No, on the V6 you never need to remove the cover. The drain plug is well rearward of the cover.

(You also do not have to remove skid plates to get at the drain plug, and I have never had leaks from oil dripping onto the skid plate).

Sorry it took so long, but here is the cover below the front of the engine (between block and radiator fan) of my 2011 V6:

Re: Missing cover over oil filter

Thanks for taking the time for the photos. I can't tell in the photos, but what's that held in with, a bolt?

Re: Missing cover over oil filter

Hello,

Not sure if that helps, but there are several different Belly Pans available, maybe one with the opening. On the photos for me it looks like there is no cover, it's just closed.

Anyway, those would be the #(but I haven't checked what the difference is);
68091772AA BELLY PAN. Front. . [ERB]. $38.70 (ERB=3.6)
68037063AD BELLY PAN. Front. . [EX0], [EXF]. $111.00 (EXF=3.0 Diesel)
55079191AD BELLY PAN. Front. . [EZH]. $41.00 (EZH=5.7)

While I don't like this opening, it's just a dirt collector, I probably bolt a plastic piece in. Definitly cheaper than 38 bucks. As nobody sees it, easy fix ;-).

BR
Alex

I looked at the cover again from above and below and can see no fasteners.

There are tabs along the right edge of the cover which grip the bottom side of the opening, and the left side has what looks like a lifting tab on the top side. Both of these show on my previous photos above.

The best I can figure is that the cover is a tight press fit. But with subzero temperatures here, I am not about to pry on it and break it (both the cover and lower shroud it fits into are plastic. They are not skid plates, but are intended to smooth out the underbody airflow for lower drag.

Also, the cover is difficult to reach from above (you would need four foot long arms to press it down), so maybe that is why Jeep dropped it from some later models.

Added: On further reflection, it would make more sense if the cover is a press fit from below. It seems that would still work with the tabs I can see.

Has anyone else had the cover off?

I think those part numbers are for the belly pan which doesn't include the cover.

Re: Missing cover over oil filter

My dealership ordered the belly pan that has the "cover". I looked at it the other day and it has the cover but after looking at it, it doesn't look like it opens in any way.. I'm getting it put on in a couple of days. Ill post the part number so you can get the right one if you so choose.

If you get a chance, see if the part they give you also applies to the V8, though I doubt there is a difference. I also wonder if the access cover has a different part number on it then the part number for the entire belly pan.

I'll bet that original oil filter is on really, really tight. If you will be changing it yourself, make sure you get a good snug fitting oil filter cap wrench to help with removal.
