GT Door handle
How on earth do you tighten it? My passenger door handle has worked itself loose, so I decided to have a bash at sorting it earlier. I need to replace the door check strap soon, so I used it as a dry run in taking the door apart, so i'd know what I was doing later.
(Thanks to TallPaul's guide btw, very clear to follow!)
Took the door panel off easily enough, but couldn't see any fixing to tighten. I was expecting it to be bolted to the outer skin, with some form of bracing to the edge. The only loose fixing (and it was VERY loose) was on the door edge. (Star driver needed, and it doesn't actually require the door panel to be removed, just a rubber cover moved out of the way)
Now the handle itself is secure, but the mechanism is too tight, so the handle remains 'open' when you pull it. I've tried white grease and a touch of WD40 but it's still tight.
Now either I slacken off the fixing on the door edge and the handle works easily, but rattles, or I tighten it up, it's secured well, but is too stiff.
Any help appreciated.
