Aug 27, 2007 (7:51 am)
I have a 2007 Wrangler X with 17" tires.Whenever I brake the Jeep seems to pull to the right -hard.BUT not all the time .It appears if the wheel is off line just a little it will pull to the left.Been to the dealer twice.He lined it up.HE also checked all the brakes-caliper-slides and all seemed ok. mJust seems to be uneven brake preassure when applying brakes.I drove one on the lot set up the same and it also appeared to do it.DO I have a brake problem,dealer problem or a tire issue.Also rear end sprung a leak-not sure if cover seal or pinion gear .Any advice helpful.Braking is always an adventure -never kow which way I might go.Thanks
#39 of 229 '07 Sahara Unlimited -Rattling over bumps
Aug 28, 2007 (9:41 am)
When I hit bumps with the front tires there is a clanking/rattling underneath the vehicle. I really only notice it with the windows and/or top down, but it's unmistakeble. Sounds like something may be loose, but this is my first Wrangler and don't know if this is normal when driving over rough pavement. It's got less than a 1,000 miles on it and has sounded like this from day 1. any thoughts?
#40 of 229 horn ribbon cable (unwound)
Aug 28, 2007 (4:05 pm)
Made a terrible mistake, put on a speed control kit and had it all back together and for some dumb reason I decided to pull the steering wheel back off, forgot to unplug the horn wire and pulled the ribbon cable out of the housing, for the life of me I cannot figure out how to rewind it.
Anybody ever rewind them?

Here is an update on this mess, according to the dealer service this cannot be rewound, must be replaced, cost me $488.00 to giter-dun.

I didn't realize that cruise kits were available yet for '07s. Sounds like you damaged the clockspring.
Price sounds a little high, how does it break down?

They charged me $222.89 for the clock spring and $222.50 for labor. I should have just wound the wire back inside and let it snap and pled ignorance and let the warranty have it.

Price for the clockspring is probably about right, but it really shouldn't take more than an hour to fit one.

One thing is for sure they will not get anymore of my money.
Like I mentioned if I had used my head and stuffed the wire back in they would not have known I did it.
#46 of 229 Help Leaking!
Sep 26, 2007 (8:16 am)
I have had my 2007 Wrangler X Unlimited with half metal doors for 4 months now and I love it except... now it is in the shop for its 3rd time for leaking. No one at the dealership seems to know what to do. When it rains the rain comes directly in through the window and on to the seats, by the time the rain stops leaking the floor is soaked the seats are soaked and anyone in the truck is soaked. This is not a drip its a pour. Is or has anyone experienced this same problem? Any solutions? Anything that could help at all?
#47 of 229 Seatbelt flapping
Sep 29, 2007 (8:27 am)
Traded in my '04 Wrangler X for an '08 Wrangler X a few nights ago. Today was the first time I took the '08s top down. As soon as I got going, I noticed this rather annoying flapping noise that my driver's-side seatbelt was making. It was flapping against the inside of the car (the column that it is housed). Has anyone experienced the same?
