Hi, I'm Don from 1A Auto. I hope this how-to video helps you out, and next time you need parts for your vehicle, think of 1AAuto.com. Thanks.

In this video, we're going to show you how to replace a door check on this 2006 Jeep Liberty and we show you on the driver's side but the passenger's side is the same procedure. The only tools that you'll need for this are a Philip's screwdriver, a flat blade screwdriver and a 10mm socket and ratchet.

Start off by prying out this little panel behind your door handle. Now remove this Philip's screw and this one down in your pull cup. Now we'll just fast forward as Don does this. Now pull out around the door panel to release the clips. When you get to the top, pry the door panel out. Once the clip pops free, pull the door panel up and off. On the back of your door panel, you want to release the clip on your door handle rod and pull the door handle rod down and out. Then you want to push the tabs on both harnesses and release them. Now you want to remove the speaker, it's held in by these three Philip's screws. We'll just fast forward as Don removes those. Once you remove all three bolts, pull the speaker forward, push on the tab on the harness and disconnect it. Then just remove your water shield and you just want to carefully peel that off the door and pull the harnesses and your door handle rod through it. Ours was a little bit easier because it had been removed before. Take your time not to damage it.

Next, you need to remove these two 10mm nuts here and the two 10mm bolts right here. We're just going to fast forward as Don does this. Straighten out the door check and push it through the door. Then, reach up inside and pull the door check down around the harnesses and out.

Take your new door check and feed it back into the door and again maneuver it around those harnesses and then through the other side, reach in with your hand, pull out that end of the regulator and pull the door check back through the door with studs lining up through the holes. We'll fast forward as Don replaces those two 10mm nuts and the two 10mm bolts and tightens them up.

We'll fast forward here as he puts the door handle rod, the lock and the harnesses back through the water shield and then pushes the water shield back into place. Reconnect your speaker and line it back up and replace those three bolts. We'll fast forward as Don does this and tightens them up. Now to replace your door panel, push the harnesses back into place. Push the door handle rod back into place and reclip it. Then line your door panel up and push it down onto the window sill and over that lock. Now make sure your clips are lined up and hit them in around the door panel. We'll just fast forward here as Don replaces those two Philip screws and replaces that little panel behind the door handle.
