There's an easier way. I can only answer for the coupe though. Inside the cup on the door there is a pop out panel. Use a flat head screw driver and pop it out, you will then see two phillips screws. Remove and lift the assembly out. Disconnect the wires and pop the switch out from top.

It says there is a door open when everything is closed how do I fix it


Typically it is the drivers front door switch that is stuck. The BCM or GEM module can be scanned to find out which door is causing the light to stay on. Once you know you can replace the switch. They are available from ford and money time from your local NAPA. the switch is mounted to the door latch. The door panel will need to be moved and if it's your first time replacing a switch it will be easier to remove the door latch to see how it mounts.

Side mirror is leaking on floorboard every time it rain.s


you need to remove the door panel as the bolts holding on the mirror are on the inside. roll down the window.,as the door panel has to come up and out. This is easier done with the window down especially for reinstallation of the door panel. Remove the power window switch assembly ,handle, screws,and the clips that hold on the door panel.you need a flat pry tool for the clips.they pop out of the holes in the door.once the panel is off,the plug for the mirror and the nuts are removed.the new mirror and seal is replaced and the door panel re attached.

Need to remove rear right side door panel to fix the window


More that likely, the plastic guides that run up and down the "window regulator" are broken. If you take off the door panel, check for broken plastic pieces in the inside of the door shell. It is a common problem. However, the fix is not that easy - or cheap. It requires replacing the entire "regulator" with a new one. The repair requires removing the door panel, taking off the screws that hold the dual rail regulator and cables and unplugging the motor. The new regulator is about $70 from RockAuto.com or you can order from Autozone for around $105-115. I can't find anyone who sells it without the motor which is probably not bad. However, replacing the whole thing is much easier anyway. I'd suggest that you get the new one before you remove the old one. It is a lot easier to see how to take it out if you know what it looks like.

I need to change the lock in my drivers side door


first with the L/F window lowered, remove the door trim. Before disconnecting window switch, raise the window all the way up . Now, look inside the door to where the lock cylinder is. You need to unclip the attached linkage to the lock cylinder. Remove "C" clip, ( careful you don't damage outer door panel ) securing cylinder to door and remove lock.

Door locks don't work


Disassemble the paneling on left side ,under the steering wheel. Remove all screws and pull out the panel until you can you can reach behind it to remove the two Black Relays, on the side closest to Steering wheel. Remove the Relay covers, Clean the contacts with a 1/8 fine strip of 600 wet/dry sand paper. Only place the paper between the contacts, and pull out while holding slight pressure on the relay Armature. Turn over the sandpaper and repeat once again. Very gently press the TOP resting contact pad closer to the armature, to lessen the gap between the contact points, so the armature doesn't have to travel as far to reach the closed contact position. Repeat the above with the other2nd Relay. Replace the covers, reinstall the relays And test the Door locks prior to buttoning up the paneling. Note, a pair of long needle nosed pliers will help in removing the relays. Just Grip the relay and rock in Forward and Backward as you apply upward pressure.
