Re: LOOSE DOOR HANDLE
Remove 4 screws(Torx 20) along both sides of inner door liner. Be sure to have a good grip on the outer door as it will fall off. I always start at the top of the door and work down. You may have 2 blocks fall off, they go on the hinge and fit on only 1 way with the slot on the hinge.

There is two allen set screws for each hand at both end and they are facing each other on the handles.. Remove the allen screw and put a very minute speck of jelly on each screw---small-small amount. This will kept the set screws from loosen up. GB...stewbison
I don't remember having a long nylon screw in this. Open the hatch, remove the sheet metal screws that work with the push pins to secure the interior cover. After removing those screws carefully pry the push pins up till they come free from the hatch. This will give you access to the lock assembly. remove the "C" clamp that holds the lock in place after disconnecting any rods that maybe attached to it and the lock should come out toward the outside of the vehicle. There should be no reason to remove the molding.
1) Remove the plug inside the interior armrest and remove phillips
2) Remove armrest and two screws that hold door panel to door frame.
3) Pop the outer cover off the interior door handle.
4) Remove the interior
lock knob and remove door panel by popping out tabs connected to door frame and lifting up off of window ledge.
5) Remove the two nuts
holding exterior handle in place.
6) Disconnect the L shaped linkage from
the handle. The trick to getting the L shaped linkage into the
new handle is to feed L shaped metal pole through hole in door where
exterior handle was, leaving the lower end of this linkage in its slot.
7) Feed the end of L shaped pole through the plastic 'hinge' in new
handle by folding the hinge over and pushing the end of the L through
both sides of the plastic hinge at once. slide the lower loop of the
plastic hinge down the L shaped pole to secure pole to handle.
8) Place new
handle into door and reverse the process to reinstall interior panel.
My Sub is a 650S. Not sure your handle assy. is the same or not. But each of the 2 attachment points have a small 3/32" set screw on the bottom of each short piece between the vertical handle and the door. These set screws grab onto posts that are screwed into the door. There can be 3 points where the handle can work loose.
1. The set screw(s) have backed out and not holding tightly onto the door studs.
2. The studs in the door are loose and need to be tightened with a screw driver.
3. After loosening the handle via the set screws, when you look back into the cavity vacated by the studs from the door, (pivot handle clockwise past edge of door) you will see a Philips-head screw that secures the spacer to the handle. If the spacer is loose, tighten it with screw driver. Then mount back into door stud and tighten set screw. Problem Solved. Have a beer!!!
Call me 1-336-835-2180 10am-11pm 7 days a week eastern. Ask for R.C. and I'll be glad to tell you what all it takes. If you look at the other doors that will open you will notice a lever on the side of the latch it will release the latch. with the door open flip the latch and open it so you can see how it works. Also you can take the door panel partly loose. You will not get all the screws out. You can get enough out to pull the door panel out and reach into the door, pull the rod from the door handle and open it. Once the door is open there is a torque bit screw in the end of the door that holds the outside door handle on take it out, pull the door handle out and you will find a pin out or broke in the door handle. Take a handle on the door that works so you can see the difference. To do the back door on a 4 door you have to take out the interior panel that the top holder of the seat belt goes through to get to the screws in the end of the door panel just to get the interior door panel off to reach in. You can replace the rool pin with a screw, but be sure it's tight because it will back itself out and you'll have to do it all again. Been there and done that. Ha Ha. If you need more than this just call. I'm in North Carolina.
I assume that the entire handle unit is loose in the body work of the door. The interior door trim will need to be removed to access the inside of the door to fix the loose handle.
Do not attempt his yourself unless you have some experience in this area. Take the vehicle to the nearest reputable auto body repair shop and they can easily fix it for you. There could be a breakage on the retaining system on the handle or the retainers may just need tightening.
Typically door handles which have not been subject to damage or abuse will not usually loosen like this. It's possible the door was damaged and the panel repaired and repainted at some stage. If so the door handle may have been removed and refitted in a sloppy manner.
There is a "set screw" on the underside of the posts that connect the handle to the mounting posts on the face of the door of my Jenn-Air bottom freezer. Use an Allen wrench to loosen the set crew, which is very small (my Jenn-Air requires a 3/32" Allen wrench), and then tighten the bolt on the mounting post on the face of the freezer door. Position the handle over the post, then tighten the set screws with the Allen wrench. Cynthia
you will need a t-20 or t-15 torx bit driver to remove 2 screws holding the handle this is all that holds them on, on once you have a replacement handle it is easier to remove 2 lower screws on the door panel and unsnap the door panel to loosen it this will allow space making it easier to reinstall new handle just slide each end into the slot and reinsert 2 screws to not fully tighten until door panel is snapped back in. the panel is held on with clips and can be released using plastic pry tool around door panel edges.
Yes hello, I had the same problem - similar fridge model. Mine was the fridge (not freezer) door handle ie. the upper door. There are no small holes on the bottom of my fridge handle. Working from the outer door edge, I gently prized loose the plastic trim located under the door. I didn't take it completely off, just loosened about one quarter of the length, enough to flex the trim downward so that I could then access the phillips head screw that secures the fridge handle from the inside of the door. The trim will prevent you from using a conventional screw driver to tighten the screw. I used a screw driver bit which is only 25mm long. It has an hexagonal end to which I applied a small spanner and voila - the handle is once more secure. Good luck.
