3. Remove rear window channel retaining bolt to allow access to door latch.

4. Position a block (screwdriver handle) between the latch and the door inner panel and snap the cable housing end out of slot (towards inner panel) on door latch assembly and disconnect cable at latch.
NOTE: Use care when removing cable housing to avoid bending of the latch. Discard cable.

5. Hook up new cable at latch and snap cable housing end into slot.

Affected Vehicles: 1992 Ranger, F-Series / Bronco / Medium Truck  Note that this is a safety recall, and any included vehicle will be repaired free, no matter how old it is, how long the owner waits to present it for repair, or how many times it has been sold.  Ford Motor Company has determined that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in certain 1992 model year F-Series trucks and chassis-cabs, Bronco and Ranger trucks.  Safety Defect: Water may enter the door latch release mechanisms on your truck and at sub-freezing temperatures it may freeze. If a latch release were to freeze, it could result in the door being difficult to open or not latching securely.  If not properly latched, a door could open unexpectedly if the driver or a passenger should jar or lean against the door. If not wearing a safety belt, an occupant could fall from the vehicle and be injured.  Locking the doors using the inside door lock button may reduce the chance that a door may open unexpectedly.  Even if the doors on your truck were previously repaired for frozen latches, Ford wants to install new cable assemblies, and recommends that you follow the instructions in this Recall Letter.  Reminder: Drivers and passengers should always wear their seat belts when the vehicle is in motion!  Repairs: At no cost to you, your dealer will install revised design door latch release cable assemblies for both front doors. These cables will also correct difficult to open doors during or after cold weather exposure.  How Long Will It Take: The time needed to repair you truck is less than two hours. However, due to service scheduling times, your dealer may need your vehicle for one full working day.  Call your dealer without delay. Ask for a service date and if parts are in stock.  If your dealer does not have the parts in stock, they can be ordered before scheduling your service date. Parts would be expected to arrive within a week.  When you bring your truck in, give the dealer this letter.  If you misplace this letter, your dealer will still do the work, free of charge  If the dealer doesn't make the repair promptly and without charge, you may contact the Ford Customer Assistance Center, 300 Renaissance Center, P. O. Box 433360, Detroit, Michigan 48243. You also may send a complaint to the Administrator, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 400 Seventh Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20590 or call the toll free Auto Safety Hotline 1-800-424-9393 (Washington D.C. area residents may call 366-0123).
