    Cool door panel and latch help

    Theres prying tools avaible to help remove panels or just pull slowly and they pop-off. Had same type issue with my 96 Suburban and simple spray lubed cleared up problem

    Thanks tried good old w.d 40 several times with no luck. I think the 182k just wore it out unless the pull rod has an adjustment on it. Bob

    They're plastic and they are known for letting go. I've had to replace all four in my Suburban. 20 bucks at the auto parts store and you're all set.
