Talking Adjusting a 1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ Door

Just thought I would share with the Forum how I finally got the torque screws on my Wrangler YJ doors to come loose and how I aligned the door. I ended up taking the inside trim off the door where you can then see the backside of the upper hinge which allows to slide forward or back. I took my mirror off of the door to get to the 3 torque screws on the hinge. I first used a hand-held butane torch and heating the screws from the back side. (One at a time). Then, using a hand-held impact tool with a T-40 bit, I hit the impact tool with a hammer. Then it slowly started moving and after a few hits, I was able to use an impact drill and remove the screws. I repeated this process with the other two torque screws. Once they were all loose, I was able to loosen the hinge and move the door up to where it needed to be while my friend tightened the torque screws back down. Worked great. I think I uploaded the picture of the door with the trim off and the one where you can see the backside of the upper hinge.

But you got off the elevator on the wrong floor. This is four. You want two.
