I Cannot get the passenger side door off No Matter what I try to do. It'a a 2007 Jeep Wrangler 2Dr Soft Too. I'm limited on tools currently, All of My tools are 5hrs away. I'm so tired of struggling with this.....I just relocated My mirrors too. I really want this stupid thing off! Any help would be so greatly appreciated! Thanx! In Advance!!!
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
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.

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.
