1999 Dodge Ram Van 2500 142,589 mi,
Flat coiled spring in the latch broke, door won't latch.
2000 Dodge Ram Van 2500 18,500 mi,
Yes the mileage is correct. Just picked it up from a little old lady... Seriously. The latch is very hard to fully execute and it's also difficult to close the door all the way. I removed the cover on the front of the door but it sounds like it's coming from the rear. Thanks
