Could be repaired at dealer for free..THESE JEEP LIBERTY MODELS have a recall issue for the lower control arm assemblies(lower ball joints) this isnt a brake issue but brake tear down required for control arm replacement so a good tech will correct during re-assembly, good luck and happy motoring ____O^-o

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

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.

You need to have the front rotors turned or replaced. Take a set of dial calipers and measure the rotor thickness. compare that to the specs on the rotor and that will let you know if you can turn them. Put new pads on and make sure to lube the slider pins.

I replaced both brake pads and rotors on both the front and rear of my 2007 Jeep Liberty but when I brake, especially from a higher spped such as an exit ramp, there is shaking/pulsating in the brake...


The brake rotors need to be cut or replaced. There are high spots and low spots on the rotor, and due to this, the brake pedal will pulse when the brakes are applied. When ever brakes are replaced, the rotors should also be serviced.

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.

How to replace reak brake rotors on Jeep Liberty


Replace rear rotors on 04 liberty.
Remove tire & wheel
Remove brake caliper, tie up out of way.
Back off e-brake shoe adjustment.
Remove factory spring clip from lugs (2places)
This is the crude part....
After attempting to pull off disc/drum with puller....I got pretty sick of it. Understand this is in the Northeast with lots of salt on the roads in winter. Needless to say there is a ridge of rust around the inside edge of the e-brake surface. Any more pressure and I was afraid of damage to the e-brake shoe asembly. I then took a small grinder with a cut off wheel and cut the disc thru (used space where caliper usually sits). Also cut nearly through the face between 2 lugs. You can't quite get thru the back corner at the disc. Since the material is cast iron it will crack when you drive a wedge in the slot cut in the disc. This opens the housing around the shoes and it slides off easily. The cutting operation took less than10 mins, alot less than the puller with hammer assist!
I know this is a bit "unorthodox" to say the least, however the object is to remove the old junk disc safely and as quickly as possible, without harming the e-brake parts inside.
Install new parts in reverse order, new pads go in easy after squeezing the caliper piston back with a c clamp as is the normal procedure.

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
