You will need to remove the door panel and unplug and wiring for power windows, locks, speakers, etc. Then support the bottom of the door with a floor jack or block of wood. A friend to help would be good. Unbolt the door at the door hinge either on the door or the body, depending on how it is mounted. You will need metric wrenches, and sockets, screwdrivers for the door panel .

    Where the front of the door meets the body will be 2 hinges. Usually the hinge will be bolted to either the door or the body.It could be pinned together and the pin needs to be driven out. You will have to open the door and determine how it is secured . They are a pain to get into , lack of room to work. Hope that helps

How do i take the entire drivers side door off of my 2011 HHR? Its a DIY project n cant afford what the insurance isnt covering. My car was T-boned and wont even open. Basically smashed shut.


You need to have the door forced open before you can access the hinges and remove it.
Remove the interior door trim and the door can be unbolted at the door hinge area. Examine the door on the undamaged passenger side before you do anything.

You would have to get a locksmith to cut a key from scratch by making an impression of the lock.

CENTRAL LOCKING ON 99 T REG FORD ESCORT


Some of the Escorts do not have central locking. If the keys open both front doors, the hatch and fit the ignition then I would not worry too much about it. You may find that you also have a hatch release catch at the side of the drivers seat also. I trust this information helps you.
