Question

Visitor, Clayton, NC, January 29, 2011, 14:26

My driver door got really hard to open from the ouside for awhile, I had to push in on the door while pulling the handle in order to open the door. Now the outside handle will not open the door at all. I am having to open it from the inside. Help - what can I do to fix this problem?????

    Looks like either the connecting link between the handle and the lock mechanism or the handle itself is broken. The door panel has to come off and the handle / lock mechanism needs to be inspected.
