Outside Door Handle Innoperative

Ive searched the forums and have found a few topics kind of relating to this but none of them seemed to have been solved. I have a 78 350se and both outside door handles on the left side do not work. They both pull out just do not seem to have enough throw when you look at the mechanism inside the door. Both inside handles work fine and I either have to crawl through from the passenger side to open the driver door or leave the window down if its in the garage to reach in the window. Is there an adjustment that can be made on these or are they just in need of replacement parts?

Hi, If you remove the handle from the door (2 allen's) ,and operate the mechanism,you can see a slotted screwdriver adjustment for "throw"
The door panel has to come off for (easy)handle removal,Good Luck,kdm
