only way to repair is to replace the handles. this is a common problem they use a toothed circle to work the lever and it wears and jumps a tooth basically and it will pop the tooth off if you push it back.so replacement is only fix

there is a lever that the handle slides into on the latch. the lever over time bends and the handle doesn't pull on it. try pulling on an angle either to the left or right. you might need a new latch as the lever is part of the latch.

You will need to remove the interior door panel and inspect the linkages. The offending rod should be obvious and loose.

You will have to open it from the inside-Yes, I have done it and it takes about 15 min. or so.-I have also posted about 40 images, after I opened the door-In an effort to contribute a little to all the lost souls with the Curse of the F150 3rd Door issue. Hope this helps-BTW I just did this on 12/04/2011-found my particular issue-I will need a new cable, so I'll have to go to the dealer tomorrow and buy one. Also included images of the tools needed-Good Luck!
