My car was hit on the passenger side which pushed in the door and broke the handle. The door handle was replaced and the body work was done but the handle doesn’t retract when you open from the outside. I haven’t ruled out a defective door handle as I know it has a spring but I’m doubtful as it’s new. When looking in the door the large rod connected to the handle does appear to have a small bend in it but not sure if it’s normal. Anyone have any expertise as I’m hoping I don’t have to replace the whole actuator and maybe just the rod or even another new handle.
