1995 outside door handle

I have had the outside chrome door handle replaced twice on my 95 taco. Seems like i am having to lift the handle so far, that the handle is actually cracking. There must be an adjustment somewhere. Is this something that someone could walk me thru? I'm not even sure about how to remove the door panel. (assuming that needs to be done) Thanks for any help you can give.....MH

Seems like you got some issue with the linkage inside the door.

Removing the door panel is easy.

Off the top of my head, remove the two screws in the arm rest/pull. Pop off the trim panel around the switches (if you have any), then remove the wire clips. Remove the little screw in from the interior door handle. Remove door handle from rod.

Then there's like 6 or so clips behind the panel that you just slowly/carefully pry. Lift up and off to remove the panel.

Readjusted and is fine.
How Did you readjust the door?
