2008 Liberty - Preventative maintenance

Including all fluids and filter change, several times a year I lube the entire Liberty. I use WD40. It displaces 40% of water, moisture. (hence Water Displacement 40%).

Today I notice, the intake tube was rubbing against the a/c aluminum high pressure line. ( first pic. arrow)

I loosen the clamp at the throttle body and repositioned the intake tube away from the a/c line. they was a black scuff mark on the line, cleaned it and noticed a "gouge" in the same spot.

Check for clearance between the a/c and intake tube.

Front door hinges. If there is any surface rust, spray WD40 and a cloth and wipe it off, then spray some on the hinge

Turn 180 degrees (Back of you) and you will see the rear door hinge exposed. Clean the surface rust and spray. Lube grease can be used on the hinges too.

Watching My wife backing in my Liberty, and I notice the left brake light was out. Here is what you will need to change the rear brake light bulb:

1 - 10 mm socket and wrench

1 - T-20 torx or star head driver

1 - 3157K bulb

Step 1. Remove the 10 mm bolts ( arrow). Gently Pull light assembly towards you.

Step 2. Remove the two torx head screws (arrow).

02251857.jpg


Step 3. Remove blown bulb, install new bulb. secure and Re-install Light assembly, steps 2 and 1.

If you do maintenance on your car you must have a set of torx in your tool box. Purchase the hollow point torx tips, they are for the security point torx, which are common in today's modern vehicle. Home depot (husky) has a set with handle for $8.99. harbor freight has them cheaper.

Torx (pronounced "torks") developed by Camcar Textron, is the trademark for a type of screw head characterized by a 6-point star-shaped pattern. People unfamiliar with the trademark generally use the term star, as in star screwdriver or star bits. The generic name is hexalobular internal driving feature and is standardised by the International Organization for Standardization as ISO 10664. [2] Torx Plus is an improved profile.

By design, Torx head screws resist cam-out better than Phillips head or slot head screws. Where Phillips heads were designed to cause the driver to cam out, to prevent over-tightening, Torx heads were designed to prevent cam-out. The reason for this was the development of better torque-limiting automatic screwdrivers for use in factories. Rather than rely on the tool slipping out of the screw head when a torque level is reached, thereby risking damage to the driver tip, screw head and workpiece, the driver design achieves a desired torque consistently. The manufacturer claims this can increase tool bit life by ten times or more.

Do not use any petroleum based sprays,like WD40,on any rubber bushing or boot as it will degrade the rubber.Plus all that junk does is collect dirt and dust and wears out stuff faster.Wash with hot water and soap at least once a week is the best method.
