Awesome 5 minute mod!

Don't know about you guys but the door lock knob is very annoying on the WK. I can't rest my elbow on the door without it digging into my arm. It's very frustrating.

Not sure if this is a common mod or not, but I decided to do something about it.

Before – doors are locked, door lock knob sticking up ready to dig into arm:


After – awesome comfort and looks great:


This takes about 5-10 minutes. You don't even need to take the door cards out. Simply unscrew the knob, dremel about 5/8" off the bottom of the knob, screw it back on, repeat on passenger side and enjoy!

Re: Awesome 5 minute mod!

This is a very common mod with the wk. It was one of the first things I did to mine after I bought it. Instead of unscrewing the knob completely and cutting it down. You can simply unlock the doors, grab a hand towel or microfiber cloth and wrap it around the knob. Take a pair of pliers and simply twist the knob to the right tightening it down on the rod. Check it by locking the doors until u get it down to the height u want. Easy peasy! No cutting or trimming required

Re: Awesome 5 minute mod!

I always catch my short shirt sleeve on it at ATMs & drive throughs when I'm reaching out. Looks like it will keep dogs from chewing in them too!
