Question about 1993 Jeep Wrangler

2 Answers

My 1993 Jeep Wrangler drivers side door will not open from the outside. Do I need a new door handle? The lever moves but it doesn't open the door. I had a 'so-called' mechanic take the door apart to fix it and he couldn't fix it. He says I need a new door. I don't believe this. Please help me proveb him wrong.

The door lever is attached to the lock by a piece of wire with clips,it is a ***** to get to but once the inner door panel is off, with the window up,you should be able to see the fault,(if its the lock itself,that can be replacd on its own,you DO NOT NEED TO REPLACE THE WHOLE DOOR (nice try,to make a few bucks though)more importantly, pass the word around about this "artist".
a dealer will take about an hour to sort out this problem....

Testimonial: "Is there a part name for the wire and clips that I need to tell parts dept. and how do I get the door panel off please?"

    door panel is held on with clips,use a wide flat screwdriver to prise apart,handles have screws,push chrome trim forwards to remove surround from opening lever.(you will brake some clips)

    as far as parts are required the picture on screen will give the parts depts/you the full picture.(used to be microfisch)

I have a jeep wrangler 1998 model and i can open from the outside but i cant from the inside


Most likely the rod that connects from the inside lever to the latch has come disconnected. There are small plastic clips that hold the rod to the latch, that may have broke. Would require removing the door panel.

94 chevy lumina apv door will not open most of the time


since it is the drivers front door it could be the outside door handle , the rod that goes from the handle to the lock asbly or the lock asbly its self take the door trim panel off and then loos inside the door and latch the door with the door open. open the door with the outside door handle and watch the rod and the lever that the rod is pushing down the lever might not be pushing the lever down far enough to release the lock. If the lock does not open try pushing down on the lever and see if the lock releases if it does ck the outside door handle for cracks along the hinges of the handle I have found that most of the time that it is the outside door handle cracked and the rod is not moving the lever far enough to release the lock.

I have a '93 Buick Regal Custom. Last year I was unable to open the passengers door from the outside, I can open from the inside but not outside. I lived with it until now. The drivers door is doing the...


I have this problem every year with my car, 1993 buick regal custom, 3.8. What happens is it gets cold, warms up a bit, and ice or snow melts and gets in the door, then it gets cold again and it freezes. I go to unlock and open the door from the outside and this problem arises.

There is a vertical rod on the left side of the drivers side, right side of the passenger side, that gets bent, from trying to open the door when that mechanism is frozen up. Just bend it back, a TINY bit and it will start working.

I got tired of taking my door apart every time it happened so i cut a little "door" in the cover thing, so i can get at that bar.

I also tried coating it in grease and that seems to lessen the frequency.

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.

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
