I found one that looked pretty new at a salvage yard. On a wj, that sucker is squeezed between the left headlight and the airbox. It was easy to get out of the donor because bumper, grill and other stuff were already gone.
Factory svc manual says the unit is removed/reinstalled by removing only the airbox first. Did that, plus pulled the headlamp out, plus my rig has no fender liners or washer bottle to get in the way. Even then, it was a PITA to remove the old one (using vise grips on the wrong side of the bolt, where the threads extend into the wheel well).
I've only been able to put back two of the three bolts (8mm hex head). The space is so tight, I just can't get to the bottom bolt. Anybody done this replacement before? If so, got any suggestions on technique and tool?
