FORD EXCURSION DOOR PROBLEM

2002 Ford Excursion • 160,000 miles

One of my door ajar switches is sticking causing the interior lights to remain on. The switch is integrated with each latch which is mounted inside each door.
1-How do I get the cargo door trim panels off without breaking plastic rivets and the trim itself?
2-What is a safe/recommended lubricant for the plunger on the switch?

Efore doing this, when you find the door, you have to replace the latch assembly.

Have a shop with a scanner tell you which door, then you replace the failed one.

Remove all the screws and either a good pull or on some lift it up then out.
