2001 Jeep Gr. Cherokee Front Rotors???

7 posts in this topic

I have a 2001 Jeep Gr. Cherokee Laredo, 4.7, 4WD. I cannot get the front rotors off. We've tried to heat them up, beat the snot out of them, etc. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Hoggs

I've read to spray some penetrating oil (PB Blaster, Kroil) and let it sit for a while. WJJeeps and JeepsUnlimited are priceless resources for us Jeep owners.

Some rotors have two threaded holes in the flange area that you thread bolts into to pop them loose. I don't believe that the Jeep will have them but its worth a look.

Otherwise, the BFH is your best bet! I've only run into a few in my career that had to literally be destroyed to get them off. I live near Bunker and Hanson if you need a hand!

I have had this issue as well. It took a while, but heating and pounding simultaneously near the bolts was the ticket. You know your close when you start to see clouds of rust around the bolts themselves. They will come...take your time and don't destroy the rotors if they are able to be ground for another round...

We got them off with a bigger BFH! The rotors were shot, so they got the business!

When you go back together you might try a very light smear of waterproof grease to keep the new ones from seizing the same way.

Anti-seeze!

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
