You should be able to pick up a manual on a 97 Ford F150 from any of the major auto stores like Auto Zone, etc


Good luck Loringh

SOURCE: Broken inside door handle-1996 Chevy Silverado Extended Cab

On almost all GM's there will be a screw in the recess that the handle sits in. After removing this screw, gently wiggle this cup out of it's hole and there should be a metal rod attached to the back of it with a small clip. Unclip this and it's out - installation is the reverse. Just don't lose the clip or let the linkage rod fall down inside or you will have to remove the door panel. It shouldn't take five minutes to replace and most parts stores now carry GM door handle assemblies. Good Luck!

SOURCE: F150 third door top lock won't release

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.

SOURCE: Door panel will not pop off

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

it sounds like the cable from the handle to the top latch is broke. you will have to take off the inside door panel to reach the latch itself at the top front corner of the door and pull the leaver part that the cable attaches to. then buy a new door handle, the cable came with the last one i got

Drivers side door wont latch shut on 97' Ford F150,HELP!


Ouch, this has happened to me before. Don't panic!, it's pretty easy to cure...for the moment. It's pretty likely what has happened is the latch has somehow been tripped, causing it to collide with the latch post (looks like a bolt with a round head on the door jam). Look at the latch itself, on the door, and be sure it isn't closed, it should have a bit of a gap to allow the latch to engage the post and trip the mechanism that causes it to lock, holding the door shut. IF the latch has been tripped, then you will need to make certain the door is unlocked, and pull the door release using the inside handle, and using a screwdriver or another practical item other than your finger, carefully try to push the tripped portion of the mechanism toward the car, so that it will release. It shouldn't take a huge amount of effort, if it hasn't been badly damaged. I hope this helps, and if you need video for clarification, I'll be happy to do so, just let me know. Good luck!

3rd door on ford f150 will not open


There was something in the paper, maybe a recall on the latch for the 3rd door. There is a clip inside the door that keeps the lockrod in place. You might want to call the dealer about it. I am not sure you can remove the inside panel without having the door open.
