All, for those of you that purchase the repo door handle push buttons there is a big issue with them. The stems are a little longer and if installed that way you will not be able to unlock the door once it is locked. The only way I was able to get the door unlocked was to remove the seat and then pry the door panel loose and reach in and get the latch to release. They appear to be about 3/16 longer, just compare theold to the new and cut them the same size, round them off and then install.

Ray,

This seems somehow familiar (like I have heard it before) but I did not (that I can remember!) have to do this with mine. Wonder if the pins were not pressed in far enough to the button? Anyway, glad you got it worked out, that was some crap having to do what you did to access!

Regards,

Bob
