there are 2 bolts that hold it onto the hinge.

then you need to roll down the window.

then disconnect the strap/wiring harness at the hinge down below by the brake pedal and lift the door up and away.

Sorry, I neglected to mention the first driver's side came off fine & No Windows only half doors, so no worry there. & cable is disconnected. I can't get it to budge or lift up at all. I even sprayed WD-40 & PB BLASTER in there earlier & still nothing!!!

Be sure your door is all the way open(90 degrees) swing back and forth just a little as you try lifting. If all else fails you can try a piece of 2x4 and a floor or tire jack.(2x4 between the jack and bottom of the door) Using the floor jack to apply a little upward pressure on the door and using a rubber mallet, tap upward on the bottom of the door. Hope this helps

careful that you don't bend the hinge, lift straight up and down.

You can reef on it as you mive the door open and shut. Sometimes when its been ages, or never, doors can be a pain to remove. They will come off without damage, just eat your wheaties and go to it.

On an opened door, lift straight up from underneath the hinge. 2x4 or floorjack. Once off, put some antiseize on the pins and hinge, install door and work it open and closed. Wipe off excesss (it'll never come off clothes, so use latex gloves and a rag). Door should lift off with ease.

Put some white lithium grease on each hinge before you put em back on and you'll be good to go come next summer. Only takes a little dab.

Most all parts stores carry litium greese. Spray or tin.

i had the same problems with my doors when i first bought my 08 jeep. There is a cloth/metal flake lining in the hinge its self on the jeep. and you can just push it out with a screwdriver and it makes it a lot easier to take them on and off so its only a one man job you dont need a floor jack or anything. Just be careful not to chip the paint on the hinge. I do it all the time because I do a lot of highway driving plus the weather is always changing in the upper midwest.

The uppers fell out this spring and i pushed out the deteriorated bottoms. I never bothered to find out what they were for.

Maybe I should look at finding replacements

Should be replaced periodically when needed. Cheap
