Rear doors will not open

Asked by Badbobaz Mar 05, 2020 at 12:06 PM about the 1963 Mercury Monterey

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Just bought a stock 63 Monterey that had a bad trunk seal, opened the trunk
and condensation was everywhere.  No visible rust and not sure if it is related
to the two rear doors will not open.  The seller said they opened last summer
but now they will not.  Not sure where to start, help? Thanks.

You'll need to remove the interior door panels and inspect the rods that go from the interior door handle, exterior door handle, and lock button to the latch assembly. They may be disconnected or the latches themselves may be rusted and jammed. Hope that helps! Jim

Thanks for the quick reply! I'll have the car on Saturday and will take a look.
