standard problem; must replace the handle on the inside which entails drilling out rivets, etc. Easier to have a mechanic do it and the cost is around 150$... kind of worth it when you try to do it yourself. Let the problem go longer and the handle, itself, just lies there in a retarded fashion. Basically, the inside of the door latch has a piece of plastic that breaks off. Go figure. Build cheap ****; expect bad results.
This should have been made from a higher density material to offset this problem.

there is a metal bar inside that clips into the handle they come off all the time there is a plastic clip that hold the 2 together it most likely has fallen off and into the bottom of the door you can put it back together easily if clip cannot be found you can buy them at local parts store for a couple bucks..hope this helps

Take it to the buick dealer. As the daughter of a mechanic, it was a call I didn't want to make! The dealer installed two handles for me and painted them to match for under $100.00. Well worth the trip.

The panel pops off. There are cheap tools to help with this at your local AutoZone. You may be able to just pull them off, you will need new clips which are just a couple of dollars or else your panels will be loose when you put them on. There maybe a screw or 2 that will be hiding and you will find them as your taking the panel off, start at the bottom. As for your original problem I would say the linkage is binding up some where and needs a bit of grease. Hope this helps. Richard
