Question about 1997 Mercury Cougar XR7
My driver side door on my 97' cougar has been stuck shut for a year now. Had it jimmied open and was getting by on just pulling the latch arm that connects to the inner hinge of interior handle. And oneday I shut it and can not open since, it's pretty close quarters working with the door shut. (haven't tried the jimmy yet again)
Hi there I had a similar problem on a 98' ford explorer and replaced the door lock actuator and solved the problem in one shot. If you never worked in cars well it will be a little tricky but if you have little experience well then you have to remove the door panels carefully to avoid damaging any plastic hold screws, once removed try to aceess the door lock from the panel to get it open since it is easier to work. Now with the door open and window up then remove the mounting brackets of the window in order to get to the lock actuator. It is hold by two only one screw just remove the wire hook up and remove actuator. install new one and put everything back good luck..
