You need to have it taken apart and cleaned. If it has drum breaks in the rear try replacing the shoes and spring hardware kit. If its pad and disc then try replacing the pads and possibly the calipers. Its very common for drum breaks to stick on this vehicle more so if it has sat for any length of time.

Rear brake grab 95 f 250 4x4.. new brakes wheel cylinders drums booster and master cylinder still locks up at low speeds any ideas???


change the hardware , and also flush the system and put in all new brake fluid, , if you've replaced all of what you describe, thats your best bet, also,, at times emergency brake cables, look like they release but they actually don't,, be sure that this isn't causing you headaches !! Fords and jeeps are known for having a single brake that will stick or not release right away , normally a rear brake, a fluid change often helps

I am working on a 2000 jeep wrangle sport. i cant get to my rear brakes because of a cover. how do i get that cover off so i can get to my rear brakes


That "cover" is the rear brake drum, part of the braking system. Jeep Sports come with drum rear brakes, not disc brakes. Once the lug nuts and tires are off, the drum will jut pull off. It may take some gentle force (hammer taps on the rear side) but there is nothing else securing it other than the rim and lug nuts.

My brakes grab on my 2000 jeep cherokee classic.


you will need to have the brakes checked, you may have a bad hose or sticking caliper, also if you have drum rear brakes then the rear drums may be out of round, this is if its the rear brakes that are grabbing, if it is then you may just need the drums resurfaced and also make sure theres no gear oil or brake fluid on the shoes. if the fronts are grabbing then you may have a bad brake hose or a bad caliper.

The wheel locked up when i was driving i smelled something burning


Was this a front or rear wheel? Did it make any unusual noise prior to the problem? If front, you could have a brake caliper that is sticking which would cause the brake to stay "on" and overheat the brakes or you could have a wheel bearing that has failed and is locked up but they usually make some noise before they fail. If rear, then usually it is brake related...again a caliper or wheel cylinder could be the culprit. It's not often that a rear bearing fails but that is possible.
If you have a brake caliper that has gone bad then I would suggest replacment of both calipers, brake pads, and flushing out the old brake fluid so you'll have good calipers and clean fluid when you are done.

2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0L front passenger brake sticks


First you must look closely at the caliper and determine if it is sticking on the slide or is the piston sticking. If it is the piston you would have to rebuild the caliper or replace the caliper. If it is the slides, you need to sand and clean all the slide contacts and lube the slide with lithium grease or never seize grease. Then you can reinstall the caliper and you will be fine. Also when checking if the piston is sticking try loosening the line and see if it retracts, if it does you may have a bad flex hose going to the caliper holding pressure on the caliper.

05 Jeep GC 5.7 Hemi AWD- low grade groaning road noise


Pulsating in the brake pedal is normally an indication of ABS problems or master cylinder problems. A quick check after a short trip may isolate this further. drive the vehicle about 1 or 2 miles, preferably on a highway, then get out and feel for heat from the tires one at a time. Be careful not to touch the hot areas of the wheels. If you feel more heat coming from one tire than the others then the Caliper may be sticking causing the problem. You also need to check your read brakes this way as well as they could also cause this problem if they are sticking.

2007 Jeep Cherokee (Liberty in USA) rear brake disk problem


If one disc is wearing down more than others, a possible cause could be a sticking brake calipar, or more pressure is going to that brake than the other ones.
