How to Remove 2000 Jeep Rotors

When the disc brakes on your Jeep start to go out, the brake pads' wear indicators will start to squeak. Don't just change the pads to stop the squeal; you also need to replace or turn the rotors. This will give your new pads a fresh, flat surface to contact, making pads and rotors work in harmony. In this case, the project vehicle is a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but the process is similar for other Jeep vehicles, and removing the rotors to replace them or turn them isn't difficult.

Skill level:Moderately Easy

Things you need

JackJack standsTire ironSocket wrench setHeavy-duty wireFlathead screwdriverCotter-pin pullerPliers

Instructions

1 Use the jack to lift the front of the vehicle, then set it on the jack stands. Make sure the vehicle is completely and solidly on the stands before you work on it. Remove the front wheels, using the tire iron, and set them aside from your workspace. Only the front wheels of the Grand Cherokee have disc brakes.

2 Disconnect the two bolts securing the brake caliper to the front steering knuckle with the socket wrench, then use the heavy-duty wire to suspend the brake caliper from the front suspension so there is no tension on the brake line.

3 Pry off the dust cap on the centre of the brake rotor, using the flathead screwdriver. Flatten the cottar pin in the middle of the rotor with the pliers, and pull it out of the castle nut on the brake rotor with the cottar-pin puller.

4 Unbolt the centre bolt on the brake rotor with the socket wrench. Grip the rotor on both sides with your hands, and pull it off the hub.

5 Replace or turn the rotor as recommended, then repeat the process for other rotor.
