Go to a Ford dealer and tell the guy in the parts department the year and make of your vehicle and what you need. Good luck. Jeff M.

Sound like you have a dammaged door latch assembly. It is a pain but you have to take the insid door trim panal off to see what you are doing and make sure the latch assy is un locking. Dis connect power door lock motor linkage to make sure motot is not jaming the lock in the lock possition.

SOURCE: passenger side--manual sliding door will not open

i have not yet corrected the concern but have found the source. in this particular model the fuel door has a safety lock feature that keeps the door from opening when you are fill the fuel. I have found the lever broken on the switch now all i have to do is figure out how to replace it

SOURCE: 2002 ford windstar, neither right nor left

Sounds like the mechanism inside the door has come off, should be a rod and clip that holds it to the latch.

SOURCE: 2006 Ford Fusion. Left front door inside handle

This link is from the handle to the latch. The door panel has to be removed in order for this problem to be fixed. The linkage is inside the door panel, it is a small diamater metal rod called a link. If you do the job yourself be careful not to break the door panel. In a shop, the labor is 1 hour for the job & if any, parts will be a seperate charge.

2001 ford windstar sliding door wont shut


I have found that Windstar sliding doors are subject to amnesia. If they are not opened and closed regularly, they "forget" what they are supposed to do. I make it a point to use my fob regularly to open and close the door (one in my case) to keep it focused on the job at hand

Rear hatch door in ford windstar-mechanism came apart


My back hatch would not open but it appears the lock was sticking and the return spring to the handle is broken. We used the key to unlock the back door and then door opened. Then husband sprayed WD 40 in all the lock holes. Now once we open the door we have to push the handle back down as return spring is still missing but the door opens :) . My van is a 2002 Ford Windstar.

Wiring diagram for 2000 ford windstar auto sliding doors


I've ran into this issue before, its the pin switches on the doors themselves, the sliding contacts plain old wear out, Ford has an updated pin switch assy for both sliding doors, much more robust. Visit your local Ford Dealer Parts department and they can help you out, the kit comes with a new harness for inside the door, pin switches and contact pads for both doors.

How do you open the door on a 2001 Ford Ranger if the exterior door handles have broken? The doors are unlocked. We do not want to break the car window to get inside to open the door.


You can go to a parts store and buy a slim jim. It's a flat metal bar that slides between the glass and the rubber on the door. Get a flashlight and use the tool to hook the linkege that the handle connects to inside the door. You will be able to open it like that. If you don't think you can handle it call a tow company and tell them you need a lock-out. They can get it opened for you for about $50 bucks.

Common problem on 2001 Ford Explores. The reason why your door handle doesn't unlock the door(can't be unlocked by remote either)is due to a broken spring located on the backside of the door handel INSIDE the door. True that your one(or two) of your small exterior springs on your door handle are broken(will cause your handle to flap) but this IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM. The door locks will work if there is a bit of tension holding the handle bracket up. I know it's hard to explain without pics. but here's the ONLY WAY TO FIX THIS. It's not that hard.......... Remove the door panel, only a few screws and a few more holding trim around exit handle then, pull out "snap in" clips on bottom. With a flashlight you'll see back side of door handle. To get to that area you'll have to remove one bolt holding a window frame. Do that(with window in up position) then slide down rail, out of your way. Now, get back to handle. With your light aimed at the backside of handle left slowly the door handle as normal, and you'll realize(while looking at the mechanism) that tension(pulling down of bracket) needs to occur in order for locks(manual and remote)to work properly. Trust me.....you'll figure it out. Once you do, get a spring(pen spring, 30 cent hardware store spring, any small spring!) and hook one end to bracket and the other end to ANYTHING(OUT OF THE WAY) below the door handle thus, causing SLIGHT tension. Try your locks...THEY WILL WORK! YEAH! Replace that one window frame bolt(try your window...just the make sure), replace door panel and your done. TOTAL COST: 30 cents or FREE(if you have a small spring) Ford dealers will charge $150 to $285! Yikes!

2001 ford escape-passenger door handle assembly has small hole for actuating rod to fit in to open the door from outside.This portion seems to have broken off (white metal-alum ect).Is there a fix for this...


I just ordered the part for the inside of the door from a local ford dealer. It was in Michigan and arrived in three days to Missouri so shipping is fairly fast. The part is around $35.00. The part number is 6L8Z-78223N03-AA. Its the inside door reinforcement bracket and it comes with a new bushing for the actuator rod. I hope this helps.
