Brakes problem
2004 Ford F150 V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 65000 miles

I'm trying to replace rear brake pads. I cant get the rear wheel off its rusted frozen to the hub.

Any suggestions on how to remove it

Update: Tried loosening lugnuts and driving, hitting with sledge hammer and dropping off jack, nothing worked.

Finally used penetrating oil and heated up the wheel around hub with a propane torch. Then gave the wheel a good kick and it fell off. After the wheel came off changing the brake pads took 15 minutes.

Do you
have the same problem?

See my profile. Maybe a Ma and Pop type tire store would hit the lug nuts w/ impact wrench just to break you loose. Impact sorta slaps nut in short rattling bursts. Not constant pressure as a breaker bar. Maybe no breaky studs. Maybe do it. No charge.
