Lately I've been having a problem with my door, doesn't like to open very much, I opened it up and looked for an adjustment or anything, didn't find anything. Eventually it just broke. Does the cable in there stretch or anything? What makes it quit working?
u need a new latch/cable assembly.....when you get the door panel off you need to see if where the handle attatches to the door...check and make sure it didnt split the sheet metal. Obviously you need a handle if its broken too....its pretty common on OBS trucks....
Marc's right, the door handle on these is just held to the door with 1 tab and 1 screw with a foldover clip and it tends to tear the foldover clip out of the sheet metal. A cheap fix is to remove the door panel and use a hammer to flatten out the sheet metal where it broke and reattach the door handle using a 1/4" bolt with a fender washer on the back.

Or, you can do what I did. I have a bunch of knock-outs from electrical boxes - they are a little thicker than standard washers. I drilled a hole in one and put the clip over it so I could use the same bolt and clip. I bent the torn sheet metal back into place and held the washer/clip with one hand while screwing the bolt into place. Works like a charm.
