I cant get a straight answear on what rear axe i have. I have a 1996 grand cherokee orvis edition. 5.2 l engine. also when i make a sharp turn it seems like i get wheel hope . is this normal?


With a 5.2L engine, you should have a 3.73 rear back there. You can check on the axle itself to see for sure....there will be a metal tag on one of the 10 bolts that attach the rear gear cover. It will have the gear ratio stamped on that tag. The sharp turn wheel hopping is a common symptom on that style GC and probably due to worn front cv axles.

What type of tool used for the removal of the rear bumper.


You will need to have a good socket set with a variety of socket sizes. I also recommend a penetrating oil such as liquid wrench. This can be found at any hardware store. Soak all bolts that will need to be removed everyday. Locate the bolts that have to be removed by finding any bolt that attaches the bumper to the frame. If the bolts are rusted on, an impact wrench can be used to remove them. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!

Most of the ones I've seen bolt to existing frame holes around the radiator supports. There are a few brands that require some drilling. All come with detailed mounting instructions, but if you have a specific brand I could tell you the specific mounting locations.

How do i take old rear bumper and install new one? What tools are needed? will a new bumper come with rivets etc?


Hello. The bumper is bolted in place. To remove the old and install the new you will need a large set of socket wrenches and sockets. You can probably drive to certain auto parts stores and borrow what you need. The new bumper will come with the hardware needed to attach it. J.

Where in my1999 grand cherokee is my electric fan relay switch


The 1999-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee fan relay is under the right front portion of your bumper support. The Bumper is easy to remove and is a 2 piece system. Take out your headlights (1 7mm bolt on each one), then take out all the 7mm bolts on the grill. Look up in thefront fender wells and there is 1 10mm bolt on each side with 3 or 4 plasctic rivits (cut the head off and push them through and replace with new plasctic rivits from your local parts store and make sure you have a plastic rivit setting tool). There is 3 plastic inserts under the bumper, pull the heads off, then pull the insert out. Your grill and bumper cover will then come off. The next part is to remove all of the Torx T27 bolts. Then disconnect the ambient air temperature sensor on the passenger side by the radiator. There is 2 clips (1 on each side) That hold the plastic in. Depresses them with a small pair of needle noise pliers. Push the air box clip through and the ambient air temperature sensor harness clip through. Once the plastic frame is off, release the electrical connectors for the head light harness, then the whole frame comes off. Once the frame comes off, on the passneger side is the fan relay. I like to use the after market Dorman fan relay because it comes with a new electrical pigtail. It is available from your local parts store. Dorman Part # 902-303. Good Luck

Tow bar (mounts) front end of larado


Use the same bolt holes the front bumber uses. You may have to build a bracket that attaches to the frame horns where the bumper mounts and using longer bolts (grade 8) pinch the bumper between the mount and the frame horns. Attach your tow tongue to this mount.

How do I remove front bumper and right fender?


What you need is a good half inch ratchet and a breaker bar. Can't tell you what size sockets to use, but you can figure that out. Remove any wiring attached to bumper then loosen bolts that secure it to the frame (it usually helps to spray hardware with good penetrating oil the day before, then again just before you start.) Use breaker bar to get bolts loose... depending upon rust level, sometimes you may need a short pipe over the handle to get more leverage. Don't beat on anything with a sledge hammer or you may trip impact sensor & won't be able to start car afterwards. Otherwise, it's just bolt off, bolt back on and your'e finished!
