Good chance of caliper to piston issues like you describe, the pistons must move freely (freely a relative term). Easiest to replace with rebuilt calipers. You need perfect brakes. Consider replacing rubber lines at the same time, pretty easy during caliper job and DO NOT let M/C run low on fluid during this process.

Here I go again. My wheels on my 2003 Grand Cherokee has started burning again. What is the problem?


abs modulator, is bad. sad how your shops don't do tests. To find this... your brakes are dragging, so, what cause that? abs or master cylinder issues. has someone messed with there of the master cylinder, the rear piston clearances? above the pedal. I'd find a real ASE shop or top brake shop in town. tell them brakes drag and your story.'


one caliper all by self can drag,
say the guide pins seize or piston.
sound like its no just one brake dragging
but a real shop tests and proves all that.

it could be,, check the brake line going to the brake and see if it has play ,, also, it could be the caliper isn't flowing , once they get overheated the grease in them ( the slide pins) tend to get stuck ,, pull the caliper apart and clean all the old grease of and re lube them

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.
  9. Remove the brake pads from the caliper. Fig. 2: Installing the inward brake pad on the front caliper pistons - 1999-01 Grand Cherokee 93026g92.gif
    To install:
  10. Position the brake pads onto the caliper.
  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.
  15. Before driving the vehicle, pump the brakes several times to seat the pads.
  16. Install the wheels.

You still have air in the brakes,start at the master cylinder,then the rear,right wheel,left rear,and right front,then the left front.Make sure the calipers are releasing completely ,if they are not,then a brake hose could be bad.

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.

Front brake pad replacement


black caliper and black caliper bracket = ATE (Teves), the other color is Akebono. To replace pads, use a screwdriver to stick into slot to pry caliper open a bit. Remove 2 caliper pins (under plastic caps on rubber caliper boots.) Lift caliper from rotor. Remove old pads. Wipe caliper anti-squeak onto back of new pads, and place pads into caliper. Replace caliper onto rotor and bracket. Insert pins and tighten securely (you can lubricate the pins) Replace plastic boot covers. Install wheels. Lower vehicle.
