Thanks for asking!

That my friend is a VERY difficult question to answer! The problem being that if you have power door locks and/or power windows, you stand a good chance of damaging wires and linkage. It is much like picking a lock, where it is 99% a feel process. In my opinion you are better off to call AAA if you have it, or check your insurance policy, as most cover these expenses. If they do, just call a locksmith and they will come right out.

Best of luck!

Hello scott,

The vehicle is to new for me to be able to pull up a diagram of the internal parts inside of the door. I will opt out of this question so someone else can try to answer this for you.

I used to run a wrecker and I can tell you if you pull the inside door handle On most Ford products the door wil open.If you put the slim jim down (by the lock) the glass and lift up on it the vehicle will unlock.I get imost vehicles in under 30 seconds.Twenty bucks will get you in most vehicles with a AAA call.if you need more help ask.
