Per Chilton Auto repair manual:

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the rear wheel.
  3. Siphon a small amount of brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir.

    WARNING Support the brake caliper with mechanics wire. Do not let the caliper hang by the brake hose.
  7. Remove the brake pads from the caliper.
To install:

  2. Lubricate the slide pin bolts with grease provided with the brake pads, or suitable silicon grease equivalent.

Can you see the cooling fans come on? When the engine gets to 212 degrees the fans should come on. To test the fans, with the engine running turn the A/C on high, the fans should come on .
The system also has a 212 switch that screws into the intake manifold. This is what turns on the fans with no A/C.
I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: install a altenator for a 2006 jeep commander

I would rate this a 5 in difficulty. If you have a metric socket set, basic hand tools and a supertine belt tool it's fairly easy repair. You can rent a surpentine belt tool at Autozone.

Disconnect the battery
remove the cowling
remove the supertine belt from the altenator pully
disconnect the red wire on the back of the altenator
disconnect the harness plug from the altenator
remove the bolts holding the altenator to the mounting brackets.
Reverse the process with the new altenator and it it's done.
Make sure your battery is charged before you start the engine a low battery can cause damage to your new altenator.

Had no heat, although blower works fine. Replaced thermostat, and had to replace water pump, due to bolt shearing off. Still, have no heat.

Last step is to flush the heater core. After that, replace the heater core. You need a manual, because you have to remove the dash.

Over heating and pushing all the coolant up into the overflow resivoir and when i take the radiator cap off it trys to suck it back from pressure

I would check the water pump as well as the thermostat. I am betting this is the water pump but I would replace both if that is the case. Thermostat is a 15 dollar part and very easy to replace. Water pump a little bit more difficult but not a hard job either.

Just changed water pump also the thermostat on 06 jeep cherokee 3.7 l and for some reason engine is overheating can somebody help me please

you now need to bleed the cooling sys, or air bubbles will remain in sys keeping fluid from moving properly through out sys. More coolant will be needed as you perfrom the bleeding process.

My jeep grand cherokee started overheating at idle

try the water pump - first - make sure the radiator is really full - take the cap off cold and fill - if it looks full - start and run 8 minutes or so - then fill it up - look at ur fan belt - is it tight - tight is about how much pressure u use to make a firm hand shake with little movement - any movement over about an inch is loose - when the jeep warms up the belt can slip and not even make a noise - - new materials don't always squeal. - then be sure ur water pump is ok - they go slowing - the fins wear down - one more thing is the radiator - u don't say how many miles or what maintenance schedules you have or not so that's it for now
