Default 2002 Ford Ranger XLT Stepside Off Road

Hi everyone. I am new to the forum. My mechanical experience involves classic triumph motorcycle repair/restoration and air cooled vw's

Two years ago my Dad passed away and i inherited his 1974 VW Sunbug and his 2002 Ranger XLT 4x4 - off road. 4.0L 6cyl.

The truck hasnt been driven much in the last two years and now i am finally getting on the road and dealing with numerous small issues.

My first issue was a code 46. I understand that it is the pretensioner on the drivers side and i have confirmed that it is bad connection...yet to be fixed

My exhaust parts are on order (arriving tomorrow)

ANNNND my rear doors are stuck shut!! annd the door ajar light is on

I have searched for a good fix..and i guess the only way to address this issue is to remove the interior rear door panels??

The doors appear to be stuck at the bottom latch.

I have been looking for decent tutorial or picts but havent found one yet.

If anyone has a good thread or could point me in the right direction..it would be a big help!

thank you in advance rr
