How to Fix a 2005 Jeep Wrangler Stuck Zipper on the Rear Window


A stuck zipper on your Jeep Wrangler's soft top will make your Jeep drafty and allow water and debris to enter the interior of the vehicle. The soft top on your 2005 Wrangler must be maintained to work properly. Jeep soft tops are equipped with thick, sturdy plastic zippers. The zippers occasionally become stuck in place, and are difficult to open or close.

Things You'll Need

  • Zipper lubricant
  • Tweezers
  • Inspect the stuck zipper, and identify the cause of the sticking. Look for loose threads or strings that may have frayed on the soft top. These are often stuck in the zipper. Use tweezers to extract any stuck objects.

  • Rinse the zipper with water to dislodge any dirt or debris. Dirt often causes a soft-top zipper to stick.

  • Apply zipper lubricant as directed by product instructions. Lubricant products specifically designed for use on Jeep tops are available. Move the zipper after the lubricant has been properly and thoroughly applied.

  • Take soft top to a seamstress or fabric repair business that can properly repair a Jeep soft top. Have the zipper repaired or replaced professionally.

Tips & Warnings

  • Failing to properly care for your Jeep's soft top, including its zippers, will cause continuing problems and damage. To avoid issues like a stuck zipper, maintain and lubricate your soft top properly as according to your Jeep or after market soft top's owners manual or care guide.
