Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental

1 Answer

I broke the drivers side door handle this winter. I called Hoffman ford dealers, and they said they no longer make them. Is it necessary to have that exact handle, because of the electronic system or can we install one without that feature? Where can we get that handle and does it have to be done by a ford dealer?

You are in luck, junkyards are full of these things as when the air suspensions die they are scrapped. Call the dealer again, or drop by, and get the part number then ask them to see how many years that part number fits. Then find your local junkyards, or auto recyclers as they are now called, in the phone book and call them until you find one which has a Lincoln of the year you need. Go out plop down a few bucks and buy the part. I would take it to an auto glass shop as they are good at pulling doors apart and putting them back together without collateral damage. An auto glass shop or a general body shop is where I would take a job like this as opposed to a dealer.

I need written instructions on how to replace a outside driver side door handle for an 06 ford focus


Close/wind up the window. Remove the inside door panel. Be careful with power window switch and door speaker wiring connectors. Disconnect them before pulling the door panel away. Remove any plastic covers that may be glued to the door. Have a look at the door handle from inside the door. You will have some idea as to how to remove it. Usually door handles are secured by screws from the inside. Locate and remove them. Remove linkages to the door handle then pull handle form outside.

2000 ford f 150 supercab back door on drivers side will not open


The cable runs from the latch to the handle, it sounds like the cable broke off one end or fell off,

this truck uses cables instead of metal rods to open the latch, remove the door panel and see if the cable fell off handle area or latch,,
the cable operates the inside door handle and sometimes the outside handle but very rare that it operates the out side handle to open door.
