Dizzy Door Latch Not Closing - Vue 2006

Hi!

My back passenger side door seems to be stuck in the open position. I've tried locking and unlocking 100x, closing it when it's locked, WD-40, lifting the handles (inside and outside).

The latch is in the open position and when I push it down to go in closed position, there is no clicking.

Any idea??

I try to visit forum often but suggest you use private messages if in a rush (comes to cell) and include email address for extracts. I seldom check visitor messages so please don't use.

Thanks. I did search but I didn't come across that thread. Do you know where I could get a diagram of the latch assembly so I can what it should look like and to know if I'm missing anything?

I have a service manual extract of the latch assembly and other linkage. Its too large to attach to post (184kb) but I can email. Use PM (left click my screen name) to send address.

Thank you very much. I appreciate it! Just want to try to do it as quick as possible since it's 30 degrees out :-D

The problem happened occasionally in warm weather too, so I know it's not the cold.

Well..finally got it fixed! Part came from a junk yard since you can't get the latch assembly anywhere but a salvage yard. It was $35 - woo hoo.

Had to take off the inside and outside of the door, remove latch assembly, re-attach it to the handles and power, and done. Total PITA, but glad I did it myself!

And thanks far2grumpy for the help!
