    Default Drivers door handle sticking up when opening.

    When i open my drivers side front door the handle sticks up at the pulled-out position. The kinetics of closing the door drop the handle, but its still annoying. It doesnt feel like its got grit or goo... its like a click type of resistance... any ideas?

    You can adjust the trim plate to fix this. Look in Bentley's on how to pop the exterior cover plate off. It can be adjusted up a bit so it won't rub on the handle.

    Easy fix!

    Thanks, on demand values? Very few things are torque critical... and those that are, I am prepared for.
