I need a schematic of the linkage in the '95 Wrangler if possible. If not, can you tell me what holds the linkage onto the "inside" door mechanism? The linkage has come loose from the "inside" door handleset. I can barely get my arm into the door enough to "feel" the hole in the back of the handle where the linkage attaches. Not being able to actually see the connection, I can't figure exactly how to get the end of the linkage rod into the connection hole on the back of the handleset. If I do get the two connected, what's going to keep them connected?
Thank you very much for any help you can give, Eshel

Re: Door linkage on '95 Wrangler.....
There is a small plastic clip that fits in the hole on the handle then the rod slips into it and the plastic clip snaps over the rod to hold it in place most times the plastic clip falls off and can be found in the bottom of the door, if you cannot find it your local parts store should have the clips.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

The horn souds to alert you to the fact that the vehicle has not locked correctly, this is normal. The cycling of the door locks is a common fault. Inside the door actuators there are two switches which tell the control unit when the doors are locked or unlocked. If you issue a lock command (from the remote) and the control unit does not receive the correct signal from these switches, the control unit unlocks the doors and sounds the horn. Disconnecting the door actuators has the same effect as this prevents the door lock sensors from sending the correct signal to the controller. So, the cause is usually one of the door locks has been contaminated with water and the contacts have corroded. You cannot disassemble the door actuators to clean the contacts, you can only replace the entire actuator. Water (usually from rain) gets past the window seal, drips onto the lock mechanism and then runs down the actuator rod and into the actuator. It then sits in the bottom of the actuator damaging the contacts. Now, its usually the drivers door actuator as this is the door and window used the most but, If any of the windows have been left open or partially open, water will get into the actuators causing this problem. If the vehicle has been involved with the floods, the same can happen. Replacement is quite simple but make sure you get the rivets which hold the actuators inside the door as using nuts and bolts is very difficult and may foul on the window as it winds down. Remove the door fittings and the inner door trim, cut the seal in a manner which allows you to reseat it and wind the window all the way up. Disconnect the wiring harness to the lock and drill out the rivets. carefully remove the linkage rod and dont break the clip. Fit the new actuator to the linkage and connect the wiring again. Hold onto the actuator and cycle the door locks holding the courtesy lamp switch in. If all is well, the doors should now lock correctly. If all is well, refit the actuator with the new rivets and refit the door seal and trim etc.. Done..
Door mechanism came apart inside the door. This can be a real pain if you cannot open it at all. You will need to take out all of the screws inside door handle and behind it. Pop out the plastic holding pieces that keep the door trim stuck to the metal part and pull the trim up and over a little bit to try to get to the linkage and get it open. Then you can pull the trim up quite a bit and see what linkage came apart and try to snap it back together and/or replace the linkage. Have you tried to open it from getting inside it? Sometimes when the linkage fails you can still open it from either side. Hope you get it going with this info and thanks for using FixYa.
There are plastic connectors that attach to the rod and attach to the latch. The rod usually hooks into the inside latch, the rod may be held to the door by some clips. Then the rod connects to the latch with a plastic retainer clip.
If you're lucky, on the inside of the door, will be a triangular panel
right behind the mirror that you can pop off. If you're not as lucky
and it's one piece or the panel is blocked by the door panel, you'll
need to remove the door panel to change it.
On the inside trim,
you can remove screws (these screws may be covered by filler pieces or
may be visible, or they may require you pry a plastic piece off that
covers the screws) that are by the door handle,
arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the
panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want
to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to
get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel
and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and
disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can remove the bolts
holding the mirror onto the door
I had same problem. it was not broken into. the screw that holds lock cylinder in fell out. to get inside door is easy. remove screws around border all sides of door and one in middle near speaker. the gentley snap door away from the two clips on inside and lift up off window opening . peel back plastic and you will see the lock mechanism. if need be ( i had to) you can unplug the automatic locks, window and other electric harnesses attached to door inside cover. the lock cylinder will be in bottom of door w/ a brass hex screw. there is a white piece of plastic insert in the hole of lock mechanism and reattach (snap onto bar). its all easy no schematic needed if you have a lil mechanic ability. good luck.
