There really aren't any directions. If it is the door latch remove the door panel. Remove the rod that connects it to the door latch assembly. Remove the nuts that attach the latch to the door and reverse the process to finish. You may have to raise or lower the window to get access to the door latch. Good luck.

Rear driver door will not latch when 20 degrees or colder


There is usually a thin film of grease inside the latch assembly for lubrication. The grease may be too heavy when cold and cause the latch assembly to stick. You can try additional lubrication with WD 40 spraying in the latch assembly. This will also thin out any heavy grease within the latch assembly and loosen things up

How do I remove the passenger door latch assembly?


Buy a manual like haynes or chiltons for your model or go online and see if you can find one on download. This is a bit of a fiddly job that requires some experience so find a neighbour who know whats what or home mechanic type but a manual would be a good long term buy for any future faults.

I HAVE A 2009 FORD ESCAPE AND THE REAR HATCH WILL NOT OPEN FUSE IS GOOD. PLEASE HELP ME.


You need a latch assembly. Common problem. Open the hatch glass. Then try and lift up and push forward the plastic door panel around the spot where the glass closes into the hatch. It should give you enough room to see the latch assembly inside. Use a flashlight to look for the latch which is in the center bottom of the hatch. There is a white plastic lever. Push or pull on the lever and the door should open. The latch has a electric actuator that goes bad. Only replaced as a latch assembly.

I have a 2005 mazda mpv the pasanger side sliding door does not latch it mooves freely it is manual


You need to see if the latch bar ( curved metal piece that holds onto the strike bolt ) is in the closed position - if so, you'll need a helper to open it. You should also check to see if it is lubricated, which can keep it from latching.
When you look into the latch assembly, you should see a clear pathway for the striker bolt to enter the assembly. If there is a bar ( or hook ) blocking it, then you can use a flat blade screwdriver to move it to the open position. Insert the screwdriver into the latch assembly where you can pry on the inside of the hook, using the body of the door for leverage. position your screwdriver and then have your helper pull ( or push ) the outside door button / handle as you apply a small amount of pressure to the inside of the hook - the hook should easily slide out of the way. If it is hard to move, you'll need to spray some lubrication into the latch assembly. You can buy a can of white lithium grease in a spray can that will do the job.
There is a certain angle you'll need to pry in to get the latch to open - you may need to place the blade of the screwdriver through the hook and on the outside edge of the door or outside edge of the latch assembly, then gently push the screwdriver handle towards the outside of the van as the handle/ button is used.
Hope this helps!!

Adjust hood


Loosen the hood latch mounting bolts- you should then be able to move the latch assembly up or down. If you move it down the hood will latch closer to the bumper. Hope this helps

The latch in the middle of the tailgate is (or was) connected to the two latched on both ends of the tailgate that held the tail gate closed. Over the years, the two wires have become detached from the two...


You have to remove the handle assembly and the latches. Working through the hole where the handle is, work the throught the edge of the tailgate and fasten to the latch assembly, then install the latch assembly. Once both latch assemblies are connected, reintall the handle assembly.

Lift gate wont open


OK, this minor collision may have shifted the actual clip and latch assembly. You may have to totally disassemble the latch assembly to release this lift gate.

Any kind of major or minor shifting of the lift gate lock latch assembly can cause misalignment that will jam this delicate precise locking mechanism.
