2006 Liberty Power Steering Hose
I just had to replace the power steering pressure hose on my 06 Liberty. It was seeping enough to fail the state inspection. I bought the hose from the dealership.
I was surprised to find that on the 05-07 Liberty, it's necessary to remove the bumper cover and the plastic piece that they call the "grille opening reinforcement." This is because the two bolts that hold down the power steering hose in the left front corner of the engine compartment are right under the headlight bucket. It seemed to me that to try to do this without removing the bumper cover just makes the job more difficult.
The job actually isn't very difficult, but you have to drill out the rivets that hold on the bumper cover. So before beginning the job, it would be a good idea to get the rivets (unfortunately I didn't do that). The part number for the rivets is 6506007AA. These are plastic rivets, as installed in the factory. It seems that some people use aluminum rivets instead, and that's probably a good idea, but I don't know where to buy them. They would be referred to 3/16" peel type rivets, if I'm not mistaken. Maybe someone else would be able to point to a supplier for the aluminum rivets. My 3/16 rivet tool worked OK with the plastic rivets. (By the way, a decent low-cost tool for bigger rivets is available from Amazon, made by Dorman.)
The fluid for the power steering is the same as in the automatic transmission. I used the MoPar ATF+4 synthetic, which is the factory recommendation.
After installing the hose, I just turned the wheel from side to side a few times to bleed it. This worked fine -- no noise, etc.
