if yours doesn't have the allen screw on the handle, you have to push the handle down(pushing it from the top) you might need a helper because it's really tight. I had a hard time removing those handles
If you take the inner door panel off and have the window up, you should be able to access the area to tighten the handle down. If the handle assembly is still tight, but the handle its self seems to have no resistance, the plastic clip where the release rod attaches may have broken.
usually the door latch will go bad when the door hinge bushings are very worn. Inspect the door hinge by holding the door a grab the outside door handle and the door shell firmly. Now lift the door up vertically and see if there is any play in the hinges. If the slightest movement is found replace the door hinge pins and bushings. your door latch may work great again If not replace that too
The solution on the Kenmore 56822 turned out to be very simple:
With the door closed, pull up on the door handle (requires some force). The door handle will slide up, and once it is up, it can be removed by carefully pulling it off of the door. Then the screws holding the mounting lug can be tightened. Place the handle back on the door, and slide it down, and voila, no more loose handle. I am going to put some LockTite on the screw on mine to ensure that it stays tight.
The obvious (which you probably already did thing to check lst --are the lug nuts tight, is the center spindle nut tight. It could be the bearings,but I would then check your ball joints or tie rods. Grab the tire at the top and bottom, try to move the tire in and out. Have someone watching the ball joints to see if there is movement (aka, play, they are loose). Next grab the tire at the front and back, and again try to pull it in and out while someone watches. If you can see movement in these components, they should be replaced asap (car won't handle as well, tires wear out quicker, etc) good luck countrycurt0
Pulled the handle up to release it from the clips on the door. The screw in the plastic door handle that attaches the handle to the door clip was striped. I used a small amount of J B Weld epoxy to repair and reattach the screw. Realign the handle with the clips and push handle down to reinstall.
