well took apart. cable had snapped at the door handle lever. I see how it comes off at the lever, but I can't see what is going on at the other end. do I have to take the 3 phillips screws out that hold the latching assy.

Yes and you need to get the baggy off of it, to access the assembly..

You'll have to turn the cable, to where the end piece will go in the hole. Once it's in the hole, straightening it will lock it in. I'm sorry I can't explain it better...

FWIW, the cure for this very common problem is a new cable. Napa, Dorman have them available at your Local Parts store.

Dorman part number 924-300

If Your replacing inside door release handles, 99% of the time, its a stretched cable that is at fault.
When the cable stretches, You over compensate by pulling the handle harder, without even realizing Your doing it.

fonefiddy,

Door cable fix. Free

My cable was stretched so before spending money I did a freebie. Should last. I removed cable from inside handle, twisted it in direction of braids taking out slack, and put it back in handle. Works like new.

Had the same problem with my F150. Door would not always open from the inside. I replaced the hinge pins and the bushings. It help but still had problems. I looked at the cables on the door. Noticed the plastic piece was kind of chewed up from years of use.
I replaced them with this. It worked great afterward. I even did the other side.
