    I got a 2015 Dodge Ram 1500 pick up as a loaner. I locked the parking brake, and now I can't unlock it. I don't have any manual and I don't know how to release it.

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.

I need to know what is wrong with my dodge ram 1500 . When I brake the truck squeals and its not my brake pads cause they look like new .


Did you install Dodge Replacement pads or aftermarket? With the size of the rotors and pads on your Ram it is not uncommon for aftermarket pads to have squeal. Did you install and use the anti-squeal material that should have come with the pads?

I have a dodge ram 1500 and yr 2007 and it sqeals only when breaking and it is not my brake pads


When were your pads replaced last? Aftermarket semi-metallic pads are all different. You could four sets of pads by the same manufacturer and three sets are fine and the forth set will squeal all of the time. If the brakes only make noise when you are applying pressure that is about all it could be. Your pads probably look new and still squeal. Try having your rotors resurfaced or scuffed up and see if that helps!

2006 dodge ram 2500 4x4 diesel replace brake pads front and back


Straight forward job. Remove wheels, remove 2 caliper bolts per wheel, check bolts,and bushings for wear/corrosion and lubricate, remove calipers, remove brake pads, push caliper pistons into calipers, replace anti-rattle clips, put new pads in, put caliper and bolts in, put wheels on. Start truck and press brake pedal several times to take up slack and you're done.

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.

04 dodge ram 1500 HEMI's new brake pads won't fit


what you need to do is line clamp brake hose so you dont push dirty brake fluid back into your system..(you can use a pair of needle nose visegrips if you dont own an actual line clamp) loosen bleeder at this point, remove caliper from attatching bracket, with old pad still installed next to piston use a big C-clamp to compress piston, just make sure clamp is centered and compress slowly allowing brake fluid to escape through loosened bleeder... once compressed tighten bleeder and install caliper and pads remove lineclamp....******NOTE******* no need to bleed the system cause of lineclamp procedure... Make sure upon reassembly you use plenty of brake lube on all sliding caliper parts...Good Luck
