Re: Rear Doors link between outer handle and lock

One of the external rear door handles broke on my megane I a few months ago. In my case the problem turned out to be a plastic hinge-pin sort-of-thing had snapped. I just replaced it with a bolt. IIRC that pin went into the handle itself, and pulled up a bar connecting to the lock when the handle was operated.

Relatively straightforward once I'd figured out how it worked. It was just a bit painful trying to work through the gap in the metal of the door. Then a bit of trial and error to get it adjusted so that the handle operated correctly.
