Question about Cars & Trucks
I believe Metric Hex Driver-- for the calipers
You will just have to look at the bolts or fasteners
& figure out the size
The back will be different
You may have to go to the Snap-On truck to find the tools
Why not have the rotors machined?
They should last 3 to 4 years with one or two machining

You will need a jack and 2 jack stands to get the front wheels off the ground (break the lug nuts loose before lifting) and support the vehicle.
You will need the lug nut wrench (or a 1/2 inch breaker bar and 21 MM socket) to remove the wheel.
You will need a 14 MM wrench to remove the caliper bolts and possibly a flat head screwdriver to pry the caliper off of the pads if it is difficult.
You will need a big pair of channel lock pliers to compress the piston back into the caliper bore to allow room for the new pads.
You may need a hammer to hit the rotors to break them loose if they are rusted into place on the hub- a couple good shots should break them free if needed.
You will also need a wire brush and some good brake grease (available at any parts store). You will want to see any place that the pads contact a stationary surface and clean this area and apply a film of the grease to these points to prevent binding and uneven pad wear.
Hope this is helpful!!

Hello, one "trick" is to grab a big hammer and hit the face of the rotor (the part that goes on the hub between the lug studs, NOT the brake pads ride on) several times. A lot of the vehicles I have done this with you really have to whack between the lugs pretty hard and a lot of times. Just make sure you don't hit the lug studs.

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??
