There is no way to post/attach such info on this site, I would suggest you try to buy a factory manual on ebay, they are much cheaper there than at the dealer who would want the dead to your house.

Need detailed diagram of 1998 latch mechanism to remove connections from it

there is no diagram... the latch is also a non-servicable latch, so if your problems in the latch- it needs a latch. i would look more closely at the outside door handle itself as i have seen a few of them break on the E series may be able to get detailed instructions thru or @ autozone. hope this helps and good luck

Door cables coming apart

I realize that these postings are several months old but if anyone is in search of replacement parts for the door cable on a Ford Econoline, please email

In most cases it is not the cable itself that breaks, but the plastic retainer tips at the end of the cable that deteriorates over time. We have both plastic and aluminum versions of these tips that can be purchased and attached to your door cables.
