did you remove the lock as well, or just the handle?

 

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
LOL there is no lock on the passenger side of the car this is the handle. Its three pieces, inner ,outter cup and handle. i have removed just the handle part
Expert:  Steve replied 5 years ago.

I was referring to the lock actuator. I am aware there is no keyhole on this door.

 

you have just removed the covering shell? not the actual handle?

The handle should just plug back in. Make sure the bowden cable is properly connected and routed.

 

I hope that is helpful, please let me know if you have further questions, or if I can clarify anything for you.

 

It has been my pleasure to help today and I wish you the best of luck with the vehicle.

Right thats not gonna work, ive tried that. It does not just plug back in theres a bolt from the inner that connects the two (inner and outter handles) once i plug it back in it seems the bowden cable gets streched to far and the door wont shut.
