Customer Question
I have a 2001...

I have a 2001 Chevy Monte Carlo SS, 3800 Series, 6 cylinder, the problem I am having is the driver's side door is spring and the latch mechanism won't latch, I have had it to several shops that said they could not help me what do I do?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Monte Carlo yourself? What have you tried so far?

No I will not try it on my own that is why I have taken it to several shops here in Parkersburg WV, they are telling me just to weld it shut and not use it, I can't do that I have school aged children

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

They said they can't find or buy the parts anymore to fix the door properly
