Question about 1998 Jeep Cherokee
I am replacing the front passenger side door latch on a 98 cherokee sport and am having some problems. the latch is mostly installed, the outside lock and handle rods are attached and the latch itself is mounted correctly but i am having trouble getting the right angle to reconnect the inside lock and handle rods. am i supposed to attach them to the door panel and then feed them through to connect them to the latch, or do I start with the latch and connect them to the door panel. I'm not sure of the order. Also, either way I try it, I cant seem to get the right angles anyway. Am I doing something wrong? It seems like it would be smarter the have the inside handle be independent from the rest of the door panel. It would be much less difficult to re-attach. It seems to be a standard in any other car Ive ever worked on. Has anyone else ever had this problem or am I an idiot and just doing something wrong?
Hook them to the latch first but make sure they are routed right. what ever you do dont bend the rods it will never open right if you do.
