I am trying to replace the rear latch plate on a 2000 e350 super duty van . Not sure how the black license plat comes out

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your Ford E-350 Super Duty. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

Sorry for my misunderstanding, but what do you mean by "latch plate"? Do you just mean the thing that the license plate mounts to in the door?

the black plate that holds the license plate and has the handle and lock

Sorry I am unavailable for a call right now. Do you have door panel off the inside of the door?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It’s a refrigerated. Van and the rear door can not be accessed from the inside. It opens from inside there is metal plating inside.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
We’re you able to receive the picture I sent

Oh. I see it. The only way is to go through the inside of the door.

Ask Your Own Ford Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It’s a refrigerated van and inside is sealed . The door works from the inside .
