  • driver door won't key unlock

    got 93 yj, driver side full door will not unlock with key, just had door panel off, all is fresh in mind. key is "working", so tumbler is working, just will not travel far enough without wiggling key hard to engage handle. bent mechanism, seemed to help a little. ready to break out file, grinder or bigger hammer. any ideas would be helpful.

    All you need to do to get it to engage is to pull the rod for the key lock out of its housing and move it either up or down depending on its present location and and snap it back into the housing. You will know if you moved it the wrong way because it will not engage at all. After a few minutes of trial and error, you will find out where it needs to sit right.

    Found this out when i had to install a new door handle for my 94' yj and put the rod too far down and couldnt get my door open
