Where is my crank positioning sensor and how do I replace it?

On the VM 3.1 engine The crankshaft sensor is hidden down behind the turbo . you will have to remove the heat shield and the 2 heater pips and a few brackets . it is then just posable to reach the 2 bolts that hold it in place [ you will need long arms and a 1/4 inch drive ratchet with a 8 mm socket ]

How do you replace the rear axle collar?

Remove the wheel. Push the brake caliper piston back with a prybar or heavy screwdriver to make clearance to remove the caliper. Remove the entire caliper assembly by removing the 2 large bolts with an 18 mm socket and breaker bar.(they are tight!). Remove the rotor. Remove the 4 nuts on the axle retaining ring located behind backing plate using a 9/16" wrench. Attach a slide hammer to the wheel studs on the axle and hammer the axle out. Put the axle in an arbor press and press the bearings off of the axle. Press new bearings, seal and collar back onto the axle. Reassemble the rotor, caliper, etc. This can be done at home if you have access to a slide hammer and arbor press and some basic hand tools.

What tool is used to remove the brake pads for Jeep Grand Cherokee 2001 8 cylinder 4x4

10 mm socket to remove the caliper slide bolts, a decent sized screwdriver to pry the caliper up off the rotor and a large "c" clamp to drive the piston back into the caliper housing so the new pads will fit over the rotor. Use an old pad over the caliper piston when driving it back in so you don't damage it, be careful not to pinch the piston boot under the new pad and make sure the slides move and that you use some grease on the slide bolts when putting them back in. Also be careful not to cross-thread the pins when re-installing. After you have finished, step on the brake a few times to get the pads into position and remove any excessive clearance. If you don't open the hydraulic system, no bleeding is necessary.
Rears are more complicated so get a haynes or chilton manual for that.

How do you adjust 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee front wheel bearings?

1) Jack up the front of the truck ( or the affected side).
2) Remove the wheel.
3) Remove the brake caliper, pads, and rotor.
4) Remove the axle nut. I use a 36mm socket.
5) Remove the three hub bolts (from the back of the spindle) ea.:
5a) You will need a 1/2 12 point inch ratcheting box wrench and larger
box wrench as I use or a 1/2 inch 12 pt. socket and ratchet with
long handle for rich folks who can afford such luxuries.
5b) Force the bolt to loosen 1/4 turn, then retighten. Spray the threads
with penetrating oil, then loosen as far as it will go (not much) easily.
Now curse about Mopar and rust. Ask a sailor for help if needed. Wire wheel or
5c) Go to 5b) until the bolt is out.
6) Use a sharp chisel and hammer to draw the hub bearing out of the spindle. Try not to use the chisel near the bolt holes.
7) Use a sanding disc remove any burrs from the hub mating surface of
the spindle.
8) Use wheel bearing greasre or moly grease to coat the splines of the
axle, the big hole in the spindle, and the threads of the bolts.
9) Put it all together.
10) If you got lazy and didn't do step #7, get a wheel alignment, then
drive for about 5k miles, repeat steps 1-9, then get a wheel
alignment again.
