Customer Question
Regarding a 2005 Dodge...

Regarding a 2005 Dodge Ram 3500. need to replace the rear emergency brake system. told it was the right rear. can you tell me what it looks like and what it is called so I can order it. Dodge dealer said has to have a new brake system and it is $450 for the part. Is this true I would like to do the work myself. if possible

Mechanic's Assistant: Have your brakes ever been replaced? Have you checked the brake fluid?

Yes regulars have been changed and hubs and fluid is fine. Nepew is a mechanic said the inside drum,right side, is completely gone. So I need to know what parts I need.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Ram yourself? What have you tried so far?

Nothing I need to pull a loaded trailer so I want to fix it so I can be safe. Yes I would like to do it myself.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

It is a hard job? I just want to order all parts required.

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT.

I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
