    Default Door handle loose

    Just bought an 03 elegance and have noticed that the rear passenger door handle is a bit loose, and does not return fully after being pulled.

    Is it a new handle required or can the mechanism be tightened / adjusted?

    Thanks

    When you open the door, look above the lock mechanism, there is a grommet covering a torx screw. Take it off, pull the handle to the open position and undo the screw fully. It won't come out, but I believe it needs to be undone. That's the first thing I'd check.

    Thanks for that.

    Is it likely taking the handle out and then putting it back in will tighten it up ?
