If you find out the part numbers, let me know.

Door locking Mechanisms, door innards.

Both my door locking mechanisms in the doors (full steal doors) are slowly deteriorating. If I lock the doors, its a 50/50 shot that they will unlock whether inside, or with the key outside.

I have taken apart the door/panels etc and played around with them. Everything looks okay, but I can tell this was a problem with the previous owner as there is a zip tie around one of the pieces, as well as paint chipping on the jaw/claws where it locks on the jeep frame. I w-d40 everything and cleaned it all up, but...

So, I figured, I'd rather just get some piece of mind and buy new innards and replace the entire mechanism. However, I cannot find a place that sells all the parts.

Any suggestions? Or are the cheap from the dealership?

Thanks,
