I think you maybe referring to the door locking slide to hold the door open so that it dosent keep closing ?

Yeah they stop working with age. If you're working on a car temporarily you can stick a flat head in there.. You can try prying it out a bit to help the door to stay open. If Ford don't sell new ones now I don't think there is much in ways to buy new ones; not aware of aftermarket.

update:I have observed and pulled one apart...I have found out that the yellow hard polywhatever it its ,isn't actually the problem part there is actually a rubbery something which acts to push the yellow bit out and act as dampening.Right now I'm expirementing with putting materials in behind such as cutting polyurethane sway bar rubbers no success as yet but lets y'all know when I find something
