Default van doors

one of my van (ford e-250) doors does not open from the outside, which totally sucks. i was wondering if anyone knows of a company that sells the cables for the latches - i have had poor luck finding them on the internet

That's a pretty common part to fail. I'm nearly certain that the dealership parts counter guy won't even need to look it up. I bet he can walk right back into the racks and put his hands on one.

If there was one factory-installed on your van, there will be one factory-installed on all the others. I can't imagine every other van on the road and at the junkyard mysteriously never had them installed.

Just go to a junk yard and buy a whole door maybe? Sometimes its cheaper and much easier to swap than a lock/cable mechanism.

Local dealer or JCWhitney. You'd be amazed at what JCW still carries.
