Question about 1991 Ford Explorer

2 Answers

Greetings - I have a 1992 Ford explorer, the driver side door is jammed shut. It will not open from outside or inside. I am thinking I must rip open the inside door to get to the lock! What do you think.

2 options. Find a tow truck company and have them go through the window with a " slim jim" tool to open door, so as not to ruin it, or take apart the interior panel

Why is my driver side door not opening from the outside or inside of my mercury Milan 2006. Now it will open from the outside if I pull on the handle at the same time I hit unlock on the key fob?


Matthew, Interior door panel will have to come off to inspect, sounds like the automatic lock actuator is not extending far enough to unlock properly, the lock actauator probably needs replaced and make sure to lubricate everthing when door is apart, all latch,rods and mechanisms.
Check the attached links,

on my 1999 ford expedition, there is a switch or lever on the inside visible side of door when open that can change the mode for child locks on or off.

The code to punch on the driver's door has nothing to do with the child locks.

Good luck on this.

My driver side door wont open from inside or outside


it appears you have a broken latch
the bad news is when your latch breaks like this you will end up destroying the interior door skin in order to get the door open

the good news is that almost any good garage can make the repair quickly

1998 4x4 ford explore driver side door will not


There are long linkage rods from the inside handle to the latch assembly. There should be an adjustment on these links. Too tight keeps latch from locking, too loose it won't unlatch. Use a screw driver or rod to trip the latch asm so you don't have to keep opening and closing the door. Also if it sticks closed and won't unlatch, the door won't be locked closed on you.

1992 Ford Explorer Sport. Outside door handle not


Door handle seems loose and not connected? Then the plastic clip broke inside the door. Take off the door panel, 3 screws, and door lock cap and plastic insert around inside door handle. pry around the bottom first, and go up, when you reach the top, pull up, please be carefull to not break any more plastic. you will see a squarish opening midway up the door toward the latch. reach in and pull a rod toward the opening. You see a broken piece of plastic on the tip? if so take it off and get the replacement part for it at an autoparts store, install the new one and your set. I have broke to many of these so i ended up bending the end of the rod and using a nut to hold it in.:]

Door won't unlatch or come open


Ford had a problem with the door handles not working properly. They are cheap plastic. If the exterior door handle is broken, you will need to drill out the rivets that hold it in, and then get the door open and the panel off. You have to disconnect the rod going to it. Then, remove the handle. If you don't want to drill again, I suggest replacing the rivets with a bolt and nut easily obtainable at your hardware store. I've found that a M7 bolt works very well. If you are having a problem with the interior door handle, it's the same problem. Remember to check your door latch because if your exterior handle is broken, then your latch isn't working properly. I got one at Ford for about 40 bucks.
