Re[4]: door handle techniques and sympathy

Thanks for the reply's.

I was referring to replacement/adjusting the position of the striking pin in the
door jamb.  My recollection is I had a problem with this before in a VW(should 
be the same as AUDI - the captive nut was slipping).  

I expect it really is an easy inexpensive repair for this common problem, and 
probably should be attended to before "adjusting" the other mechanisms inside 
the door.

Are you referring to adjusting the position of the 
striking pin in the door jamb, or the lever coming out 
of the "inside" (hidden by door panel) of the latch 
mechanism that the connecting rod fits into?  This 
"pillar" terminology is killing me.  I have the Bentley 
if you want to refer to something we can both look at.
