My driver door latch is jammed. The handle moves forward, but the plunger won't back out of the hole. Any suggestions?

this happened to me and others...take the cover off the latch and dissassmeble the unit. You will see that the latch is just a press fit design...now use your engineering skills and take a bolt and holt the pieces together and it will work much better....

Had the same problem with both latches. Original assembly was atrocious. I dismanlted them, honed all the parts until they fit without jamming, greased where needed and re-assembled.

Timely darn post, thanks guys! I was just remembering my old door latch problems and half-baked solutions when road tripping my new Phoenix yesterday and having latch trouble. I'm on it now. Thanks again!
