Taking in for a Recall--Should I have them fix RMS?

I am taking my 2005 in for the transmission recall (cup plug on the auto transmission). It looks like they will inspect the tranny and replace the cup plug. SOunds to me like they will be in the neighborhood of my leaky RMS. Should I ask them to replace the Rear Main Seal while they are in there? I was planning to do the RMS myself in a month or so, but if they are right there one would hope that they would not charge an arm and a leg to just replace the seal too.

Anybody know exactly what the procedure is for the recall? Do they have to drop both pans, or just the transmission? If both pans are out, will they be replacing the RMS as part of the service anyway?

Any help/advice on this would be much appreciated.
Thanks

Not to hijack your post but do you know if that Recall affects any more model year TJs that have the same transmission?

When you have a choice, buy American made.

All I could find on specs

Safety Recall E14
Transmission Cup Plug Bracket

Your looking at about 3 hours flat rate time.


2005-2006 (TJ) Jeep(R) Wrangler

2005-2006 (HB) Dodge Durango

2005-2006 (KJ) Jeep(R) Liberty

2005-2006 (ND) Dodge Dakota

2005-2006 (LX) Chrysler 300C and Dodge Magnum

2006 (LX) Dodge Charger

This recall applies only to the above vehicles equipped with a 42RLE automatic transmission (sales code DG6) and a transmission build date code from TK2454 through TK1235. Many of the vehicles built within this transmission date range were repaired before shipment to dealers and therefore have been excluded from this recall.


To op have them check the TSBs for the rearmain...

I doubt that the amount of work required to replace the RMS won't change any because of the transmission work they will be doing. So you won't be saving any money by having them do the seal at the same time. You'll just give them the opportunity to take money from your pocket for something you were going to do for yourself anyway.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

Thank you, it looks like my 2004 doesn't need it.

Ok, sounds like I will be doing the RMS myself in a few weeks then. It is a shame that they fail so easily on the Jeep.
