yes another rear door problem....sorta

for the past few days, it has drove me nuts. sometimes when i go around a turn, and some of my body weight leans on the drivers door, the dome light, and door ajar goes off. knowing there is a problem with this from ford, i shook it off, until i went to shut the door, and noticed the bottom of the rear door move. long story short, the bottom latch is not holding. both cables at the handle are not broken. is there a adjustment for them on the inside, or is the latch just pooched, and need to buy a 100 some odd dollar dealer only part.

did you try to lube it up at all? on my green 4 door the latch was rusty and would not hold onto the hook but i sprayed it for a week with pb blaster and it functioned normally

Yes, actualy I did start to spray it tonight, as I also found most guys have had luck doing that. The latch from the outside isn't rusty at all, but hey, what can it hurt.
