Best Answer

This is taken from the 2003 Jeep Libery Renegade Service manual. Done many break jobs (disc) and most (99.8%) are done this way....Hope this helps.

REMOVAL - REAR DISC BRAKE PADS

1- Raise and support vehicle.
2-Remove the wheel and tire assemblies.
3-Compress the caliper. (I used a big vice-grips, just be sure not to damage caliper. They cost a lot.)
4-Remove the caliper.
5- Remove the caliper by tilting the top up and off the caliper adapter.

NOTE: DO NOT ALLOW BRAKE HOSE TO SUPPORT CALIPER ASSEMBLY.

6-Support and hang the caliper.
7-Remove the inboard brake pad from the caliper adapter.
8-Remove the outboard brake pad from the caliper adapter.

INSTALLATION

1-Bottom pistons in caliper bore with C-clamp. (before removing old pad, I use vice to bottom, i.e. push it in as far as you can into caliper ALWAYS protect the outside of caliper with ...heavy cloth, thin wood,etc,etc..as long as it is not metal to metal to damage it)
2- Clean caliper mounting adapter and anti-rattle springs. i.e. make sure there isn't any junk/dust/metal flakes/etc,etc that will cause problems
3-Lubricate anti-rattle springs with Mopar brake grease. i.e. Any grease will do.
4- Install anti-rattle springs.

NOTE: Anti-rattle springs are not interchangeable.

5-Install inboard brake pad in adapter.
6-Install outboard brake pad in adapter.
7-Tilt the top of the caliper over rotor and under adapter. Then push the bottom of the caliper down onto the adapter.
8-Install Caliper.
9-Install wheel and tire assemblies and lower vehicle.
10-Apply brakes several times to seat caliper pistons and brake shoes and obtain firm pedal.
11-Top off master cylinder fluid level.

Thats it. By myself and no kids-wife-dog around I could do the job in about an hour..including tool cleanup and put away.

Do you have to replace the back brake shoes if you change front pads?

No. You will only need to replace the brake shoes if they are worn down. Generally the front brakes do 70% of braking leaving the rear with 30%, which will cause the front pads to wear first. What is important however is that you replace either front brakes or rear brakes as a set. i.e. if you're replacing the front brakes do the right and left side.
