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.

Hi i just replaced a brake booster in 1999 jeep grand cherokee because of vacuum leak .but now i ll have to push down to brake .how to make it little hard ?


Sounds like air in the brake system. Will need to bleed the brakes to remove the air. May possibly have to bleed the master cylinder as well.

Cant find engine number on 2001 v8 jeep grand cherokee


On V-8 engines, the serial number is stamped on a machined pad on the left front corner of the cylinder block.

On the six cylinder engine, build date information can be found stamped on a machined pad located on the right side of the cylinder block between the No. 2 and 3 cylinders.

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

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.
