Re: WK2 Sump Protection Plate

ok, I think I found it, makes sense they left access to that.

No can do at the moment. My dicky knee is playing up so I can't easily get under the car till the knee clears up. I'm really itching to get the nutserts in with the tool I made up. Thanks for the offer of a tool. I might still need it if mine doesn't turn out.

Thanks Benn0! I notice you still have the felt sump cover in. I took mine out. With the sump skid plate on, I really can't see the reason for the felt cover other than possibly sound proofing or insulation of the sump in arctic conditions. In Oz conditions, it's likely to be just a dirt and water trap. If anyone can come up with a good reason for it, I can easily put it back.

Re: WK2 Sump Protection Plate

Yeah, I figured they are just too lazy to take it out when they put the plates on....

Mine came from the factory with the felt sandwiched in-between.

Thanks for the photo. I always wondered what that hole was for! LOL! On the 5.7L the sump plug is not positioned there, so the hole just seems arbitrary.

Cheers,
Bill

That's weird, it's not like the CRD is their big seller. Maybe they thought it would be the engine most likely to go with an Off-road Adventure pack. Bill, are you going to cut a hole for your sump plug?

I can't say for sure, but I think the 3.6L might be accessible in the same spot, making the 5.7L the odd man out. Can anyone confirm?

No need to cut a hole, it's easy enough to remove the sump plate. I think Jeep decided the same, since all of the new 'Belly Pans' are one piece without a hole.

Cheers,
Bill

Here you go! You could supply custom belly pans with engine specific holes.

The knee is better. Got the nutserts in and the plate is good to go. I used my home made tool to set the nutserts. It wasn't as straightforward as I thought. The problem is stopping the nutsert from rotating as one tightens the bolt to set the them. There is too much friction between the bolt thread and the nutsert thread and not enough friction holding the nutsert in. Some grease on the thread and a nordlock washer up against the nutsert helped but a proper tool would have been better. Yes, it was so much easier putting the rear M8 bolts in first. I did it the other way around before and it was a pain getting the M8s to catch.
