Removed the screws holding the door liner in place removed latch. Waited for half of the parts to get here, about 2 weeks. Parts got here except for Door latch and seal they were back ordered. One month after I ordered all parts finally arrive. Replace door latch assembly and replace door seal reinstall retaining screws....Done works good again. Parts were all the correct ones just took a long time to get here.
