  1. Disconnect the battery negative cable, as outlined in the Chassis Electrical Section.
  2. Disable the Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system. (see procedure below)
  3. Remove the steering wheel.
  4. Remove the tilt lever close out plate.
  5. Remove the retaining screw from the lower steering column trim covers.
  6. Tilt the trim cover down and slide rearward in order to disengage the locking tabs.
  7. Remove the lower steering column trim covers.
  8. Remove the retaining screws from the upper steering column trim cover.

    jturcotte_1886.gif

    Fig. Lift the trim cover in order to gain access to the lock cylinder access hole.

  9. Lift the trim cover in order to gain access to the lock cylinder access hole.
  10. Insert the Snap-On A173A bent-tip awl or equivalent, with a 3/32 in (2.5mm) tip, and 3/4 in (20mm) in length, into the access hole of the ignition lock cylinder.

  2. Align the lock cylinder retaining tab and the position tab with the slots in the lock housing.
  3. Completely push the lock cylinder into the lock housing.
    NOTE Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.
  4. Install the retaining screws to the upper steering trim cover and tighten the screws to 31 inch lbs. (3.5 Nm).
  5. Match the tab slots on the lower trim cover with the locking tabs on the upper trim cover.

Hi I,ve got a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the problem I,m having is when I turn on the heating fan i get a mist or steam coming out of the vents smells like coolant could this be a heater core problem ,...


Yes, your core is leaking. The core is in the box under the dash. The procedure is quite involved. I will attempt to paste from autozone.com below:
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, please familiarize yourself with safety procedures.
  2. Disconnect and remove the negative battery.
    CAUTION After disconnecting the negative battery cable, wait 2 minutes for the driver-s/passenger-s air bag system capacitor to discharge before attempting to do any work around the steering column or instrument.
  3. Drain the cooling system into a clean container for reuse.
  4. Remove the instrument panel by performing the following procedure:
    1. Turn the steering wheel in the straight-ahead position.
    2. Remove the A-pillar trim from both sides of the vehicle.
    3. Remove the top cover from the instrument panel.
    4. Near the windshield line, remove the 4 instrument panel-to-chassis nuts.
    5. Remove the scuff plates from both front door sills.
    6. Remove the trim panels from both sides of the inner cowl.
    7. Remove the floor console.
    8. Remove the fuse cover from the junction box.
    9. Remove the instrument panel cluster bezel.
    10. Remove the steering column opening cover from the instrument panel.
    11. Remove the steering column bracket from the instrument panel column support bracket.
    12. Remove the lower steering column shroud cover-to-multifunction switch screw; then, unsnap both halves of the shroud cover from the steering column.
    13. Disconnect the instrument panel wiring harness connectors from the following steering column components:
      Both lower clock spring connector receptacles Left multifunction switch receptacle Right multifunction switch receptacle Both ignition switch receptacles Shifter interlock solenoid receptacle Sentry Key Immobilizer Module (SKIM) receptacle, if equipped
    14. Turn the ignition switch to ON position; then, release and remove the shifter interlock cable connector from the ignition lock housing receptacle.
    15. Turn the ignition switch to OFF position; this will prevent the steering wheel from turning and the loss of the clock spring centering following steering column removal.
    16. Remove the 4 steering column-to-instrument panel steering column bracket nuts.
    17. Remove the steering column from the instrument panel.
    18. Disconnect both side body wiring harness bulkhead connectors, the Ignition Off Draw (IOD) wiring harness connector and the fused wiring harness connector from the junction block connector receptacles.
    19. Disconnect the instrument panel wiring harness-to-floor console component connectors:
      Air bag control module connector receptacle Parking brake switch terminal Transmission shifter connector receptacle
    20. Remove the 2 instrument panel wiring harness-to-floor console ground terminals located behind the air bag control module.
    21. Disconnect the instrument panel wiring harness-to-floor console retainers.
    22. Remove the instrument panel-to-floor console bracket screws and the bracket.
    23. Remove the driver-s side floor duct-to-heater/air conditioning housing assembly screw and remove the duct.
    24. If equipped with a manual heating-air conditioning system, disconnect the vacuum harness connector from behind the driver-s side floor duct.
    25. Remove the instrument panel steering column support bracket-to-driver-s side of the heater/air conditioning housing assembly screw
    26. Remove the instrument panel steering column support bracket-to-intermediate bracket screw.

    28. Remove the 2 instrument panel-to-driver-s side cowl side inner panel screws.
    29. Remove the instrument panel end cap.
    30. Remove the lower right center bezel from the instrument panel.
    31. At the passenger-s side cowl side inner panel, disconnect the instrument panel wiring harness bulkhead connector from the lower cavity of the inline connector.
    32. Near the right side cowl inner panel, located under the end of the instrument panel, disconnect both halves of the radio antenna coaxial cable connector.
    33. Disconnect the 2 instrument panel-to-heater/air conditioning assembly wiring harness connectors.
    34. At the passenger-s side, remove the 2 instrument panel structural duct-to-heater/air conditioning housing assembly screws.
