Door handle not engaging

Post by Kalani940 » Sat May 25, 2019 5:48 pm

1995 940
I changed my driver side handle because it broke and it worked for awhile but now my handle won't engage. I have to jerk it a bunch of times for it to open. I bent the rod that hooks onto the handle to give it less throw and that worked for awhile but then it started doing it again. :oops:
Is it the shitty aftermarket handle or is it something else?

Thank you very much! 🙏🏻 Ill give it a try, hopefully it was just a shitty aftermarket handle and not the actuator or something
