Check this reference guide, can help you: Tow Hook & Bracket Install on 98 ZJ

You need be carefull with the plastic fasteners holding them in place. Grab the top most piece of the plastic fastener with pliers and it should slide out. If the bottom piece did not slide out with the top piece, then grab it now and slide it out. Remove all 3 fasteners. Keep these fasteners, they are reusable and I can not guarantee that you will find a hardware store to supply you with them. If you break them, you should possibly try a jeep dealership.

I need to replace the rear fog light cover in the bumper of a 2006 grand cherokee. Do I need to take the bumper off to do so?


FSM 101 or the parts list. shows this.
the parts list show 2 types.
one in the main lamp. ID 7 in drawing
then the optional bumper fog kit, rear.
so bumper. but since its and option, its not that well covered.
not in fsm i bet. did you look.?
so here is my best guess.
the kit shows NO SCREWS.
so just pry's off
see it here.

http://www.factorychryslerparts.com/showAssembly.aspx?ukey_product=4612193&ukey_assembly=1122497

or im wrong and you must gain inside access
to trip the plastic locking lever on lamp.
as you see the lens is not SOLD.
so?

How do I replace a tail light assembly on a 2007 toyota camry?


I tried to search all over the places on internet but to no avail. So did it on my own and the result was successful.

I replaced the passenger side rear tail light assembly of my Toyota Camry 2007. The method is same for the late models till 2011 no matter what the side is.

Its very easy to unscrew 3 nuts inside the trunk after removing the only portion of cover that covers the light but this is not it, there is a bracket under the light assembly which actually holds the edge of bumper and in order to pull it out of the bumper, bumper has to be partially taken out or loosen out.
To began the process I took the wheel out to unscrew 2 screws located right behind the wheel on the lining of bumper cover holding the mud flapper at the same time, if you have small philips screw driver of approx 2" length you might not need to remove the entire wheel. please see the image 1 as I took the pictures while fixing the light up and that too all alone.

10_14_2011_1_06_33_am.jpg
There are 2 more screws to be taken out one holds the flap and other holds the bumper cover, all need to be taken out to bring the flap apart.

10_14_2011_1_19_48_am.jpg
Now there is a most critical and important part for the entire job, after loosing the screws and after pulling the flap down there is a hidden bolt which will come with small sized socket (usually available in basic socket set kit)


10_14_2011_1_25_17_am.jpg

Loose the bolt like this.
10_14_2011_1_27_20_am.jpg

Now just hold the loose side of the bumper cover and pull it out towards yourself, that particular cover side will easily come off.

You need to loose another screw hiding in the cover right behind the bumper, open the cover with a help of the plain flat screw driver and take the bolt out.




10_14_2011_1_33_32_am.jpg

You have just loosen the edge of bumper cover holding the bracket of light, just pull the light towards you while facing it (do not forget to unplug the power supply sockets as in next image) bend it little to the top and slide the bracket out of the bumper cover edge and you got the light assembly out in your hand.







10_14_2011_1_51_50_am.jpg

Disconnect or unplug the power supply from the sockets, just press the plastic tip and pull the plug out from the light socket, if you just forget the order don't worry, the gray will go in gray and black one in black (please do this in the very first stage as i forgot to put this in a beginning)


10_14_2011_1_52_18_am.jpg

Now hold the new assembly, slide it's bracket in the bumper cover edge (the way it was taken off) slide the light carefully as there is a round shape plastic part in the body needs to hold the corner edge of the light assembly


10_14_2011_1_56_35_am.jpg

Put the 3 nuts back on the light bolts from inside the trunk.




10_14_2011_2_00_13_am.jpg


Attach the power sockets.

Push the snapped out side edge of the bumper cover back to its framing, the click sounds will confirm its proper attachment now put all the screws back in a same way they were taken out but don't forget to putting back the mud flap.


10_14_2011_2_05_52_am.jpg10_14_2011_2_06_20_am.jpg


10_14_2011_2_09_05_am.jpg

At the final stage, just mount back moldings from inside the trunk, please refer to the images, there are 2 bolts and rest clip in typed sockets, sometimes while snapping the moldings out the white male female clips remain in their housings, just take them out with hand or screw driver and put them back carefully back to the plastic molding before tucking them back

Hope this will help you guys out !

This entire process was done without any help of trained or professional, please handle the task by keeping maximum safety precautions and at your own risk :)

How do you attach a front license plate to a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee? I don't have the bracket that probably came with the car because when we bought it we lived in Fl and only needed one back license...


Not that difficult...either go to any scrapyard and take a bracket off a wreck, or simply drill through the bumper and attach with screws. Either will work just fine!

How to fix a broken hood latch on a 98 jeep cherokee? I have a loose or broken latch on my 98 cherokee's hood, the pass side secure but the driver side dosent latch down all the way and floats up and down...


First, take a good look at it and find out what isn't working. Often they just get rusted and sluggish. Use wd40 or other solvent and work the mechanism to free it up. If that does not work, you usually can get the assembly very cheaply at an auto salvage yard.
Also make sure the rubber bumper stops are properly adjusted they tend to wear and flatten and will allow the hood to flutter if that happens. The bumper screws up and down to adjust.

How do you remove the front bumper cover on a 98 honda accord sedan EX


Apply the parking brake and raise the vehicle and support it securely on jackstands.

Disconnect the negative battery cable, then the positive battery cable and wait two minutes before proceeding further (make sure you have the code if you have an anti-theft radio because you will need it after disconnecting the battery).

Working under the vehicle, detach the screws securing the lower edges of the bumper cover (use a small screwdriver to pop the center button up on the plastic fasteners, but do not try to remove the center buttons. They stay in the ferrules)

Remove the bolts, screws and plastic pins on each side retaining the bumper cover to the splash shields. Remove the bolt on each side where the bumper cover attaches to the fender.

Working at the top, detach the retaining bolts (2) securing the bumper cover to the hood latch support. Remove the cover.

When you put it back, make sure the tabs along the top edge of the bumper cover fit into the corresponding clips on the body before attaching the bolts and screws. An assistant is helpful.

Hope this helps you.

How do you remove the fan relay sensor on a 2004 Grand Cherokee


The fan relay sensor is behind the vacuum reservoir which is below the right (passenger) headlight and behind the bumper cover. Remove the headlight and remove the bumper cover. The fan relay sensor is fastened by two screws. You may need to drill a hole in the headlight 'saddle' to get to the screws.
