1. Remove engine cover 2. Unplug CCV hose and remove red gasket. 3. Install CBE plug 4. Install silicone hose onto barbed end of the CCV hose heater. Find a hose clamp in garage and secure it. 5. Secure hose to something, route it into the frame and out of the frame, takes 3 seconds. You'll see what I mean, raising the car is not necessary. I will stuff it back into that hole for yearly inspections.
Notes: I have not trimmed the hose yet. Silicone hose gums up with heat and oil. I will update if too many fumes come into the windows.
Update: the amount of smoke that billows out of this hose is really funny. It doesn't smell horrible but I think my wife will eventually complain. I need to plan for plumbing to the exhaust.

I found the little gear. You know, the one that falls down under the glove box. I didn't do anything about for about a year fearing a difficult job. One day while browsing this forum I found a fellow Jeeper with the same problem and various members chimed in to provide the solution.
I replaced the gear today and decided to post a step by step guide. You can download the PDF file or you can view it as a web page. Click the links below.
Someone stole my antenna recently so I decided to make a step by step that shows how to replace it. It is pretty easy. In this DIY I am dealing only with replacement of the external antenna not the complete wire all the way back to the radio. Here it is. You can view it as a PDF or as a web page.
I've had problems with my transmission not shifting in to 3rd and hard engagements from a full or slow stop. I threw codes for input speed sensors and incorrect gear ratios etc so I've been looking for a fix and believe it's my conductor plate or it at least needs be replaced before it does fail. There are multiple problems that are caused by a bad conductor plate and I have found a very good video tutorial for anyone who wants to replace the conductor plate on the NAG 1, 722.6, WA580 and W5J400(CRD). Please note that if you are going in to limp-mode after replacing this part, you will need to have the code cleared from your TCM(Transmission Control Module). This part may well save you thousands of dollars for a new transmission. If you are having any transmission problems, consider replacing this part.
Also, as of this post, RockAuto has the conductor plates for a little more than $100 depending on which one your WK needs. They also include the plug which is another common point of failure for these transmissions. You will need to know the build code of DGU or DGJ etc for your transmission.
UPDATE: I replaced my conductor plate and every aspect of my transmission is perfect. Every shift is smooth and accurate. It doesn't up shift or downshift too early or too late and no late engagements from a stop.
OK... I finally got the inevitable glow plug module code and had to install a new module today. Here is a step by step procedure that I wrote up. I know there are others already posted, but here it is for what its worth. You can download the PDF file or your can click on the web link and view the procedure in your browser. Either way, its yours. I lasted 105,000 miles before this code struck.
