I've got a small passenger door latch issue I'd like some input on.

Pulling the outside handle always results in window drop and door unlatching and opening.

From the inside handle however, it's "iffy". Probably half the time it operates correctly, but the other half....often the window doesn't drop and the door can't open or the window drops but the door doesn't fully unlatch and another attempt is needed.

It's not like it really bothers me, but SWMBO is getting a little disturbed by it. :D

From my research, and using the single window drop switch as an indication, I believe the issue must be in either the cable from the inside handle or the inside handle itself. My question is whether there is an adjustment that can be made to the cable or handle, whether anyone else has had similar issues, and if so, what did they find.

Always nice to have a WAG or two before taking something apart. :thumbsup:

Apparently I overthink problems.

I removed the escutcheon and lubricated the latch assembly without removing the door skin.

Surprisingly, it hasn't failed since.

I imagine eventually I'll need to adjust slack out of the cable from the inside handle.
