I had this same issue the first few times I tried to latch my soft top. The trick is to stretch the top. Pick a nice hot day, leave the top "baking" in the sun for quite a few hours. The way I did it was to latch the front part of the top and pull the back corner pieces down hard and tuck the tabs into the body to lock them in place. The top will need to "bake" in the sun again for a bit. I wouldn't put it back down at night the first few times. As the night cools the top, it may go back to the original size and you'll be back where you started. I found that playing the "stretch" game on a hot weekend worked just fine. Of course, it's still a little tight, but if it wasn't, it would leak!!!

Good luck with your top!

Need to replace inside door handle that broke completely off. How do I replace this section?


you will need to remove the cover around the handle they are easy to brake from the inside of the outside cover ring go from the inside with a small screw driver and slide between and pry the cover up it has 4 mounting points top left top bottom right and left.
next pop off the switch from the front slide a screwdriver at the front leading edge and push it towards the back of the door panel and lift gently there is a flange on the rear of it that holds the rear of the assembly down dont pry up on the back lift the front and slide it forward unplug all the wires. remove the two screws inside the door arm rest where you pull the door shut. the cup to close the door. next you need to remove the mirror cover at the front top of the door panel slide a screwdriver pry
straight out. using a door panel clip tool. slide under the panel at the bottom rear corner to find the clip and pry the clip out of the hole. work your way around the door to each clip. sometimes you can pull the panel off with your hands but if you are not experirenced you might break some clips or the door panel be nice to it dont break things. all the way around the sides and the bottom are released then pull away from the door and hold the bottom and lift up and hit the top of the door handle with your hand so the clips will release accross the top. remove the light socket from the rear bottom of the door. place the panel somewhere so you dont scratch it up. now remove the rivet from the handle. I punch the center out then use a sharp chisel to punch it off. you may want to drill the rivet. up to you. then the handle slides forward and you have to disconnect the linkage clips from the handle. install the new handle make sure the lock rod is in the hole that slides the lock. hook up the linkages new slide back in position and rivet then reverse the prosess of removing the handle

The small storage compartment in the back of my 2007 2-door jeep wrangler Rubicon is wet, soaked with water. Where is it coming from?


If your Jeep has a soft top -

I have a 2007 Unlimited and has the same problem. My Jeep is a soft top and the water came from the rain and a poor seal of the back window. Part of the problem came from the displacement of the plastic "c" shaped "rear window bar holder" that clips on to the rear on either side of rear window. Ocasionally the clip pops out of place and breaks the seal between the rubber on the window and the rear sides of the Jeep.

My soft top is not working, wont go down, when I release the catch the windows go down and when i press the up button to close thr roof the windows close but roof doesnt


No doubt your soft top issue has long been resolved but just in case someone has a similar issue:
I started to open my A4 Soft top externally using the door key method and like an idiot I must have disengaged the key before the soft top was fully down. I was unable to activate the opening or closing of the soft top automatically using either the key or soft top switch inside. I then manually closed the soft top using the users handbook and manual tool supplied. Soft top would still Not open automatically and the soft top alarm would activate. I solved the issue by manually opening the soft top fully and then manually closing the soft top fully. This seemed to have reset whatever had gone askew.

Soft top 97' problem


Open the trunk. Remove the material covering on the left hand side. You will see 2 electric motors(similiar to the ones that wind the windows). One motor open and closes the roof lid the other brings the roof up or down.

These motors can be engaged and disengaged manually. 

First check that the motor's are working. 

If the motors are working. 

Then engage and disengage until they are in sync and open and closes the roof in the correct order.

Please come to me for further assistance.

Replace the headlight bulb


Remove the plastic access panel by pressing down on the tab at the top of the penel and pulling the top of the panel towards the engine and off. Needle nose pliers may help with the next steps to remove the spring clips. There are 2 bulbs, the top large bulb is the low beam. To remove it, first remove the socket attached to it, then press the top of the metal spring clip towards the front of the car and towards the passenger side (look closely at the clip to see the latch holding it. The clip then swings back towards the engine. Remove the old bulb, install the new bulb, replace the spring clip, re-connect the socket. (Don't touch the bulb, if you do clean it off with a lint free cloth and alcohol). To replace the lower bulb (parking light), remove the socket, then release the lower end of the spring clip, look closely and you'll see the latch holding it. You have to press it towards the front of the car and swing it towards the passenger side. It will swing up and release the bulb. Replace with new bulb, replace spring clip, connect socket. Don't forget to replace the plastic cover panel by inserting the bottom tabs into the sockets and snapping it closed at the top by pressing it towards the front of the car.
