How To Remove Door Panels On A 2004 Jeep Wrangler
02-02-2010 06:16 PM
mudslinger150 Thanks guys, I went and tackled the door. I found the clip and popped it off with a screwdriver. Removed the panel, found out the issue and put it all back together. Good thing i got some info about the window crank handle, i would have been fighting with that thing for awhile.

Idk if any of you have had this issue before but it seems that the armature that is attached to the exterior handle bypassed the interior armature attached to the linkage... I pushed them passed eachother and tweaked it a little so they wouldn't cross again. Anyone ever seen this?

rday78 a little trick... when you put the handle back on. Put the clip on the handle first then slide it on the splines. It will click right in.

s3nt3nc3d They make a nifty lil tool to remove the "jesus clip" as DKarge calls it...less than $5 at most auto parts stores. It helps control where the clip flies when you pop it off and helps press it back on evenly so it doesn't fly off when you're trying to snap it back on.

DKarge87 You do not have to take off the interior handle and lock assembly but the window crank you will see the handle and then like a washer against the door panel just seperate them with like a screw driver and then you will see the clip just be careful not to loose the "jesus clip" and then the panel should come out with the removal of the exposed screws. Good luck.

wrangler door panel: how do i get this thing off?

How do i pop off the hand crank for the window and how do i get the interior door lever and lock off. I need to take this panel off because something let loose on the inside of the door, my exterior door handle no longer works.
