Inside door handles/strap help

Alright this might be an idiot question but i bought a set of full doors and truthfully they've been more trouble then the entire jeep.

My main concerns i need help with is the inside grab handles fell off and they wont stay in with the bolts, and the strap to keep the door from flying onto your front fender stripped and one of the bolts is broke off into the door.




Any help would be great, i need to repaint the panels to and whenever i rolldown the window it squeeks an insane amount.

Remove the interior door panels and replace the two clip style nuts that the grab handle fasteners screw into. Total cost to replace should be about $5 for both doors.

Yes. You should find what you need at Pepboys or Autozone or what ever autoparts store you have near you. It would probably be a good idea to pull the door panel and grab one off the door for an example to help find the right size.

As for the Screeching while rolling down the windows, mine does that too. I wax the inside and outside of the windows regularly and havent had the problem since. And for the door straps I had to put some monster sized bolts into mine. they were so stripped out...

What do you wax it with, and you wax the glass itself or the rubber things at the base??

My bolt snapped in half in the door for one of the straps is there any way to fix that??

Sorry for the questions just these doors are devil doors...

For the bolt, Get a set of bolt extractors or left handed drill bits (my favorite).

Just any old car wax. I wax the both sides of the windows themselves and not the rubber pieces.

It just occurred to me that right handed drill bits are stupid... left-handed chuck, left handed bits, you lose absolutely nothing and gain big time...

on the side windows yes it does but dont put it on the outside of the windshield cause when you go to use your wipers they will... stutter, chatter, skip... I guess thats the best way to explain it. You can wax the inside of the windshield if you like, it doesnt help keep fog off of it but it wont leave spots when you wipe it down.
