    Yes I finally figured out how to get it off. Now to make sure I did it correctly..It does look like a allan key hole with extra splines. I didn't know I needed a bit so I hammered it off 4 light hits took it off nothing was broke. When I put the new one on in the dark it was loose until I added the caliper brace and bolts, caliper with brake pads and caliper bolts. Test drove all seemed fine but not sure if I did it right now after reading your question for me. There is a hole in the center of the rotor approx 3in diameter there is a solid metal cup looking device that rotor slides over in the center of that cup looking devise is where those splines are located is that for removal of the axle or is it a torks screw to properly remove the rotor

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?

    No...leave everything in the center of the hub alone...I was thinking you had a small screw on the wheel mating surface (usually meant to pretty much hold the rotor on while in the factory, and to eliminate some vibration) Your rotor was just rusted onto the hub.Sounds like you did it correctly!

How to replace front rotors 2005 jeep liberty

Hi Wayne, I'm glad to help!

You'll need to support the vehicle on safety stands. Then take off the front wheels, Then take off the calipers that hold your brake pads. Then take off the bracket that the caliper is bolted too. Then remove the rotor. I suggest replacing the pads as well and be sure to clean the rust from where the pads rest on and make sure they slide easy back and forth, this will help in a longer life for the pads. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Wayne.

How to remove front rotors on 05 jeep liberty

remove the caliper by removing 2 bolts on the inner side of the caliper (15/16 size I think) then pull the caliper off the rotor. dont remove the brake hose or let the caliper hang by the hose (set it on a bucket or use a piece of wire to tie it to an A arm) then the rotor will pull off easily.

Remove front Rotors

To remove the front rotors,you first need to support the vehicle with a jack stand.Then remove the wheel.
Once the wheel is out of the way you need to take the two bolts off of the backside of the caliper, then compress the caliper and lift it off of the rotor.
Now you should be able to easily remove the rotor from the Jeep.

2003 Jeep Liberty - recently replaced brake pads and rotors and now drivers side rear wheel will intermittently lock up which creates tremendous heat in the wheel and fries the brake pads. Have had into...

I had the same experience in the past and it turned out to be the caliper that was getting stuck and the pads would not retract away from the rotors causing friction and eventually burning your pads.

Did I replace my rotor correctly

You completed the job correctly, what holds on the rotor in place is when you install the tire and tighten the lug nuts.

Front brake rotor cant remove is there a special tool needed

welcome to fixya
chyrsler used two different set-ups on the front of these vehicles as i have recently found out. the best bet for you to do is contact your local dealership and talk to service and let them know what edition you have renegade i.e. they will be able to tell you exactly which way yours comes off. sorry cant be more help to you but this way will save you tons of time and hassles. good luck and happy motoring.

please rate this solution??

How to replace rear brake pads on 2005 Jeep Liberty

put the back of car on jack stands and secure the front tires so it does not roll and then remove the bolts off the back of the caliper there is normally two one at top and one at bottom and spray it with some kind of oil for rust and make sure you have the right size socket before you try to loosen them and once caliper is off and the old pads removed take one of the old pads and squeeze the piston on the caliper back in by using a "C" clamp and also remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder before you do this put the new ones back on and check the brake fluid and make sure it is full and then pump the brakes to make sure you have a good pedal also put some "No Squeak" brake stop on the back of the pads so they don't squeak they will have that where you buy the pads from
