Re: MY15 KL Limited

OK, I ended up with these bulbs for the interior. They are short enough to fit. I tried a few but these fit well and were the whitest (Rather than blue) Some didn't fit a tall (Too long, too wide, etc)

Requires a bit of brute force to remove the domes. I used plastic leverage tool (Looks like a spatula) Start from the front, near the windscreen, pull down toward the back. There should be 2 clicks as each clip comes off (one on each side near the front. Once off, disconnecting the cable is easy, and then to pull the bulbs out, just lever it from side to side.

Before fitting everything back, plug the cable in and make sure the bulbs light. If not, you need to reverse the polarity. (And be careful as the bulbs will be hot!) Fitting it back, just reverse the procedure.

ebay T10



For the rear dome, it's even easier. Again from the front, lever and pull towards the back. Again 2 clips, but these tend to fly off once it's pulled out. Remove the cable, and this one is a twist lock.



The vanity bulbs were a pain to replace. You need a very thing screwdriver, preferably plastic, and level the covers from the plastic side (rather than from the mirror) If it doesn't work, then very, very carefully lever from the mirror side. I had to do this for 1 of them, but I wouldn't recommend this method as it sound awful and the possibility of cracking the glass is high

There's 4 clips on the cover, 2 on each longer sides. Once this is out, I used a rubber coated narrow screwdriver to lever the bulb out from the connection side, and then my fingers (but a pair of needle nosed rubber tipped pliers would work better) wiggle it up and down until I could pull the bulb out. Putting the led in you just need to be very careful. As you put it in, it will light up. Don't stare into it. And if it doesn't light, pull it out and reverse it. Plugging the cover back is the easy part.

ebay T5





I used these for the boot and glove box. They are more exxy but provide a touch more light. If I hadn't bought it first up, I probably would have just used the other set. They are long, and can barely fit in the space for the boot and glovebox.

From the side nearer the rear seats, you can slide a thin flat tool or screwdriver and start levering from the top and bottom. If you can get a finger hold, you can try pulling it towards you (back to boot opening) The cable isn't long so don't pull too far. Again, hot bulbs!! Flick the cover off to the back (There's 2 detents on each side holding the plastic on.)

Quality control isn't great with these bulbs. Some fit with half an mm to spare, and others are half an mm too long. (Out came the know to shave a bit of the plastic off to push the bulb more into the T10 socket)

T10 more SMDs



There's a guy on ebay that sells all the required bulbs as a kit. (Even for the Grand Cherokee) Will see if I can find the link.

Wouldn't recommend putting the T10 LEDs on the rego plate rear. It will through an error, even those that state that it is CANBUS version. (Will still work though)

Smile Re: MY15 KL Limited

What I did to my current Santa Fe and will do to my new trail hawk was I had my local auto elec wire a set of blue under dash leds to the door opener circuit . This gives great ambient look and the fade when the interior lights go out. I also had the sparkie wire my garage opener into the dash to emulate function in the us model.

Ālso a question: Can anyoneconfirm that the toll tags will function from within the dash compartment.

Thanks,
Bazza

The little flip-up storage compartment on top? Yes, I can confirm that the e-tag works when stashed in that. No need to remove it.

Re: MY15 KL Limited

Our 2015 KL Limited turned 12 months old on 12 December 15.

10,500 km (as of Dec 15) and no complaints; not even a squeak or a rattle. The Jeep continues to impress

But after 12 months I still haven't tried the Auto Park feature yet

All the best for the New Year everyone

Re: MY15 KL Limited

Marty, good to hear from you. Just like you, my KL is fantastic. No issues to report at all after 14 months of ownership and more than 15,000 on the clock. I just love this vehicle to pieces.

Re: the auto park. You have to try it. It really works well. I first tested it in the school car park - a bit more of a leisurely atmosphere compared to the shopping mall. Even when you think it is guiding you into one of the vehicles parked next to it (ie: what you see on the reversing camera and concern mounts), it doesn't. You just stay with it (and its instructions on the EVIC) and it parks perfectly, every time.

If I had one tip, it would be to keep your hands well clear of the steering wheel. It spins at quite a rate of knots (which is a bit surreal when you see it first time) but you would cop a bruising if a finger got in the way.

Give it a whirl - just for laughs. It's great.

Re: MY15 KL Limited

Hi All

Auto Park is awesome..... but be careful, I used it and without noticing it the space was behind a tray top ute, the sensors obviously sense things that are quite low, thus I had to abort the park when the overhanging tray of the ute got alarmingly close to the passengers door.

Apart from that I love the function and all other things in the Cherokee.

Regards

Grahame

Re: MY15 KL Limited

I thought I read somewhere here, a while ago, that one Aussie owner had these front Splash-Guards on their KL.

I sourced this photo from the MOPAR (USA) Accessories Brochure, but my local Jeep Dealer says that they're not available for right hand drive cars (What??? Please explain???,.... he couldn't ).

I'm going to try another Jeep Dealer, but in the meantime does anyone know if we can get these here (Down Under), and if so, at what price.

Cheers

Re: MY15 KL Limited

My local Jeep Dealership said, "Can't be done, sorry....; the KL MOPAR Splashguards are not for RHD cars".

However the Jeep Dealership, where I bought the car, said, "Yes, no problem Although the KL MOPAR Splashguards have been updated from the 2014 photo that you've provided us".

[IMG][/IMG]
EDIT: Picture from 2014 MOPAR Catalogue. Not true; got this photo from internet images, not the 2014 MOPAR KL Catalogue. My bad, sorry. As a guess, this photo could be from when the KL was in concept.


So here's what I got.

$275 supplied and fitted from Jeep Stealership OUCH!

Re: MY15 KL Limited

We're just about to head off on a 2,120km Road Trip from Melbourne - Hunter Valley - Melbourne.

During the past 15 months 90% of our travelling has been City (Stop & Go) driving, without any issues So it's time to test the KL on a lengthy Freeway trip

We (2 occupants) are not towing anything, but the back seats are folded down and we're packed with Camping Gear.

Will the trip be a , or a ? I'll report back here next week.
