Changing rear rotors

We are trying to change the rear rotors on a 2005 magnum and are getting resistance when pulling them off. it almost seems to have a spring effect. it is loose but when you pull it pulls back. help!! a mechanic friend suggests hitting them w/a hammer to break it loose. is there anything we need to release? ie. clamp, spring, etc.....

The park brake shoes are on the inside of the rotors, you need to back off the adjustment on the park brake shoes to get the rotors off. They are cable operted and that is were the adjuster is.

Sounds like you have a tranny going bad. You can't fill or change fluid in that transmission. Dealer only can fix unless you are a transmission expert. Non serviceable. Sorry

PULSATION WHEN APPLY BRAKES


Even though you replaced the rotors, seems that you will still need to have them resurfaced. This assuming you are experiencing pulsation only when braking.

Changing rear rotors


The parking brake shouldn't be holding them on unless you have the brake set. Don't hit them with a hammer or you'll damage the parking brake shoes and springs. Check the cables to make sure they aren't rusted or binding. More likely than not this is the case as the shoes have dug into the rotor. If they are, use a screwdriver to press the shoes off the rotor as you or an assistant slides them off.
