SOURCE: how do you adjust door latchs

I don't think the problem is the door latches. Sounds more likely that the hinge pins are gone. You say you have to lift the door and slam it. When the hinge pins go the door will sag and you will need to lift it up to align with the striker pin on the door frame. Get a new set of hinges for your truck.

Hope this helps

Mike

SOURCE: Driver's side door not latching / closing

pull the outside handle and unlatch the latching assembly by hand by insertins a screwdriver where the striker would normally be if the door were closed - and pry out.

You can adjust the striker by loosening the bolts, and moving it in toward the cabin.

If the door itself is droopy, adjustments are made by the hinge by loosening the bolts and lifting up or down.

Multiple attempts will be necessary to get it just right.

Dont get frustrated if it doesnt fit properly in the 1st or second attempt.
Good Luck!!

SOURCE: rear passenger door will not open

I bought my Cherokee new and until 06 I never had a problem with the doors. When 1 latch went all the others went shortly thereafter. You WILL HAVE to replace the latches. I've done all 4 doors and the rear latch. You can do it relatively easy but the latch NEEDS to be replaced. You may get it to work every now and then, but it will FAIL again, just replace it and you'll be happy.

2007 ford freestar lift gate will not open even though I can hear the lock disengaging. Still feels locked. It is manual open, but cannot lift it, feels locked.


Try pressing the door closed while unlocking and releasing. If the door previously has been slammed shut hard or just due to general wear and tear the latching mechanism can become slightly relocated. This means that when the door closes the door is pressing tighter than normal against the door seal. The compressed door seal will put a lot of strain on the latch mechanism and can hinder its retraction when released. By pressing the door closed and therefore removing the strain due to the door seal you might allow the release mechanism enough freedom of movement to retract when released. If having got the door open then immediately adjust/relocate and lubricate the lock/release mechanism such that you achieve a happy medium of the door closing with a weatherproof seal but not so tightly as to put the latch under a lot of strain.

Doors are very hard to shut on my 1988 Dodge ram


I'm not sure what you were told but the (knobs) are the strikers. Do the latches in the door line up with the strikers? Do the doors hang straight? You might need to adjust the hinges or the striker. If it all does line up then you might need a new latch.
