Door latch broken


Recommended Posts

The latch on my 1998 Xj's driver door broke. if anyone needs pics ill see if i can get some. basically the door itself cracked around the bolts holding the latch in there. just wondering if there's anyway i could take the door apart and just weld it back together, or should i call it a loss and get a new door?

I'm sure you could take all the latch parts out and weld up the door, but I think it would be a lot easier to get a replacement door from a junkyard. A door from any 4-door Cherokee up to 1996 should fit.

 

You might want to look at WHY to door cracked, though. I have never heard of that happening, and the only reason I can think of is that the hinges must be sagging so the latch is supporting the weight of the door as well as holding it closed.

Finding a 97+ door could be easyer but id definently throw a picture up 1st and see If theres any other options.

Yeah the door has been sagging for a while. I usually just pick it up and close it, but after having a week where everything went wrong...I kinda took my frustration out on my door
