Can't open the door from the inside but the outside work great.
hadles are crap have replaced with after market and omc and the last omc lasted 1yr.
outside and inside door handles are breaking, replaced driver side inside and outside handle then passenger side started getting loose. Now need to replace driver side door lock and passanger side outside handle
Plan on replacing often, and regularly.
Mine is a crew-cab. Front inside door handle (drivers side) broke off, causing handle to fall down inside door, along with spring. Have to open window to use outside handle to open door. The rear door same side, will not close and lock at the jam. I Had to tie door closed, so I could use truck. Electric door locks work o.k. Thank you...
door locks dont work,and my trim for door handle is broken
Linkage from inside handle to latching mechanism is not working,
