Question about 2005 Jeep Liberty

Grinding on right front brakes

We have an 06 Jeep Liberty and had the brake pads changed about 2 months ago. Everything was fine but noticed a small leak of brake fluid under the carabout one month ago. Checked the bolts and the one bolt that holds the brake fluid in was loose, so I tightened it and there hasn't been any problems. Until yesterday.. Now whenever I hit the brakes, all I get is a terrible grinding noise and the car pulls to the right. Any suggestions? I know I should take it to the dealer or a shop, but I would like to know what it could be so I don't get screwed at the shop

    k, I will check that, thanks for the help

    yeah it isn't under any warranty so I will check it out. Does anyone know how much it will cost to fix if it is the caliper or if it is just that little hose for the brake fluid?

Sounds to me that the calaber has tied up and it has wore the break pads away. might be worth your time to pull the wheel off and look it over. but if its under waranty why mess with it let dealer do it.

You have a caliper sticking,the hose that the fluid was or is laeking from may be kinked up or damaged. Check with your dealer to see if it is under warranty.

    The front caliper is easy to replace as long as you have patience and some sort of mechanical ability.

    Where that the car is pulling to the right it would be the right front caliper which "squeezes" the pads together agianst the rotor (disc). You may want to replace the rotor as well because of the excess haet that is buliding up you may have warped the rotor as well.

It is never normal for your brakes to "grind". A lil squeaky, not so bad. Grinding, not so good. I would take it back to whoever replaced them and have them checked. Ceramic pads are better pads because the stop you better and last longer than matallic pads, and the also create less dust, but they should not be grinding. It could be a sign of improper installation or a sign of bad or worn rotors. Definately have it checked out.

Squeaks when turning right. Seems to come from right front.

That is most likely a brake pad chirper and it is telling you that it is getting near time to change the brake pads.

New rotors are making a grinding noise.

You did replace the pads at the same time ... right? What about the bearings ... did you pack them correctly? Everything adjusted properly and to factory recommended specs?

Some grinding is normal until the surfaces wear in ...

You must have a piston stuck in one caliper, and it's not releasing the pressure off your brake pad.
