Jeep Cherokee Grand Cherokee Do It Yourself Solutions



  • I have to replace the right front turn signal lens. It looks easy-remove 1 screw located between the upper and lower lens will remove the side lens. Then remove 1 or 2 screws (facing downward) to release the old lens (it swings on a hinge?). Am I correct on the procedure?

    check the autozone website for a online manual..i've used it several times,and found it was a reasonably competent manual !'s kinda handy to shop for your parts online,then find the info on how to put it on!..sign in/select your vehicle/select "service manuals",or something similar,...only found one car they didn't have so far,but worth a try!..also,try googling "auto service manuals" for online e-books,my nephew found one that way for his "vibe",and helped a lot when we pulled the dash's auto engineers are getting better and better about HIDING crutial bolts on stuff like that..,all part of their "get the customer out from under the hood,and into the service department" policy-but it's hard to discourage us "shade tree specialist's",with more time than money.. :shades:
  • thanks, i'll chech it out!
  • I assume the cracks developed because the systems pressure release is malfunctioning? is the hidden radiator cap the only pressure release point in the system? is the cap on the reservoir designed to release presure? Please help. about 1 year ago I replaced the thermostat and flushed/replaced coolent.

    Anyone know of an AC eliminator bracket for a (1998) Cherokee Sport? The engine is the 4.0 liter.

    Anyone know what the thread is on Chrysler part 83504653? This is the fitting, probably same part number for various Jeeps, that attaches the vent hose to the front differential. They are notorious for breaking off or falling out. The vent prevents the higher pressure after warm-up from blowing out the axle seals. I want to replace the cheap plastic fitting with a brass version from a hardware store. I know it can be done, but I don't know the thread size of the fitting.

    I have a 94 Jeep Cherokee with an electrical short somewhere. The engine fan and compressor will not come on yet they work when hot-wired. The OMB is giving me a code of 33 and 35. Can't afford to put it in the shop for 4 hours. We had the exact same jeep a few years ago and it had the same problem. It was found and fixed in 1 hour for 100.00.
    Being stupid, we never asked where the short was. Can anybody help me? We have checked all the fuses, none blown...any suggestions?

    Angie :confuse:

    Try calling the person who did the original repair. There's at least a small chance he or she would remember what was at fault and provide you with specifics.

  • My 01 Jeep GC last week had about 4 ft. of water around and inside it and I am wondering if I have to change the Electrical Wiring Harness or if I have to change the fuses, ISO Relays, and cartridges? What should I do?

    so i was able to remove the bolt connecting the track bar to the axle. I cut through the nut side of the bolt connecting the bar to the frame. Now the bolt seems to be rusted to the sleeve inside the bushing, and the busing is tight to the frame mount and i cannot get this bolt out. i could use some pointers. " i don't have a tourch" and i thought this was going to be an easy task but now it is taking up to much of the little spare time i have. PLEASE HELP SOMEONE!!!!!!!!!!
  • My 1999 JGC is running codes that tell me 3 of my cylinders have circuit malfunctions. I'm not exactly sure what that means but I need some tips on how to repair it. I would like to do it myself or atleast try before taking it to a shop. Any information about this would be extremely helpful and greatly appreciated! Please help I cant even drive it at the moment because the noises its making are HORRIBLE!!!

    A few point on AC recharge on a 1996 JGC. You can have a shop do it like I did every 3-4 years or get smart and buy a kit from KRAGEN. My cost from the shops varied from 99$ to 189$. I bout the kit at Kragen and it was only 30$. You need to look at the fan clutch on your compressor and make sure it engages and spins. If not, you need prf. help. If it at least engages a little you may be able to re-charge it yourself. It may click on and off, but that is usually a safety mechanism. Buy the kit. Make sure to follow the recs. Only charge your system to about 40 PSI and make sure to use the low pressure coupler. My Jeep was clicking on and off (the fan clutch). I would simply fill it when it clicked on. As the system recharged, the clutch engaged and it stayed on full time. My car is now nice and cool. This was easy and may save you lots of money. If it does not last long, YOU HAVE A LEAK AND NEED HELP.

    where is the NSS located on a 2003 jeep grand cherokee?
  • Hi, I have a Grand Cherokee 1999. The piston bonnet struts have "gone". I am no mechanic although I am good with tools and have a great deal of common sense. Is this job easy to do?
  • steverstever Posts: 52,683
    You could cut a broomstick to length and toss it in the back. :shades:

    The only struts I've replaced are the ones on hatches. They are pretty easy to do, although sometimes there's a trick to twisting one end of the rod into place. The weight shouldn't be much different with a hood but the angles may require beefier struts up front. Maybe the parts person would walk you through the process in a few minutes.

    Does anyone have a step by step prochedure to repair the vaccum line for the cruise control located under the battery support.
  • It is not tough at all, but it will depend on what type of replacement pistons you buy. I would suggest buying auto parts store pistons over dealer. Last weekend I did the rear liftgate pistons, the dealer wanted $65.00 for EACH side or $130.00 total. I bought 2 from Carquest for $39.80. Installed them and they work fine. The point here is ask the counter person where you buy them and they can help you with the install for thier type of piston. You will need that broom stick to support the hood (bonnet) while you change them. Do one side at a time. Good luck.
  • Ready for my first oil change but could not fint the oil filter, can anybody tell me where is it?
  • pole2pole2 Posts: 17
    Is this a diesel engine ?
  • My 94 GCL woulden't take a charge because the compressure would kick on and off. The solution is unhook the wire from the accumulater tank switch and jumper out. This keeps the compressor on and then takes a charge. Mine diden't work for two summers, did this and it has been cold ever since. Oh ya, the shop told me I needed a new evaporater. It's been two summers so I guess their wrong. :)
