I have a John Deere 318. All of a sudden one of the rear wheels will not turn when place in forward or reverse while the other wheel does not. Where do I start looking this started with no indication of failure.

Brakes first, is parking brake/lock engaged? Then you will have to pull that wheel and get the hub off to see if the brake fell apart and jammed the wheel.

The rear wheel is removed. The rear brakes appear not to be locked. What is the procedure for removing the brake hub. That must be my next look.
Thanks!

It now is functioning properly. I found a thread on removal of the hub. Once I removed the nut and tapped on the hub the wheel moved freely. Apparently the brakes were frozen. The brakes are working good also now. Thanks for your response!
