There are several options to fixing a door handle if it is loose. The simplest method is to use exposed screws with a threaded spindle.

If the handle is loose on a security door, the owner should call the manufacturer, who will supply them with the tools to fix it. For security doors, they will likely send a ring shaped screwdriver, which should effectively tighten the loose screws.

The outside door handle on the driver's side is loose on the right side not the left. I found the screw for the out side left after taking the door panel off but could not find how to tighten the outside right of the handle. How is it connected ?

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.

I suspect the rod that opens the door has come loose or broken off the door handle and is keeping the window from coming down. Take the inside door panel off and check. If needed just replace the door handle.

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.

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
