Oh please help me! My YJ's doors wont come off. I have removed the nut, cleaned the area with wd-40, let dry. I then sprayed a liquid wrench type of lubricant, (not wd-40), and swung the door back and forth for a while...

Lifted straight up and the whole jeep rocked, but alas the door is still on...

Any Suggestions?:banghead:

Rubber mallet!!!

and maybe some PB blaster. also, while you're lifting up, rock the door in and out--it helps....

lemme know if you still cant get them out..

if a full door, open the window push up with your arms or back and lift wtih your legs. some hinges have a nylon spacer in them. if yours do, do not lose them.

Think back to physics class. Put a 2x4, shovel handle, crowbar under the door and over the door sill with the door open about a foot and lift (lever and fulcrum, remember?) and the door should pop right up. Just put the lever as close to the hinge side of the door as possible.

The rubber mallet should only be used on the feder if you drop the door on your foot.
