I keep reading in posts about a tech article on fixing/cleaning the Cherokee's neutral safety switch, but I can't see to find the tech post they're referencing. A link in the right direction would help.

Thanks......

I was looking at that article as well, and I had a heck of a time getting my NSS of and basically broke it, all I can say is get a lot of PB Blaster WORKS AWESOME and took some sand paper and tried to sand down some of the built up crap on the stick that holds it on. Dont give up mine had 160k and it may be ignorant, but take a screw driver and keep prying, i thought i might break something but i didnt, spray, let it sit, pry a little, spray again. Also I know they are expensive but a guy on ebay sells em for 120 bucks new, cant beat, i already ordered mine since i knew i was going to brake my original one

I cleaned up my NSS a few weeks ago. When taking it off, you're gonna have to do a lot of prying. The hardest parts are the start of the prying, and the end of the prying. To get it started you just have to be patient. When you get to the end, I had to use a pair of pliers as a booster seat for the screwdriver.

Good Luck.

Here's some good shots of it:

<http://www.ktioffroad.com/2007/09/23/neutral-safety-switch-repair-or-how-to-save-200-in-4h/>

I'm thinking about putting together a very small "puller" to get it off without stressing up the plastic housing or the "attaching nut" threads as much.

Remember its a tapered, threaded soft metal collet that friction-locks the switch rotor to the shaft. If you back off the attaching nut too much so you can more easily pry on it, you can strip the threads.

The puller would attach under the nut where the tabbed washer is now and would have an allen screw captured so that it is pressing on the shaft's end face. You would just loosen the attaching nut enough to ease the collet's grip on the shaft then crank on the allen screw. You might need a few different lengths of allen screws to get the range w/o bumping into obstructions.

A better approach might be the same as above except replace the attaching nut with a tough steel nut with no taper so it doesn't "pinch in" the threaded collet even when brought up snug. I don't know what thread size would be required to do this.
