Open the door and take a side door picture... That is the one in the diagram, but yes I see no holes in the standoff either. Now look closely as they often use a matching plug to cover the holes.

I have not resolved the issue. I was going to close out with a Poor rating, but wanted to check with you firs to see if you had any other input on resolving the loose handle.
