Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.I will try my best to help you with your question.
Below is a diagram of the cables.
Check the end of the cable. There should be a slot in the end of the plastic cable. This slot clips the cable into the latch. It it is broken loose of missing the latch assembly will have to be replaced to get the cable.
the diagram is too small to see exact hook up. i'm looking at full screen but just not a big enough image.
already have clicked on image but still tooo small to see clearly
Let me see if I can make it bigger.
still can't see the latch end that you don't show. there is a great close-up of view A but the other end is the problem and i need a close up of that connection.
Is there a notch in the cable line in view "A". If not, you will have to replace the latch to get the replacement cable. Ford only sells the cable with the latch.
sorry sir but what do you mean by "notch" ?
I circled it in the diagram below.
There is a slot in the black plastic cable that will fit onto the latch as in view A.
If there is no slot or there are 2 black plastic pieces at the end of the black plastic sleeve, the latch assembly will have to be replaced.
The most common cause of the cables coming off is the plastic sleeve breaks where it clips onto to the latch.
