FIRST REMOVE THE WHEEL, THEN THERE ARE 2 TORX STYLE BOLTS AT THE BACK OF THE CALIPERS. REMOVE THOSE 2 BOLTS IF YOU HAVE TO GENTLY TAP THE CALIPER OFF OF THE ROTOR. NOW ONE PAD IS PUSHED INTO THE PISTON WITH A CLIP ON THE BACK OF IT THE OTHER SITS ON THE ROTOR FRAME. REMOVE THEM JUST MAKE SURE YOU TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THE POSISTION THEY WERE IN. THEN WHAT I DO IS, I HAVE A PISTON SPREADER TOOL TO PUSH THE PISTON BACK FLUSH INTO THE CALIPER. I PUT ONE NEW PAD AND ONE OLD PAD IN THE CALIPER PUT THE TOOL BETWEEN THE PADS AND TURN THE SCREW UNTIL THE PISTON IS BACK FLUSH. IF YOU DONT HAVE THIS LITTLE USE A C-CLAMP, WITH ONE OLD PAD AGAINST THE PISTON SQUEEZE WITH THE C-CLAMP UNTIL FLUSH, THEN CLEAN THE CALIPERS A LITTLE BIT WHERE THEY SLIDE ON THE FRAME AND RUB A LITTLE GREASE ON THEM. THEN REINSTALL THE PADS. NOTE: WHEN PUSHING IN THE PISTON DO NOT HAVE THE OTHER SIDE CALIPER OFF YET BECAUSE PUSHING IN THE PISTON ON THE SIDE COULD CAUSE THE OTHER ONE TO POP OUT OF THE PISTON. YOU DONT WANT THAT HEADACHE. SO ONE SIDE AT A TIME. I HOPE I HAVE BEEN OF SOME HELP.

Buying a Jeep Grand Cherokee Manual would be your best bet, but in a short version to install the front brake pads or any other brake pads. Jack up the jeep block the wheels, put jack stands underneith the axle you are working on, take the tire off, once off set the tire half way under the rock gaurd. Unbolt your brake caliber which is two bolts from inbehind the rotor, once bolts are out, take off brake caliber slowly. there is two brake pads left and right pull them out then do reverse of what you just did to take them out.... Good Luck

How do you change the parking brake pads for a 2005 Jeep grand Cherokee and is the parking brake needed?

The parking brake pads are the same brake pads that stop your vehicle when you apply the brake petal. This is a mechanical system instead of a hydraulic one and so, yes, the parking break is needed in the event that the hydraulic system fails or in case you should have to change the tire. The last thing you want is to park on a hill and come out and find your vehicle at the bottom. Get it fixed at a reputable brake repair shop.
