First, keep in mind that as you begin to remove these doors you run the risk of causing serious scratches to the paint and glass, so put some masking tape and/or plastic sheeting around both sides of the door (rear quarter panel and rear glass, front door and front door glass)
I would get a Haynes repair guide since that's what I have to work from and it will tell you step by step with pictures, what to do. It's not hard, but you need to get all of the attach points unhooked to be successful. Suggest you have a helper working with you to keep the door steady.

SOURCE: 2002 sienna right sliding door will not close

Hold the door handle in the open position while using a bent coat hanger on the door catch lever.Sometimes a flathead screwdriver works to pry the door catch as well. Good luck, keep me posted.

Driver side sliding door on 04 freestar van non power wont open after opening and closing the fuel door


There is obviously a switch on the fuel door that prevents the sliding door from operating while the fuel door is open. Look for that switch and spray some electrical cleaner (or even "Brake Kleen" from an auto parts store). Both evaporate quickly without leaving residue. The switch is probably "gunky."

Repair Van sliding door runner


If the Pontiac Trans Sport Van door is in the process of closing or opening (via motor), and the vehicle's ignition is engaged prior to the door fully closing or opening, the motor immediately stops. At this point, the only recourse is to manually close the door, as none of the power switches/handles respond again until the door has been manually closed. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Wiring diagram for 2000 ford windstar auto sliding doors


I've ran into this issue before, its the pin switches on the doors themselves, the sliding contacts plain old wear out, Ford has an updated pin switch assy for both sliding doors, much more robust. Visit your local Ford Dealer Parts department and they can help you out, the kit comes with a new harness for inside the door, pin switches and contact pads for both doors.

I have a 1998 windstar gl and my sliding door will not open. nor will it close all the way. wont budge, and is ajar


It sounds like the latch may not have opened all the way last time you opened it and then when you tried to close it, the latch jammed on the pin.

I would get inside the van and try to force the sliding door open at the rear where it swings out on the rails. The latch is going to have to be jarred loose.

If you get it open, check and make sure the "fingers" on the latch are completely opened before closing it again, and give them some lubrication.
