hey guys, i have a 95 and the problem is with the drivers side door....it will open likes it brand new using either interior or exterior handle.....but then an hour later nothing!! i pull either handle and the door doesnt engage....i push the locking mechanism in and out, yank on the door a little and finally it works but in the last few days it has been getting worse. harder to correct the problem! is it something sticking that needs lube or is it something that only catches when it wants to? thanks

I haven't had that problem but I did swap out my locks and it's pretty easy to remove the interior panels so you can clean things up and lube all the moving parts.

Mine does that, its the lock. when its in the unlock position, from the side press the lock down hard further into the unlock position and while doing that pull the handle. it will work. Mine been this way for a couple months now. Ive just honestly been to lazy to take the door apart to fix it correctly.

mine got stuck closed, took several days to get back open. latch assembly was all gunked up. took it out, cleaned it up and sprayed down with white lithium grease. no problems since.

My door use to do the same on my YJ. I pulled the trim on the door and found the linkage bar was bent. With a little straightening while it was still in the door allowed the latch to now work properly.
