Question about 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Normally, to remove a front rotor you remove tire, then must remove the caliper.
To remove caliper, there are two screws that the caliper is secured with that are accessed from the back side of the caliper. Unscrew these, pull all of the way out. The caliper should then be free to be slid out of it's position and off of the rotor. You'll need to support the caliper somehow. Most magazine show using heavy wire to hang it, I often take a small bucket upside down to set it on so the brake hose is not stressed.
Most front wheel drive & I think 4-WD vehicles, the rotor will slip right off. If not and there is a grease cup covering the center of the hub, will need to pop this off with a screw driver. Then remove the retaining clip that is inserted thru the threaded shaft to prevent the nut that is exposed from working it's way loose. Remove the nut, and now the rotor will come right off.
Re-assembling this nut at the right torgue is a key to getting everything back together properly. Too tight, you burn up the bearings and hurt fuel economy. Too loose and the tire wobbles, excessive wear, lot of issues.

i actually removed my 2 front seats very easily as a novice. There really is only i think 4 bolts that need to come out 2 in front and 2 in back. If i can remember correctly i believe it was a larger metric size. Although i dont have power seats, if you do just look for the clip connector and disengage

Fuse # 20, located in the Junction Block (interior, drivers side). This is a ten amp fuse.
Read the information at the above site. The TSB (technical service bulletin) may be of interest to you.

You need to remove all the skrews from the door. Normaly there is one in the handle of the door, one behind the in door lach handel and one under the bump out for the arm rest on the door. Than you need to take a flat head skrew driver slowly priying the panel off. There are plastic clips on the backside of the panel it is ok if you brake a few.

To remove the rotor you need to first remove the two bolts holding the caliper on. You need to make sure that you have something to put the caliper on or a piece of string to tie it up so that it's not hanging. After that, you need to remove the two bolts holding the caliper bracket on. You will have to get to this by looking behind the caliper (it's pretty easy to find). Once you have removed the caliper bracket, you will be able to just pull the caliper off. I have a 99 jeep and this is exactly how I did it just a couple of weeks ago. Let me know if once you have taken the caliper and bracket off if it doesn't just pull off. I assume the 01 and 99 will be the same. If it doesn't pull off, your jeep is a little different and you will have a hub nut in the middle of the rotor that you need to take off first. Again, I don't think that will be the case but if it is you can "rent" for free, the correct size socket from Auto Zone to take the hub nut off. Let me know if you have further questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

Front drivers side could be a bad cap, lower hose or the radiator itself. You need to look carefully and find the leak source. Steam travels and isn't a good indication of where the actual leak is coolant will run down and take any path it can to reach the ground. Therefore, you need to follow it back to where it is coming from, then deal with it. Your water pump can also leak and run down the lower hose. there is a small hole in the pump behind the pulley. If you see coolant coming from there the pump needs to be replaced. Sealers will not work on hoses or pump leaks so don't bother using them for that.
Good luck...don't forget this is free, so rate answers!
I will answer follow-up questions too!
