All you need is a 13mm boxed end wrench. The tensioner pulley is the one all the way on the bottom towards the rear of the van. You can reach it under the van. Slide under the van in front of the passenger front tire and you will wee the pulley. Put the wrench on the bolt and pull towards you to release the tension on the belt.

SOURCE: How do you remove Tailgate interior PANEL on Ford

The procedure is as follows:--
Step 1. Open the tailgate fully.

Step 2. Remove the plastic surround which is part of the housing for the lever which opens the tailgate from the inside. This surround is held by one plastic lugs. The center of these lugs is found at- TOP EDGE ie edge closest to glass. One lug can be found  in from each side. The third lug is in the middle, from the edge.
SIDES: One lug on each side  down from each top corner.

BOTTOM: (4 lugs in total) One lug can be found  in from each side. 
Start at the top right corner by sliding the flathead screwdriver between the carpet trim and the plastic surround  from the side. Push the screwdriver in firmly and gently twist at the same time. You will feel the lug come free. Repeat this process at the center of each lug. The surround will come free. It is fragile; if it breaks,you can get spare lugs at local auto part stores.
Step 3. Move to the bottom of the tailgate. With a 1/4 turn the 4 plastic fasteners can be removed.

Step 4. With the plastic surround removed in step 2, this has revealed 2 torx head screws. Remove them. The only thing holding the complete trim to the door now are the four fragile plastic tabs at the top. DO NOT PULL THE TOP OF THE PANEL. These four fasteners hold the top of the panel at the bottom of the window and fit into slots where the open side faces the top of the door. The trim panel is slid upwards to disengage these fasteners. Before sliding the trim up, you must support the trim while you disconnect a power supply connector on the right hand side. This can be done with one hand. Then slide the whole panel toward the top of the door, working the fasteners out of their slots. This is the only way you will remove this panel without breaking the panel itself. The trim is very light and will now come away.
Thanks. keep updated for any more can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

2004 ford freestar only surges at 50 plus mph?

Sound like you may need a fuel tank OR a filler tube. First though you need to call FORD and see if they have a RECALL on the fuel tanks for this issue. This could be causing you surge as well, OR if you haven't already changed the EGR Valve I would suggest you fix both of these problems. Hope this helps and have an awesome day.

How can I repair this switch or at least jumper it out to be able to open the door? in this particular model the fuel door has a safety lock feature that keeps the door from opening when you are fill...

your fuel door lock probably works on a cable set-up if the lever is broken by the gas tank you may be able to access it by the inside of your fender well or when you open your filler door you should be able to unscrew your filler hose line and see what the problem is. to replace it you may have to drop your tank. if you do not care about the lock then open the door and super glue the lock tab back . however you may have a warning light that will stay on. if tab is broken you may be able to glue it if the cable is broken then you will have to replace it.

My 2004 freestar refueling problem

This is a venting problem. When the gas goes in, the air has to come out. If the air vent is blocked, the fuel wil spit back as the air forces it's way out the filler pipe.

Sometimes the vent pipe is inside the filler pipe, sometimes it runs alongside the filler pipe.

For the 2003 Winstar, it is a separate fresh air hose. Frestar was it's replacement in 2004 so it may be different. Check for a plugged or kinked hose.
