Re: Bolt found inside front differential

To close the loop on this story, I just got the Jeep back today. It was at the dealer for 12 days while they waited for the front axle assembly / diff to come in. The service manager said the bolt...

Re: Help diagnose rattle near dash/front window!

I had a rattle that sounded like it was either in the A-pillar or right under the dash near the corner of the windshield. Turned out to be the windshield washer fluid hose rattling around against...

Re: Bolt found inside front differential

I'll be asking them for every detail when I pick the Jeep up. Given all the torque generated in the front diff, I bet it's unlikely that the bolt could have gotten wedged in the gears permanently,...

Bolt found inside front differential

Thought I'd pass this along for everyone's enjoyment. I was slowing down for a stoplight this morning, and right at the moment the tranny downshifted I heard a loud BANG. Loudest noise I've ever...

Re: flipper glass unlatces itself for no reason

Could possibly be something funky with the key fob. The early WK2 fobs have a button to release the flipper glass. It was the bottom left button (now blacked out on newer fobs, but you can still...

Re: How did HECK this Laredo get vented seats?

2 or 3 months ago, I saw two Laredo's on one dealer's lot with Overland seats. They were a dealer installed "option" (itemized on a separate window sticker). Weird stuff.

Re: Obx

It's a good ways up from Nag's Head, but you may as well drive up to the end of Route 12 in Corolla and check out the horses. You can drive for miles up the beach from there.

The RHR does have Gracenote database info, but it is in no way tied to voice commands. You can't use commands like "Play Beatles" unfortunately, but again that has nothing to do with Gracenote.

Re: Missed the boat!!
