Passenger door can be opened from inside but not from outside...how too fix???


Remove the door lining and look inside by the lock. There is a linkage that has come adrift. To remove the door lining, remove handles, escutcheons, and arm rests. Using a wide blade screw driver gently pop the plastic rivets that hold the lining to the door.

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.

My driver side door will unlock but won't open.


This sounds like the LAtch is STICKING and needs to be Replaced or Lubed up Real Good. But Also the Lock Cylinder Needs Lubercated, I Recomend PB Blaster< Its a PENETRATING OIL that Does the JOB GOOD. You Must FIRST get the Door Back OPEN to Srpay the LATCH down.You can Play with it till it Opens Or have A $40.00 an hour Lock-Smith Do it for you. I Know this may not seem like Much HELP But if you can Get the Door open the Rest is a Breeze. To REPLACE Latch>>.Remove Door Pannel, There ARE HIDDEN Screws From the Handle UP But the Lower part of Pannel is SNAPED on. There are Links to & From Latchto Remove, 1 From Inside Handle, 1 From Outside Handle, 1 From Inside LOCK, 1 From Outside LOCK, And For POWER LOCKS, there Is 1 from the Power Lock Solinoid. TAKE A Super lose Up PICTURE of it if Possible, For Memory of Where they Go. The Lock has 3 - 4 Screws IN DOOR JAM SIDE that Holds it in Remove them and Latch Comes Out. REVERSE to INSTALL. Hope this Helps you!

My driver side door wont open how do i get it


sounds like the door lach is sticking
use some wd40 spray the lock and let it sit 4 a while
now since you have the inside skin off reach inside the door with 1 hand and try and open the door from the outside and see if the lock bar moves it usualy pushes down i think on a lach
if it goes up and down with no resistance make sure it is contacting the lach if yes make sure the door is unlocked
somtimes the lock is just stuck
after unlock open the door
push down on lock bar attached to lock then pull up on it if that fails to open door
after that all fails unlock door have friend pull handle and then give the door a good kick from inside just remember not the kick the glass

Doors will not open


Both doors with both inside and outside handles? Are the handles broke. You will have to remove the door panels with the doors shut to get to the latch to open the doors. This is kind of tough with the seat in the way but you can do it.
