Door handles

Hi,

Have recently changed my Mk1 Mondeo Est to a MK2 2l Si Saloon ( due to the wife killing her car!! ). only problem is both exterior rear door handles don't return to the closed position by themselves, this i would imagine is spring related but how do I sort it out. I remember to push the handle down but unfortunately the kids don't and i can see an accident happening, anu help most appreciated.

Re: Door handles

Get yourself a tin of WD40 and with the aid of attached little red straw, apply in/around/under the handle and where it goes through the door-skin, keep working the handle and should free off.

Re: Door handles

Hi Fordtech,

Thanks once again for your spot on advice, half a can of WD40 later and both haandles are now working, will i need to repaet this in the future to keep them working or will normal use be enough?

Re: Door handles
