Last night John and I decided it was time to try to open my seized rear passenger door....oh boy   After removing the door hinges and a little muscle later, she came off.  Boy was the mechanism dirty!  So we cleaned it and bolted it back on...then tried it out.  Things went good for the first two shuts but on the third one she seized back up   Apparently the star gear has a bad tooth...how would I go about getting a new one?  68 Fury III Sedan

Bone yards baby  Bone yards
 
Did you physically see a bad tooth?  They're hardened.  Pretty hard to break
 
Take the inner door panel off and lube it up inside.  Make sure the rod going from the handle to the latch isn't bent.   If the panel won't come off without the door open, take the door back off.  Don't screw up that interior

With the window rolled all the way down you can work the latch with a coat hanger or any type of rod.
(been there done that)
Personally,I would not have removed the door hinges.
There is a chance the door is not aligned properly which can cause the door to jam up.
Re-align the door and striker before condemning the latch.
I have spare rear door latches here in good working order if you need one..
PM me your address and I will send it.
Just buy me a beer when I come down again next summer.

I said take the door off again because he and Cup Cake already did.  The damage was done.  But if they get it back into the paint marks, they should be OK.  Nice things about sedans are they are more forgiving than a hard top.
 
I bet the latch is just dry.  Try running the window down and shooting some BP blaster in there with the tube.  Try not to get it on the felt track.  It won't be a diaster if you do.  Once it starts to work, open the door up and use some heavier oil, like 3 in 1
 
See this is what happens when you let a 2 coarse meal fix your car.  Lamb Chops and Potatoes for the main coarse and a cupcake for desert.

When we took the door off, we lubed the daylights out of it and had it free turning better than the rear driver's side door.  Two of the teeth were rusted pretty bad and about half the size of the others....  I don't want to take the door off again unless I'm replacing the star gear.

I finally got around to taking a pic of what I was trying to explain. 





I need these for the passenger rear door.
