The standard ford door latch is at the back of the sliding door at a 45 degree angle. the rod and bushing are worn and bent because of the angle. take the inside panel off. disconnect the rod from the operating handle by opening the orange latch on the plastic connector. if it breaks buy a new connector or get some 6mm nuts and pipe strap and a bolt with nuts and make a new connector. grab the operating rodconnected to the latch with vice grips and hammer 3 raps forward to get the rod back in the latch lever and push it back to release the latch. clean latch with wd and then spray with white grease. adjust the operating rod to give it enough travel to avoid doing all this again.
