Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee

1 Answer

1998 Jeep cherokee rear passenger door lock link rod is missing.

When I purchased my jeep, the rear passenger door rocker lock was rocking as if not attached to anything. I have since removed the panel to discover that the lock link rod going into the door was missing, as was the little plastic part that attached it to the door. I noticed that the plasic part was missing inside the door, not to the actual rocker itself.

My question is, where do I get this part? I cannot locate it anywhere. Are there any work arounds or temp fixes, or better yet, replacement parts?

Also, I noticed that the white plastic sheet that is in the other doors is not in this door, and there is the remnants of the sealer. Do I need this sheet? If so, where can I get it or make something to replace it with?

I would like to say that so far, this site has been extremely helpful and without you guys I would be lost. I am completely new to any type of vehicle repair.

Thanks in advance.

Nick

Best place to locate everything you need all in one place is a scrapyard. If you can find one that has been hit in the rear the stuff you need likely will be intact but the yard won't hesitate to part with it because the skin is bad.

I have a 1998 jeep cherokee and can not open rear (trunk) door It feels like the key is unlocking and locking, but raising the door handle will not let me open the door?????


spray a light lubricating oil into the locking or catch mechanism, you will need to have the door opened already though. WD 40 should work well. I have a 98 cherokee limited and had a similar problem when I purchased it used. It would lock and unlock, but it wouldn't open. To first open it I had to push the handle down while I pulled the latch up.

Power Door Locks slow to respond and one part broken...


Spray all mechanical parts of door latches with a good solvent...That should get them working if sticky.If that dosent work then solenoids inside doors need to be be sprayed inside small rubber boot on control rod end. L door panel needs to come off to re-connect control rod for rocker switch. (try first just removing lock trim panel and see if you can get to rod from there first.)

1998 Jeep Cherokee Internal locks and power locks Not working.


Open the door panels and lube all of your lock mechanisms. They tend to get stuck and it harms the locking motor. After I lube mine up, they freely move. Just spray some lithium grease and manually lock and unlock the door with the rocker until it moves very easily. You'll probably have to do this once a year like I do.
