Question about 2002 Jeep Liberty

2 Answers

02 Jeep Liberty

My car pulls to the right when I brake. The harder I brake the harder it pulls. The Brakes were recently done complete with rotors by a certified & trusted mechanic. It was fine, then there was road work being done and I think I may have hit a bump or something. I have been offered suggestions of Master Cylinder and also Tie Rod. I hesitate to take it to the dealer until I know what it is.....

This could be a bad brake caliper.
The right side is doing the most braking.
Could be the left side is frozen.
None the less this should be checked on a lift.

Sounds like you need brakes or there is a rock stuck in between the caliper and backing plate.

Seel Immediate repairs before you loose your brakes alltogether.

I replaced both brake pads and rotors on both the front and rear of my 2007 Jeep Liberty but when I brake, especially from a higher spped such as an exit ramp, there is shaking/pulsating in the brake...


The brake rotors need to be cut or replaced. There are high spots and low spots on the rotor, and due to this, the brake pedal will pulse when the brakes are applied. When ever brakes are replaced, the rotors should also be serviced.

I had the same experience in the past and it turned out to be the caliper that was getting stuck and the pads would not retract away from the rotors causing friction and eventually burning your pads.

I just purchased a 05 Jeep Liberty and I now hear a clicking/tapping sound coming from I think the front right. It goes away when I apply the brakes. I just had a complete brake job done to the vehicle....


It is probably brake pad pulsation due to worn rotors (the thickness is less then it is required). Also check brake caliper assembly.
Good Luck
