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.

Hole with notches is likely a torks screw Looks like an allan key hole with extra splines? they make a bit that fits in there. It's on the flat surface where the wheel mounts right?

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!

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!
