What do you have to do to replace the shaft. Its tapping really loud and is getting embarrassing. Im going to stop at advanced today to see if they have a repair manual also so I can stop asking all these questions. lol I do appreciate the help though.
you must replace the whole shaft
when you remove the the cam sensor you will see a half circle peice of metal in there mark it so when you put it back it it is facing the same way
it kinda a little short cut
it it doesnt fire up when you put it all back togetheryou might have to turn the oil gear shaft thingy ( kinda like setting the timing)
just make sure you put it back together the same way it came out and you should be fine
I picked up two of thos shafts on ebay for $30 all together they were used out of a wrecked tj
out off the two one of them had a tighter shaft
heres a pick of one removed with out the cam sensor
