Eh there folks, I have a really stupid question for you all, I currently own a '96 Explorer XLT 4-door and previously owned a '95 XLT 4-door, now my question is about the child safety locks on the rear doors. On both trucks, I tried to disengage the safety locks just like it is shown on the side of the door without any success, is there a differant way of disengaging them or am I simply doing something wrong?

They can be pretty hard to move sometimes. A pair of needle-nose pliers was required to convince mine to change positions.

Well Donner, the only that the doors can be opened is from the outside, they can't be opened from the inside at all.

m4dc0w & cahunterman, I will give your ideas a try. I know the ignition key is able to adjust the child lock, but any advice will be put to good use.
