Ford Taurus 2004 SES Door Removal

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have a Ford Taurus 2004 SES and the passenger front door is damaged and needs to be replaced.  I am looking for instructions to do so, specifically for the electrical connection disconnection and re-connection.  I have searched the internet looking for video on this and could not find it.

Best regards,

Mansour

Elect is the easy part as in the pic. Then hinges and bracket for the door hold open rod. I am sure it has a name.

Thank you for this great help.  I am attaching the picture from my car.  So here is the sequence I am going to do on my car and the car in the junk yard:

  1.  Remove the Cap on the top and open the bolt
  2. Pull Down the connector to disconnect

Two question I have. 

  1. Do I need to cut/remove the tie wrap (please see the picture)
  2. Is the passenger front door the same sequence?

Please also let me know the bolts etc. to remove to unhinge the door once the electric connection is disconnected.

Best regards,

Mansour

No need to mess with the tie wrap. The bolt is captive so you have to loosen the bolt and pull the connector down at the same time. Tie wrap must be cut to fix broken wires as in my pic. To replace the door, just pull the connector out and switch the door.

Thanks.

Please also comment on the bolts to be removed.  Based on what it looks like, I thought to unbolt 4 bolts that are bolting the hinge to the door and once the door is removed, to unbolt the hinges from the body as the bolts that are bolting the hinges to the body are not easy to access if the door is not removed.  If this is correct, I first unbolt the lower 2 and then the upper 2.  Also, if you have, please let me know the torque for each of the bolts as I am bolting the new door.

One question.  The connector (as shown in the attached) is different on the passenger side.  How can that be disconnected.  Thank you.

Thank you for the part number info.  I found the following video on youtube for Ford Taurus 2000.  The stage I am interested in is unplugging the electrical which this video only shows the boot removal:

I asked a mechanic and he told me that the plug needs to be unscrewed before being unplugged.  I would appreciate clarification on this.
