550 door latch mechanism

Is it a common problem on the 550's that the mechanism that allows the door to open from the outside snaps?

I'm going to remove the door card & take a look when I have time, just wondered if anybody else has encountered this issue. If so, what it took to rectify it.

Thanks all

Lee- Do you mean it breaks, makes a snapping noise, or the handle snaps back when released?

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.

Hi, no worries. I collected the car today & the previous owner has had the mechanism fixed. Thanks
