    Unfortunately, this is all too often the case with dealership service departments. When they were looking at my reverse light that wasn't working, I heard the technician crack the plastic trying to open the sealed tail light. He said he didn't break anything but the lights are still intermittently failing. Still trying to get it replaced under warranty.

    Me, I'll pay the $4 and install the check valve myself.

    For you guys doing the check valve install yourself, do not follow Mopar's install directions to a tee. Do not pull the black tubing from the rear washer nozzle. It's on there real tight and you risk damaging the nozzle's connector when you go to twist/yank the hose off.

    Just measure 2 inches from the end of the hose where it plugs into the nozzle. Now with a medium size pair of sharp scissors, just cut the hose at the 2" mark. NOW, just take you check valve and plug it into the two resulting hose ends. Be sure the arrow on the check valve points toward the washer nozzle. Now, run the rear washer to force any air out of the line and to insure all is well..

    The parts counter told me this part in the first post does not show that it fits the JL, It is a Cherokee part. Ordered it and will do the install next week.

    Man, sounds like you need to find yourself a new dealership. What happens if you need and engine or tranny under warranty? Thatís a big expense out of pocket.

    My local dealer wants $5.50 for the same part. They don't stock it and were hesitant to order it because they have to buy a 10-pack. I tried to get the same part in Oklahoma while on vacation and they wanted $10 for it.

    I went into my local dealer and got the check valve for $4 out the door and installed it in there parking lot before I left, took all of 5 mins
    My insurance company asked me if my Jeep was modified and of course I said no...
