Locking mechanism on 95 Jeep Cherokee Sport stuck in ''up'' positio
How do I "pop" the locking mechanism on the inside of the door so thedoor will latch close? The mechanism was accidentially pushed up in there so now thedoor will not hook on to the metal loop bar to remain shut. Ive tried pushing the outside button and pulling the inside while trying to get it unstuck but no luck. Thanks

don't know if this is going to be any help at all. But we purchased our 1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee a year ago and I just now learned that the rear window even opens. Did you find the switch that makes it pop open? If not it is just under the ridge under the window but above the handle to open the hatch. You just put your hand on it and push upwards. Hope this helps!! ALSO, THE JEEP HOLD PRESSURE WHEN OPENING IT..NEXT TIME GIVE IT A LTIILE PUSH ON THE TAILGATE LID WHILE PULLING THE HANDLE..IT WORKS GREAT ON THIS ONE. EVEN AFTER THE FIRST OWNER BROKE OFF THE DANG KEY.. HOPE IT HELPS
*I went by body shop for this same type issue with a 98 grand cherokee * the body shop guy removed the plastic sheild and adjusted a cable that interacts with the locking mechanism, took 5 seconds, cost me $20 for his time, works good as new.
remove door panel which is attached by screws,peel away plastic liner and look inside door at back of door handle..using needle nose pliers pop off the small steel rods that are for inside door mechanism,then remove the one bolt that attaches the handle to the inside of door and from outside of door remove handle.Replace in reverse order!
If all the doors do not lock or unlock when using the passenger side switch, then the switch itself is probably bad.
If the passenger side switch locks or unlocks all the other doors except for its own, then the power lock solenoid inside the door is bad or jammed. If it is jammed, try locking and unlocking the door manually while activating the switch to work its way free.
