SOURCE: how to replace rear turn signal light bulb

I just changed my rear turn signal. Really easy. There is two 1/4 inch bolts visible when you open the tailgate. Take both of those out and gently lift the light housing out towards the outside of the vehicle. There is two small clamps on the other side of the fixture that just slide right out when you pull on it. There you go

SOURCE: i have a 2000 explorer xlt fuse keeps blowing on door locks

They should be the same keys. The fuse may be blowing because the wires that go to the rear hatch have a wear point where the wires bend in the rubber area between the hatch and the body. If you get it open then look there first, it may be grounded out.

Hatchback window latch stuck on 2004 ford explorer limited


The hatch window is locked and unlocked by an electric motor on your remote. If your sure the button on the remote is working (make sure by trying another remote that's programmed for your vehicle) the problem lies in the motor or its fuse, most likely the motor or latch linkage is jammed. If you open the tailgate itself, you will need to remove the trim panel to access the glass hatch release from there. Remove the plug wires to the glass hatch and check for voltage when pressing the remote with a DC voltmeter. If no voltage and you're sure the remote is good, there is an open circuit or bad fuse. If there is voltage the motor is bad or jammed. Try these steps and let us know what happened.

2003 ford explorer rear hatch replacement


A salvage yard. You may have to buy the door with the glass.
Some automotive glass shops will sell you the glass, but I would think the price would be close to the same as a dealer.

Rear hatch on my 2001 explorer will not open, rear window will but tailgate hatch will not. how do i open it with out the unlock button, no manual release that i can see...


I had a clip break when I tried to open my tailgate. I had to remove my inside hatch panel and find my way to the handle assembly. A little plastic clip (shaped like a T) had finally worn out, which wouldn't hold the locking arms, and I had to go to a Ford dealership for a $3 part; tailgate has worked fine since then!

2004 Ford Freestar SEL real hatch locked cant open. where or how do I find direction to fix


Kathy, You would need a small screw driver and a foot rule or a metal strip about an inch wide and a foot long. Collected? Now, with the screw driver you must remove the plastic moulding that is there on the outer side of the drivers door glass. Just put the screw driver head in the gap between the moulding and the door frame and push upwards. Do it at a number of places and the moulding will come out. After that you must insert the foot rule between the glass pane and the gap in the door over the place where the key hole is directly below it. Push the foot rule down so that you hear a click sound. If you hear it you will notice the door lock has opened. Cheers. Now replace the moulding by placing it where it was and pressing it downwards till the whole moulding is in its place.

I cant open the glass on my back hatch any suggestions?


The glass hatch release handles fail all the time on these models (which is why the system was eliminated in 2009 models).

The glass hatch handle is $32 list from the dealer.

Removal and replacement requires a philips screwdriver and a 10mm socket and ratchet with extension.

Open the glass hatch by manually activating it through the access hole on the inside of the tailgate (small square panel covering it)

Remove the two philips screws and the one pop fastener holding the plastic trim on the back of the glass hatch handle area.

Remove the two 10mm nuts holding the handle on, unplug the wire and remove, noting the routing of the wiring on removal.

Reassemble in opposite order, being sure to route the wiring correctly.

2004 Freestar hatch will not unlock


There is a tendancy for the Triggers from the handle to Disengage internally to the Latch due to Wear and Tear, or sometimes Stressing the Mechanism when the Tailgate is Locked and someone forgot.
Gently unfasten the trim panels around the Tailgate, from the INSIDE, and if you THINK about the project, you will be able to release enough of this All in One piece enough to trip the triggers by hand, and open the Tailgate. Continue to unfasten the moulded grips, and remove the whole panel. This will then give you the access to fix the Release mechanism, mounted on the Tailgate inner body.
Regards, DT
