What tools do I need to change the driver door on a 93 ford explorer?

Asked by Dec 09, 2013 at 03:18 PM about the 1993 Ford Explorer 4 Dr XL 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The driver door on my 93 Explorer has been bent before - stepmom didn't put it in park
all the way so it got bent - but we wedged back into a working position - but now,
something happened and it just will not latch anymore - despite all the bending that's
fixed it so we're figuring on just replacing it.
The problem is, the new door's about 2 hours away from the car so I'd like to know
what tools I'm gonna need to pop the shitty one off and the new one on before the trip
is made. It currently has power windows but none of them work so I don't care about
hooking them up - I just need the doors swapped.

I appreciate the help - it's damn cold out there.

Set of socket wrenches to remove the two hinges should do in to get the door off the vehicle. BUT. you have to remove the inside door panel first, remove the electrical connections, feed the wire through the door and out the hole adjacent to the pillar. Or, you can cut the wires off the donar vehicle and HOPE stepmom didn't mess something up when she backed up.
