Not necessary to remove the skid plate. That's what the access hole is for. I used to always run mobil 1 but recently switched to penzoil with pure plus. It's the official oil of SRT so I figure it can't be wrong. I'm gonna switch to driven racing oils soon tho.

Re: How-to - Basic Maintenance

Can anybody guide me to a walk through of replacing rotors on both front and back. I know it's fairly easy on most cars. I'm also looking at doing stainless braided brake hoses at the same time. It's time to completely replace the brake fluid so doing this all at once seems the best move. This is for a 2011 WK2 limited, if that makes any difference with 18" wheels and Power Stop slotted rotors.

Slotted rotors? I'm surprised you needed them. Were you experiencing brake fade? How much does it reduce the life of your pads?

Re: How-to - Basic Maintenance

I don't need them per se, but I have trusted slotted rotors my whole life through years of riding crotch rockets and speed bikes through many places and year. I have had a not steel hose get pierced once and I am glad I caught it before things got ugly. I am just trying to replace parts that need replacing with better parts. Its what I do with wine and yes, I know its over kill.

Re: How-to - Basic Maintenance

How can I stop the airbag and seatbelt warning lights from coming on and constantly chiming even when driver and passenger are buckled in?

Re: How-to - Basic Maintenance

Good question. I haven't found a solution but that seatbelt airbag chiming is maddening when you have a couple of bags of groceries including milk, or beer and the WK2 thinks it is an underweighted, unbuckled passenger.

If it was Onstar it would probably notify the police of suspected child neglect. Thank goodness it's not.

For the meantime the back seats and front floor have to work.

Re: How-to - Basic Maintenance

Never have anyone in the back seats.
What if I just fastened the seatbelt back there, do you think that's all it would take? The airbag and seat lights come on at the same time.

2014 how many miles are on it? Coolant is good for 10 years and 150k miles theses days. Or are you draining it due to other repairs?
