The sliding door on our 93 Aerostar has quit opening. I've pulled all the
interior trim off that side and can't see any latch mechanism, as it's
inside the metal panel of the door. I can see the threads of the latch bolt
coming through above the speaker. When I rotate the interior handle or pull
the exterior handle, there's a covered piece of metal rod that's visible
through one of the access holes which appears to push back some against
whatever's inside the door where the latch should be, but it doesn't open
the door. The door is not locked.
I'm looking for ideas to either get the door open or remove it so I can get
to the latch somehow.
Thanks in advance,
