It may just need a swift bump in the right direction to get it to come unstuck. Just be careful not to knock the car off the jack...

How to remove rear wheel


Hi, I hope I can help with this.
You should only have to remove the lug nuts and the wheel and tire will be removed. If you removed the center wheel nut then it sounds like you are trying to remove the brake rotor. To remove the wheel the 5 or 6 lug nuts need to be removed. To remove the rear spare tire there is a plastic cover to remove which then has a key hole (locks for security). You will need to unlock this as well.

Clunking on left front end


Hey Tony, tighten your lug nuts on the wheel. If it's not that, jack and remove the wheel and check for loose brake caliper. But most likely just loose lug nuts.

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

you may have a bit of corrosion on the wheel making it stick to the hub. put the lug nuts back on but leave them 2 turns loose. then lower the car to the ground. turn the wheel left and right to help break it loose. Raise car back up and remove the lug nuts.

Step by step removing and replacing the spair


Hi my name is Tom and I am here to help you.

By changing the spare tire, I am going to assume that you mean changing a flat tire using the spare tire. If I am mistaken please advise.

Locate the area where the spare tire and jack are located. You should see a lug wrench. This would be a X shaped device with closed sockets. Find the correct lug size needed for the Caravan. Loosen the lugs by turning the wrench counter clock wise. A little reminder is (lefty loosey, righty tightey)

After the lugs are loose, jack the car up using the jack provided. Near each wheel is notches which show you where to place the jack. Do not jack any further then you need to lift the car up. Keep in mind that an inflated tire is larger than a deflated.

Remove all the lug nuts and replace the flat tire with a good one. Put the lugs back on and hand tighten.
Lower the car and tighten the lug nuts firmly.

The only thing I believe I left out was removing the wheel covers. You should find in a packet with the jack a device to unlock the wheel cover. I can not tell you what it is because each car is unique.

I trust this is detailed enough for you. If not, please feel free to contact me and I will answer any questions you might have.

Please take the time to rank the information I gave you and how helpful it was. This will help me to do a better job for you and other to follow.

How do i change the front brakes on a 1991 oldsmobile cutlass ciera. i already have the brake paids


Hello, open the hood locate your brake fluid take the top off, than you want to losen the lug nuts one the wheel enough so they turn by hand. Jack up the car high enough to get a jack stand under it and the wheel is off the ground. Once the car is supported securely remove the lug nuts and wheel. Once the wheel is removed remove the screw on the bottom of the brake caliper, remove the old pads. Rotate the caliper upward, using a C-clamp and a old brake pad push the piston back in the caliper. Position the old brake pad to cover the piston and the C-clamp in the center of the old brake pad and slowly turn till the piston is fully retracted in the caliper. Install the new pads, put the caliper back in position, put the caliper screw back in double check work. Once every thing looks ok put the wheel back on, only hand tighten the lug nuts, make sure the wheel is tighten evenly. Remove jack stand, lower the car tighten the lug nuts using a crossing pattern once that is done pump the brakes, till they get firm, after they get firm start the car pump the brakes a few more times. The fun part take it for a test ride but allow your self more than normal distance to stop.

How do you change a tire on a honda crv? I need to get the tire off the back door and change the driver side front tire. Where does the jack go?


The owners manual shows where to put the jack. I no manual sometimes there are illustrations where the jack is stored in its compartment. First loosen the lug nuts before you jack up the vehicle, prevents the tire from turning. After jacking up the vehicle finish removing the lug nuts then remove the tire. The spare tire on the door may have a locking lug nut which requires a key to unlock before removing the lug nuts. Key us usually on the ignition key ring. Remove the lug nuts and put tire on the drivers side. Tighten up the nuts on the wheel and after the car is let down from the jack, finish tightening the lug nuts.
