Question about Jeep Cherokee

The trunk door of our Jeep Cherokee Sport (1999 I think) won't stay open ie. the hydraulicy things on the side don't hold the door up--it just drops down and slams shut.

Those are easy to replace and available at most auto parts stores.
Some auto parts stores will be nice enough to even install them for you. If not, really a 5 minute job. Don't change one...change both of them.

The "hydraulic thingys" are called trunk shocks. they are available at any local parts store - they are vehicle specific, they will have to look up your part number. they are very easy to change, either a simple locking tab at each end of the shock, or a bolt at each end. this is a two person job, someone will need to hold the hatch up while someone changes the shocks. good luck!

Water leak on the passanger side of a 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport


The first place I would look is the floor board caps. Make sure one or more of them aren't pushed up, allowing water to enter the cabin. Also, because your defroster is probably on while it's raining, make sure the A/C drain plug isn't clogged. It's a small rubber fiting that sticks out from inside the firewall, behind the engine. Simply pull it out and clean it. When you pull it out, you might be surprised to see water coming out of the hole!

Just a couple things to check. I hope this helps! :)
