Here's a thread explaining how to grab cable with needle nose pliers to free latch so door will open. Hope it helps. http://www.justanswer.com/ford/68n1t-ford-f150-ext-cab-xlt-2001-ford- f150-extended-cab.html

If you are cutting and pasting the links look for spaces in the link after you paste them. Delete any spaces found in the links and they should work. If not let me know and I will pm some to you. In the last link the space is between (? v). Should be (?v)
