The door latch is adjustable. loosen the bolts (possible torx head) and move it toward the outside of the car . move it a very small amount, retighten bolts and try closing door. repeat as needed

Rear window wont latch closed


This can probably be fixed by using WD40 to loosen the locking mechanism. If this does not work then the mechanism will need to be replaced.

What do I need to do in order to get the back door on the passenger side to close? A tech from AAA said I needed a spring for the door latch?


if it won`t close look at the door latch mechanism. there should be two u shaped claws that close around the door striker plate pin, sometimes these get closed before the door is closed causing the door not to close and stay closed. if they are closed(claws) pull the door handle to open the door and take something and push the claws out(open) then close the door.

Rear passenger door won't stay closed


Door latch on door itself is in closed position if it will not close at all. In this case, open door and pull outside handle hard to pop open door latch. If you have door opening at random, door latch needs replacing or door catch on body is loose.

Door won't close


Check to see if anything is restricting it from closing inside of the crevice where the wheel travels and locks. Sometimes debris from trees, dirt or rocks can clog it up.

Ford Edge Rear Hatch Pistons


The only way you can do it with new pistons is to install shorter pistons. These will probably not be designed for the weight or leverage requirements of the rear hatch. I suggest installing a small-link chain on each piston from one end to the other to restrain them from full extension. (Stitch a tight cloth sleeve around the chain to keep it from banging and scratching on things when the hatch is closed.) Make one end easily removable (a hook or dog-leash snap) so you can open the hatch all the way elsewhere. A bungee cord or rope installed elsewhere may do the same thing, but may get in your way sometimes. I suspect this solution will be considerably cheaper than new pistons as well as more likely to work.

Van backdoor opens up very high (2.1 m) which is very high to reach when wanting to close again. Weight of the door is also heavy requiring much effort - stretch and strenght - and hence becoming a manual...


there are what you call door shocks on each side of your rear door that extend upwards when the door is opened.you maybe could look for shorter shocks to replace them with,but that can lead to a great deal of research and money. what i suggest you do is go to an auto parts store and purchase a pack of long bungee cords[rubber ones] attach one on each side of the door and fasten it to the back seat,then when you open the back door,the bungee cords will only let the door go up only so far.this may take a couple of trys to get the right length but worth the effort.done it myself so know exactly how you feel. good luck and thank you for choosing fixya.com
