    Re: removing or disabling of the buzzer

    Okay. Looks like you have already been discussing this topic. Why post it again???

    BCM needs to be reflashed. It's not just a cut the wires act...its programmed into the system.

    Front door speaker Install

    has anyone already written a "how to" on installing front speakers to a KJ with the infinity upgrade, meaning it has the two mini amps with the speakers in the front doors?

    I would like to install my own if I could. But there seems to be a lot of wiring going on.

    Hello, does anyone have any idea how to remove the steering wheel housing cover in the dash, there are two screws underneath, but when I fiddle with the plastic it feels like they are glued together. A project requires access to key cylinder, and I don't want to break it! (Steering wheel mounted stereo controls wiring re-route)

    I took that apart when I was installing the foglights. It's kinda a pain in the side to get it apart, and I dont have any specific recollections to help you, but check the Foglght install PDF for a nice picture of the two screws.

    Good luck-

    So there are no brakets or clips holding it there, from what I can see in the pic. Normally things screwed in jeep have some play, and you can tell, but that part feels like there was something else holding it. Good to know, thanks!

    HOW TO: Replace Front Shocks

    I bought a 2002 Liberty with 73,000 miles and found that it was porely maintained. The spark plugs that I removed were worn to the porclin. Anyway I having the deler change all of the fluids. In addition I'm going to change all of the shocks. I looked at the manual and it indicated that I have to separate the lower ball joint to replace the shock and spring assemble. Has anyone done this without separating the lower control arm.

    Liberty Guru's, help clueless newbie install basic stuff!

    OK, so I'm planning on buying the front and rear tow hooks for my 07 Liberty. In addition, I'm also going to buy the much advised skid plates all around...all through that JParts.com place. With the free shipping it seems like a decent deal...though if anybody knows better, I'm all ears!

    So my question is...When you order all this stuff, does it

    A.) Come with the hardware needed to install it...bolts and stuff?

    B.) Come with instructions on where to mount all of it?
    (by this I mean super elementary stuff...like is it obvious where the
    bolts would screw in with the skid plates and hooks once I got under
    the Jeep?) Second part of the question, do I actually have to remove
    anything to install any of the skids?

    C.) With the tow hooks (front at least), I noticed that there are two plastic pieces of the bumper that appear they might pop out (as the pieces are outlined on the bumper), though I'm not sure if they really do, can anyone confirm this on a 2007 Liberty? I'm not sure if I want to use a Dremmel tool on a one-week-old vehicle quite yet!

    I just don't want to spend near $300 and have to be stumped installing anything...and end up taking my purchases to the dealer and having them install them. ](*,)

    Thanks in advance for the responses, and reading the long post! =D>

    All needed hardware *should* be included with the parts you are ordering. If it isn't, call JParts to confirm if it got left out. Mounting the skids should be relatively simple - there should be threaded holes already in the frame for the engine and gas tank skids, but for the transmission and t-case skids you'll have to install the super-nifty PITA DC nut-serts. These will go into hexagonal holes in the frame and then you'll mount the skids using them. All of the items should also come with those wonderful, cutting-edge German-type pictorial installation instructions; very minimal writing, but lost of pretty line drawings \:D/ As far as the front bumper goes, I think you'll need to cut the sections out, but it should be thin plastic at those points and easy to get thru.

    I wrote a thread a while back on installation instructions for just about every option you can get, you might look thru these before ordering just to be sure you know what it's all going to take. If you have any more questions just post up - there's plenty of people who've already been there and done that!

    Good stuff with that page you made! Got that thing bookmarked now!
    I'm sure I'll chime in with more questions as the parts arrive, but certainly appreciate the early advice and help \:D/

    Thanks again!

    Forgive me, I didn't see it posted here....does anyone have a basic how-to on how to install a Bull Bar? I ordered one and it's coming in the next two days and I'd feel better if I had a basic outline ahead of time. Thanks!

    Regarding the tow hook (front) install.

    The instructions appear to be for the older style bumper, where the fog lights are integrated into the bumper itself.
    http://site.justforjeeps.com/guide/82206124.pdf
    Whereas, for my Liberty at least, the bumper is a little different, as the fog lights are built into the grill.

    So, if you take a look at this dealer stock photo, it appears that the bumper doesn't need to be cut out...but to my understanding the perforated notches in the bumper (just above the tow hooks in the below picture) I thought it was basically the "guidelines" for where to cut the plastic to install them? :-k

    Any ideas...or anybody with a newer Sport that has installed them?

    Thanks everybody!

    Which one are you getting (brand/type)? Might be able to track something down with more info. I believe most of the bars made for the Liberty use the front tow hook mounting points, so it shouldn't be too difficult to do.

    Re: Rotors

    Jack vehicle up,remove whell/tire,remove 2 12mm bolts holding calipher on and tie up out of the way,remove pads,remove 2 bolts holding the calipher mount to the knuckel(21 mm I think),and then remove rotor.
