First changed out the parking brake switch for a new one, I now have a parking brake light again.

Changed out PCV valve, old one was pretty gunked up.

Vacuumed out the interior, and when I reached the passenger floor and lifted the winter mats, I was greeted by this lovely sight under the carpet.



It especially infuriates me, as I just changed out the Evap core last summer, and just for good measure did the heater core (which was NOT leaking) while I was in there. Should have just left well enough alone.

Anyways, went forward after trying to clean up as much of the coolant as I could and went to deal with the sunroof that's been leaking forever. I finally realized that it wasn't the drains that caused the leak, it was the drain channel that runs across the back. The plastic piece that sits in the track for the sunroof moves back and forth freely on just the driver side, and something tells me it shouldn't. As a result, the drain doesn't actually sit under where the water would enter and just drips straight into the headliner, causing my head to get dripped on whenever driving in the rain.

This is the piece that I'm talking about:



I also posted this in the forums, hoping to get some more coverage here. Any ideas on if you can take this piece out and replace it without removing anything major (headliner/sunroof itself/etc). I feel like a piece has broken off on the left side that would stop it from moving back and forth.

On a brighter note, I ordered my Bilstein's so I could finally put on the lift

Either way, they aren't incredibly busy with real crimes, so trivial traffic stops are the norm around here. For example, just last night, my friend was pulled over because he crossed into the turning lane "too soon".

Another friend did his tail and headlights with the VHT and was constantly pulled over, day and night for it. (However, take it with a grain of salt, cause the kid drives like a pissed off 16 year old.)

So I'm hesitant to do it, because I just don't want to have to deal with the potential headache.
I left the white, and a strip if color right where the bulb is the brightest. It works very well. Its as bright as stock

Drivers socket is burnt up, put a new bulb and some bulb grease in it and both are working again. Has anyone replaced just the socket? I have a feeling it will be a dealership only part

I just discovered on Saturday that I also need to replace a socket.... I haven't investigated to see where I can get one, so post up your results. I'm going to try www dot am-autoparts dot com

**EDIT**

Well that search didn't take long (grin)

AM autoparts does not sell the tail light socket, but Auto Zone does....

It's a Jeep, it's not supposed to work right all the time.

The sockets are also on Amazon, I replaced mine with these Dorman ones and they've worked great.

Left it at home till I can figure out my overheating issue. I'm thinking its the thermostat switch or just dirty coolant. We shall see.

Let me know if Dealer is cheaper, I'm not sure I'd drive all the way to Dealer as cost of fuel would eat my $$ savings.


Autozone part number is 700 ... seriously,,, just 700
