If the braket for the caliper is not obstructing the rotor and the rotor doesn't have retaining screws in between the studs then rust is what's holding your rotor on. rust builds up between the hub and the rotor hat. a good whack with a hammer will free it up, or a prybar. rotate the rotor as you work it back and forth. saftey glasses are a must. becarfull not to damage the studs too.

Remove front brake rotors


The caliper needs to be removed by removing the two bolts on the back side of the caliper. Make sure that there is no kinda clip on one of the lug bolts. If the rotor is stuck a few whacks on the rear of the rotor with a rubber mallet should pop right off. I hope its a little helpful.

Show installation procedures for front brakes on 1993 jeep cherokee ,country model. size of nut that holds front brake rotor in place


Don't need a diagram for this... Leave the center nut alone! To replace the pads and remove the rotors, remove the two bolts that are on the inboard side of the calipers. Can't remember the size but there are small, somewhere around 10mm to 1/2". Once you get them off, remove the pads, then re-install the inner pad and using a large "c" clamp, drive the piston back into the caliper.
Once the caliper has been removed, it should just about fall off.
If not, use lots of wd40 or other solvent around where it meets the hub and into the wheel studs where they pass through the rotor. Use a heavy mallet or even a hammer to loosen them up.
Rotors are inexpensive and generally cutting them unless they are not very old is not recommended, so don't bother saving them unless it's absolutely necessary.
Be careful threading the caliper bolts back in. They must be in straight as they are very narrow and easily cross threaded.Always make sure that the slides they pass through are not frozen ane are properly lubed. Install is the reverse of removal.

HOW TO CHANGE brakes on a 1996 jeep grand cherokee. I get the 2 bolts off but I can not seem to get the calipers off. What am I missing?


The rotors are grooved and you need to spread the brake pads from the rotor with a screw driver, if the caliper doesn't move, open the bleeder valve and spread the pads from the rotor, then you will need to bleed that caliper

How to replace rear brake pads on 2004 Jeep Cherokee 4x4


take it to a mechanic....;) I have a 2003 jeep grand cherokee 4 wheel drive V8. there probably is not much difference between year models. frist thing remove the back tire you will see the caliper and rotor. check the rotor if it has deep groves on the front or back you will need to bring it in to have it turned or replaced if it is still smooth it should be ok. remove the caliper by taking the two bolts off the back of the caliper. using a pice of wire hang the caliper so it isn't dangling from the brake line. Now is the time to replace rotor if needed .Get a pair of vice grips crimp off the brake line so any trash in the caliper doesn't get into the brake system (if you let the contaminants get into the brake system it can cause costly repairs to the abs system). open up the bleeder valve most of the time close to where the brake line goes into the caliper and usually has a rubber cap. open bleeder valve, take a c-clamp place on inner brake pad and outside of caliper tighten until caliper is all of the way open close bleeder valve. replace brake pads put caliper back on recommend using lock tight on bolts holding caliper on snug fasteners but do not over tighten, lock tight will keep bolts from backing out. do the other side the same way. pull up emergency brake to and pump brake pedal to adjust brakes. bleed brakes and you are done

How do i take a rear rotor off 2004 jeep cherokee


Remove the caliper slide bolts and take the caliper loose and hang caliper with a wire to something. Don't let the weight of the caliper to be supported by the brake hose.

Next, remove and discard the O-ring securing the rotor to the axle studs, and remove the rotor. Hope this helped and good luck.
