SOURCE: i have a 2001 chevy

Same problem here. I finally got it after soaking the bottom latch with WD40 for a week. I ended up cutting the bottom rubber seal OFF below the latch. With a BMF screwdriver and hammer and three swings...it opened. The bottom of the latch has an "L" shaped metal guide-this is not the latch. Beside that, towards the rear of the truck, is the latch. The bottom part of the latch must be forced towards the cab and upwards at about a 45 degree angle. After removing the part I could see that it couldn't be unlatched from the inside no matter how much lubricant, heat, cussing or beer drinking I did. TOTAL COST: Latch-about $58 dollars (dealer item only)
Rubber seal- $25 or so
Beer-$22

SOURCE: F150 third door top lock won't release

there's a cable that runs from the door mech up to the top latch, need to pull down on this cable to release the top latch. Only way I could pull down enough to release was through the hole just left of the opening for the mech...cable is attached to the door frame with plastic tie wrap...pop this out so the cable is free in there and then just pry down with a screwdriver...make sure your pulling the handle at the same time. Once the door is open, it's easy to see what happening, most likely the cable is stretched out too much. I just ordered the part from Ford, the cable and top latch come as one part...about $60.

SOURCE: how to remove the door latch rods

Depending on what type of clip you have, you'll need to take a small flathead screwdriver and pry the plastic clip off the rod or you will need to take a needlenose pliers and squeeze the plastic end of the clip to release the tension on the rod and than pull the rod out.

SOURCE: third door 2002 s10 will not open replaced broken

The handle you replaced is a dual action. It should have two linkage arms. 1 coming down from the top & one coming up from the bottom. Sometimes the little plastic keepers that the rods snap into that hold them on to the handle become worn out. Hopefully replace the lower keeper. They may look ok, but it is a very small tolerance.

I have a 98 chevy z71 and the third door when it's shut it seems like the bottom of its not latching u can pull on the bottom and it comes out a bit so there is a rattle what can I do


It probably needs door hinge pin bushings replaced. The pins that hold the hinge together have plastic or neoprene bushings that aren't made to last.

You can try going up from the bottom behind the bumper cover, otherwise you may have to get a body shop to remove the front cover to get access to the latch.
