Randomly one day I went to my car and the door handle was very loose. It just wiggles around and stays open when I pull it out. I finally got in there today to take it all apart after getting my new door handle I received in the mail but it appears it is not the door handle that is broken because the new one does the same thing.
After playing with it for a while, I realized that the bar didn't seem to be attached to the handle in any way so I couldn't figure out how it was supposed to work at all. I then came on here to do some investigating. The bar works fine when I pull it down manually.
After reading through some more threads on here I decided to check around the bottom of the door for broken parts and I found this:
I'm not 100% it's related but since nothing else is broken on that door, I'm assuming it is but I have no idea how to reattach it.
