Re: Jeep service costs

Wesfil Oil Filter WCO163 is $14.50 inc. GST from Eziautoparts.com.au

Postage was $14.55 for 2 x fuel filters, 1 x air filter and 1 x oil filter. Not sure of the postage on one filter only.

Jeep service costs

Good luck

Apparently there are no brake boosters in Australia for the recall and it is not expected they will be available until August.
