Casey James: Where can I find the caliper bracket bolts you take off at 4:00 (time)? I'm
trying to find them everywhere and no one can help me out. I greatly
appreciate the help.
1A Auto Parts: @JasperCountyNative 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
1A Auto Parts: 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
plague405: Does this model jeep have the same kind of brakes on all four wheels or
just the front?
1A Auto Parts: It won't hurt anything if you open the cap while you compress the calipers.
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
1A Auto Parts: Thanks Sam, we carry tons of repair parts for Jeeps with free shipping on
our website 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
1A Auto Parts: @airgonz you're probably looking at around 300-400 for parts and labor.
Labor rates can vary from shop to shop though.
1A Auto Parts: @classiclistener01 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.
ThePlaygroundCartel: Is it the same procedure for both front and rear disc brakes???
2200char: 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
1A Auto Parts: Thanks for watching. We carry new brake rotors and pads on our website
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
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
ChildHoodHorror: I have a 99 Jeep grand Cherokee Laredo and it looks a lot different than
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!
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!
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
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
MrDualShockz: Thanks for that video. Explained everything i was looking for.
1A Auto Parts: 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
Erika Gonzalez: What is the average cost for a repair for this make and model if done at a
1A Auto Parts: 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.
Terrathrax: Thanks for the video. Gives me some confidence heading into my rotor
1A Auto Parts: 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
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 !
1A Auto Parts: 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
1A Auto Parts: HI Sam, Thanks for watching.
1A Auto Parts: 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.
do c: Great Video... the sledge hammer came in handy.... thanks... to change the
rear brakes is the same procedure??? THANKS!!!
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?
1A Auto Parts: 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
classiclistener01: @1aauto - Thank you for posting this! With any luck, this video will help
me with my Jeep Cherokee Sport!?!? Take care, Man!
JasperCountyNative: @1aauto Thanks! Got it done; was a breeze! Ended up needing a hex wrench,
but no biggie.
1A Auto Parts: 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.
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.
Craig MacLeod: @JasperCountyNative 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.
Parker Xavier: Thanks for posting this!
1A Auto Parts: Anytime, have a great weekend.
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!!
JasperCountyNative: @1aauto Thanks! Got it done; was a breeze!
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
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.
1A Auto Parts: The front brakes for this vehicle are a rotor style where the rears are a
Donovan GrassRope: Awesome Thanxxx!!! for answering my q's....
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)
1A Auto Parts: @aryaan9 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.
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 :-)) Max
1A Auto Parts: @ThePlaygroundCartel 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!
1A Auto Parts: You could try your local Jeep dealer. They should be able to get them for
Vet: When I graduated High School, all I wanted to do was kick back and relax without having to do any homework. But I realized I have no money to do anything fun. So I went to a San Francisco Vet School to get trained to make money. But seeing your videos, I am gonna be an internet marketer on the side. Let me know if you have any tips. Thanks.
