    Did you open the bleader screws when you pushed the pistons in?

Likely you need to PRE BLEED the m/c. Get a kit from parts stores that hook up where brake lines go, and reroute into the m/c reservoir, then do not let m/c run low on fluid during subsequent bleeding, or start over.

I need to know how to change the front brakes on a 94 jeep grand cherokee laredo.


  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely using jackstands. Remove the wheel(s) on the side to be worked on.

NOTE: Removing a small amount of brake fluid from the master cylinder using a turkey baster

Fig. 6: Slide the caliper off the brake rotor

  1. Drain a small amount of the brake fluid from the front reservoir using a suction gun or a turkey baster.
  2. Place a C-clamp on the caliper so that the solid end contacts the back of the caliper and the screw end contacts the metal part of the outboard brake pad.
  3. Tighten the clamp until the caliper moves far enough to force the piston to the bottom of the piston bore. This will back the brake pads off of the rotor surface to facilitate the removal and installation of the caliper assembly

Fig. 12: Removing the anti-rattle clip

  1. Remove the C-clamp.
Do not push down on the brake pedal or the piston and brake pads will return to their original positions up against the rotor.
  1. Remove the caliper mounting bolts. Tilt the top of the caliper outward and lift it off the rotor.
  2. Hold the anti-rattle clip against the caliper anchor plate and remove the outboard brake pad.
  3. Remove the inboard pad and the anti-rattle clip. Be sure that the support spring is removed with the inboard pad.

Fig. 15: Piston extension on new and worn brake pads

  1. Use a piece of wire to support the caliper so that no tension is placed on the brake hose. Do not allow the caliper to hang by the brake hose.
To install:
  1. Clean all the mounting holes and bushing grooves in the caliper ears. Clean the mounting bolts. Replace the bolts if they are corroded or if the threads are damaged. Wipe the inside of the caliper clean, including the exterior of the dust boot. Inspect the dust boot for cuts or cracks and for proper seating in the piston bore. If evidence of fluid leakage is noted, the caliper should be rebuilt.
Do not use abrasives on the bolts in order not to destroy their protective plating. You should not use compressed air to clean the inside of the caliper, as it may unseat the dust boot seal.
  1. If not already in place, attach the support spring to the inboard brake pad.
  2. Install the anti-rattle clip on the trailing end of the inboard pad's anchor plate. The split end of the clip must face away from the rotor.
  3. Install the inboard pad in the caliper. The pad must lay flat against the piston.
  4. Install the outboard pad in the caliper while holding the anti-rattle clip.
  5. With the pads installed, position the caliper over the rotor.
Before securing the caliper, ensure the brake hose is not twisted, kinked or touching any chassis parts.
  1. Lubricate the caliper pins and bushings with silicone grease. Line up the mounting holes in the caliper and the support bracket and insert the mounting bolts. Make sure that the bolts pass under the retaining ears on the inboard shoes. Push the bolts through until they engage the holes of the outboard pad and caliper ears. Thread the bolts into the support bracket and tighten them to 7-15 ft. lbs. (9-20 Nm).
CAUTION On models with manual/power brakes, pump the pedal until the caliper pistons and brake shoes are seated. On models with anti-lock brakes, turn the ignition ON and allow the booster pump to build pressure. Pump the brake pedal until the shoes are seated and the indicator lights turn off.
  1. Fill the master cylinder with brake fluid and pump the brake pedal to seat the pads.
  2. Install the wheel assembly and lower the vehicle. Check the level of the brake fluid in the master cylinder and fill as necessary.

Remember to rate this, good luck.

Vibration in rear of vehicle when braks are applied


I believe that the rear discs are warped or the tires are out of round when braking. More likely, the discs. --- The following are the instructions for replacing the front and rear pads for the front/back rotors. 1999-01 Grand Cherokee Front
  1. Drain 2?3 of the brake fluid from the front reservoir. Use the bleeder screw at the front outlet port to drain the fluid. If equipped with anti-lock brakes, relieve the system pressure.
  2. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  3. Remove the wheels.
  4. Insert a small prybar through the caliper opening and pry the caliper (using the outboard brake pad) to bottom the pistons in the caliper bore. NOTE: This will back the brake pads off of the rotor surface to facilitate the removal and installation of the caliper assembly.
  5. Pry the caliper support spring out of the caliper.
  6. Remove both caliper slide pin bushing caps and slide pins.
  7. Lift the caliper from the anchor.
  8. Using a piece of mechanics wire, support the caliper so there is not tension on the brake hose.

  11. Position the caliper into place on the anchor.
  12. Coat the caliper slide pins with silicone grease and torque them to 21-30 ft. lbs. (29-41 Nm). Install the slide pin bushing caps.
  13. Install the caliper support spring in the top of the caliper under the anchor; then, install the other end into the lower caliper hole. NOTE: Hold the spring in the caliper hole with your thumb while prying the spring end out and under the anchor.
  14. Fill the master cylinder with fluid and bleed the brake system.

There are no brakes on my 1997 jeep cherokee the brakes go all the way to the floor already replaced the brake pads


Hi:
Your problem is related to the master cylinder, wheel cylinders, or the brake lines. First check the brake fluid level. Check the inside of all four wheels and look for signs of brake fluid leakage. If you don't see any leaks, and the brake fluid reservoir is full, then you most likely have a bad brake master cylinder. If you do find a leak at any wheel, and fluid level is down, then concentrate your repair efforts in the area of the leak.

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.

Changed front brake pads. brake pedal goes to floor. no brakes


Something doesn't sound right, you shouldn't have to remove the brake line to install pads. Did you have to do this on both sides? Do the new pads and the old pads look the same? Did you get the caliper on crooked? Just recheck your work first before replacing more parts. When you install the caliper, You have to hook the pad on one side first before you slide it over the rotor.
