Do you have a 4 door crew cab or the 4 door super cab with the quarter rear doors?

bottom latch releases top does not

Sorry, been at work turning wrenches at my dealership.

To open the doors, you will have to remove the cables from the center latch where the release handle is and pull the metal cable ball end to open the latch. The plastic sleeve that covers the cable breaks apart and allows the cable to hang loose.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

MollyUSA

I needed help with my car on Saturday morning....got a response in 5 minutes, and it was the perfect solution. Thanks again to your service.

Jason V.Kirkland, WA

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.

BRNew Jersey

I would (and have) recommend your site to others I was quite satisfied with the quality of the information received, the professional with whom I interacted, and the quick response time. Thanks, and be sure that I'll be back whenever I need a question answered in a hurry.
