Better hope you still have the full warranty. Chrysler told me to screw myself.

To be fair I also did this at night with a flashlight.

That's actually the vibe I got from the guy I talked to, but we'll see.

I had my OPDA checked at the dealer today, and it was determined it needed to be replaced, but was caught in the early stages. I was told I'll have to pay no more than 50% of the cost. If Chrysler doesn't ask for the original one back the dealer said they'd give it to me.

Still no more chirpping. If you have an '05 or and '06 I'd strongly suggest doing the switch to synthetic Mobil 1 TDT 5W-40 asap, especially if you live where it gets eskimo cold.

I just did mine and mine looked just like the pictures Zetto posted. I did the Fog Mod and today I started my Jeep at -4 degrees. No chirping at all. When I pulled mine, it turned hard, but not rough. I have a new one ordered, but did the mod on my existing one. After greasing it, and spinning it a few times, smooth as silk!

Installed it, changed the oil to Mobil 1 and all has been great since.

BTW, I changed mine in a 65 degree heated 60x60 shop with plenty of light, snap-on tools and Sirius Satellite Radio on Classic Rewind!

I hate you

Good news to hear about the oil and modded OPDAs! Anxiously awaiting mine to show up!

Zetto, do you know if your gear was replaced by the Chrysler E05 TSB? If not, I think they will do that at no cost to you. Some of you guys with more experience with that please tell me if I'm wrong on that.

The gear on mine had been replaced and the replacement gear had 3 holes in it (for the rollpin). Two of the holes lined up (which is where the rollpin was on mine) and the other was at 90° to the other two and at a slightly different depth from the top of the gear. I'm not sure but my guess is if the two holes lined up ok they'd just install with the rollpin there and if not, drill a hole opposite the 90° one and install rollpin there. You guys feel free to chime in that know more about it.

lope,

I have a 2006 so I assumed that the recall did not apply but I will call my dealer tomorrow. I am pulling the OPDA in the morning and installing a zerk fitting until I can purchase a new OPDA or at the least a gear.

Correct, the E05 was based on that TSB with certain build dates. I forget the build dates but I don't think '06 was covered

Mine's an '06, built in '05. I believe an "S" as the 8th digit in the vin is a sure sign that said jeep has the problem as well.

Remember this is NOT a recall. If you call Chrysler they make that perfectly clear.

So Im joining the club. Bought my 06 TJ used 2.5 years back with 25000 miles. as I reach my warantee at 60000, check engine, cam shaft code, and so Im here. Build date is 3/06 - no recall.

I took out the OPD and had the wear on the gears and there was a great amout of play from the shaft to the housing. I found the same housing/shaft combination from an older jeep distributer: Swaped out the bushings and gear and it fit perfectly with no play.

No for the complex question. When I first scanned it said I had an 11.3 degree differntial between crank and cam shaft. When I replaced the fabricated OPD it now says I have a differential of 8.3.
What I am wondering is if anyone knows what the correct differential degree should be. I am using a Snap-On Modis.
Thanks
