If your 2002 Ford F150’s rear door latch is stuck, this guide will demonstrate how to replace that latch.

There are a lot of small and fragile pieces within the door mechanism, be cautious not to damage or drop anything within the door. Any damage caused to the inner mechanisms of the door could potentially create a more expensive problem to your rear door.

Be careful when removing the door cover to not pull too hard. There are plastic door clips on the other side that could break with enough stress enacted upon it.

  1. Remove the Phillips #2 screws holding the window actuator mount to the door. Place a wedge (or your finger) under the top part of the door cover. The cover will pull right off when all the clips are unlatched. Be careful not to pull too hard, as the plastic could crack.
