Loose door handle

Recommended Posts

New issue this morning.

My inner door handle doesnt jump back to place after i close the door, the window doesnt close all the way up after i close it.

i can push the handle up and it will close the window but the handle is really loose.

Is this a DIY fix, or do i need to replace something??

There is a tensioner spring behind the handle. Is just the handle loose or is it the entire handle assembly? The assembly is attached from the back side of the panel but is really secured to the door from the front side by the top screw from the grab handle and another just behind the pull


You'll need to pull the door skin off to figure out what is wrong. Here's a link on how to.... don't forget to disconnect the battery since you'll be working on/near the air bag. Also, follow the directions closely for removing the trim piece just above the door pull handle. It has a goofy clip that can easily break if you pull it off the wrong way. If you do, the part will still go back on and function normally but it will be a little bt loose (I broke one of mine the first time I pulled the door skin :rolleyes: ;) ) Finally, do not mess around too much w/ the bowden cable - connects to the release. It's somewhat of a delicate piece... not it so much but the routing and the end connectors.


If it's just the tensioner spring, you should be able to replace it w/ something from a local hardware store. Otherwise it's p/n 999.522.015.00.

Good luck :)
