Customer Question

I have a 1996 ford e-150 conversion van. the cables that open the main side door have broken where they attach to the levers. Is there a diagrahm that shows how they are attached and are there more parts to these cables, than just the cables. I can see where they attach on one end, but I can't see how they are attached on the other end.

would it be better to detach the locking mechanism in view A.

Expert:  Chuck replied 5 years ago.
I am trying to down load you a better pic from the parts manual that may give you some more detail. I'll try and post it in a few minutes.Had to log into the computer at work and email it to myself.
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
okay i'll wait for that. I can see where the inside door handles cable attaches on the top part in view a, but the cable for the outside handle I can't tell where that connects. I tried using a maintenance mirror, but there's not much room to move around.
Expert:  Chuck replied 5 years ago.

What I was trying didn't work.

 

 

See if this is what you need,this is for the outside door handle
