Remove two bolts holding caliper on and pull up as hard as you can on the caliper. Wiggling back and forth at the same time helps.

Also be sure to either have your rotors turned by a professional or buy new rotors. They wear grooves and warp over time and if not machined back into a smooth flat surface it will cause a shaking and uneaven braking problems and will greatly increase the wear on your new pads. New rotors are not that much but getting them turned at a parts store usually costs around $5-10 each. Also not turning the rotors may viod any warranty you have on the new pads.

2004 emergency brake does the rotor need to be taken out


What is the problem so far? You will find a rubber plug on the inside of the backing plate, you must loosen the auto matic adjuster in side before you can remove the disc, you will need to try either direction with a screwdriver once you find the correct direction ( you will feel the disc turn easier) continue until you can remove the disc. The replacing of the brakes after that is straight forward.

How do I get the brake pads off a 2004 Dodge Ram?


Take your tire off, unbolt your caliper which is holding you pads to the rotor, and then just take a flat head screw driver and lightly take the pads out of the clips but if your replacing the pads its always a good idea to replace the clips.

Installing brake pads on 2004 ram 1500


get a c-clamp and take one of the old pads and place on the caliper piston. screw the clamp till the piston is fully seated. make sure to apply pressure evenly to not damage the seal.

do one side at a time or you may cause the other sides piston to pop out of the caliper. if both sides are already disassembled, you can take the old pads and place them in the other caliper, so the piston movement is limited.

after the piston is seated, put the new pads into the brace, it should be fairly obvious where they go. put the caliper on the bracket and install and tighten the bolts.

I would suggest buying a repair manual from an auto store, especially if you have never done a brake job before.

hope this helped.
