I really don't think you can dent the "Pumpkin" per se, since it's made of Cast Steel and that would mean its probably a crack... Do you mean the pumpkin 'cover' is dented and has a pin hole? Either way, if there is a crack/pin hole in the Diff, I'd be extremely careful.. And make sure the damage is minor since your dealing with something that can explode on you going down the road - causing the rear wheel's to lock up..!
simple!remove wheels wich ever side remove drums or rotors remove rear pumpkin cover! spin gears til u see an 8 mm pin! remove pin/bolt then slide larger pin out ! k push axl in c clip will fall out remove axl ! to install reverse!
Not much you can do for peeling chrome from a grill. (I assume it is plastic). If it is metal you can check with a chrome shop toi see what they'd charge you to rechrome it. Another option is to check with after-market auto accessories places and see if they don't have an after market grill for your vehicle. Replacement is about all you can do. I would be very suprised if any extended warranties would cover peeling chrome. I think you are stuck with this one. You can consider having it painted. Cheapest replacement would be from your local junkyard or carparts.com ( on-line listing of junkyards) but you may just be buying someone else's problem. It oculd be much worse. There ahev been cars that litterally shed their paints clear coat and the owners were just out of luck. As far as why the dealer tried to get you to pay for the repair, that's easy; money. He would probably be able to charge you more for the repair than the extended warranty would pay.
think its underneath by the fuel tank ,but you shouldnt need to change it i have a 94 XJ6 4lt and i have never had to touch anything ,just changed the oil and filter ,evan the plugs havent needed changing in 2 yrs ,but you must polish it every week and clean the leather once a month with that stuff that keeps it supple .and dont forget to polish the chrome exhaust cover on the exhaust manifold
The oil pump is in the oil pan and needs to be dropped and being a 4WD you also need to drop the front axle pumpkin to remove the oil pan and replace all the gasket needed. Start with the easy and replace the oil pressure sending unit, it's on the back of the engine to the passenger side of the distributor. You can go to Auto Zone and pick up a new Oil sending unit, just make sure your get the right one, "Sending Unit" Looks the same are the oil pressure sensor but the unit reads the pressure, the other just signal a light to go on and off. It's an easy fix like replacing a spark plug.
Chrome does not like diesels the exhuast get too hot and turn chrome blue and the chemicals in the exhuast will eat chrome. The best thing to use if you want chrome is to go polished stainless steel. this is a harder metal, will not blue as easy and will not rust
I would not recommend trying to polish it. It is "chrome plated" plastic. There is a very thin delicate layer of this chroming on the plastic part. Even gentle polishing, which wouldn't remove all of the scratches, could possibly remove the chrome down to the plastic. I would hold them to the coals and make them buy a new piece. If you are worried about the detailers installing it correctly, insist they pay the dealer to install it.
