I"m working with my '93 ZJ and have had the front passenger door panel off for some time. Eventually the power lock seemed to struggle to lock and after a press or two via the key fob, it would eventually lock. Now it would appear that the motor doesn't have enough power to lock the door (hoping I didn't fry it with a thousand attempts each time I locked all the other doors). When manually locking the door it would seem that more force is required to move it than should be required. All the other locks work fine. I have since disconnected it in an attempt to spare the motor if it isn't already dead. From what I've read on the forum it is quite possible that I need to lubricate the lock itself.
Would anyone have some insight as to how the door lock is removed from the door, I'm not entirely clear as to what it is I'd be lubricating once the lock is removed. (if it has to be, was really hoping to avoid that)
Thanks for your time!
