Many thanks to GJ7GoldenEagle for the idea about the 3" screw to remove that broken piece of plastic on the door lever arm. It worked! Saved a lot of time. Now, the new part is on the way and it should be a quick repair. I live in northern Michigan, and defrost is a necessity! Thanks again. I am new to jeep ownership, and the advice on this forum has been really helpful to me and my '97 TJ. Thanks again.
