yeah right,she might be a rough truck but its gotta last me,


i can see in the door by removing the rubber plug,a small little lever that i can just reach with a screwdriver,but i think all i can do is keep soaking it with wd40

Did you make sure the cable is still connected to the door handle? It is similar to a hand brake on a pedal bike and my drivers side rear door has the cable slip out all the time, rendering the door handle useless.
