliper and base and behind the hub theres 3 5/8" bolts, remove them and you will have a complete assembly removed.

    How do I get the axles out of a Dodge Ram 1500 4WD?


    Remove the hub/bearing assemblies and the axles will pull right out. 3 bolts (12 point bolts) hold each bearing to the knuckle, and the bearings may be frozen into the knuckles - this can be a problem and you may need the assistance of a pro if you can't get them out.
