Note put the rubber boot on the drum first. Place the cable around the rubber boot. To make it easier to stretch the spring I secured one end of the cable by using a piece of picture frame wire thru the steel connector and attached this picture frame wire to the frame of the washer. There is a hole in the top of the frame at the front side of the machine which I threaded the wire thru. Place the spring on the other end and pull the spring with needle nose pliers. To allow you to get the hook onto the end of the spring thru the other loop on the cable I put the needle nose pliers behind the first coil of the spring leaving the hook on the spring fully available to hook onto the loop of the cable. Make sure that when you are pulling the cable that you pull the spring parallel to the floor and in line with the groove in the rubber boot where the cable goes. Otherwise the boot will be pulled off by the cable. Once the cable is on remove the picture frame wire carefully and the front plastic piece can be easily aligned with the tabs on the rubber boot and locked into place.

Does the key for the door the same for the trunk

The 96+ Taurus has the same key for the trunk, ignition and doors. If you cannot open the trunk you dont need another key. It's really that the lock cylinder is frozen up (not from temp, but lack of use).

The key pad will close the garage door but it will not open the garage door.

If the keypad is the only remote unit you have that has short range then it is failing. The lack of signal strength prevents the signal from reaching the receiver when the door is closed. A replacement is the only cure.

Passenger door lack will not click on to interior lack of truck... Door will not closestuck in one position... How do I replace... I am tried of repairs on this car could i replace this myself...

You should be able to push this back into position by hand, or by using a flathead screwdriver. If it is literally stuck, then I suggest you replace it as you had mentioned.

This is something you can do yourself. Once you have the new piece, take the door panel off. There should be one or two screws that hold this piece in from the outside.

Make sure you examine the inside configuration before removing so you'll know how to hook up the new one (is not difficult).

Hook the new one up, put into place, and insert the screw(s).

Make sure the latch is in the open position so it will catch when closing the door. Also, before shutting the door, after the new unit is inserted and tightened, (leave door panel off) - test both the inside and outside handles to make sure they are functional.

If so, gently close the door and test to see if it shuts and open properly. If so, put door panel back on and you're good to go. You should not have any issues with this. If for some reason you do, please do not hesitate to contact me further. These are fairly simple units, so there should be no issues. They just wear out over time and simply need replaced.

Thank you for choosing for your automotive questions and concerns.

Replace drivers door due to crash. old door had 3

You have to examine and compare the two doors. I am just guessing but I would bet that it is the power mirror that your new door is lacking.

Just follow the wiring into each door.

1. Power locks wires should run to a region near the latch mechanism.
2. Power Windows wires should run to somewhere in the middle of the door.
3. Power mirror should run almost straight up towards the mirror assembly.

If it is the power mirror assembly you should be able to transplant your old one provided that it is not damaged.

If it is power windows, adapting power windows will be much harder as the new door may or may not have the provisions for mounting the regulator, etc.

If it is power locks you may need to transplant the latch and actuator assembly along with its wiring.

Check to see that the switch is actully being activated when door is closed. I wiggled the door upward to notice the machine started working. I then wedged a piece wood or wooden pencil in the botton of the door crack and that caused the switch to activate.

Switch is okay but the door alignment needed to be fixed.
