I was informed of the TSB and they wanted $420 for the operation.
I purchased three new fuel separator filter units on EBay from Hall Chrysler Jeep in MIchigan. They're sitting on my shelf and I intend to use them when it needs changing. I figure by avoiding the migration to a new filter housing (the two I've had have worked fine and my 2005 CRD is running flawlessly) I can use the "old style" filters.
Three filters for $100. Ready, begin: http://tiny.cc/PMsUP

the fuel filter is an autozone# 33647...think it is about 25 dollars and comes with instructions to easily change out the water indicator.

If you have a belt chirp, it begs the following question: is the belt the original factory belt?
If so, then the belt could be dried out. I replace the serpentine belt every 35K miles whether it needs it or not.

Make sure the belt is routed carefully; mine chirped when I took the Jeep out of the 60,000 miles service. The alternator pulley must have the belt wrapped over more than half of the pulley. This is achieved by passing the belt towards the inside of the lower pulley. My serpentine belt was still good after 60,000 miles

good question...the term for a valve bender is an "interference motor". my toy diesel pu had an interference motor.

the belt has been replaced by the dealer 4 times as has the idler pulleys (a scheduled maintenance item). the chirp originates as a subtle noise every 5 or so revs but becomes louder under load (a/c and in drive with foot on the brake). most times it takes 15-20k miles before the sound is a constant nuisance but once it started back the day after the dealer replced the belt and another pulley.

The serpentine belt drives the fan, viscous heater, A/C compressor, alternator and one or two balancing masses if I remember correctly. The timing belt handles the water pump, camshafts and fuel pump. If the serpentine belt breaks, I would worry for the radiator.
