Sticking rear door handles - 147 5 door
I've now had both rear handles on our 147 stop working properly. From the outset the nearside rear wouldn't reset after being pulled and was always left sticking out meaning the door wouldn't catch and lock upon shutting. Earlier this year the offside started to do the same.
I eventually got around to trying to fix the nearside and have now done the same for the offside.
Simple enough, unscrew the three bolts holding the door handle, lift out the mechanism and spray some lube on the spring. Give the handle a few pulls until it free's up, then remount the mechanism and screw the bolts back in.
