98 ml320 Dr Side exterior door handle problem..

3931 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  43sqd
My 320 drivers side door will not open from the outside. Inside works fine. Outside handle has spring tension, but does not "grab or click" when I pull it open. I took off the interior panel but can't really see up behind the door frame at the location of the outside handle. I suspect that some part needs replacing. Would this be an actuator or something else. I need a proper name of the part so I can order it.

Any help would be appreciated.

Mine started doing this recently too. Try pushing your thumb against the door while pulling the handle out...just to make sure the handle is engaging fully.
