Slider Lock 'Sticking'

Slider Lock 'Sticking'

Postby BillyJoBob [OP] » February 6th 2020, 6:04pm

98 Safari

I did a search for my prob and didn't find one

Slider lock doesn't always want to unlatch for door to open, been getting progressively worse. Have to pull hard on door handle and it still won't release right away but eventually does.

I have tried to pry left side of door away from body and that doesn't help

Can anyone tell me what I need to do to cure?

As always, TIA

Replace the door handle, lube up the latch and the rods. You can also adjust them if you think your handle is fine.

LUBRICATION!

Zow, what a concept for a motor vehicle.

Siliconed everything and works like a charm, handle was OK

Thanks
