    Ok i just picked up my 06 explorer today, its not in great shape but its only a winter car so its not a big deal. One thing i really need to fix tho is that the only way to open the drivers side door is to open the window and use the handle on the outside cause the inside one doest work. Anybody have any idea how to fix that?

    On the blach handle on the inside of the door, when you pull the handle, it is geared to another lever which pulls on the rod. The same thing happened to me (wife pulled too hard on the handle and stripped out the plastic gear)

    Go to a junk yard and get another one, I believe you can use either a front or back handle.

    I'm guessing you meant NINETY-6 x, and not OH-6. Buy a NEW drivers door pull from ford ($15), b/c it's only gonna happen again with a used part. Take the door panel off, unscrew the door pull and remove from rod assembly. Install new pull on rod. Screw back on and put it all back together.

    Before all that - got to the nearest parts store and buy a Haynes manual. The best $15-20 you'll ever spend. Well, next best to the $30 to become elite here!!!
