Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
1997 Ford F150 third door, top lock won't release. Can see the rod to bottom mechanish through speaker hole, but top won't release. Can see the top latch under the gasket but can't get it to release to open the door. Is their a trick?
There's a cable that runs from the door mech up to the top latch, need to pull down on this cable to release the top latch. Only way I could pull down enough to release was through the hole just left of the opening for the mech...cable is attached to the door frame with plastic tie wrap...pop this out so the cable is free in there and then just pry down with a screwdriver...make sure your pulling the handle at the same time. Once the door is open, it's easy to see what happening, most likely the cable is stretched out too much. I just ordered the part from Ford, the cable and top latch come as one part...about $60.
