The belt is interchangeable, the PRNDL bezel is not. It has a curcuit board inside that connects to your transmission. A bad PRNDL bezel will put your WK in LIMP mode.....ask me how I know.

Re: How To Replace Shifter Belt/Dust Cover.

This is excellent information. You're a Saint for doing this. I've been driving around for 2 yrs with a busted cover because the dealership wants $1,000 to fix it. Here's my problem now. I've called every junk yard and parts dealer and no one sells a dust cover or even the bezel assembly with the cover. Any ideas on where I can get one if we're not as lucky as you?

You've done exactly what I would have done; call junk yards. There's WK's sitting in junk yards all over.

I'd even be willing to pay a good penny for a junk yard to ship a shifter belt to me. As long as it was the new plastic design that has less friction.

The older style is rubber and creates too much friction over time and will eventually break. Not cool.

Try calling dealerships all over and see if there is one that will be willing to ship one to you.

Hell, I'll contact my local dealerships and see if they have one and I'll let you know if they do or do not.

PM me your number for quicker communication.

Re: How To Replace Shifter Belt/Dust Cover.

Perhaps cause I'm in Toronto I'm not having junk yard success. Email me at Andrew.Tyrrell@sympatico.ca and I can throw you a couple bucks as a finder's fee. It'd be a huge help for a fellow Jeep enthusiast.

Gotcha. I'll start calling tomorrow. Hopefully I don't forget.

Re: How To Replace Shifter Belt/Dust Cover.

You'll have to start looking in junkyards. It sucks. Chrysler should be selling this piece seperately.

Exactly, or someone could have the good idea to make and sell some kind of upgraded spares

Re: How To Replace Shifter Belt/Dust Cover.

How does one disconnect the negative terminal? My husband is going to have to do mine once we find that shifter belt piece. Until then I have paper covering the groove to keep foreign objects from getting in there.
