Re: Trouble driver door lock (selenoid?)

Could be several things- I have seen where a spring pops off the actual outside handle- therefore causing the door handle not to return to original position. This will cause the Power locks not to bump up. It can also be the door lock solenoid. Check the handle by returning it completely to down position and see it that works- if so- replace the handle. Otherwise it may be a lock solenoid. There are several fixes for this listed on this site.

Re: Trouble driver door lock (selenoid?)

Yikes- your not going to like this. According to the Ford Manual- they claim "drill out the rivet". It takes an extra-heavy duty rivet gun to put this back. I read a post somewhere on this site that claims you can remove it with just a nut on the actuator. I cannot verify this. If you need the exact procedure- I can post the PDF from the Ford CD.
