What will I need to take the doors off?

Jeep engineers have designed the doors of the 2018 Wrangler to come off as easily as possible while still being functional, as you know, doors. But you will need a No. T50 and No. T40 Torx head driver, not only to loosen the bolts holding on the doors but to reinstall them. An overtightened bolt can break. The owner’s manual for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler says the front-door bolts should only be tightened to 7.5 foot-pounds.

Before you start taking things apart, make sure you roll the glass windows down to protect them from accidental damage. Once you’ve done that, and you’ve collected the tools you need, it’s time to get started.

  1. Located and remove the hinge pin screws from the upper and lower outside hinges. Use the No. T50 Torx head driver.
  2. Unfasten the check screw from the center door check assembly. You’ll need the No. T40 Torx bit.
  3. Slide the plastic panel along the door frame toward the seats to remove the plastic wiring harness until the tabs are released.
  4. Unlock the wiring harness by pulling up on the red locking tab.
  5. Find the black security tab beneath the wiring harness and lift it into the open position.
  6. Disconnect the wiring connector by pulling downward with the wiring harness open. Stow it in the door’s pocket so it doesn’t go missing.
  7. Lift the door clear of the hinge pins and remove the door.

When it’s time to button your 2018 Jeep Wrangler back up, simply follow the steps in reverse.
