Yeah mate discs/ rotors.

Yeah I know, I did live in Isleworth for a bit. Good ole' London Taaan! Loved it. Well for a while. I eventually got sick of Albanians trying to flog me hotdogs!

They really are simple enough to do, but FFS DON'T take it to the stealer to get brakes done. There should be info on wkjeeps.com for you. Any probs just give me a bell. Doing my rear brakes this week.

Re: Braking

Matt did a good write up here;

How-To: Change Front Brake Pads (WK)

The only extra you'd need, is to remove the caliper mounting bolts, to get the bracket off.

Re: Braking

Jsonracer if you find out why it does it please let me know. The only thing I can think of is maybe a bad master cylinder or something. It acts like it maybe has air in their or the diaphram is bad.

So its the brake pads that need doing, and not the discs?

I think before i invest in new pads, i will take it to Kwik-fit who do a free brake check.

No. It is the discs. I was using that write up as an illustration as to how to remove the calipers, as you'll need to get them off to access the discs.

You can check your pads yourself. Take the wheel off and check if the pad against the wear indicator.

Re: Braking

^If you're looking for parts let me know and I'll PM you details for a London based supplier. I use them often and they are great

Yeah, you can do it yourself. There's a "how-to" with pictures of changing the brake pads on this site. Taking off the brake pad calipers is easy (two bolts). You'll want to pick up some supplies and do a little homework first. It's fun, and I did my fronts myself too. But I took it to Les Schwab for the rears... it was easier and cost about the same.

X2. Sounds like new rotors and pads are in order.

You can check the runout of the rotors with a dial indicator, but probably to your advantage to just do them all at the same time because of your symptoms.

Check for some threads on the Jeep forums about brake pad / rotor break-in procedure (no pun intended). Unlikely the dealer will take the time to do this properly.
