    I removed the bolts, there are two clips that slide through each end of the caliper and attach the caliper to the hub, should these be tapped out somehow...they have crimps in them now stopping them from being driven out......?? Just removing the bolts isn't enough...

  • bjc8095 Aug 02, 2009

    This still doesn't do it. There are two bolts that I removed.....but the caliper assembly is attached to the hub/axle with two clips that you can drive out, I have done this before on my Fords, I am asking if there is a trick to driving the clips out as they have little tabs punched it which prevent them from pushing out. Do you just have to cut the end off the clip and throw away to get them out? I don't see any other way of getting the caliper off?

  • bjc8095 Aug 02, 2009

    Thanks, finally got the caliper off. How do you get the rotor off? It looks like there is a keeper that needs to be unscrewed? Tried to loosen it but not sure if that is the way to go......

Hi,

I have instructions to remove Per Chilton Auto repair manual:

Removal & Installation

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the rear wheel.
  3. Siphon a small amount of brake fluid from the master cylinder reservoir.
  4. Insert a small prybar through the caliper opening and pry the caliper cover (using the outboard brake pad) to bottom the piston in the caliper bore.
  5. Remove the caliper slide bolts.
  6. Remove the caliper from the anchor.

    WARNING Support the brake caliper with mechanics wire. Do not let the caliper hang by the brake hose.
  7. Remove the brake pads from the caliper.
To install:
  1. Install the brake pads onto the caliper.
  2. Lubricate the slide pin bolts with grease provided with the brake pads, or suitable silicon grease equivalent.
  3. Install the caliper on the anchor and tighten the slide pin bolts to 18 ft. lbs. (25 Nm).
  4. Install the rear wheel.
  5. Lower the vehicle.
  6. Pump the brake pedal several times until a firm pedal is obtained in order to properly seat the pads.
  7. Refill the brake fluid reservoir to the proper level.
Note - The above method would include How to Remove Caliper as well.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Hi there,



    Disconnect the brake hose from the caliper. Plug the opening in the caliper and the brake hose to prevent fluid loss and system contamination.



    Detach the parking brake cable by lifting up on one end of the cable spring clip to free the end of the cable from the lever.



    Remove the bolt and washer attaching the cable support brake to the caliper body assembly.



    Remove the sleeve bolt, then remove the caliper body assembly. Pivot the caliper body up to clear the rotor and then slide it inboard off the pin sleeve.



    Regards,

    Jeeep Brainy

How to replace rear brake rotors on 06 commander?


I Just replaced my rotors on a commander that I've owned for for 6 years. once you get the tire and brake caliper assembly off. You will need to make sure the the Parking/emergence brake is not engaged, if it is the drum brakes under the rotor will give you a very hard time. Finally if you know you are getting rid of the rotor take a good heavy hammer or mallet and wack away at the disc portion of the rotor. i would go around the rotor top to bottom, side to side till it comes loose. don't be afraid to hit it hard. I would recommend eye protection.

My 06 jeep commander makes a noise like brakes dragging when backing up first thing in the morning.


thasts because they are possibly dragging and to find it you would need to jack vehicle up and turn each wheel in turn ,it could be anything from a piston in a brake caliper to the handbrake shoes which are inside the rear brake disk
