disco - Making Rear Drivers Side Door Easier To Open
You really had to yank on the door handle from the outside to get the door to open. After living with it for a year I finally took the time to investigate. Turns out the door lock/lever assembly has a pivot point you can use to take up slack then tighten a screw. This allows you to adjust the movement on the door handle so it starts opening as soon as you open the handle. The screw had come loose. As a result, the handle was almost all the way out before it even started operating internal lever. I added some locktite and tightened the screw down again. Now the door is once again easy to open.
