There shouldn't be any mounting bolts to remove as such. The struts should just pop off after removing a retaining clip.

there is also two bolts per side on the top part {black part} of the strut the new ones have illustrations on the package just did mine today took about 30 minutes and a 1/4 inch nut driver.

Prop the hood of so it cannot fall. Each strut will have four retaining screws. Two screws on each and of the strut. Remove the strut retaining screws. Reverse the process to install the new struts.

Prop the liftgate up securely with a 2x4 to get easy access to the struts....the liftgate is HEAVY and will hurt you if it falls closed while you're doing the replacement. The struts are held on top and bottom with small clips at the pivot point. Just pull the clips out, remove the old struts and reverse to replace. 15 minute job and easy to do.

The Grand Marquis has shocks, not struts. They are simple bolt on parts.

There are many ways you could replace the fuel filter in a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee such as taking it to a garage. You could use the manual as a step-by-step guide as well.

Should be clips at each end of struts- - slide them back and strut will come pop off of stationary pins I have a 1993 Jeep grand Cherokee i bought new struts from autozone about 20 bucks attached to the lift gate there are 2 screws and attached to the body by near the taillight there is a ball with a pin holding it on, pull the pin out then pull the strut off. the remove the screws attached to the lift gate. have a stick or something to hold up the lift gate when you are taking these off....

The fog lights on a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee are accessed from the wheel wells. Remove the rivets for the dust covers to gain access to the lights. Twist off the bulbs and replace them.

Liftgates are heavy as ......well, they're heavy, and those struts wear out over time. So.....to replace the struts you have to have a 2X4 to prop the lift gate up so that it won't pop you in you head. Then really, if you just follow the directions to remove the clips on the struts it turns out to be a 15 minute job. Go to a reputable parts store and buy the replacements. This is an easy and inexpensive fix.....probably around 20 bucks per strut. Just be careful because if that liftgate falls on your head the medical bill will cost a hell of a lot more than the struts.
