Step 1: Open & Examine the Doors

Open Jeep WranglerBefore you can begin the actual removal process, it’s important to open up the doors you wish to remove and give them a thorough examination.

Determine if there are any electronic connections for windows or door locks. Then, if any of these connections are present, roll down the windows before you begin removing them. This helps prevent the windows from breaking when taking them off.

Step 2: Disconnect the Power Cables & Loosen the Lock Nuts

One the doors have been examined, it’s time to disconnect the power. To do this, you’ll need to move the tab across the wiring harness to disengage it. Then, using light pressure, press onto this tab to disconnect the wiring.

Keep in mind that the location of the wiring depends on your specific Wrangler model. Those who have four-door vehicles can find the electronic wiring in the B-pillar of the door frame.

After the wiring is disconnected, loosen the lock nuts positioned at the bottom of each door hinge. Using specialized tools, loosen each bolt bit by bit, switching among them until they become loose enough to be easily removed.

Step 3: Remove the Door Straps & Bolts

Afterwards, you can start removing each of the door’s bolts, starting from the bottom and working your way up to the top. Once that top bolt is loosened and removed, the door will be ready to come off the frame.

Step 4: Remove the Door & Replace the Head Bolts

You’re almost done! Now, all that’s left to do is detach the door from the connecting hinge. Carefully move the door in and out using upward force until it comes free. Once the doors are completely removed, store them in a safe place and position to prevent damage.

One last step before you’re complete: Replacing the head bolts back onto the doors. While this isn’t necessary, it makes it harder to lose them! Then, when you’re ready to put the doors back onto your Wrangler, they’ll be good to go.
