97 Mercury Mountaineer driver side door won't open. Outside handle flops around; inside handle won't open door

Try a slim jim first, down the side of the window. Or AAA or locksmith. If no luck, remove the seat first. Find the screws and bolts around the door handle and arm rest. Most Ford's have screws around the outer side of the panel. I don't believe your's does. The panel lifts or pops off. Once the panel is off, you can reach down and open the door. Just a note. I have done some to where the panel came out in pieces.

Removing drivers side door panel ( inside panel )

Explorer/Mountaineer and 1993-99 Ranger
See Figures 1 and 2
  1. Open the window.
  2. Unscrew the door lock knob.
  3. On Explorer/Mountaineer, remove the 2 screws retaining the trim panel located above the door handle.
  4. On Ranger, remove the two screws in the armrest and remove it.

Fig. 1: Exploded view of the front door trim panel


Fig. 2: Exploded view of the Explorer and Mountaineer 4-door rear door trim panel

  1. If equipped with manual window crank handles, pull off the handle cover, then remove the attaching screw.
  2. Remove the trim cup behind (Explorer/Mountaineer) or around (Ranger) the door handle using a small prying tool. Retention nibs will flex for ease of removal.
  1. If equipped with power accessories, use the notch at the lower end of the plate and pry the plate off. Remove the plate from the trim panel and pull the wiring harness from behind the panel. Disconnect the harness from the switches.
  2. Remove any retaining screws uncovered by the removed trim pieces.
  3. Using a flat wood spatula, insert it carefully behind the panel and slide it along to find the push-pins. When you encounter a pin, pry the pin outward. Do this until all the pins are out. NEVER PULL ON THE PANEL TO REMOVE THE PINS!
  4. Lift slightly to disengage the panel from the flange at the top of the door
  1. Disconnect the door courtesy lamp and remove the panel completely. Replace any damaged or bent attaching clips.
  2. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Hope this helps (remember to rate this answer).

I have a 2000 Mercury Mountaineer and the driver side and the rear driver side door locks stick when I try to unlock the doors. I have to press unlock several times until the doors unlock. It happens...

You'll need to remove the inside door panel after removing the interior door handle plastic. The spray the lock mechanism with silicone spray. Don't use WD40 as it will dry up and things will stick again. The best thing to use is a chain oil, like for a motorcycle chain. That oil is a sticky oil and can be sprayed on as you physically move the lock to help the oil penetrate. the sticky chain oil does not dry out and will last much longer then even silicone spray, but you may eventually need to do this job again. If you don't have a manual for your vehicle it would be a good idea, since it will have specific steps for removing the door panel for access. Hope this helps and please rate my solution - and thanks for using Fixya!!

Just bought a 2002 Mountaineer w/keyless entry. The problem is no one at the dealer knows the code. How can I reset it?

In the 2002 Mercury Mountaineer, especially with the 3rd row seat, remove the trim panels at the rear of the back door and at the tailgate on the passenger side. You will see two panels where the wall seat belt is located, remove the top panel first and then pull the lower panel out.Then pull the lower trim panel forward CAREFULLY. Towards the front (near the door opening) you will see a small black box (says Security Unit) On it in fairly small print will be the 5 digit code.
[ONE set of FIVE numbers and that is your CODE number.]

How to remove the right rear door panel on a 2005 mountaineer

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

Entry code om drivers door

The keyless entry module is located in the rear of the vehicle on the driver's side. You will need to partially remove the left rear panel in the cargo area. You will then see the keyless entry module bolted behind a metal reinforcement bar. There is a sticker on the module that has the 5 digit entry code.
