How hard is it to change the rear rotor and brakes on a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.0 6 cylinder.4 wheel drive? It's been making a howling noise in the rear.Hopefully it's that and not the rear end. It has 90.000 miles.

    No the noise don't quit when I let off the gas. Might be better off getting the bearings and bushings fixed instead of getting another used rear end.Like I said this only has 90.000 miles on it.

  • Robert Greimann May 21, 2011

    What's the cost for that?

Does the howling go away or change when you let your foot off the gas? Brakes would make more of a scrape or grind and usually when the brakes are applied. if this is in fact rear disc, they should have a seperate set up for just the parking brake using a drum brake brake set up that uses the inside of the rotor as a drum. Inspect your brakes and look for any abnormal wear patterns or anything dragging and out of place and let me know. It wouldn't be uncommon for the axle to be making the noise. If that does turn out to be the case, salvage yards are an option. You can also locate a trusted and reputable transmission shop in your area that may replace the bearing/bushing cauing the howl. If you need the manual for repair, let me know and I can email the proper sections to you.

Bad rear axle bearing and seal on a 2000 jeep grand


the bearing does not always have to be really bad for the seal to fail. Centrifugal force will throw axle grease outward where it gets on the rotor. That can make it feel like the rotor is out of round. If grease got on the brake pads I'd replace them and perhaps even the rotor. As far as the caliper being frozen, possible....check it out when you have it apart. You can have more than one shoe untied at the same time. Not always, but it can happen.
When replacing the seal make sure you put some grease on the lip before putting the axle back in. by doing that it won't fail from dry running before the diff lube reaches it.

How to take front rotors off 2006 jeep grand Cherokee


Remove the brake calipers and the rotors should come right off. If not, spray solvent into wheel stud holes and around the rotor/hub parting line and use a rubber mallet on the rotor (You can also use a piece of 2x4 and lay it across the rotor and strike it with a regular hammer.) From time to time some manufacturers use a flat screw installed in the rotor to hub face, to keep rotor on while going down the assembly line...check to make sure there aren't any on yours.(though I don't remember ever seeing any on Jeeps)

check with a parts house and see if both vehicles have the same part # for rear rotors. If they do you will be fine. Don't try "adapting" stuff in brake systems...It's difficult and dangerous. Rotors even new are not that expensive!
