#20058 of 23397 Jeep Wranger Read End Noise
Oct 25, 2005 (7:58 am)
I own a 1995 Jeep Wrangler (Sahara) with 30,000 miles. It recently acquired a noise in the rear. When one turns rather sharply, either left or right, a rubbing noise seems to come from one side or the other. Seems to be more obvious turning left but once in a while it will make a noist when turning right. I figured it was the suspension system but I lubricated (WD40) rather liberally and that did not help. I can't find any other moving parts in the rear that would cause such a noise. Any advice would be appreciated. Dan

I guess that would require a camera? So now you will be rattleless. You may miss it. I am curious per how much they charged to rid you of the torment of noise. You must have tired of having the sound system working overtime so you could not hear the rattle. A snake perhaps? Top still soft and down at every chance. All I need is a day with no rain and its down. Go Easy, KB2
#20060 of 23397 95 Wrangler Door problem
Oct 25, 2005 (5:00 pm)
I have a 95 wrangler with a hard top and full doors. I can no longer open my driver side door. It seems that a rod on the handle has fallen off the handle. I am unable to get the outside handle to open the door now (I was rolling down the window and opening the door using the outside latch). How can I get the door open so that I can get into the door?

Use a coathanger, or something similar, to reach between the glass and the outer door skin and hook onto the lock mechanism. Shouldn't take more than five minutes of fiddling.

Tires, rims, brake drums, wheel bearings, and propshaft are all moving items in the rear that can cause a rubbing noise under the right conditions.

I believe you can go to www.stu-offroad.com (http://www.stu-offroad.com/body/doorpanel/doorpanel-1.htm specifically) and see how to remove panels from a TJ door. I don't think a YJ would be much different, but maybe a little.
#20064 of 23397 Rubicon axle question
Oct 26, 2005 (5:21 am)
Hey, Mac, question for you.
Can the Rubicon axles be upgraded to 4.88 and still retain use of the factory lockers?
What would be involved to do that swap from 4.11 to 4.88?

Rattle was covered under warranty. But now I have a different problem. The window handle thing is now sitting at just the right position to hit my knee while I'm driving.
Does anyone know how to remove this handle and adjust it? It looks like it's held on there with a clip, but I don't want to screw anything up...

If you bend a hanger into a little hook, you can usually just pull on that c-clip holding the handle on. Then just adjust the window crank handle to where you want it to be, then reattach the clip using needlenoses (could possibly use the needlenoses for the removal too).
If you wanna see how it attaches, just check out a replacement crank at a local auto shop like Autozone...

Thanks, Paul. I thought it would just pop off...
