Question about Ford F-150

2 Answers

The rear door on the passenger side of my 99 f150 triton v8 extended cab stopped opening all of a sudden. There have been no collisions with that side that I know of - there are no marks on that side. When I try to open it from inside or outside it won't budge; when I push on it as if I was closing it after trying to open it, I can hear a 'click' as if it opened part of the way.

    The third door suddenly stopped opening. When I pull the handle and then pull on the door, I can feel and see the bottom latch give. When I then push the door, I can hear it click at the bottom. The bottom latch is releasing, but the top does not. I can't see any rod or cable running from the handle/rod setup the top latch. I can see the rod going to the bottom latch move when I pull the handle.

    What releases the top latch and how can I get to it? There are only three oblong holes on the post near the top of the door.

Sounds like the actuator rods have popped loose from the handle or the latch mechanism. (Probably the handle).
If you can get the door panel loose (and pulled away from the door) you should be able to reach in and release the latches so you can open it, to work on it.
Door panels are normally held on with little plastic "christmas trees". They do make a tool for taking panels off, but you can do it with a stiff putty knife.

2001 F150 Extended Cab - The driver side rear door does not open

You will have to open it from the inside-Yes, I have done it and it takes about 15 min. or so.-I have also posted about 40 images, after I opened the door-In an effort to contribute a little to all the lost souls with the Curse of the F150 3rd Door issue. Hope this helps-BTW I just did this on 12/04/2011-found my particular issue-I will need a new cable, so I'll have to go to the dealer tomorrow and buy one. Also included images of the tools needed-Good Luck!
Link to the images are here>>>
