'87 YJ Hardtop Latch Removal
I am trying to take apart the rear glass latch section and cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the latch assembly apart? Here is a picture:

Need to try and get this apart as one of the screws is rusted and broke off. I can not find any set screw or other means to separate the "T" handle (outside) from the backing plate on the inside??? :confused:

Thanks for any help.

I believe you need to drill out the 2 screws on the outside and the T handle will pull out and expose interior mounting plate.

I had to drill the two studs out and then soak the mechanism in pb and beat it with a hammer to get the square shaft out

The time now is 12:14 AM.
