Use the large end of the Slide Lock Z-Tool™ car opening tool and a wedge to unlock the front passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting the wedge to relieve gasket pressure. Slide the tool into the door cavity about five to six inches with the tip facing forward. Rotate the car-opening tool counterclockwise until it slides under the vertical linkage rod. Carefully lift the linkage rod to unlock the door locking mechanism.
Use the Tech-Train Productions TT-1017 car-opening tool and a wedge to unlock the front passenger door locking mechanism. Begin by inserting the wedge forward of the vertical locking button. Carefully insert the TT-1017 tool into the opening between the wedge and the locking button with the tip pointing towards the rear of the vehicle. Carefully lower the tool approximately four inches. In this position, rotate the tool clockwise until it contacts the vertical linkage rod. The locking button will move slightly when contacted. Twist the tool to bind the rod and lift to unlock the door locking mechanism.
The direction to rotate the 2003-up Expedition/Navigator driver’s door lock plug to the unlocked position is counterclockwise. There is no passenger door lock.
