How do you tighten loose door handle on ge monogram dishwasher?

Open the door. Remove the 12 screws inside the door around the perimeter. The front of the door will separate from the back- be careful to not let them spring apart. You may want to disconnect the black plastic control panel wire harnesses inside the door so you don't risk damaging any wires. Affixing the handle to the door is two 3/8 hex heads. Remove both screws. My handle felt loose because there is a Allen head screw inside the handle post that was loose. Needs to be tightened through the 3/8 hex thread hole with a small SAE Allen size. Reverse order for putting door back together.

How do you replace the outer door handle on a Honda Del Sol vtech?

I have a 93 del sol si. the door handle stopped working so I removed the inside door panel, which I've done before, so it that was the easy part. I had to put the spring back into position. Once the panel is removed, you'll see two holes on the door frame that allow you to access the nuts that hold the door handle in place. You access the nuts with a lug wrench extension. One remove the two nuts, the door handle comes loose. The hard part is you have to make sure the spring on the door handle is in place when you put the door handle back.

How do you troubleshoot passenger door lock not working on a Mazda MX6?

You need to be a little clearer with your question. If the problem is with the outside door handle not opening the door, the handle is broken and will have to be replaced. If the lock cylinder will not lock or unlock from the outside, the linkage has probably come loose. If the lock button will not lock or unlock the door, the linkage has probably come loose. All of these require removing the inner door panel to investigate further (no big deal). BarryC sandbar905@comcast.net
