Re: How To Replace Shifter Belt/Dust Cover.

Has anyone found a place to get one of these dust covers recently? I need one.

Re: How To Replace Shifter Belt/Dust Cover.

I have done this at least a dozen times, to tape my current cover back together. Can do it blindfolded, I think!! You can take it out in less than 10 minutes. Where do you get just a cover, without buying the whole console kit?

There has since been a TSB on the issue and a part number 68004146AC for the sliding bezel. Cost is $113 at the dealer, but better than $500+ for a whole new console.

Re: How To Replace Shifter Belt/Dust Cover.

Re: How To Replace Shifter Belt/Dust Cover.

You can buy a whole shifter on eBay for 150 bucks.
I can't get my plug out of the back so I will remove the whole console. I squeezed it with pliers and it said service brake system !

Re: How To Replace Shifter Belt/Dust Cover.

Hey that was an awesome write up. I feel comfortable doing it myself now. I just got a 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Inferno Red a week ago and I put it in drive last night and the dust cover broke. How do I get another one? Any help or direction would be great, I'm new to the Jeep world and I don't want to get ripped off by a dealer.

I really hate to say that they are not sold anywhere. Not even online. You'll have to start a thread on here and hope that somebody has one laying around.

However, I'm proud to say I'm "Commo"

Re: How To Replace Shifter Belt/Dust Cover.

Sorry to bump an old thread but can you use a shifter that has the 4 low handle on a car with full time AWD. I have a base 2005 Laredo that has a shifter issue but no 4 low handle. Will a shifter still work to replace?

The belt, yes.

The assembly itself, no.

I don't know but the belt that was originally in my shifter was rubbery which caused friction and probably was the reason it broke so easily.

The belt I replaced it with is plastic and gives less friction.

Is this true a replacement part exist for this with a TSB???? What is the TSB number I heard there is nothing to do except wait that someone sell when the part get replaced.
