    For my driver and passenger side doors the door handles are not working till you have to pull them hard. Is there a screw missing? Is it not triggering at a certain point? Thanks!

    remove the interior door panel and look for yourself.
    It's not hard... there's like only two screws that hold the handle.

    It's most likely some issue with the linkage rod ends

    Be careful if you remove it it is very easy to bend the slotted portion of the latch rod causing you hrs of aggravation trying to realign it to get the lock of handle to work again
