Default that bottom back door latch

My passenger back door has been froze shut since ive had this truck. I tried lube and kicking pulling pushing. then pulled the panel off and found that the latch is so rusted up i cant get it apart or figure out how to hack it. the only thing i can think of is to cut the striker to get the door open and take the latch out, but i cant find a latch or striker any where not even ebay. thanks

yeah, pita! mine were the same way. I picked up a pair from a member here for $50. There about $50 each to buy them new. Mine were already forced open/broke open so I cant help you on how to get them open.

i'll have to look at mine. It seems like there is a rubber plug on the side of the door, perhaps that would gain proper access to open it....???

I have an extra latch if you need it. The strikers are common and can be found on explorers, I believe the identical ones we have can be found on the rear doors of the 4dr explorer, If not I will dig a striker up for you when I get to the yard

how much are you asking for your latch??

----------

I looked them up all i can find is hood, tailgate, and glove box latches.. I cant find a sigle striker. I found 1 on ebay for a ford explorer but its for the front door.. If you can give me a possible pic and a price you would sell a latch and a striker for including shipping ill buy it... let me know

----------

Ive seen this in threads they use wd40 or pb-blaster and a screwdriver to get it to latch and make the "door ajar" light go out... they say the grease dries up and it doesnt work properly.. hope this helps.....

Default Re: that bottom back door latch

ok , ive got the same problem , i have a 2001 ford ranger edge 4x4 with 2 extra cab doors in the backof the super cab, my drivers side rear door wont open from the bottom, meaning that it is not pulling the latch open at the bottom, it does from the top, but not from the bottom, therfore cannot open the door, can anyone please tell me if that ribber plug that is on the bottom of the door will gain access to the bottom latch? or do i have to remove the whole door panel and replace the whole door latch assembly ? i need to open my rear door, please help if you can, thank you. Grant Jordan.

----------

sorry rubber plug,
