The other day I noticed about 3/4" of slack in the driver door handle pull (exterior) before it hits the latch. I'm probably going to pull the panel off tomorrow but I was just wondering if anyone has ran into this? I just want to get this taken care of before it becomes a problem and doesn't open one day...

From what I've been seeing online, the only thing I can do is replace that handle assembly, which looks to be no big deal except I will need to paint it to color match as all my handles are painted.
