Remove both rear wheels and drums...only take apart one side and use the opposite side as a reference to put it back together. It's a fairly simple system and shouldn't be confusing at all. Short lining goes to the front, clean the adjuster and lube thread with white lube..

When i press on brakes i can hear a grinding noise coming from he front end, what could it be?


Brake pads are worn. That noise is the sound of the backing plate for the brake pads hitting the rotors. You will need to replace the pads and probablt the rotors. When the brakes go metal to metal like that it typically destroys the rotor.

Brakes suddenly started grinding on one side. can see scraping on plate that surrounds brake


YOU NEED TO CHANGE OUT THE BREAK PADS, ALSO YOU MOST LIKELY DESTROIED YOUR ROATER...Do not just change out only one roater even if the other side looks good. overtime the roaters where down if you replace only one side it will pull to that side.....After you have new ones installed if the truch feals like it is pulling all the time to the same side you are haveing probleams with then most likely you will need a new wheel cylender also....Good luck I hope this helps

2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee loud grinding sound when braking


It would be hard to guess at you electrical problems but get your brakes checked.It sounds like your pads have worn down to metal on metal.Very dangerous and can get expensive to fix the longer you leave it.A visual inspection can tell within minutes if this is the problem.If this isn't the problem the 2nd most common thing is a loose brake caliper or caliper mount.A friend with some mechanical knowledge will be able to check the brake pad thickness very easily and quickly with just a torch.Hope this helps

Squealing or clicking sound and then next day grinding sound louder when you take foot off accelerator clicking sounds from right side grinding underneath 2002 grand cherokee


Squealing usually indicates that the brakes are in need of replacement. There is a small piece of metal that as the brake pads wear comes in contact with the metal rotor. When the pads get close to being worn away the tab touches the rotor and it squeals. The tab can also click.
When the pads are worn away completely the metal backing comes in contact with the rotor and it grinds. Grinding is bad. It means the car's brakes are metal to metal. This will cause damage to the rotors resulting in an even more costly brake job.
You should have it taken care of ASAP.
I hope this helps.

Grinding noise when turning left


brake pads metal to metal, brake rotor hitting rear metal dust shield, wheel bearing or CV joint. any of these can cause a grinding noise, the brake pads would be the loudest.

Jeep grand cherokee constant grinding noise, and but in reverse with full right lock it feels like it is grabbing the o/s rear wheel and a heavy deep grind comes from it! thanks in advance


As weird as it may sound, i'd check the power steering fluid. An empty power steering fluid tank will make the power steering grind and make weird noises, and having it at full lock will worsen the noise and have no fluid to build pressure it might starting jumping the steering around a bit. If the power steering is OK then you will need to take the rear drums apart to check for any broken retainer springs preventing the pads from returning into place and it will keep braking and grinding. Could also just be some rust or a broken off metal part in the drum also, but either way you will need to take the drums off and inspect the springs, clips and pads to ensure everything is OK and nothing stays jammed into braking position. Also be sure to verify the rear brake cylinders in the drums, as it may also be them that don't return to the initial position and keep the brakes on.
