Question about 2006 Ford Fusion
We replaced the interior rear driver's door handle a few months ago. It worked fine, then one day a friend pulled on it alittle hard and it hasn't opened from the inside since. We have taken the door panel off and the handle is not broken and will move the metal bar, but will not open the door. The child lock is not engaged either.
The linkage from inner handle to latch release could be out of adjustmernt or some of the plastic clips have there threads ripped out. Do a test first. compare the amount of effort resistance felt on the good door

Try getting lube down into the handle and into the latch from inside the back seat area of the car.. You will have to use straw.. If that dosent work try just popping top of inside door panel loose. You should be able to get your arm down in from there..

SOURCE: The rear latch/handle on our
Here's how I repaired mine. Go inside and remove the plastic 2" square plastic cover. By pushing on the lever inside this area, the latch will release. Push on the door at the same time, when the latch is pushed. With the door open, remove all four screws from the plastic panel. Now pry carefully the big plastic panel off the door. There are plastic snaps holding this on, all around the edges. Now there is another metal cover over the latch mechanism under this panel. Remove this. You now can see into the latch area and put the handle back into the slot where it came out of. You'll see that the ends of the handle can be put back on the round bar, but to hold them in place, I attached 2 nylon ties on one end. You can also purchase a metal push on retainer from the local hardware store. Mine has been repaired for 8 months and had no trouble. Ford used no retainer on these handles and after prolonged use, they bend and the handle can be pulled off. A twenty minute job. Your wife can even do it.

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!
