Hmmm usually change the entire door. From junk yard and rekey it or change cylinder. To remove the handle maybe remove from inside the door.

YJ wrangler door wont close


Start out by checking the latch mechanism on the door. Use a screwdriver to "trip" the latch with the door open, then pull on the screwdriver against the latch gate. If it doesn't hold then you may have a bad latch (the springs in the latch can go bad over time). You can also try spraying penetrating oil (PB Blaster) into the latch and again using a screwdriver to trip the latch, then open with the handle, and repeat several times to work the oil into the mechanism and free it up (this trick also sometimes works with the springs on wiper arms that have lost tension). If the penetrating oil trick works, think about spraying dry lube or white lithium grease into the latch to help prevent it from happening again. If the door is misaligned, consider new hinge bushings, a misaligned door can cause damage to the door, and put tension on the door latch in a direction that puts pressure on the latch that it wasn't designed for.

My door will not open with the outer latch. Its a 2002 jeep wrangler X with full doors.


I've seen this way too many times...the rod connecting the handle and the actuator has come off. You can take the door panel off and reconnect it - just take a good look, it's very obvious how where it fits in to. If the rod will not stay in the slot on the handle or the actuator the clip is broken - the handle's clip will come with a new lock rod, but the clip on the actuator is integral and you'd have to replace the entire actuator - also very easy.

Check around your door handle for damage - this happens a lot during breakins.

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.

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.

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.
