Try loosening the bleeder screw on the back of the caliper, then you'll have to rockit back and forth til you get enough leeway to pull it off

After putting on new calipers on both sides of my dodge ram 2005 1500 and bled brakes I have no brakes. What is the problem they worked fine until I did the caliper and brake


Did you bleed rear brakes also? Should do all 4 whenever bleeding brakes starting w/ right rear, left rear, right front then left front. Sounds like air in lines.

Right brake locks up when applied i have new brake shoes on brake shoes are on the right way


The longer brake shoe goes ot the back side of the vehicle. If you replaced the front brakes did you replace the rubber brake line going to the caliper? Some times they collapse inside creating a one way valve that will not allow the hydraulic pressure to release. You mention brake shoes - don't know if you mean pads as on the front of most vehicles. (some vehicles have disc brakes all around) You don't say if front or back brakes are the culprit. Hope this helps. Let me know. Thanks.

How to determine if 97 Ram 1500 has 2- or 4- 2wheel brakes? Need info for wheel bearing replacement.


on 1997 dodge ram 1500s you can look at the back of the front brakes and if you do have 4wheel abs you will have a brake line and an electrical line running tto the brake caliper. you can also look at the master cylinder, on the right side of the power brake booster (if youre looking from the front of the truck) there will be a metal brake distribution block if it has 2 lines running out of it you have 2 wheel abs...4 lines means 4 wheel abs

1997 1500 4x4 pulls to the right


Sounds like a brake caliper hanging up. Check the slides to see that they're smooth working. Jack the right side up & make sure the front wheel turns fairly easy. If it's dragging alot then the caliper slide is fubar or the brake hose is collapsed internaly. Replace the hose if that's the case.

Any special tools required for front brakes on a 1991 Dodge Ram 1500 ?


Nothing other than Caliper piston retractor or large "c" clamp to push the caliper piston back into the caliper body.

Brake pad replacment on 2004 Dodge Ram 1500


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.
