Terrathrax: Thanks for the video. Gives me some confidence heading into my rotor replacement.
1aauto: You have the Akebono set up with the clips. After you remove the clips, the rest of it should be fairly similar to the video shown. We carry great brake pad ans rotor kits for your 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee on our website with free shipping. 1aauto.com 888-844-9939
ChildHoodHorror: I have a 99 Jeep grand Cherokee Laredo and it looks a lot different than this
1aauto: HI De, We didn't have that set up on this Jeep. If you haven't taken apart the other side yet you should be able to refer to it, to see how it goes together. When working on brakes its a good idea to do one side at a time so you can referance the side that's together if you need to. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
1aauto: Thanks Sam, we carry tons of repair parts for Jeeps with free shipping on our website 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
1aauto: HI Sam, Thanks for watching.
Sam Davis: i freaking love you guys....have used your video's for my wife's honda to replace her alternator and ignition coil. now used them to replace calipers and rotors on my 2002 jeep! love you guys!
1aauto: If it's more of a squeek noise you could try to put some anti-squeek lubricant on the back of the brake pad. It's available at your local auto parts store.If it's a whistling noise you may want to check to see that everything has been installed okay.
omar azzam: i had the bad brake disc issue so i got new brake discs and pads what is wierd is that its continuously whistling! i would appreciate your help if u have any idea why this is happening it already un leveled the braking discs 99 xj
sonofadrummerdude: My gf has a '04. Just got done with changing pads. Had done it before but, years ago. This vid helped me refresh. Thank you very much!!
Shane Kennedy: i had same prob on my 2004 ...factory recal on front brake and rotors you should check into it they replaced mine for free the wobbled like crazy braking under speed
CompCrasher86: The rear brakes on a 99-04 Grand Cherokee should be Teves style disc brakes whereas the front brakes are Akebono style disc brakes. Drums were not available on this model.
1aauto: The front brakes for this vehicle are a rotor style where the rears are a drum.
plague405: Does this model jeep have the same kind of brakes on all four wheels or just the front?
directech111: Note for some US Owners:
The 3/4" and 11/16" bolts described in the video are actually metric in some cases. On my Son's 2002 Grand Cherokee Limited, the sizes were 18mm and 17mm respectively.
I foolishly purchased brake parts from another internet location before watching the video, and noticed after the fact, that the parts sold by 1A Auto were considerably less expensive. I will check 1A Auto from now on, I could have saved $55USD.
1aauto: just do the regular maintenance, such as changing the oil and fluids. You may need a new set of brake rotors and pads. We carry them on our website 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Yosimar Madrid: @1aauto hey nice vids man 2? First ? What can I do to keep my 2003 jeep grand cherokee in nice running shape and 2 ? When iam driving on the highway and i slow down and try to stop my wheel and tire shake wat do u think that is
1aauto: It won't hurt anything if you open the cap while you compress the calipers.
onemaxlight: I took this car as tird hand car, so i don't know what others has done before me (before 2009)
The car as 250.000 Km (around 160.000 miles).
do you think could be a good idea to let the break-fluid tank cap, open during the work?
Maybe this way, if they putted too much fluid , it will be free to come out from the tank when i'll press caliper piston back?
Or is it not important? (or even wrong)
1aauto: Normally as long as you have not topped off the brake fluid as it has gotten lower and lower, you can push the caliper piston back in and not have any issues because the same amount of fluid that was there to start with will be going into the reservoir.
onemaxlight: HI, i'm Max from Italy.
really great video, i'm going to change rotors and pads by myself.
Just a little question:
i have seen in another video that the mechanic take out (pump out) some break fluid from the plastic break-fluid tank before to press pistons back.
Is it necessary to do or not in my Jeep GC 2003 4.7?
Thank you for anyone can answer.
(sorry for my terrible english :-))
gstree: Be very carefull when pushing the caliper pistons back with ABS brakes (especially on cherokke's) as you can cause a problem with the brakes sticking on afterwards. Clamp the hose and release the bleed nipple so the fluid dosen't go back into the system. If you google about brake sticking problems you will find it's mostly after people have fitted pads as the was no fault before !
1aauto: You could try your local Jeep dealer. They should be able to get them for you.
Johnnyh0820: I have a 02 grand cherokee, So I lost the caliper bolts from the front passenger side I tried going to different places where they sale bolts but no one has them any idea where I can get some?
1aauto: If you're doing just the pads you can just take the a calipers off and replace them. We carry the replacement brake pads on our website 1aauto.com with free shipping or you can call Tony @ 866-403-3393 hope this helps you out.
HerosComment: So if you just installing new pads, there is no need to do all them extra steps, is there? Just take off the caliper bolts and remove the old pads and slide in the new ones, correct? I need to do this in the next two days. Thank you for any help and I appreciate your videos.
1aauto: Yes they could. If the brake pedal pulsates up and down when you press them, it's usually the sign of warped rotors. We carry some nice brake rotor and break pad kits online for the 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee. Here's a link to them on our site. Just copy and paste this into your browser 1aauto.com/1A/BrakePadAndRotorKits/Jeep/GrandCherokee/-/-/1999
Charles Lindsey: I drive a 1999 grand Cherokee Laredo my question is could warped rotors be the cause of violent shaking during deceleration above 50 mph or is it something else?
frachel3: Great video. I appreciate how you ran into issues and you told us how to address them. I'm sure I will have similar issues. Thanks!
1aauto: Anytime, have a great weekend.
Donovan GrassRope: Awesome Thanxxx!!! for answering my q's....
1aauto: You shouldn't have to bleed the brakes to change rotors and pads. Remember to pump the brake pedal before you move the vehicle so that the brake pressure comes back. If for some reason they feel really soft or rock hard after you service the brakes, then you could try to bleed them. You shouldn't have to though. Hope this helps you out. Have a great day.
Donovan GrassRope: I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo, , my question is this? Do you have to bleed out the lines before changind the brake pads, I need to change the front but will be changing the rear pads as well, just because it makes sense to do all 4 tires? Hadnt since I had the vehicle for years now.
1aauto: You could try to bleed the brakes, and if that doesn't resolve the issue the calipers could be hanging up and freezing, you may want to see if this is what's happening.
aryaan9: Hi I own a 2000 WJ Jeep Grand Cherokee i had new front brake discs and new pads fitted but now after a bit of driving my brakes become hard to press and they smoke i also smell burning. I was hoping for some advise. thank You
1aauto: No problem at all. You should be able to apply most of these basics to your Cherokee. I just picked up a 97 Grand Cherokee (ZJ) so we'll shoot some more Jeep videos for you guys as well.
classiclistener01: @1aauto - Thank you for posting this! With any luck, this video will help me with my Jeep Cherokee Sport!?!?
Take care, Man!
1aauto: The rear disks are very similar. When you take the calipers off and compress them, they will not compress all of the way into the calpier like the fronts do. Hope this helps you out. Have a great day!
ThePlaygroundCartel: Is it the same procedure for both front and rear disc brakes???
1aauto: you're probably looking at around 300-400 for parts and labor. Labor rates can vary from shop to shop though.
Erika Gonzalez: What is the average cost for a repair for this make and model if done at a service shop?
MrDualShockz: Thanks for that video. Explained everything i was looking for.
do c: Great Video... the sledge hammer came in handy.... thanks... to change the rear brakes is the same procedure???
Craig MacLeod: Hey Now... My caliper has hex bolts also. I don't suppose you remember what size it is so I don't have to buy the whole set. Thanks in advance.
JasperCountyNative: Thanks! Got it done; was a breeze! Ended up needing a hex wrench, but no biggie.
JasperCountyNative: Thanks! Got it done; was a breeze!
Parker Xavier: Thanks for posting this!
1aauto: It sounds like you have the Teves brake calipers as found on the earlier Jeep Grand Cherokees. The only difference is removing the clip or (wire) on the front of the caliper. Everything else such as collapsing the calipers and removing the pads, should be pretty much the same.
JasperCountyNative: Brakes are the same for 99-04 Grand Cherokee?
My mom's 2000 has some kind of tensioned wire across the front of the caliper. Does this require extra steps?
