Anything can But it would be cheaper to replace it since you most likely can't get a part number off the old one let alone they are pressed in and for you to remove it and attempt to repress one in IF you can find one will be a nightmare, . around 60 buck from an auto parts store or about 9 hours to attempt to replace 1 with no idea of how long it will last if you find it.. Good luck. BCB

SOURCE: How do replace front axle bearings on a 92 jeep

You have to pull off the wheel, brake assembly, and rotor. If it is a 4x4, i suggest you take it to a mechanic. If it isn't, once you pull all that off you will see a little cap cover. take a small screwdriver and pop off the cap. There will be a clip. pull off the clip and pull out the axle bearing. Make sure you grease the axle bearings before you put the new one in. Then put it back together in the reverse of these instructions. Hope this helps.

Likely your fan relay internal contacts have burned closed. Relay should be either in the power distribution center or in front of the battery.

Check the fan operation by disconnecting the fan wiring. Using the battery use a set of jumper wires to see if the fan runs directly off the battery.

SOURCE: my cooling fan stays on my 2000 jeep cherokee.

That is normal, the system is designed this way to prevent the overheating of the engine's head when you shut down the engine without allowing it to cool itself to an acceptable temperature.

SOURCE: 2002 jeep grand cherokee replaced radiator cooling

The airbag light will come on and stay on as long as there is an active code in the system, this means that something is malfunctioning right now so we will turn the light on. You really need to have the codes checked for an accurate diagnosis.

Its possible that you have some problem or your sensor go to bad...

1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable. Wait two minutes for the system capacitor to discharge before further service.
2. From the engine compartment, disconnect the right or left headlamp and dash wire harness connector for the front impact sensor from the sensor connector receptacle
3. From the engine compartment, remove the two screws that secure the right or left front impact sensor to the sensor mounting bracket on the right or left radiator support vertical member.
4. Remove the front impact sensor from the sensor mounting bracket.


That is for replacement, you just reverse the list for install.

Hope helps.

btw I sold my 99 but not the books.
XJ jeep, the book is here, (over 301 posted,)

at least you said its 4wd, not all are. 2points for that.

USA XJ jeep, 1998.

the trick is learning how to navigate the book , chapter #
the fact is we look first, you didn't, what is there who knows.?

if you had looked at the back side, you'd have seen 3 bolts
holding it on. and that tells you what?, that they are integrated hubs.

I need to know what the part is that the fan clutch bolts onto with 4 bolts on the shaft for a 1995 jeep grand Cherokee 4.0?

the fan is bolted to a viscous fan hub. It is designed to have silicone fluid in one half of the hub and when the engine starts cold it locks up and drives the fan until the fluid is pumped back to the other side or reservoir in the hub. It is held there and the fan now spins free When the radiator gets hot there is a bi-metallic strip that holds a valve cluse and this strip bends and allows the valve to open and the fluid is thrown by centrificale force back into the front section and the fan is then jammed because it gets more than it can pump back to the reservoir. The fan spins and draws air through the radiator and cools the coolant down. As the coolant cools down so the metal strip closes off the valve and the fan eventually free wheels again until the next stop where the action is repeated. . If your car has one of these hubs and it tends to over heat when stopped then the hub is the main cause and should be changed. The noise is the fan spinning until the fluid is moved out of the front section

I have a 1988 jeep cherokee and it has a loud squeelling noise and small amounts of smoke that come out of the defrost vent any thoughts?

Sounds like the fan motor is shot...or the fan impeller itself is rubbing on something...more than likely..the motor is shot and you will need to replace it

How do I change the axel on a 88 jeep wrangler? the u joints need to be replaced and I need to know where to start

Start by removing the center axle nut. (torqued very tight about 175ft need a solid breaker bar with about a five foot pipe added for leverage, or 3/4 impact gun. then remove wheel and caliper and rotor. Remove the hub bearing by taking out the three 12pt bolts on the opposite side of the steering knuckle. Once those bolts are loose use wd40 on the hub parting line and hammer on the bolt heads to push the bearing out.Loosen the bolts each time they need to be backed off till the hub is loose. The axle comes out right through the hole where the bearing was. Make sure you grease the joints well because you cant once it's back together.

1988 jeep cherokee engine problem

Bearings (including main bearings) as well as rear main seal require engine removal to do it correctly. If the engine is tired, then get a different one. Otherwise your determination, financial situation and skill level will tell you what you need to do.The entire job is not difficult but takes some time and you need to make precise measurements in order to get it right. (change oil pump with bearing sets) Parts prices can be found at napa online as well as numerous other places. If you need help along the way, someone here will be happy to help!
