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 bolts pull out after being unscrewed Rock the caliper back and forth to release the pads and caliper assy. from the anchor assy. If you are removing the rotors to be cut then you have to remove the larger bolts holding the anchor bracket . TIP the piston on the the LEFT side is turned clockwise to collapse BUT the piston on the RIGHT side is turned COUNTER-CLOCKWISE
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.

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.
