SOURCE: How do I replace the interior LH door handle 97 Jeep Wrangler?

you will need a t-20 or t-15 torx bit driver to remove 2 screws holding the handle this is all that holds them on, on once you have a replacement handle it is easier to remove 2 lower screws on the door panel and unsnap the door panel to loosen it this will allow space making it easier to reinstall new handle just slide each end into the slot and reinsert 2 screws to not fully tighten until door panel is snapped back in. the panel is held on with clips and can be released using plastic pry tool around door panel edges.

SOURCE: inside door handle rod on a Jeep Wrangler 1999

You will need to remove the door panel. Most use a special clip to attach it to the lock mechanisim. Look in the bottom of the door to find the clip that fell off. If you can't find it you will have to go to chrysler to get another clip or try a wrecking yard and they will probably just give it to you.

Remove the inner door panel and check to make sure that the linkage rod that goes between the outer handle and the latch is connected. It's possible that the plastic end clip broke.

Rear door handle broken. Mazda mpv 2001. lock works fine.


The relay rod inside the door has broken (not likely), one of the retaining clips that hold it in place are broken (most likely) or the tab on the door handle assembly is broken (again not likely). to gain access you will have to remove the door panel. You did not say whether the handle you are having a problem with is the interior or exterior but to remove the door panel you will need to have the door open, you might want to purchase a Haynes or Chilton manual for your car to get the proper instruction if you have never removed one before.

Removing exterior door handle on 2001 Jeep Wrangler


thundergod is right - there is a wire retainer clip that helps to secure the plastic crank to the metal post.

To remove it, I used a fat screwdriver to wedge between the bottom of the crank and the door panel. This gave me enough clearance to see and remove the wire retainer clip. Using needle-nose pliers, I managed to snag the clip. A quick pull and the clip was out and the crank handle popped right off.

After that, there are three torx screws that hold the interior panel in place - two at the bottom and one toward the left center of the panel.

But this is the easy part - removing the exterior handle is a bear...you'd be better off paying someone with the appropriate tools and knowledge to do that for you.

Driver's door is not opening using exterior door handle


Normally it will be the small retainer that holds the inside of the door handle to the part that hooks to the latch assembly. Or it is possible that the door handle part is broken, but not likely. You will have to have the window raised, and remove the door panel and look inside the door panel where the handle attaches to see what the problem is. May help to have a flashlight. These are sometimes difficult to fix as there is not much room to work & the parts have to be attached for the exterior handle to work. Rick

The passenger door will not open 1993 Jeep Wrangler


assuming that this jeep has not been wrecked recently, the only way to get that door open is to remove the door panel while the door is closed, at least enough to reach the door latch inside the door, once reached you can operate it and release it to open the door, I will tell you that the likely hood of damage to the door panel will probably occur, I have had this problem before and I had to cut a hole in the panel reach in and open the door, sorry it can't be simpler. if you feel the latch operating and you have recently ran into something, try pull the door handle from inside while pushing the door open
