CAR OPENING TECHNIQUES: 2007-09 Jeep Patriot

This month we will offer recommended car-opening techniques for the 2007-09 Jeep Patriot. This vehicle uses vertical locking buttons on all doors. This vehicle uses horizontal linkage that connects to the vertical buttons.

This vehicle is equipped with multi-layer weather stripping. Care must be taken when inserting, manipulating and removing car opening tools. Improper procedures can result in damage or breakage to the window glass.

The following opening methods can be used to unlock the 2007-09 Jeep Patriot.

Use the High Tech Tools Tool #105, strip saver and a wedge to unlock the front passenger door locking mechanism. Insert the wedge between the weather stripping and the glass. Insert the strip saver in line with the inside vertical locking button. Insert the #105 tool through the strip saver into the door cavity with the tip pointing forward just in front of the rear edge of the door. Lower the tool into the door until the tip is beneath the bottom of the latch mechanism. Turn the tool handle away from the vehicle. Raise the tool until the tip contacts the access lock linkage. Continue to raise the tool to unlock the door locking mechanism.

Use the HPC CO-76 opening tool, a wedge and an inspection light to unlock the front passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting the wedge just forward of the vertical locking button. Insert the inspection light and identify the location of the vertical locking rod. The CO-76 is factory bent at a curved 90-degree angle. Do not change the angle. Insert the CO-76 into the door cavity. Push the two handles together to extend the hook end. Manipulate the car tool until the hooked end of the tool has captured the vertical locking rod. The locking button should move when the vertical rod is contacted. With the vertical rod in the hooked end of the tool, pull the handles apart in order to bind the rod. Keeping the vertical linkage rod bound, carefully raise it to unlock the door locking mechanism.
