I would ck again, you might just be seeing the plastic housing for the wiring connection and missing the actual brass nut directly below that housing, place the socket slightly over the housing and ck. the fit by attempting to turn the socket by hand in either direction. If you experience a loose fit where the socket turns just a little, slip the socket down until it seats against the base of the sensor firmly and try turning again. I would expect the socket once it is seated all the down onto the nut you will feel no movement when attempting to turn by hand.

SOURCE: Hub Assy replacement for 2002 Dodge Ram 4x4

when you take off the front wheels, you can see behind the hub assembly. there should be 4 or 5 star style bolts that hold the hub in place. you can either break them loose on the truck or in a vise. you will need a star socket,( or it may need a 12 point socket?). there is also a big nut in front of the hub that will take a lot of torque to remove (300-500lbs). the axle is probably going to be rusted also, so you will have to work it out. it is easier to buy a hub, some come in pieces, so you'll have to have them pressed together by a machine shop and them put them on. i am getting ready to do this on on my dually and the axle nut is torqued to 500lbs. be careful and i hope this helps you. andy

What size socket do i need to take a axle nut off of a 2007 dodge caliber?


The one that fits! You open up your socket set and you pick the one that fits the nut perfectly. Going to be about 22mm. If you are going to work on your vehicle a full socket set with ratchet and bar is essential.

Spark plug socket dont fit dodge ram


I think your vehicle takes a 15mm or 16mm socket. Normal spark plug wrench will not work. Visit your local Parts Store for more information. Have them show you a replacement plug for your truck and see what socket fits it.
Good Luck.

How do you replace break lights in 2007 Dodge Caliber?


Look inside the rear hatch area near the very rear of the vehicle. You should find a removable panel near the brake light housing. After you carefully remove the panel, look for some plastic wingnuts that hold the light housing in, and remove them, you should not need any tools to do this. After the nuts are removed you should be able to gently remove the tail light assembly from the rear of the car. Becareful not to damage the wiring. Now look at the back side of the tail lamp assembly and look for a locking tab on the light socket. Depress the locking tab and twist the light socket about a quarter turn, then pull the light socket away from the light housing. Pull the bulb out and replace it. Then reassemble and your done.
