80 quattro (many problems)

5.  rear lock pulls will not screw down

on some of the newer Audis they don't *screw* down.  There is a tab or star or
some tick mark mark on one side; the door lock pull is not threaded all the way
around, but has a flat spot.  Slide the pull with the flat spot and the mark
aligned until the pull is at its required depth then turn it 180 degrees to lock
it.  If you try to *screw* the pull on you will strip away the locking tab and
it will never lock.  If you try this with new Audi tabs the results will be the
same: stripped tabs and frustration.

My .02 on a cheap & easy fix.
