  1. Rear camber out of whack but wait!

    Suspension and Tires
    When I installed my Stu coils spring about 8 years ago, it threw my rear camber out of spec into positive numbers. Top of tire towards outside of car. I figured it was normal since the springs/struts were more stretched out. So far it makes sense, right? Over the years, I replaced my rear...

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Hi Guys, Has anyone here got a picture of a rear engine mount for a 4WD 2010 Pat? I've been planning to replace my mounts but I got confused when I saw the 4WD rear engine mount from, the mount looks different from
  3. rear dome removal

    Since one of the two contacts for recharging the flashlight bent behind the plastic, and makes not contact anymore, I need to remove the rear dome light to pull it out. Is there some hidden spring, lock, whatever or I can simply pop it out with a screwdriver? Pat 2008 here. Thanks Edit: found...
  4. Stempf Industries, Rear Camber!

    Suspension and Tires
    Looking for rear camber arms? Or toe links? Well while looking for new stuff for my Patriot, I came across these. Adjusts on vehicle I believe, upto 2* camber adjustment. A bit pricey though. On ebay they can be found for just under $400cad a pair, locally is a different story. I tracked down...
  5. Another. Grinding. Noise.

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Hello All I have 2007 Jeep Patriot I bought a year ago, that has been awesome. Unfortunately, recently there has been a problem. Basically, about 2 weeks ago started hearing this grinding noise coming from the rear driver side and I just thought the brakes were starting to go. It sounded really...
  6. HOW TO: Removing rear window wiper!

    Figured it's about time I start making random guides on how to do things that could come in handy. These instructions were done on a 2008 Patriot, some minor differences may occur across the year. Disclaimer: I'm not responsible for any action or damage caused to your patriot when taking the...

  8. 2014 Jeep Patriot Rear Driver Wheel Squeal

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Our 2014 Jeep Patriot has a squeal in the rear driver side wheel. It is loudest when moving in reverse. The noise occurs when the brake is not pressed. We have verified the emergency brake is not engaged. It can be heard the most when backing out of parking spaces or moving forward at stop...

  10. Are there any spare wheel rear mounts?

    I was searching a little bit because my patriot came with a full sized spare that doesn't totally fit perfectly in the wheel compartment in the back. I didn't find any viable hitch mounts/rear mounts. I'm wondering if there are any that are better and reasonably priced or should I just opt for a...

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    Just had new rear brakes put on my 09 patriot 2WD manual. Mechanics, who I trust, told me that 99% of the time, it's the front brakes that go first. My front brakes are just past half worn, lots of city driving BUT I downshift a lot, because I can :) Tell me why my rears are wearing so fast...
  12. 2008 Rear Drum Brakes - Same parts as 2009?

    Suspension and Tires
    I've got a 2008 Patriot Sport 2WD w/2.4l engine, which came with the rear drum brakes instead of discs. When I go to Autozone or elsewhere to try to find rear brake shoes, their computer system shows the 2008 to only come with disc brakes in the rear, but they do show the 2009 with drum brakes...
