Question about 1997 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

1997 Lincoln Town Car The drivers door lock is not working mechanically in automatic, something loose, I can hear it rattling inside the door when you us the remote. The rubber grommet that holds something in place that is located on lower left side is missing and I can see a small piece of metal and the rod to the lock moving when you work it manually. I have done nothing so far.

Hi all you need to do is take the door panel/card off and refit the rod it will push into a whole and it will be held in place by a push on clip, this clip will have more than likely fell into the bottom of the door, it will be a small black metal clip that goes around the rod and holds it into the lock at the other end.

this rod tends to fall off if the door has been slammed a few times of they can just work loose.

once you have the door panel off you will see what i mean about the small metal clip, this is an easy job to do and it only requires pushing the end of the rod into its place then put the metal clip over the top then your lock will be working again.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Some local auto parts have replacement door/hinge pin-kits for Ford products. (If not order from your local Ford dealer) The pins may need heated with a torch and driven out with a long spline pin punch. You might want to get a mechanic to do this for you.

If it is the switch, both switches have to be defective, which is not impossible, but very unlikely. If during movement of another window you can distinguish the motor sound, but do no hear anything alike from the left back door's window, it is either the motor, or a loose wire after the switch. Most likely the point of interruption is where the door wires enter the door, due to constant bending there. Finally, if you hear the motor, it is the mechanism which the motor drives.
