You can order one from your dealership, or even better, try to shop online by trying several jeep dealerships. I've found that these days they are real happy to sell their parts to older models that have been sitting on the shelves too long and even with shipping, you can save some $$$.

A general search for jeep parts OEM will get you plenty of resources.

These also can be repaired using good plastic cement if taken off & held in place until they dry, then reinstall. I use similar flat plastic from other projects to add extra support to the cracked areas from the back side when the breaks are not too bad. good luck

Why does my 2008 Lexus es 350 shut down aND won't start back up after I run over a puddle of water ?

You are getting water into an electrical component.
First, be sure all plastic splash pans under the car are in place.
If not , you need to fix that after you do the other repairs to the electrical system.
Go to the distributor cap.
Remove that and clean it carefully, and inspect it for cracks.
If you can, replace it,
Then begin to look for wire harnesses that could be splashed on, and see if any couplings are loose .
Remember body plugs, where wire harnesses plug in to the body of the car in order to go to the other areas.
WD40 has been used for years as a water repellant, so a good coat of that can help you .
God bless your efforts.

Is transmission fluid pan accessable from underneath car?

Yeah, that's how it is done. Use jackstands or blocks under car. Raise enough that you can work comfortably underneath. The pan is on the very bottom of the transaxle. Loosen all pan bolts a turn or two, then remove bolts from one end, letting pan start lowering, catch fluid with drain pan. When fluid level in the pan gets low, finish removing all pan bolts, and pull the pan off. Filter is right there underneath the pan.

How to replace oil pan

5.2 liter V8 engine?

Remove the four front skid-plate bolts holding the front skid plate, using a ratchet and socket. Remove the skid plate.

Pull the plastic splash shield away from the vehicle, loosening the retaining clips. Remove the splash shield.

  • Place an oil drain container under the oil pan. Loosen the drain fitting with a wrench until oil drains from the pan. When oil is done draining, tighten the drain fitting.

  • Disconnect the electrical connections running to the starter motor. Remove the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the starter motor.
  • Remove the oxygen sensor socket from the exhaust pipe, using a wrench.
  • Remove the exhaust manifold bolts where the exhaust meets the manifold on both sides, using a ratchet and socket
  • Place an jack under the transmission to support it. Remove the pressure on the transmission crossmember.

  • Remove the bolts that hold the transmission crossmember in place, using a ratchet and socket. Then remove the crossmember. Place a jack stand under the transmission to keep the transmission from falling off the jack if hit. Once removed, the exhaust will hang down, allowing enough room to remove the oil pan.
  • Disconnect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Remove the oil pan bolts with a ratchet and socket, then remove the oil pan and gasket.
  • Clean the mounting surfaces of the new oil pan and engine block. Make sure what ever you use to clean the surfaces dosn't gouge the metal.
  • Place a coat of RTV (gasket) sealer on the engine block where the pan will meet the rear main cap.
  • Place the new gasket on the pan and push the new oil pan into place. Finger tighten the oil pan mounting bolts to hold it in place. Tighten the bolts with a torque wrench to 18 ft-lbs. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE BOLTS! Doing so will cause the gasket to deform and create leaks!

  • Connect the oil level sensor and the nut retaining the transmission cooling lines, using a wrench.
  • Place the exhaust back into position and replace the transmission crossmember bolts and crossmember with a ratchet and socket.
  • Remove the jack supporting the transmission.
  • Connect the exhaust back to both sides of the manifold, tightening the bolts with a torque wrench to 20 ft-lbs.
  • Attach the oxygen sensor socket to the exhaust pipe with a wrench.

  • Replace the starter motor by installing the starter motor mounting bolts with a ratchet and socket. Connect the electrical connections to the starter motor that were disconnected during removal.
  • Push the retaining clips on the plastic splash shield into the appropriate retaining clip holes.
  • Replace the front skid plate by replacing the four front skid plate bolts with a ratchet and socket.
  • Fill the engine with 5 quarts of oil. Make sure to check the level on the dipstick to find the exact level when filling.

    Replacing oil pan: what is the best way to access it to remove it?

    The only access way for oil pan replacing is from the bottom side of the engine (car). This operation needs to remove the bottom engine plastic cover.

    Im losing anti freeze i looked under the car and

    If the engine is the same as the 2002 Impala 3.8L engine, the problem is most likely cracked connectors where the coolant enters the engine block. There are two L-shaped plastic connectors that connect the coolant lines through the metal block attached to the tensioner arm to the engine block. Common problem and parts are available from the dealer for under $20, but takes several hours of disassembling and specific torque specs. Just replaced mine over the summer.

    Removing rusted shroud bolts from a 2004 Mazda 3.

    Funny that I ran into the same thing a few hours ago. I started on the driver's side screws first. The two screws on that side broke under the head, luckily. Then I came to the screws under the radiator. First remove the push-lock fastener. Use a 10mm open wrench to keep the nut from turning. I have long arms and was able to reach them. The two remaining screws on the passenger's side did not break off but instead broke the holes in the splash pan. If this part is over $120 then I will fix what I have by riveting aluminum sheet to the splash pan. Epoxy will not stick to this stuff.

    Good Luck!

    Trying to replace the ac condenser fan on a 92 honda accord. How do you get to the bottom bolt??

    You will have to remove the lower splash pan (plastic thing that goes across the entire front underneath, not hard to remove) from under the radiator in order to get at the lower fan bolts. The condenser fan shroud had a single lower retaining bolt; the radiator fan shroud has two.
    Hope this is helpful.
