2007 Jeep Cherokee (Liberty in USA) rear brake disk problem

I had 4 new tyres fitted on my Jeep Cherokee Limited 2.8CRD TurboDiesel 2007. The mechanic had left the rear left hand side wheel off to show me the state of the brake disk. It is so badly worn that at different places the metal surfacing the disk is missing. My car has only done 20 000 miles and is still under warranty until March 2010. I brought the car to the Jeep Dealer where I bought the car from new, thinking that they would carry out the work under warranty but they told me that was due to corrosion and wouldn't do the job unless I pay for it!!
It is clear that only disk is destroyed not the others which are normaly worn but still ok.Does anybody has encountered the same problem?

    Hi x18wheeler60, thanks to take the time to reply to me. In my opinion it is indeed a problem with the calliper but the Dealer told me that they checked it and it was working normaly. In the meantime I found online people in the states and in Australia complainning about the same problem at the rear like me. Also Jeep US has recalled Grand Cheerokee and Commander models of the same year as mine (2007) due to their break calliper that snapped during tests because they were made with the wrong metal. My car is still under warranty and I am not sure how to handle this. Your help would very appreciated.

    I''ve emailed another dealer and added the pics of the disc. I then called them later and told them that I wanted a second opinion. They said that looking at the state of the disc on the pics it looked like a warranty job but I must pay for the pads which is fair enough. I enquired about the calliper and they say they can't tell before seeing it. So I've got an appointment next Thursday but before that I will try to get the email address of the importer Jeep UK and ask for a list of recalls for my Vin number like you suggested. I'll let you know when I get a result. Thanks for your help.

If one disc is wearing down more than others, a possible cause could be a sticking brake calipar, or more pressure is going to that brake than the other ones.

    Go back or call the dealer, tell them you heard that there were recalls for that problem,give them the vin# of the jeep, and they can tell if that model has a recall.If it does, they have to fix it, no charge.

Changing my 1989 from 4 wheel drive to 2 wheel drive and Anti-Locking Braking System


An ABS system will have wheel sensors installed. Remove one of your wheels and look for a wiring harness that runs to your steering knuckle(the part that you brake rotor and strut is attached to. Also, either you front half shaft or brake rotor will have what looks like gear teeth on them. These are the magnets the sensor reads. If your Jeep has either of these it has an ABS system. Secondly the chassis on the Cherokees should be the same irregardless of trim level (limited vs regular). These trim levels affect the interior trim and power extras only not the mechanical parts.
