    That fuse you pulled is just for the lights. I guess the door chime also if you have one.

    Perfect. Thanks.

    I'm going to get a can of that PB Blaster stuff to see if it can penetrate the rusty hinges. These things still aren't budging at all

    Just get liquid wrench. It is the best off-the-shelf penetrating oil you can buy. But you have to be patient. Blast it several times a day and then go back and try to get them off tomorrow. Penetrating oil requires time to be truly effective.

    Probably a bent door....Use some penetrant, I found the new WD40 Rust specialist is works well. Let it sit, spray them again, let it sit, do this for a few days and they should lift off easy.

    OH, don't forget to roll the windows up. You don't want to let the rain in where you're storing them.

    Tried the bottle jack and WD-40 with no success. On my way to buy some sort of penetrant. Thanks for the windows up tip but these baby's are being stored indoors!

    Just be extra careful with making sure they don't get locked, Jeff couldn't get his family out of the jeep for days when he locked the doors in his basement and couldn't find the key. Luckily he was able to fit food and water in to them while he found the keys.

    Removing doors

    I've used my hilift with a block of wood on it and found just trying to jack it straight up doesn't do much except lift the entire body. When you see the body start to lift (just the slightest), give the door a wiggle back and forth slightly and I bet you will see it start to move. Once the body settles back down give it another bit of a lift, wiggle, let the body settle, and so on.

    If it is really as bad as you decsribe, I recommend having a second person to help catch the door when it does finally pop off, when it does let go it will likely have some decent pressure under it and there is a good chance it will move further than you expect.

    Thank you for the advice. I have already tried this method earlier with no luck. These doors are really stuck on...

    This is day 2 of spraying with PB Blaster, wiggling and lifting.

    As I see it I have 3 options:

    1. Keep trying what Ive been doing. Spray, lift and wiggle.
    2. Apply some heat and try again.
    3. Take the hinges off along with the door and try and separate them on the ground.

    My 4th and last option would be to forget about it and keep the doors on (I hate admitting defeat! lol)


    Here are a couple of pics of the hinges I am dealing with:

    don't heat them...paint will be toast......

    bend the knees, grab the doors from the bottom lip with belly button to the door latch (arms straight and fingers clasped)....swing door in side to side motion by transferring weight from left to right foot, use your legs to lift up until vein pops in your temple.

    Tried that many times already. Not even a 1/64 of movement upwards.

    Unbolt the hinges every time you want the doors off... And purchase new hinges

    WD40 is not a penetrating oil and is not a substitute for Liquid wrench. It will not do the job. As well, be patient and give the liquid wrench time to work. Your problem is not unique. Many of us have dealt with seized doors. Listen to what some of us are telling you and they will come off.

    Success!

    Soaked them with PB blaster penetrating oil for 2 days. Put the jack and a couple of blocks of wood under the door and wiggled them until I saw movement. From there I just kept applying more pressure slowly and working them out.

    Thanks to everyone for their input/advice and hilarious comments like "I'm assuming the door is open" lol

    Now all I need to do is clean them up
