Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. The drop down

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited. The drop down door for my front overhead console does not drop down any longer. It looks like it is crooked. This is where my sunglasses are kept and I need to access it. Usually it takes the touch of a fingertip to drop it down, but it is now stuck and does look like it is crooked. Do I need to get a new one or have it repaired and if I need a new one is it easy to buy one and repair yourself?

There is a little plastic bracket inside, that also has a metal spring that is of poor design. Try tapping the cover to release in frequent intervals, this should cause the door to fall. Once the door is open, inspect the spring and lubricate the edges and spring contacts with WD 40 that is applied to a clean rag or cotton swab. This should help. I have the same problem with my 2007 Grand Hemi.

    I wish I could get to the metal spring. The door will NOT drop down any longer and it looks like it is crooked. Is it beyond repair and needing to be replaced? Mine is a Hemi also. Love Jeep!

    You can try to pull the door down on the side that is crooked and see if you can force it to open, using some care. As it is now, it won't function so you can't hurt it anyway. Otherwise you have to disassemble it and replace it, and although I have not needed to diassemble mine yet, it looks to be a pain.

1995 Jeep grand cherokee limited, 5.2, all time 4x4. I have discovered two 6 pronged connectors under the steering column coming from the same harness, they will connect to each other and the wire colors...

I have a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee LTD. I removed the dash to replace the blend door in the HVAC assembly. I got the blend door replaced and when I put it back together the overhead console and the center electronic information center does not work. I have two black connectors I could not remember where they hooked up at and believe this is the reason why the overhead console and electronic information console are not working. Attached are the 2 connectors. I need to know where they connect to under, around, or behind the dash board. E-mail all responses to royaj0131@yahoo.com_1814.jpg_1815.jpg
