2002 Ford Escape Vinyl Panel on Interior Front doors Unglued

I have a 2002 Escape XLT. On the inside of both front doors there is an oblong oval shaped panel inset into the door. It is vinyl that was apparently adhered to a foamy backing. On both front doors the vinyl has separated from the foam and is hanging off. A spray adhesive sold for headliners only held the vinyl back on for a few months. I was told by the manager of a body shop I could buy a new vinyl clad foam panel and install it by removing the entire inside door panel. I have studied the parts diagram and it appears only the full inside door panel is sold, not the vinyl insert. Ideas?

SOURCE: Replace Passenger Side Mirror on 2002 Ford F-150

On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door

SOURCE: how to remove front driver side door panel (2000 ford expedition)

There is a triangular piece, at top corner, covering a screw behind the mirror. Remove that screw. Remove the piece that covers the handle and remove the screw holding the handle to the door. Look through, where door handle was and remove another screw just above where the handle was. This screw is holding the panel to the actual door. Pop the cover off for the automatic door locks and disconnect them. Lift the panel in an upward direction.

SOURCE: Remove door panel on a Ford Van

For a 1999 Ford Econoline 150 (assume the same or very similar), remove triangular plastic cover over mirror assembly by prying straight out, remove plastic door handle cover by prying up from the front side, remove electronic door switches by prying up from back side, remove round plastic cover at bottom rear of door panel. Four screws are now revealed, remove them. Lift door panel straight up, clips are hooks (not snap in). Work door switch assembly out of door panel. Set door panel aside. Reassemble in reverse order.

2002 Ford Escape XLT V6 - The driver's door will not open from the outside. It will open from the inside.


You need to open the door up and reconnect the rod that connects the handle to the door release after repairing what ever is damaged. Typically this rod is held on the door release with a plastic clip assembly and it tends to break after time or when someone has attempted to use a hanger or "Slim Jim" to unlock the door. I'm not saying someone tried to break in but that is a possibility.

Rattle under the front end?


The rattle may be stabilizer link rod bushings or a strut mount loosening up as for the engine light you must hook up a code reader to determine the problem otherwise you may be replacing parts blindly.
