I removed the door panel by unscrewing the 12 allen screws and found that the handle hinges broke & latch assembly locking gear was worn down...just normal wear & tear. this diagnostic process just took 45 minutes...remove the door, identify the problem, remove the parts, reassemble the door. I then ordered the parts online.

Once the parts arrived, it took me less than 45 minutes to re-remove the door, reconnect the 4 wires to latch assembly, snap the latch handle into place, and reassemble the door.
