If the caliper is damaged it will not allow the piston to be retracted enough to put the pad in, use a caliper compression tool, available at most parts stores to compress it, otherwise the caliper may need to be replaced.

Hi, When cornering I get a 'scrubbing noise' from the back end on my 2000 Jeep Grand cherokee 3.1td auto Ltd. Any ideas? regards John


change the differential gear oil, if problem persists inspect the rear brakes they may be in need of pad or brake shoe replacement.

I need to change the rear brake pads on a 2004 jeep cherokee


first put the car on jack stands secure the front tires so it does not roll second take the bolts out behind the caliper and once off you will be able to remove the old pads; keep one to use to press the cylinder back in using a "C" clamp so you can put the new ones on also remove a little of the brake fluid from the master cylinder before doing this so you do not damage the check valve and once everything is back together be sure to put brake fluid back in and pump the brakes before driving and if needed for additional information try www.autozone.com to see if your vehicle is listed

Brake pads specifications


I just searched google and looked at JC Whitney. They have brake parts and ship internationally. (don't know cost) But it's worth looking into!

Changed front brake pads. brake pedal goes to floor. no brakes


Something doesn't sound right, you shouldn't have to remove the brake line to install pads. Did you have to do this on both sides? Do the new pads and the old pads look the same? Did you get the caliper on crooked? Just recheck your work first before replacing more parts. When you install the caliper, You have to hook the pad on one side first before you slide it over the rotor.
