SOURCE: 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Front

I'm having the same problem. My 2000 WJ is pushing 95,000 miles. I bought it with 20,000 miles in 2001 so i'm unaware of an issue before. The first time i had the warpage, i had the rotors turned and replaced the pads (organic). It worked well for a while. When the problem returned i replaced the rotors and pads (ceramic) which lasted longer. I have now been driving the vehicle in Italy for the past 2 years. The problem has been gradually getting worse within the last few months. After some research online. I've come to the conclusion of replacing my Teves calipers with Akebono calipers which Jeep upgraded future WJ's with in 2002. Along with a caliper replacement you have to replace the rotors as well. After some more research regarding slotted, drilled, vented rotors, i'm just going to go with stock replacements. Right now i'm trying to figure out if there's a better caliper/rotor combination before i commit to this order. As it is, it's around $500. Also, like the previous poster. Make sure you don't overtighten your lug-nuts. I don't know if that contributed to my problems. I've always used a hand 4-way type lug nut wrench. I recently read that they should only be tightened from 85-100 lbs/ft. I'm going to place the order for the parts which should arrive in about a week.

Check the slide pins on the caliper, they can get dirty or rusty and can cause the brakes to stick - usually indicated by one side of the pads wearing rapidly. The pins should be cleaned and lubricated fully with each brake service.

SOURCE: How do you remove the front brake rotor?

To remove the rotor you need to first remove the two bolts holding the caliper on. You need to make sure that you have something to put the caliper on or a piece of string to tie it up so that it's not hanging. After that, you need to remove the two bolts holding the caliper bracket on. You will have to get to this by looking behind the caliper (it's pretty easy to find). Once you have removed the caliper bracket, you will be able to just pull the caliper off. I have a 99 jeep and this is exactly how I did it just a couple of weeks ago. Let me know if once you have taken the caliper and bracket off if it doesn't just pull off. I assume the 01 and 99 will be the same. If it doesn't pull off, your jeep is a little different and you will have a hub nut in the middle of the rotor that you need to take off first. Again, I don't think that will be the case but if it is you can "rent" for free, the correct size socket from Auto Zone to take the hub nut off. Let me know if you have further questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Jeep front wheels are locked like it is stuck in 4x4 accept it won't move when put in gear. Rear wheels will load up but front tires will not turn when in 4wd or 2wd

Most likely your front brakes are locked on. You need to try and force the brake pads apart and remove the pads and clean up the discs.

Reset esc on patriot

you cant.
if they set, the auto clear if they stop failing
RTM did you read the opearators guide, yet> it say that.

first off, get the brakes fixed.
both those systems, require, good brakes.

lets say one pad is bad.
so the ABS can not control this wheel.
so since ESC uses ABS then it too fails. so forget ESC, that is last.
the FSM covers the scan tests.
scan it.
did you even scan it? if not , maybe there is a DTC error
that needs to be addresses.
like ABS sensor RF is dead, or reading wrong or my gosh,
the pad there is toasted.
or grease on the rotor?

not doing a full brake inspection now, misses the boat

Why squeaky brakes on jeep

front or rear.??? my guess front.... wild guess.
if car has pads with the noise makers this is normal and the early warning.
if pads are thick (why not look first???) and squeal.?
  1. this is normal all disc brakes squeal, can and will if they want to.
  2. or has missing anti-squeal shims on pad due bad mech. serv.
  3. or not using anti-squeal glue on back side of new pads.
  4. if in a perfect world they can in fact squeal.
if you have new rotors and pads and all above is good. they may not squeal. the rotors can be tad bump and the pads will resonate to this rotor surface, its harmless this. only annoying.

other factors, why not do a full inspection of the pads and rotors
first and not just guess and wonder.
  • Cracked rotors
  • leaking DOT 3/4
  • calipers guide pins seized.
  • Pads shot
  • missing parts, the FSM shows all parts as does jeep parts page.
  • rotors shot , worn illegally thin, warped, or just ugly bad and old.
this is what we call SOP
standard operatiing proceedures.

Screeching metallic noise front wheel

Look for brake pads grinding the brake rotor. It could be the "screamer" which is a small metal part that contacts the brake rotor telling you the pads are worn. Hopefully it hasn't ruined the brake rotor.

How can I change the rotors and brakes on a 2006 Cadillac?

Front brake
Step 1: Identify Front Disc Brake Components
Front Wheel Drive Brake Assembly
Most front disc brake components include: brake rotor, brake pads, brake caliper, caliper mount and brake flex hose. Brake service usual occurs between 20,000 and 40,000 miles depending on driver habits, road conditions and brake pad/ rotor materials used.
Step 2: Remove Brake Caliper to Replace Pads
Removing Brake Caliper Mounting Bolts
Locate primary caliper mounting bolts; apply wrench pressure counter-clockwise (When looking at the head of the bolt) to remove the bolts, upper and lower. Make sure the bolt threads are in good shape and replace if necessary.
Step 3: Remove Front Brake Caliper
Remove Front Brake Caliper
After removing the primary caliper mounting bolts lift the brake caliper off of the rotor and then tie or secure to the side, being careful not to bend or kink the brake caliper flex hose. Thoroughly inspect brake caliper and brake hoses for leakage, cracks or chaffing and replace as needed. Next remove the brake pads (If not mounted in the caliper) and secondary caliper mounting bolts. Notice how great protective gloves work, most technicians use them on the job today.
Step 4: Remove Brake Pads
Remove Front Brake Pads
Once the brake pads have been removed, make sure if there is anti rattle hardware to transfer to the new brake pads. Some brake pad manufacturers will include the proper lube (Caliper slides) and anti-rattle hardware to ensure proper performance of their product.
Step 5: Remove Caliper Mount
Remove Caliper Mount Bracket
Finish removing secondary caliper mount bolts and remove caliper mount. Note: clean and lube caliper slides and pad friction surfaces of all foreign material or build-up.
Step 6: Remove Brake Rotor
Remove Brake Rotor
With the caliper mount out of the way you can now remove the brake rotor. Sometimes it can get stuck so you may need to tap it with a hammer or use penetrating oil to free it up. Some manufacturers use small screws to hold the rotor on as well. Clean and inspect wheel studs, replace if any are damaged. Also clean bearing hub rotor mount surface to ensure the proper mounting of the new brake rotor. Inspect the ABS sensor wheel for cracks or damage and replace as needed.
Step 7: Depressing the Brake Caliper
Resetting Brake Caliper
To install the new brake pads you must retract the brake caliper piston. Remove the master cylinder lid or open the brake caliper bleeder screw to allow excess brake fluid to be released if necessary. Install C clamp tool and gently tighten clamp until caliper piston is fully depressed. Note: use old brake pad to protect the caliper piston. Close the bleeders once the piston is retracted completely
Step 8: Installing New Brake Rotor
Install Brake Rotor
Install new brake rotor, the new rotor is manufactured with a protective film over the rotor to keep it from rusting, remove protective film with brake cleaner before installing; also after the brake job is complete you may experience a small amount of smoke from the rotor when first used. This is normal and will go away after the first couple of uses.
Step 9: Installing New Front Brake Pads
Installing New Brake Pads
Reinstall the front brake caliper mount, and then install front brake pads. Make sure the pads are seated properly in the caliper mount; it must be a close fit to work properly..
Step 10: Reinstall Front Brake Caliper
Re-Install front Bake Caliper
Reinstall front brake caliper and reinstall caliper-mounting bolts, recheck all mounts and mounting bolts. Check the caliper slides to be sure there is no bind and that the caliper moves freely back and forth on the caliper slides. Bleed brake system per manufacturer's specifications to relieve any air trapped in the system. Before driving the vehicle, push the brake pedal down and let it up slowly, repeat until normal brake pedal operation resumes, this operation is forcing the brake pads to travel to the brake rotors.

Front brakes on a 2005 Jeep Rubicon

Once you take the caliper bracket off, the rotor should just fall off. If the Jeep stops without any vibrations I would leave the rotors alone., unless they are scored badly from brake pads worn out and metal to metal.

Need to replace front rotors and brake pads

All you have to do is take off your calipers and the rotor will slide right off. Use a C clamp to push the piston of the caliper back in so you can put your new brakes on.
