      A simple flat blade screwdriver. The gas springs simply just pop off, and the new ones simply snap back into place - very easy to remove and install.

      Repairing an hydraulic is fairly easy on most vehicles. There are some vehicles that will block access to the hydraulic or have confusing custom brackets. In that case, consult your owner's manual or a local dealership service department. For those with easy access, simply open your trunk, secure it in place making sure it will stay open once they are removed, remove the bolts for the old struts, and attach the new struts and bolts in their place http://4wheelonline.com/Smittybilt_Winches.134507

      Remove the tail light lens with a Torx style screwdriver. The bolts are accessed from inside the cargo area of the Grand Cherokee, to the left and right of the open hatch door. Inside the housing, you will find a row of three bulbs lined up vertically. The top bulb is the Grand Cherokee's brake lamp, the middle one is the tail light and turn signal, and the bottom bulb is the reverse light. Grab the middle bulb and twist it counter-clockwise to remove it.
      The tail light housing is then easily removed once the Torx-style screws are removed. After removing them you can gently pull the whole tail light assembly from the truck.

      Several possibilities; stress due to the body flexing (changing the geometry of the windshield posts) - sometimes occurs on off road conditions. Another possibility, is the windshield sealant or gasket overloaded or moved on one side - this would require removal / replacement of the windshield glass.

      If it does leaked through the sunroof, then it will need to adjust to waterproof it.
      Use the clear RTV and seal it the windshield surrounding rubber gasket. See this product http://www.amazon.com/.../ref=sr_1_1
