Question about 2007 Ford Fusion I4 SEL Sedan

1 Answer

Rear door will not open on my 2007 Ford Fusion. It won't open from the inside or the outside. I removed the interior door panel and can look inside the door. I can see the mechanism for the outside door handle is still attached and is not broken. The cable attached to the interior door handle is attached and not broken. I cannot remove the latch mechanism because the bolts are installed in the door jam. Any tips?

    The only way I could get it open was to break the plastic cover off the latch mechanism piece by piece until the actual mechanism was revealed, then I actuated the lock level manually using a screw driver and opened using the outside handle.

Door handle repair for Ford fusion


The door handle will not allow unlocking from the inside. This is a common problem with the Ford Fusion 2007 to 2012 and other cars. A cheap piece of plastic breaks that connects the lock lever with the door handle. You can roll down the window and unlock from the outside or hold both levers together and pull open from the inside. This is a very simple repair. Go to any of many web sites for auto parts and buy a replacement. I bought a Dorman 81702 Ford/Lincoln/Mercury Interior Front Driver Side Replacement Door Handle. I popped off the lid that covers a hidden screw inside the recess of the door handle. You have to use a torque bit to unscrew the screw. I then unscrewed the torque screw holding the upper part of the door panel that is opposite the door hinge. The upper part of the door panel can be be carefully pulled away with moderate pressure allowing access to the door handle mechanism. One more bolt holds the door handle part in place. Pull out the broken door handle part, remove the locking cable and put in the new part. Reverse the process to finish up. The whole process took about 10 minutes.

Either the linkage connected to the handle has come off, or the piece on the handle inside has broken. You will need to remove the panel from the door and repair or replace the handle.

It sounds like the connecting rod popped out of its plastic connector. Pull the door panel off and check both ends of the rod. It must be unhooked at one end or the other.

Either the interior door handle or the cable inside the door is broken. You'll need to remove the door panel and look to see what is damaged.
