Rear door won't lock!

I just noticed a couple days ago that the rear door on our Excursion won't lock. The cargo door that is. Not even with the key, much less the auto locks.
Anyone had this problem before and fixed it?
It will be a week before I get to it, hopefully it's something obvious and cheap!! And nobody steals it before then.

You take it a[art and spray silicone on it. For some reasom over ti,e the mechanism gets kind of locked up. I asuume the key is not working either. I had this happen and spraying silicone or graphite on the mechanism cured it. I think you have to take the side panels off first. They just pull off I believe.

I had same problem a couple months ago. The main problem is as Beast said but silicone did not cure it. I used a never-seez compound similar to graphite on the mechanism after I removed it. If spray will work it is much simpler than R&R though.

However, I also had to replace the actuator as the mech being frozen broke the pin off. Replacing the re-assembled unit was the worse part.

Rear Door Hatch Lock mechanism & Lock actuator (9/2/09)
Door Lock Actuator 6L3Z25218A43AA my cost $56.18

The actual metal mechanism below should NOT be needed but:
lock mechanism 4C7Z7843170AA $ 42.15 (superceded by new num. 5C7Z7843170B.) According to Ford Parts Dept. in Orl. FL.

I took over an hour mostly due to getting the stupic thing to fit back into the hole and back into place. I am sure that somehow Ford purposely put just enough protruding metal to make life difficult there. At least I felt like they did.

Since then all works fine. Most people do not check to see if their latch is locking, My friend accidently opened one parked next to mine in a parking lot that was supposedly locked too. Need to check those hatches, , ,

Hey, thanks for the (thorough) replies!! Doesn't sound too bad, hopefully some graphite will do the trick. I'll post again with my results when it's done.

This happened to me four years ago so I cant remember exactly how it looks in there but I do remember the locking arm had slid out of place because something broke loose and I had to nylon tie lock accuator back in place and haven't had a problem sense. But you do have to get to the back side of the handle by pulling off interior cover and it was real obvious what the trouble was. I'm sure it was caused by slamming the rear lift window down all the time. I realized my rear hatch wasn't locking in the shopping mall parking lot at christmas time 05. Who knows what might have happened if I didn't cut my shopping trip short because I noticed it.
