SOURCE: 1993 Jeep Cherokee Front Rotor & Pad Replacement

This is a walk through for a 1993 2wd.

1. Jack up and remove tire
2. Remove 2 brake caliper mounting bolts
3. Remove caliper and hang out of way with wire
4. Remove rotor, if stuck hit on all sides with a rubber mallet until it breaks loose.
5. Install new rotor
6. Remove old pads from caliper
7. Using a c-clamp and a block of wood against caliper piston, compress piston until it is flush w/caliper
8. Install new pads in same location as old pads
9. Reinstall caliper, may have to nudge it into place with rubber mallet
10. Reinstall tire.

note: There are no bearings to grease. You must replace the entire hub assembly if yours are worn.

SOURCE: Intructions to replace front pads and rotors Corolla

take off tires. two 14mm bolts behind the caliper. loosen the bottom 1. tilt the caliper up. slide caliper inward of the car, let caliper hang. two 17mm bolts behind the bracket take it off. and rotors should slide out. if rotor seized spray WD40 and hammer the rotor. careful don't hammer the stud it will screw up the thread.

SOURCE: location of cabin air filter

It can have a cabin air filter, but most vehicles ship without it. Either way, you can access the cabin air filter housing by opening the glove box all the way (squeeze the sides so it clears the stops).

The filters are around $15 at the dealer.

Whether or not there's a cabin filter installed, make sure you're also following Chrysler's recommendations in the owner's manual—running the air on recirculate all the time will encourage mold and bacteria to grow.

Good luck

Feels like brakes are vibrating. just wondering what the approximate cost will be to fix.


Your rotors are warped. Depends on if rotors can be turned or have to be replaced. Turrn rotors would be under $50. New rotors--check price online.

Brake rotors are only changed/replaced when they are severly warped and can't be machined true again without making them to thin, the min. thickness is cast on the rotor edge, there is no regualar replacement mileage like changing the oil

How to install the front license plate on the 2008 Jeep Compass?


There should be guide holes in the bumper for you to mount the plate. It's recommended to mount a backing piece and then mount the place onto the backing for sturdiness. If there are no holes, you can just screw two holes into the bumper

Why did my air bags not go off in my accident..have an 2008 jeep compass and was hit in the front passenger corner


It depends on the speed you were going, if you were going less than about 20 miles, (older models it was 17, but I am not sure ofr the compass), also it depends of the angle of impact. Once it is beyond a fairly direct hit, an air bag can do more damage than not haveing it deploy.
