I usually stand on my head with a flashlight in hand.....

You can always just break the plastic snappy part so it will just slide in and out.

After a few times of fighting with it upside down on my seat holding a flashlight in my mouth and mumbling curses ... I just got to a point were I can just reach up and unplug by feel... I fight more with the rear doors just due to less room since i try not to move the front seats...

I got this one free lol.

Seriously though, if it worked I'd buy one. Those little plugs are frustrating as shit, especially the driver's side one that is blocked by the computer terminal thingy.

I was trying to muscle them off and they were impossible. I then tried the gentle approach. Slide the red over gently press down the tab in the middle and pull down. Now mine come off easy.

I broke the red tab on the driver side long ago.
And last year I teared the Jeep side of the plug so now it's dangling and hitting the body at every bump...
But yeah, after a few times you can just feel it and unplug/plug in 2 seconds...

The plugs really aren't that difficult, I'll continue using my thumb. Just amke sure the red sliding lock is disengaged and you shouldn't have any problem.

Yeah, what everyone else is saying. One thing I did do, was after getting them off I sprayed them with a little Macs 8300 spray silicone from NAPA. Seems to make them slide a bit easier.

The drivers side is a pain in the ass at times.

The rest, eh, not bad.

Come on Kev... after 3 - 4 years your still having trouble with the disconnects? Mine broke off their mounting place long ago (all 4) but I reach under one handed and undo it. I usually dont slide the red clip back in place. if it doesnt disconnect easily, I check the red clip by feel.

x2. The driver's door is the worst, but far from bad enough to buy a tool.

I have to admit, it did take me like 20 minute to figure it out. The Jeep was new and I didn't want to break anything the first week I owned it. Now that that's over and after breaking one of them, I do what Goody does and don't move'em (red tab) back.

Yup, I don't ever click the red locks back. I really don't think you need 2 levels of precautionary measures for your dome light...

I cut the red tabs off so all I have to deal with is the thumb tab.

I've had the doors off a bunch of times but that plug is getting harder. I am starting to suspect that one of you fucktards superglued them in!

I can get them, was just hoping that the tool thing worked.
