Question about 2006 Ford Freestar
My driver side sliding door of my 2006 Ford Freestar will not open or close. It is stuck in the poition of partially open and the door chime is continuous. When I pull on the inside handle it doesn't feel like it is attached to anything. Any idea on how to get the panel off so I can get a look on the inside of the door. The only screw is directly behind the handle itself and all that does is remove the plastic face behind the handle. I imagine it just takes some forceful prying, but I don't wnat to wreck it unnecessarily. Jeff McDonald email@example.com
You would get to the door mechanism from inside the car. Yes the handle inside will have a screw or two. The inside paneling is held on with hidden poppers. The plastic of these will be brittle by now so you will break some pulling it off. You can get a sort of mini crowbar with a handle for leavering these off. Inside you will find the door sealed with polythene stuck down with sticky glue, peal that back to get to the mechanism. You will be able to operate the rods and whatnot. I expect a rod has fallen off.

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: rear window will not operate,
Try to locate the relay center, usually located under the hood or sometimes in the trunk. In your case, possibly an access panel in the back. Once you locate the relay center, look at the inside of the cover that you removed. There is usually a diagram of the relays and what they are used for.
1. Look for the relay that has any thing to do with the windows.
2. Locate another relay in the same panel that has the same part number.
3. Switch that relay with the one for the windows.
4. Try to operate the window.
If the window now operates, then replace the relay as soon as possible. If it doesn't, then look for another fuse panel. They can be in a number of different locations, in the glove box, under the dash, inside the kick panels just in front of the doors and in the trunk. Try the same thing with the fuses if you find a bad one. I hope this information has been helpful. Thank you for using Fixya.com.
