When you take a latch assembly apart it becomes very obvious how the latches can fault in so many ways, ANY drag at all caused by the latch running dry of grease because of age and the limit switches inside then go into problematic operation that shows up in several ways. You have to have every bit of the last 2-3 degrees or so of latch part motion and always or then you sometimes don't trip the limit. Very common to have intermittent issues with it. The limits also are thin silicone skin weather protected and that is weak as spit to let the elements get to the switch internals pretty quick. Simply touching that weather cover with a finger can ruin it.

Sheesh.

I would've gotten into this today but thank you amazon for some reason cancelling my order and saying I did it.
smh
A few more days now until I open it up.

Thanks for the input.

Oh, I already called them out on it. Refunded but no explanation why it was cancelled.
"Delivery attempted at 3:25pm and again at 5pm after which it was cancelled online and returned, says refused delivery."

I used the amazon locker option, how in the hell could I refuse delivery?

Gotta see where else I can get it, maybe one of the chain stores... Advance or Oreilly.

By credit I mean above and beyond the refund. They have messed you up with their incompetence. My son does it all the time.

If you buy at a chain store highly likely you will pay too much, I used to work for them, dealer type parts they commonly hang you out to dry on. Unless buying a Chinese copy of something and likely there too. Things like headlights and taillights were a terrible ripoff.

Yeah, I know. I want Dorman 81970. I don't go about them any other way. I should try being more aggravated when I talk to those people. Its their job to be nice and mine to be mean. I ordered it next day, too. Had I been in the business mentality, I would've been able to express how I lost money and a customer by not having a part... I don't know what above my money back I should be requesting though.

Any examples?

Time lost waiting for it. Shipping cost. Time lost from not being able to go to work due to them is a good one.

The son buys scads of first day video games, any mistake can mean not even getting 'special editions' of some as they can be gone in less than 4 hours. He's gotten back $50 more than once over loss of that and $20-$30 over missing first day and getting it on the second, he tells them he is a game reviewer for magazines (he is actually). They commonly lump one discount on top of another and often only give the one, that always gets them raked to give more too for the inconvenience. Being a bigtime Prime user with shipments all day long adds to it, they would lose a big chunk there.

I too languished forever letting people stiff me on things just by them being more forceful than me, you need to develop the skills. Just be sure you are in the right about it. It's not about you're being mean, more like you want what you PAID FOR. Or, the normal right to get treated in a fair fashion.
