CJ Door Lock Assembly

Does anyone know where to buy the lock assembly inside the door. I am not talking about the lock cylinder I am talking about the metal thing with springs that all the rods connect to and move to actuate the door locking and opening?

Uh, those have nothing to do with opneing/closing/locking the door. It says right in the title that they are window regulators.

I have been looking for the same thing for months, and FINALLY found them on ebay last week.

No one makes them aftermarket (4wd.com, Quadratec, etc). I've checked with Collins Bros and another Jeep scrapyard with no luck. Keep searching ebay and the For Sale section here for guys that are parting out their junk.

Or, like craig said, see if you can find a YJ that has the same post-type striker on the tub.

Good luck!

I found a passenger side while searching the garage. Is this what you're looking for?

Hope you have better luck than I did.
I locked the passenger side door and now I can't get it unlocked with the key or the inside rocker.
Guess I will have to take the door off at the hinges unless somebody has an idea I am to dull to think of.

Tom,
Assuming you have the paddle handles You will have to in from the inside of the jeep, remove the interior panel and trip the latch from inside the door. Trying to remove it from the hinges will not help. Lever styles are probably different.
I have the same problem with one of my doors. I have to constantly remind my wife to NOT LOCK THE DOOR when she rides with me.

Lots of tow truck drivers have slim jims that can usually pop the lock open from the outside.

What about a GM van or pickup? The latch looks the same I think and AMC (all makers covered) liked to use GM stuff like the wiring and steering to name a couple.

Isn't what PavementPounder posted (latch assembly) what you are looking for?

I never heard from Joemac about the latch I posted. Still have it, but only have the passenger side and not a pair.


Old, rusty doors are fine as a source. You just need to pull the latch assembly, clean it, and grease it thoroughly before swapping it in. Lack of lubrication is what leads to things bending.
