2003 outside door handle problem
I recently picked up a 2003 E46 coupe from a re-cycler. The passenger door handle was missing. When I installed a replacement, I couldn't get the door to open. The handle lifted properly, but the tongue wouldn't release from the catch bracket. I can, however, open the door from the inside by pulling the Bowden cable forward. (The interior panel's been removed.)
Anyone have thoughts? Bad carrier, maybe? Something else for me to try?
I'll appreciate any suggestions.
