Question about 1981 Ford F 100
Thanks shaggy but now could you help me with the locking mechanism. Also my car is a 1981 ford XD. I couldn't find the make of my car in the list so I clicked on whatever ... as a female would! With the drivers door I cannot open the door from the outside and can only open it if I hold up the snipper rod and pulling the inner doorhandle open. Hence always having to either crawl through passenger side or leave window open. I was told it was the spring lock thingy (?) so I grabbed another from the wreakers. All I need now is very very VERY simple instructions in full so I can change them over.
The inner door lock assembly.unscrew door handle window winder handle and unscrew lock knob.door panel should be held on by plastic push on plugs,pull off from the bottom up ,remove screws, if any. When plugs have been seperated lift panel upwards to clear top of inner door panel.Undo inner door handle and release from lock joiner rod.close to the inner door handle is a plastic rod link should be white rotate outer part until its released.the door lock<key>has a plate holding it to the door remove it and remove the lock from the rod.Remove outr door handle and remove from the rod At the bottom of the door is a bolt holding the window channel,remove the channel by unbolting,pull back window rubber and wiggle steel channel down until it slides out so the inner lock can be accessed.Remove the three large screws holding the outer door lock.it should be able to be removed. place the locks next to each other so you dont mix up the rods when you swap them over.assembly is the reverse order wind the window all the way up before you start.
