99 F250 extended cab back doors won't...

open. The passenger side stopped opening right after I purchased it a few months back (168K miles). I removed the door panels and reached my hand in feeling around. I know the latch releases are activated by cables but cannot figure out how they work. While feeling and pulling on the cables one became dislodged from its holder. The driver’s side stopped opening yesterday . Do the cables stretch, break, or what? Or are the holders the issue? Is there an illustration that shows how the cables are run and connected? Has anyone else had this issue?fficeffice" />>>

There is a small lever that sticks out that is pushed in when the front door is closed, preventing the small doors from opening. Is it possible that that lever is stuck in?

That was my first thought...they are extended out like they should be and I've tried to flick/hit them to ensure they've released whatever they're supposed to...but not sure if thats the issue or not.

Chances are it is just seized at the latch/striker. They're located at the top and bottom at the door. Assuming there is nothing broken, try spraying a healthy dose of PB Blaster (penetrating fluid) at the latches and let it sit overnight.

If I can get the doors open again, I'll do that. I just need to get them open.

Thanks for all of the replies...keep'em coming!

Mine did this too. Turns out the cables that release the latch broke near the handle. There are two of them one each for upper and lower latch. The housing is plastic and they broke at the end of the housing where they snap into the release mechanism. I haven't replaced them yet but need to as the other door just broke and it's a pain to load the kids up in there without the doors opend.
