This is a walk through for a 1993 2wd.

1. Jack up and remove tire
2. Remove 2 brake caliper mounting bolts
3. Remove caliper and hang out of way with wire
4. Remove rotor, if stuck hit on all sides with a rubber mallet until it breaks loose.
5. Install new rotor
6. Remove old pads from caliper
7. Using a c-clamp and a block of wood against caliper piston, compress piston until it is flush w/caliper
8. Install new pads in same location as old pads
9. Reinstall caliper, may have to nudge it into place with rubber mallet
10. Reinstall tire.

note: There are no bearings to grease. You must replace the entire hub assembly if yours are worn.

I have a 83 Bronco 351w I am doing the brakes and the passenger side rotor needs to be replaced can someone walk me through this thanks


Personally I would replace both rotors to prevent a future brake imbalance.

* chock rear wheels, raise front of vehicle and place on stands.

* remove wheels, remove brake calliper and bracket assemblies.

* remove bearing hubs from axles, via removal of bearing adjustment nut

*remove hub seals, clean and inspect bearings, repack with HT bearing grease.

* the brake rotor bolts to the rear of the hub, you will have to remove and replace rotor to hubs, make sure all bolts are thread locked with loctite 263 and tensioned to spec.

* pack hub with grease, install seals, fitt hub assembly and adjust wheel bearing preload, install new split pins.

* fitt brake calliper and brackets, fit new brake pads,

* fitt wheels lower vehicle, test brake for function

Hope this helps..

Just changed the front pads on my 2004 Expedition due to a squeaking during brake application. I noticed the pads I pulled off still had a lot of pad on them. So I took the rotors to be mic'd and I...


  • A few things here.
  • Pads can look good and still squeak, especially the dirt cheap ones. Quality pads are always advised. Ceramic if possible.
  • You took the rotors in so I assumed that they took the required 3 spot caliper minimum test and looked for color change and worn spots/grooves.
  • Brake dust is a huge cause of squeaking of brakes. Brake clean does a great job of clearing that off of the rotor etc.
  • Sometimes that shudder grease (should be used every time a new pad is installed) can ware off. Did you reapply that yet? $2usd for a little packet of it. Apply it to the back of the pad.
  • Did you check to see if the metal pad tracks had grease on them still? When the caliper pushes out on the pad it moves on a metal track to reach the rotor. Check and reapply if necessary.
  • Sometimes pads can get a rough spot from normal ware that starts digging into the rotor. A little fine grit sand paper and a quick gentle resurfacing will fix that quick.
  • One of those will be your problem. Check all I have listed. And make sure you are positive you are checking the right brakes. Brake sounds can be deceiving.
  • hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

WHy dose my brake pedal push back and make a grinding noise


Look through the openings in your front wheels and look at the front rotors-are they gouged up? You are probably running metal-to-metal, pads to rotors.
Chances are real good your rotors will have to be replaced along with new pads, but if you catch it early enough you might be able to have them machined, although nowadays that is hardly easy to get done and the savings usually is not as significant as it once was.

Show installation procedures for front brakes on 1993 jeep cherokee ,country model. size of nut that holds front brake rotor in place


Don't need a diagram for this... Leave the center nut alone! To replace the pads and remove the rotors, remove the two bolts that are on the inboard side of the calipers. Can't remember the size but there are small, somewhere around 10mm to 1/2". Once you get them off, remove the pads, then re-install the inner pad and using a large "c" clamp, drive the piston back into the caliper.
Once the caliper has been removed, it should just about fall off.
If not, use lots of wd40 or other solvent around where it meets the hub and into the wheel studs where they pass through the rotor. Use a heavy mallet or even a hammer to loosen them up.
Rotors are inexpensive and generally cutting them unless they are not very old is not recommended, so don't bother saving them unless it's absolutely necessary.
Be careful threading the caliper bolts back in. They must be in straight as they are very narrow and easily cross threaded.Always make sure that the slides they pass through are not frozen ane are properly lubed. Install is the reverse of removal.

How to remove front rotor


remove front wheel, undo the retaining bolts from the brake caliper and remove it, do not undo the fluid line that runs to the caliper or you will have to bleed the brakes, just tie the caliper up under the guard somewhere
remove the metal cap from the middle of the rotor, remove the retaining pin from the nut and remove the wheel bearing from the stub axle, the rotor should now be free to remove from the car.
fit the new rotor, grease the bearings if required and tighten to remove any slop in the rotor, once that is done you can put the retaining pin back in place.
You may have to press the caliper piston in to get enough clearance to fit the brake pads over the new rotor, this can be done with a "G" clamp, just remove the outer pad, place a small piece of wood over the face of the inner pad where the "G" clamp is going to sit to protect the pad and wind the clamp to compress the piston, replace the outer pad and fit back into the caliper before you put the caliper over the rotor and bolt it on
hope this helps

Noise coming from front brakes or wheel ,i change brake pads


Did you have the rotors turned? Did you check for rotor runout? Did you remove all rust from hub face and rotor mounting surface? Did you remove rust from caliper or pad slides? Lube all caliper and pad sliding surfaces? Are the pads application specific? Did you flush and bleed the fluid? Did you torque the wheels properly?

Brake shutter on 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee - new rotors and pads


You got shutter ......do you mean shudder when braking and if so the problem with your brakes are that the pads dont work well with the rotors (dont care what the makers say) just see if you can get your self a set of PRIME disc pads and fit them to the front and make sure that the whole unit are bolted on tight and no movement in wheel bearings....

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.
