Ford Explorer / Mercury Mountaineer Door Lock Repair


Figure 1 - The Problematic Door Lock

PROBLEM:
The door lock of your 1997-2001 Ford Explorer or Mercury Mountaineer is not operating properly (might work on other years and models too).  If your lock makes a clunking noise, however, it will not open the lock all the way (NOTE:  If it doesn't make a clunking noise from the remote, then you could have another problem not covered in these directions...the door lock must be making an attempt to unlock and you can hear it clicking when trying to open the door).  This usually starts happening occasionally, then it begins doing it all the time in which you cannot use your remote to unlock your door.  You will usually see the lock try to pop up when operating the unlock of your remote, however, it just won't come all the way up to unlock.

Sometimes, you might also have a problem where the door handle has become "floppy".  It has no tension holding it down in place.  This door lock repair will actually fix this problem too (though, you don't have to have a floppy door handle problem to have the problem with the door lock).

THIS REPAIR IS *NOT* FOR A STUCK REAR DOOR THAT WON'T OPEN...I have not addressed that issue...yet.  It is only for the FRONT doors...the rear doors of the 4 door models have a different mechanism and I have not documented a fix for those at this time.
 

TIME & SKILL REQUIRED:
About a 20 minute job....give yourself another 20 minutes if you are taking your time through the process.  If you can turn a screw driver, you should be able to complete this repair...there is some requirement to pop the door panel fasteners off, but other than that, anyone should be able to easily complete this repair with no mechanical knowledge or background.

TOOLS:

1. Phillips screwdriver
2. Flat blade screwdriver
3. Scrap cloth

For no additional charge, with your purchase of these instructions, you will be sent a part to complete the repair.  The part will be mailed to the shipping address supplied on your payment of these instructions.  It typically takes 3-5 business days to arrive via First Class US Postal Service.  The part is key to completing your repair in 8 minutes as shown in the video

These instructions include an 8 minute video that shows you the entire process...yes, it can be done in 8 minutes...but give yourself some extra time.

What People are Saying Regarding this Ford Door Lock Repair:

This is Why We Are Called "ANYONE Can Fix It"...
Holy smokes ... If I didn't do it myself, then I wouldn't have believed it. The thing that took me the longest was actually getting the door open so that I could take the panel off in the first place....Thanks again! I also replaced the console cover (see www.FixYourFord.com) -- my wife was looking at me sideways as I had the cover on the table, and then I showed it to her after I was done.

Duane,
I never thought this would work, but thought I would give it a try. I had it fixed in 30 minutes while my 11 month old was taking a nap. Thanks again, you probably saved me 300-500 bucks if I had taken it to a Ford dealership.
