You need to remove the interior door trim panel, shown here. Then inspect the handle rods/cable attached to the latch to see if they have just come off or to see if the handle is at fault, Use the latch removal steps shown here for a view of what it looks like inside.

Are you sure there is no cable connected to the interior door handle Are you sure I was given the correct year and model vehicle. Ford shows there is a cable connected to the handle and latch , see below.
Okay I understand now, earlier you said it was the the interior handle faulty when I asked which was non operational.
here is a picture from a recent file I sent you showing the door latch rod attached to the latch which goes to the exterior door handle.
I am pretty sure there is a spring in the back side of the handle to pull it tight to the body when not in use.
You need to see why the rod is not connected to the handle or latch.
