moisture in it, and it corrodes. This is a fairly simple fix. I would like
to Thank the guys over at http://www.explorerforum.com with the threads

ford rear door wont open part 1 of 3
This is a 99 ford 250 superduty with the suicide doors. People are telling
me that it works on other models as well. The cable sheath ends break easy.
The top cable broke in both doors within a week of each other. Each
latch/cable assembly cost about $180. That is $720 to fix all the cables.
I fixed each one for about $5 each. This video is only for the upper
cable. If you like this, go to bradleyusa.com and donate. Thanks.
