Question about Ford Cars & Trucks
One of the side doors will open but the one closer to the back is stuck at the bottom. How do I get it unlatched so I can see the problem? Thank you
You must remove the door panel to access the latch and replace or repair it, That is a daunting task but can be done.

SOURCE: Door won't unlatch or come open
Ford had a problem with the door handles not working properly. They are cheap plastic. If the exterior door handle is broken, you will need to drill out the rivets that hold it in, and then get the door open and the panel off. You have to disconnect the rod going to it. Then, remove the handle. If you don't want to drill again, I suggest replacing the rivets with a bolt and nut easily obtainable at your hardware store. I've found that a M7 bolt works very well. If you are having a problem with the interior door handle, it's the same problem. Remember to check your door latch because if your exterior handle is broken, then your latch isn't working properly. I got one at Ford for about 40 bucks.

stupid question but did you try inside latch?If so you should be able to remove seat from other side and remove door panel and replace parts (probley clip) as needed or at least open door if latch is defective

the best way is to call Ford with your vin# and have them fax it to you or go in they can pull it up the in their computer by vin so there are no mistakes/ Please rate my response thank you very much

Van has dutch doors in rear; the lift gate electronic mechanism seems fine as it unlatches on the right side, but will not unlatch on left side
