      Rich, Thanks for those insights. I'll be sure to keep them in mind when I install the new handle, hopefully this weekend. It's scheduled to be delivered tomorrow, but they're calling for rain on Saturday, so my first opportunity will likely be Sunday. I'm hoping the forecast is wrong and I can get it done Saturday. Knowing the fragility of those door handles, I've always tried to be gentle with them, but the driver's door got out of adjustment last spring and I found myself tugging on the handle harder than I should have to get the door open. I eventually figured out how to adjust the rods and things went back to working normally, but I guess the damage was already done by that point and it was only a matter of time before the thing gave way.

      I didn't have to physically bend the replacement but the way they should be installed will form the part to the contour of the door. Tighten the lower self threading nut about halfway down the door first then as you tighten the top one it should pull the handle into place. Then swap the lock over and the anti-theft clip if equipped.   Also on the small piece that is riveted on that pivots freely at the bottom of the assembly, where it slides up and down on the other lever portion. Ive rounded that edge off with a file and smear some grease on it every once in awhile and its not broke since.  Also its all in the way you open the door too, only pull enough to pop the door open, grab it somewhere else to pull on it.

      New member. Just found this forum. I was hoping someone could tell me why certain things for these cars are so hard to find. Does nobody make seats for them,(as in a whole seat). I haven't even been able to find the electric motor for mine anywhere.

      I would check your ground wire from the battery to the frame.  I bet it is corroded. Remove some of the black insulation from the copper if it has green on it, it needs to be changed out. If the ground area where that wire is bolted to the frame is rusty that will need to cleaned.
