A good place to get directions with pictures for the door panel removal is Muth Co.


www.kwmuth.com

Enter your Truck info, on the product page is a URL for the PDF version of the instructions. Obviously only follow them to the point of getting the door panel off, no need to remove the mirror head.

A plastic clip that holds the lock linkage is probably broke or worn. You need to pull of the inner door panel to see whats going on inside. Use the remote and see whats happening. It could be bent rod in door from someone using a slim jim to unlock it when they locked the keys in it at some point. Bend the rod and try the remote again untill it works properly.

1998 Ford F150 supercab - passenger side door won't open


Get inside the backseat remove two screws that hold the side window. Gently pull the top plastic panel out all around and the panel will come out. It is held by about six clips. Then remove the screws and a nut off the bottom panel. These are all at the top of the bottom panel. Remove a couple of screws thatholds the inside doorl latch. Once all out then simply lift up on the bottom panel and it will come out. Remove the plastic sheet that overs the side door underneath the panel. Now you can see the whole mechanisim for the unlatch. On my truck the problem was with the top cable going into the latch mechanisim. The top cable came loose, out of the slot that held it in place. I pit it back into the slot and made a metal clip to keep it in place. If your interested I can add picture of the clip. Reassembled the door and was done in about three hours.

My passenger side door will not lock using the key fob or by pushing the button on the door. The alarm no longer beeps when you push lock on the key fob.


the alarm is not operating because the door isnt locking ,to locate the fault you will need to remove the door panel anbd have a look ,it may just need a good squirt of engine oil in a proper oil can ,no spray as it dries out too quick
