To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
thank you very much. I bought this explorer with a door lock that didn't work, but didn't think anything of it til the battery went down. 1st time I shorted the starter to open it electrically, battery was alive but just barely. 2nd time battery was so far gone it showed as dead so I used aaa. now I can unlock it whether it has a battery or not. linkage was there just not connected. note to all, there are 2 kinds of locks for '04 explorer ending and beginning in 02/04. one is half moon and the other is butterfly. best to get 1 of each. at least the e-clips are the same.
I have a 2000 Isuzu Rodeo and the door would not open from the inside. I took the door panel off to check the lock rod and everything seemed to be fine, until I saw a small clip that held the roof in place was broken. That clip held the rod in place and provided enough tension to pull the door latch open. Since my Rodeo is 20 years old, no place makes the clip that broke. I found this pack for $5 and thought I'd give it a shot. That clip included fits into the hole fine and holds the rod in place. It is a little loose and may eventually fail, but I don't expect to have this vehicle long enough to worry about it again.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that you could actually buy these door latch componets separately. Ford has made such an effort to cut your throat when trying to fix their disastrous door latch assemblies by charging $150+ per assembly, totaling EIGHT in a four-door truck. That's $1200 just in door latches! With a little time and effort, you can just about replace all the doors for that much money.
The yellow part Fit perfect for on my tailgate latch fix on my 2001 ford ranger 3.0l xlt. Get two kits and replace both of them while you're in there, literally 10 min fix. Put a little grease on the mechanism also for smooth operation and your good to go.
This is pretty much the only door lock rod of this type available without buying a whole door lock assembly. I had to buy a pair of needle tools to sand down the mount in order to fit my specific car door. But I knew this ahead of time. Thank you for making this product available! Five Stars for the quality and price.
