door linkage

94 single cab f150.

The door linkage keeps locking up on me and I can't pull the door handle. The handle moves a little but won't activate the latch. I had this happen once before and broke the handle off. I replaced the handle and it worked for a couple months and it's frozen again.

I read something about the older linkage being a rod style rather than a cable and I didn't know if these parts could be purchased new rather than digging around through old possibly worn out parts.

Any advice?

Bumping this. I had freed it up enough to use but the handle snapped off again. Something is seriously wrong and I don't know what to fix our replace.

It's not clear what you're asking. Are the parts available for the older style without a cable? Probably but they won't fit your truck. You have cable operated latches.

Actually bashby if he were to buy the latches, and all the rods he would be able to swap it over to it. If I were him I would go to the junkyard and buy the whole door from an 80-91 truck and take the guts from it and put it in his doors.

If I grab a whole door off a truck, it's $44 at the junk yard but if I take the time to disassemble there, it will be $10. I figure I can just rip the door panel off and use a sawzall to cut out the section of door I need and unbolt the good stuff.

I would buy new latches ( or very GOOD used ones) and NEW cables. The cables stretch over time, and the latches wear also, causing you to have to pull farther and farther until the handle hits its stop which breaks before the cable.

I'm going with the rod style that doesn't stretch. I'll make it work.

Please only do that if the door is dented to bad to be repaired or used or if it is rusted beyond repair. You don't know how many people go looking for nice straight doors in my area to find somebody decided to take a sawzall to the door to get something simple like a door latch.


To steel horse if he goes to the rod style instead of the cable style he would be replacing it with a much better designed deal.

Door cable

On most of them that uses the cables. The plastic end breaks off. Here is a good fix.

That looks like it would work but the link they provided is for 97-04. Will they work on my truck?

I may still be better off doing a rod conversion.
