There is no thinking at all here

If you never polished the hub & rotor
clean & applied anti-seize in the past,
it is rusted on.

Spray center hole of rotor with penetrating
fluid & hit the rotor with the end of a wood 2x4

Changed front rotors and pads on 1995 dodge ram 2500 diesel compressed calipers,now calipers will not fit over rotors

first make sure you have the right rotors as they make different sizes for anti lock or 4x4 or h/d if you sure you have the right ones then the calipers may not be all the way open often we press them open prior to remove the old pads if that was the case try press them whit a new pad only as it opens the second pad will fit in please let me know if this helped if you need further assistance i'll be glad to help

I can't remove rear rotors on a 2005 dodge ram 4x4 2500.Any suggestions would be so helpful.

Spray some penetrating fluid (WD40 etc) around the hub and studs. Also spray around the back of the rotor where the rotor meets the face of the hub. If you want to save the rotor a few good taps on the rotor hat might persuade it enough. If you don't need to save it you can give it some good hits on the edges.

2001 ram 2500 how to remove the wheel hub assembly

Remove tire. Remove caliper and caliper holder. Remove rotor. Using a 36 MM socket remove center nut and slide hub off spindle. If hub does not come off freely use wheel puller to remove hub.Loosen front wheel lug nuts. Jack up and support front of truck with jack stands ( put them in the middle so both you can get to both sides of the truck). Remove tire, Remove caliper and caliper holder. romove rotor ( I had to use a 2x4 wedged between rotor and lower controll arm rubber stoper. then started truck and turned the wheel right or left to pop rotor free). remove 3 bolts that hold hub to knuckle. on the next step I used a steel pipe about 1 1/2 foot i think about 2 inches in diamater. wedge it between lower controll arm rubber stoper. then start truck turn the wheel left or right to let power steering pump do the work. It poped it off easy for me both sides in less than 1 hour. put alot of anti seize on the new hubs and bolts in case you have to replace them again. use a torque wrench to tighten all bolts. Great time to replace brakes as long as you are in the area. hope this helps.

2005 gmc 2500 hd needs front rotors at 23,000 miles cause there're rusted out. How do you change?

Its not uncommon for rust to accumulate on rotors. Normally rotors are good for 50,000 miles or more. If they're not warped or severly grooved, the rust won't hurts them.

1999 dodge cummins 2500 front axel seals

you need to pull off wheels,brakes, rotor /unit hub bearing, both axles and intermediate shaft, as well as the vac disconnec ton the front axle tube. if only the right side leaks then only then only pull the right axle and intermediate shaft and vac disco. it is a trick with a miller tool to replace the seal. the left side seal is inside the diff and the carrier has to come out to replace it. pete

after removing the wheel &caliper depending on rust build up you may need to hit the rotor between the wheel studs this may take some time after removal check for rust build up on hub remove rust with hammer, sanding&scraping put some anti seize lube around hub making sure no rust is caught in between depending if you are replacing the pads you have to push the caliper piston back with a large pair of chanel lock pliers or suitable tool,then you can reassemble.thanx from schleck
