You may have to smack the tire to get the rim off. If the rims haven't been off in quite a while, they can seize on. Take your palm and smack the lower portion of the tire, then smack the top. Keep working at it until the rim brakes loose.

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

Lugs are off, but the wheel won't budge on my 2007 dodge aspen. Help?


hi, this is a common fault this due to rust it needs to be spreyed with penertrating oil. the inner rim to hub is rusted or mud build-up. make sure the car is secure and you may need to wack the tyre ONLY to free the wheel. when replacing put a small amount of grease on the inner rim hub, to stop this happening again. thanks. gerry

2007 Dodge Magnum, RT/AWD - Front Driver side wheel area noise, like snow/ice was caught up under, checked notheing. One month later the noise came back but with a vengence. Now makes the noise at all...


Check the Brakes first. Are the pads worn down to metal. Is the Caliper Stuck (open)?
Raise and Support the Front and Rear (because of AWD) of the vehicle.
Remove the left front tire. Make sure the Parking Brake is engaged. Place the lug nuts back on the lug studs. Place the Vehicle in Neutral. Turn the wheel (without the tire on) and listen for where the noise is coming from. A bad bearing will feel rough (not smooth) and sound 'crackly' when trying to turn the one wheel. Make sure it is not from the CVJ.
If not smooth: Remove and Replace the wheel bearing. And yes you can do it yourself saving you about $150-$200 dollars. It is a bolt-on (4 bolts) bearing. Bolt Heads should be on the back side of the steering knuckle.
Remove the Brake Caliper, Caliper Brace, and Rotor.
Remove the 4-bolts (turn the wheels left and right to better access these bolt heads) and slip the bearing off the Axle. You may have to hit the bearing to loosen it.
