The handle feels ok. I have not had the car for long, but I think that it
feels like it should if the door is locked.
After thinking about it all night I think I know what happened. Inside the
door on the locking mechanism there is a U-shaped plastic part that goes
around these 2 metal levels coming into the side of the door from the lock.
I think that these levers actually lock and unlock the door and I think that
the plastic U-shaped part that slips over them fell off.
I don't have a Bentley and have not seen the drawings, but I did just get
done with putting the door back together after having to repair the lock
Anyone got any bright ideas as to how to get to those levers? Someone on the
20v list suggested to go at them from the outside of the door with a coat
hanger through the window. I don't know if that will work because I remember
there being a plastic cover inside around the mechanism to prevent
Gonna spend some more time on it...

Its not clear what the symptems are. When you pull on the door handle,
does it move, yet the door does nt open? Or does it stick? Or does ti
move freely as if it were disconnected? You need to get a couple of
reasonable hypotheses about what broke. Have you studied the bently
