Interior Door handle

Hey guys well my interior door handle broke. The plastic peice is gone and there used to be 2 wires you could pull. One to unlock the door and one to open the door. I locked the door a few days ago and now the second wire is gone to unlock the door. Is there anyway to unlock the door. The outside lock is messed up and the key won't work. thanx for any info.

I can't remember exactly but....
if it's a full door (like your pics) you should be able to pull the inside cover off and get at the locking mechanism from the inside. Will be fun to pull off the interior of the door with it shut, but can be done. The interior panel can be removed by gingerly pulling along the edge - start at one of the bottom corners and pull out - if it's like mine the top slides into a chrome channel.

Dirty, rusty, banged up YJ.

The problem with that is when you get that panel off there is a metal panel behind it that has to come off. The door has to be open because there are 2 screws on the edge of the door you can't get to them with it closed. The rods should still be in the doors just need to find them and put them back where they belong.

Same thing happend to me.....you can push the lock by the door from the inside...its kinda hard, but you can and the door will swing open. Look at the point where the door hits the side of the jeep and see how it works, you will see what part you can move....

good luck...i am going to try and install my new handle tonight.

Just remove the panel, you don't just pull on it or you could mess up the mounts. Pull it out gently, and put a screwdriver behind it, slide it until you find the clip holding it on then pry out gently on the clip not the door panel.

Once it's out you can acess all the rods and you can unlock it and pop the door open.
