there is a retaining nut or clip on the back of the lock that holds it in place. remove the door panel and see what is broke or if the nut has loosened,and fell off. check the bottom of the door. It may be there waiting there to be found. hope it helps. duboff

the answer to your stuck key problem is call a locksmith any reasonably good locksmith should be able to remove repair or replace your lock and keep the key so it matchs the other locks on the carWhen you get the doors open, take the door panel off (take out the bolts for the handle and the panel just pulls off) with the window up, you can take the clip off the back of the lock, disconnect the rod at the lock and pull the lock out. then take it to the locksmith(see answer above)ANSWERYOU COULD GO TO A LOCK SMITH BUT THERES A POSSIBILTE THAT ITS YOUR DOOR IF ITS YOUR DOOR YOU HAVE TO GO TO A FORD DEALER AND GET A REPAIR

What is the button that locks a car from the inside called?

I think you're referring to a 'kiddy lock' which is located on the end of the door as opposed to the outside or inside of the door or the end where the hinges are. On my 1998 Mondeo Ghia, there is no button to activate the kiddy lock. There is however, a slot for the car key to fit in, where you simply insert the key and turn whichever way works to lock & unlock the kiddy lock device.
