Subject: FTE Small - '92 Aerostar Front Doors and Locks

My front door locks have gotten stiff; the power mechanism no longer
works. From the way that they got progressively unreliable, I assume
that the lubricant has hardened and that I must re-lubricate the
mechanism. As usual, Haynes and Alldata/Popular Mechanics have let me
down: they either don't cover the door locks adequately, or provide an
illustration so blurry as to be worthless (shame on you Alldata!).

Help me out, please!

1. How can I safely remove the door inside panels? What tools do I
need? Are there any "gotchas" or is the job straightforward?

2. How do I get at the stiff lock and/or latch mechanisms?

3. What lubricants are best for this?

Thanks all.

Richard

Hi!
I can help you with the inside panels. Make sure the windows are up.
1. Remove the switch console for power windows&power door locks (2
screws);pull it out.
2. Unscrew the contact plate from the switches - 4 or 5 screws
3. Look into the hole where the switches were - there's another
screw holding the panel. Make sure it won't fall into the door after =
it's
loose.
4. Pull the panel, start at bottom. There's just plastic clips
holding it. Feel the holding points of the clips and pull hard only =
there.
The panel may otherwise get bent.=20
5. At the top, the panel is held by the window frame. Just lift.
Disconnect power mirror switch. Voil=E0!

After carefully removing that crappy inner lining, you should be
able to see the lock. I never really looked at it but I recall good =
access
when I changed the handle.

So the job is straightforward, all you need is a phillips
screwdriver (short). When reinstalling the panel, remove the leftover =
clips
from the door and put them on the panel.=20

Good luck!
