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: The rear latch/handle on our

Here's how I repaired mine. Go inside and remove the plastic 2" square plastic cover. By pushing on the lever inside this area, the latch will release. Push on the door at the same time, when the latch is pushed. With the door open, remove all four screws from the plastic panel. Now pry carefully the big plastic panel off the door. There are plastic snaps holding this on, all around the edges. Now there is another metal cover over the latch mechanism under this panel. Remove this. You now can see into the latch area and put the handle back into the slot where it came out of. You'll see that the ends of the handle can be put back on the round bar, but to hold them in place, I attached 2 nylon ties on one end. You can also purchase a metal push on retainer from the local hardware store. Mine has been repaired for 8 months and had no trouble. Ford used no retainer on these handles and after prolonged use, they bend and the handle can be pulled off. A twenty minute job. Your wife can even do it.

The Rear hatch door handle does not unlock


had this problem myself.... you gotta go in through the back and take the plastic/vinal cover off the rear door and look for the lock from the inside..... unlock it .... open the door and then you can repair and lube the mechanism while standing outside like a human being. its not very hard to do.. just take your time and don't force anything.

They are stuck and need to be lubed. Use WD 40 and spray the latch on the door. Then close the door and open it a few times to work the spray in. Then spray it again it should work just fine.

What is he best way to fix the latch/handle on the rear hatch door? The handle operates (moves), but the latch does not release.


The screws securing the latch mechanism may have come loose. I had this problem. I had to remove all the screws from the rear hatch panel, within the luggage compartment. I pulled the panel away from the bottom of the window, bent it slightly, enough to get my arm in there to reach down to pull on the lever that releases the latch. grab a flashlight and a partner. have your partner turn the key to "open" and pull on the rear door handle. with the flashlight you will be able to see or feel the rod moving. pull up on this rod. After you get the door open spray some lube on the lock mechanism and adjust as needed. The rod that you pulled on can be adjusted

How to open a rear hatch if the latch handle stays open and doesn't release the door latch?


Quickest way to get in there is to cut a hole in the inner panel and pull the rod that goes between the latch and handle and the latch itself. That rod often falls off or slides in the clip. Once you get it open lube everything well and put the rod back into the clip and secure it with a zip-tie. Inner panels are readily available at most scrapyards and aren't too expensive.

Rear door lock is stuck, cannot close door 1993 jeep larado


you probably nee d a new door latch assembly; inside the door, take alot of wd40, lube the door latch were it closes against striker pin, to free the movable part of the latch; push in on the door handle (like your opening the door), at the same time use a pointy screwdriver awl or flat blade scredriver and push the latch up and out of the locked position, its the movable part in the door latch, hopefully its not bent and will not move. also sometimes the door hinges wear out and the latch striker does not line up with the door latch pin, see if they line up if they do not close the door while lifting it at the same time. I hope this helps you

Remove the trim from inside the vehicle and release the latch rod manually. Once it is open you can further diagnose the problem. It may just need to be lubed from the inside.

Kia Sedona seat stuck


Got it, with the help and eyes of my wife. The rear latch releases as the seat back is lowered. This release is ALMOST seat back down (about 3 inches above the seat bottom). As the seat back lowers, apply constant lift on the rear latch, and it will release as the seat back lowers. Hard-won knowledge - I think I invented some bad words in the process.
