Take the two bolts off that hold the brake caliper, then take the two bolts out that hold the caliper bracket, then all that should be holding on the rotor is rust and adhesion caused by heat. Tapping on the outside of the rotor with a hammer should loosen it up so you can take it off........ The only exception is on some vehicles assembled at some plants in order to keep the rotor on the wheel they put a screw in the rotor that is between the holes the wheel bolts to. It is usually a phillips head and the head of the bolt is about 3/4-1" in diameter. If you have one of those on the rotor, you will either need to heat that up or get a impact driver to get it out. And then throw it away because it has no purpose other then to help out the assembly line workers.

If not phillips screw, then tap it good with a hammer till it loosens up.

Remove the wheel, remove the caliper and caliper bracket (there is no caliper bracket if it is a floating caliper) and the rotors should slide right off, if not smack em with a soft faced hammer om the braking surface and they should pop off

    *correction*

    My first post may be wrong you may have to remove the entire hub lockout assembly which involves a few screws, the axle nut, a few retaining rings another nut, etc. then the inner bearing and the rotor should slide off the cv shaft

Brake shutter on 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee - new rotors and pads


You got shutter ......do you mean shudder when braking and if so the problem with your brakes are that the pads dont work well with the rotors (dont care what the makers say) just see if you can get your self a set of PRIME disc pads and fit them to the front and make sure that the whole unit are bolted on tight and no movement in wheel bearings....

How to take front rotors off 2006 jeep grand Cherokee


Remove the brake calipers and the rotors should come right off. If not, spray solvent into wheel stud holes and around the rotor/hub parting line and use a rubber mallet on the rotor (You can also use a piece of 2x4 and lay it across the rotor and strike it with a regular hammer.) From time to time some manufacturers use a flat screw installed in the rotor to hub face, to keep rotor on while going down the assembly line...check to make sure there aren't any on yours.(though I don't remember ever seeing any on Jeeps)

Replacing front rotors and pads 2006 grand cherokee


Why would you put tape on the rotors when doing brakes? Once calipers are removed, rotors come right off. Never saw any seal on rotors and don't know what a seal would do there....Unless it's put there on assembly line to keep rotor from falling off? I wouldn't be concerned.

How do the rear rear rotars come off a 2007 jeep grand cherokee 2wd


On Rear Disc Brake Rotor Assemblies there is e-brake components inside and may be stuck to the inside of the rotor, try turning the rotor and tap on the backside of the rotor with a hammer staying away from the backing plates, if you cant get the inner shoes to come loose from the inner rotor you may have to have a brake specialist free up the assembly.

Nov. 94 Grand Cherokee Jeep no back brakes


I bet you still have air back there. If you didn't bleed the system after the master you need to do that. Bench bleeding a master doesn't always work.Also badly out of adjustment rear brakes can act the same way.
