Hi Guys!

The interior door release handle opens the door just fine but doesn't return to it's lowered, closed position like it should. The door won't latch properly until I lower the handle manually. I need advice on what part or spring needs attention.

Thanks very much!

You need one of these.....Its called a door release mechanism.....Most likely the spring is broken on yours....Not allowing the handle to return to the rest position.

Rich, the whole mechanism needs to be replaced even though the external door handle works OK?

The part that David showed is all that needs to be replaced. The outside handle operates the latch mechanism. As mentioned, the spring is probably broken, but it's part of the inside handle mechanism.

David, can the spring be replaced or does the whole piece need to be replaced?

Thanks very much!

Need to replace the whole part.....It does not come apart for spring replacement....Nor do they sell the springs.
