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...
