Installing Door Panels on a 97-01 Cherokee XJ


I had a very difficult time finding a used front passenger side door panel with a manual door setup on eBay.  Very few vehicles have manual windows and door locks which made it difficult.  I finally found a replacement from a tan interior 97-01 Cherokee XJ below:

My interior on my XJ is black, so I had to paint the door panel to match.  To do this I cleaned it thoroughly before painting with Simple Green.  I then painted it with interior vinyl paint.  I used Flat Black Dupli-Color Spray Paint for vinyl surfaces.

I was driving around for the longest time without a door panel, below:

Finally after all the painting and installing, I ended up with a nice like-new door panel, below:
