OEM 1/2 Door Assembly

Just picked up my OEM 2010 half doors from the paint shop and they are now ready to be assembled. I have looked through all the boxes but no assembly instructions. Anybody know where I can find some or don't they exist?

Thanks
Dennis

I can't imagine assembly would be anything but very straight forward- can you post a pic of what all you need to assemble? Mark W.

Dennis!

Try this link:

Chrysler EASy – Accessories - 82212124

Click on the "INSTALLATION GUIDE" PDF on the right, and it'll at least give you an idea what goes where. It includes a Parts List Inventory, so you can make sure you've got everything before you start.

I had mine assembled by the folks that I bought it from, JeepsAreUs. They left off the Door Weatherstrip and the Locks, so I could paint them first.

Here are a few hints for you, that I picked up when I added the Weatherstripping, Door Locks, and Door Panels:

1. Door Lock -

A. Leave the Inner Door Panel OFF for now. You'll have to remove the Outside Door Handle, to install the Door Lock Assembly. Using a 5/16 Socket, remove the two nuts from the back of the Door Handle. IF you drop them inside of the Door Cavity, make sure you've got a Magnet Rod to retrieve them. Remove the Door Handle and set it with the Nuts aside.

B. If your Door Lock is alread assembled, then you're ready for Install. If it's not assembled, you'll need to have a Locksmith Key it for you first. From the Outside of the Door, place the Lock Assembly in the Key Hole provided. It has different sized Slots on the body of the Lock, that match the Key Hole Cutouts in the Door. Once you've got it flush against the Door, hold it, and try to Lock/Unlock your Door manually with the Key, to make sure you've got it on correctly. If it works fine, hold the Lock Assembly in place with one hand, take the Lock Clip ("U" shaped Clip...) in the other hand, place it carefully through the Large Hole of the Door Handle from the outside. You should be able to slide the Clip under the Lock Assembly, and lock it in place. Make sure it's snug!!!

C. Re-Install Door Handle Assembly, but don't tighten the nuts too tight.

2. Weatherstrip -

A. Figure out which end of the Weatherstrip goes where. Once you have that figured out, start with the Front of the Weatherstrip, and snap the Plastic Button into the front part of the Door.

B. VERY LOOSELY..... pop in the Weatherstrip into the Door Channels to Install the Weatherstrip. By the time you get to the end, the back side of the Door, the Weatherstrip should fit into the back part of the Door perfectly. If it does, then snap the other Plastic Button into the hole at the rear of the Door. IF... the Weatherstrip is too long, 2"-3"'s, then remove the Weatherstrip from the Door Channels, and make it LOOSER the next time you pop it into the Door Channel. The goal, is to NOT have any slack at all, where the back part of the Weatherstrip perfectly meets the top of the rear Door, where it snaps into.

3. Door Panel -

A. When you're assembling the Inner Door Panel, make sure you do a TEST-FIT FIRST, so you can see what holes the Door Panel Plastic Grommets will fit into.

B. Once you've done this, then assemble the Plastic Snap In Nuts, where they're supposed to go.

C. While you're doing the TEST-FIT, watch where your Wiring Harness is located, while the Panel is against the Door. You may have to Zip-Tie some of it out of the way, to keep it from getting pinched by the Door Panel.

D. Once you're happy with the Door Panel and Wiring Harness positioning, carefully assemble the Door Panel, keeping an eye on the Wiring, as not to damage or pinch it as you go. When you push the Panel in, wait to hear a "CLICK", to make sure the Pins are snapping into the Fastners.

ENJOY YOUR NEW DOORS!!!

Pics Please, when you can!

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

BB
