Take the handle off the third door with the two screws and look up in there with a light and see if the arms are off or just whats going on.. Holler if you need more. Jerry

Take seat belt out of door jamb...
open the handle like you are trying to open the door, then get a screwdriver, and flip the latch back to open. It is stuck in the shut position. Hurry before it rains.

Hello, I think I know your problem and I can help. The rods are attached with little plastic fasteners that "swing away" to release the rods. I am sending you a picture of a typical fastener, if you look at it you will see a square channel with one side open. The open part is where you unsnap it. It's a tight squeeze but you can reach in and unsnap the connectors to free the latch, then just remove the bolts holding the latch to the door. When you go to put it all back together, I find it's easier to unbolt the outside door handle and push everything up and out the hole to give room to connect the fasteners. Once everything is connected just slip it all down and bolt the latch to the door and bolt the outside handle back. I hope this helps you with your problem, if not feel free to ask anything else that might help, good luck.

SOURCE: drivers side door wont shut
Before you go about changing the latch, make sure that the latch is fully open. This can be done by pulling the latch teeth inward towards the drivers seat with a screwdriver, while releasing the door opener handle at the same time. Often these large heavier doors become out of alignment at the hinge side causing the latch to close prematurely. If you are able to accomplish this task, lubricate the entire latch with white spray lithium grease. Keep in mind that the latch has two settings. The first is to catch the door(for safety) and the second is to secure the door. Thank you, Dana

The handle you replaced is a dual action. It should have two linkage arms. 1 coming down from the top & one coming up from the bottom. Sometimes the little plastic keepers that the rods snap into that hold them on to the handle become worn out. Hopefully replace the lower keeper. They may look ok, but it is a very small tolerance.
