My 1998 Eclipse had a broken door handle, so I replaced it and it worked fine. After a little while, it stopped working - but the handle isn't broken. I took apart the door and all of the rods are still connected. The handle appears to be working correctly, but as you're opening the door, when the bolt attached to the rod connected to the door handle hits the l-shaped joint that needs to be pushed down to unlatch the door mechanism, it just stops and is unable to push down the joint. If I manually push down the joint with a wrench from the inside, it unlatches the door. Any ideas?
