You'll need to 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. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

SOURCE: 2000 ford explorer door handle

I assume you mean the drivers door. You need to remove the door panel and there are two nuts on the inside holding it on.The door panel has three retaining screws and you need to locate and remove. You then slide the door panel up and then remove it.DON'T pry the panel out you will break it.One screw is on the bottom of the panel. You should see that one. The other ones are under the door switch area and the inside door handle trim.Some have one under the remote mirror trim but not likely.That should give you access to the door handle nuts. Good Luck and I hope this helps you. Thanks Dan

remove phillips scew and the door handle. remove padded arm rest on the door by lifting it up, and remove 2 screws. You can use a panel tool to remove the plastic toggle like pins holding the panel border in. Be as gentle as possible they may break due to becoming brittle.

Driver's Side Door
NOTE This procedure is for models with power windows. If equipped with manual windows, refer to the procedure for the Passenger Side Door Panel.


NOTE Do not grasp in grip depression when pulling off grip recess, as there is a strut secured to door trim underneath.

  1. If necessary, make sure you have the radio code.
  2. Make sure the ignition if OFF, then disconnect the negative battery cable.
  3. Insert a suitable prytool in lower partition between the panel and grip recess.

  4. Unclip the grip recess upward out of door trim. Do NOT reach into grip depression while doing so, to prevent damage to brace.
  5. Press the locking lug against the connector (3 – arrow) and pull it off.
    42075_vwca_g0158.gif Unclip the grip recess (2) upward out of door trim. Do NOT reach into grip depression while doing so, to prevent damage to brace (1). Then , press the locking lug against the connector (3 – arrow) and pull it off
  6. Unscrew the 7 mounting bolts.
  7. Unclip the door trim at the sides using disassembly pliers 3392, or equivalent.
  8. Lift the door trim up out of window recess.
    42075_vwca_g0159.gif Unfasten the 7 bolts (arrows). Use pliers to unclip the door trim (1) at the sides, then lift the trim up out of the window recess
  9. Unclip the cable guide using a prytool, pull out the bracket in the direction of the arrow, then unhook the cable hook.
    42075_vwca_g0160.gif Unclip the cable guide (1) using a prytool (2), pull out the bracket (3) in the direction of the arrow, then unhook the cable hook (4)

  2. The remainder of installation is the reverse of the removal procedure, noting the following:
    • Before installing door trim, check all clips and replace as necessary, and insert into mounts of door trim.
    • After connecting battery, check that the vehicle equipment (radio, clock, electric windows) is operating properly.
    • If the Electronic Control Module (ECM) is subject to low voltage with ignition on, DTC memory and Readiness code must be checked with a scan tool.

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.

I need the location of the power lock fuse for my 2000 Ford Explorer AWD V8


The power lock fuse on your explorer is fuse #18 25 amp located in the central junction box. The central junction box is located on the driver's side end of the instrument panel. Open the driver side door and there should be a access panel. Fuse # 18 is in the second row from the left and the fifth one down. Hope this helps.

Recognizing ford models, namely 2000 explorer


Check the VIN plate in the lower left corner of the dash (driver side) and viewed from outside of truck through windshield. The 11th digit of the VIN should be a letter " Y " which indicates a model year 2000. The VIN number should also be on a label on the driver side door or B post.

How to replace '96 Ford Explorer driver side exterior door handle


You will need to remove the door panel to gain access to the handle. Roll the window up or down as needed to get to the nuts that attach the handle to the door. You will also need to remove a rod the goes to the door lock. You will see the rod after the door panel is removed. Good luck.
