    All the ones I have found are bout the door not unlocking or inside and outside handle not opening. Mine locks and unlocks fine, and opens on the inside just fine just not the outside

    I was doing more searching because it wasn't just the door handle that was creating the problem, there is a little plastic piece that holds the rod to the latch that broke. But I forgot to save the post to help others in the future. Thanks for everyone trying to help just wrong problem.
