So my dad's 2002 Focus (manual doors) passenger door stopped opening. It was loose as hell but could still be opened from the inside. I opened up the door and looked behind the trim. Tried the handle and found the culprit.

This is what's happening. This rod connected to the handle(marked in red):



When opening moves down but then as it pushes on the metal section for the latch, it slips through. I bent it out just a tiny bit (more to the left) as a temporary fix, so it still slips on the first try but opens on the second.

Here's my easier explanation (sorry if the sketch isn't too good):



Wanted to know if anyone ever experienced this and fixed it or if someone just knows everything Focus and can help me out.
