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.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.
