K well i'm on my 3rd set of door handles now... finally got metal ones for the last install. went to get back in my car after getting gas, and it's like a limp noodle. didn't snap or anything opening the door before, not sure what happened... but it's dark and cold out, lots of snow, i can't deal with this right now. just mad . i've been inside the door several times before, installed handles 3 times now, and a window, but can't remember for the life of me how the setup works. i doubt the handle is broken since it's metal, took a quick look (but its dark out), didn't see anything... can the linkage just slip off or something like that?? i know the handles on these cars are notoriously bad, but why am i having so many issues!!!! thought the metal handles would solve this.
