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.

      that's the spot I would go also. I tried there once this year, not much luck, but I did mark many fish.

      I have a couple of those covers.  Not sure what they are good for.

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff
