1998 Eddie Bauer Expedition 4X4. Rear door (failed liftgate latch)
Posted in the Ford Expedition Forum
#1 May 18, 2012
The latches on both the window and the liftgate have failed. I cannot open the gate to access the failed latch cables. How can I get the door open? I have taken the inside pull strap off, but the opening behind that is approximately 1" wide - too small to work through. Can I remove the outside latch handle without destroying it? All suggestions are appreciated!! Thanks.

the cable has a ball on both ends of the lock cable and have two clips at each end of the cable the clips attach to the lock keeping the cable in line. most likely the clip has broken and the ball end has come out of the slot.

on the inside of the auto remove the upper molding then remove the lower molding the backing on the center of the door will pop loose around the cover remove the cover remove the liner and replace the cable. do not try to remove the handle form the out side of gate it won't come off with out heavy damage
