Use a C clamp and slowly force the piston[s] back take it easy and slow. you should not have to applie more than a little turning force to get it compressed if alot of twisting wont budge the piston then it is stuck in the bore or cocked to one side. center c clamp in center of the piston to prevent it getting cocked

I took my 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo to the Technician for a tune-up. He put new parts Brake Pads, Brake Shoes. Even I bought four new tires. Now my vehicle doesn't stop at all. The brake pedal goes...


Sounds like the master cylinder is full of air.Somebody let it run dry when doing a pad change.(maybe)Did the calipers get rebuilt or were the pistons just pushed back in?
Brakes are a sealed unit.If there is no leaks,then you must start at the 1st point of operation.The master system.Hope this helps.

I need to change the rear brake pads on a 2004 jeep cherokee


first put the car on jack stands secure the front tires so it does not roll second take the bolts out behind the caliper and once off you will be able to remove the old pads; keep one to use to press the cylinder back in using a "C" clamp so you can put the new ones on also remove a little of the brake fluid from the master cylinder before doing this so you do not damage the check valve and once everything is back together be sure to put brake fluid back in and pump the brakes before driving and if needed for additional information try www.autozone.com to see if your vehicle is listed

Front brakes locking up


Sounds like the front brake hoses went bad on you. Fluid goes into the calipers and builds up pressure, and applies the brakes, because the fluid can't come back out of the calipers. Usually when hoses go, they tear on the inside, creating a one way valve type of flap. I hope that this helped. Best wishes to ya.

I cant get the new back brake pad on my 98 jeep grand cherokee


If the caliper is damaged it will not allow the piston to be retracted enough to put the pad in, use a caliper compression tool, available at most parts stores to compress it, otherwise the caliper may need to be replaced.

How to put back brake drums?


dont understand, why take them off in the first place ? refitting is the reverse of what youve done ?!
unless of course you have applied pressure to the brake pedal which will knock up the auto adjusters (if fitted ?)then the drums wont go on till you reset them. more info required
