My driver's side interior door handle won't spring back to the normal position when I open the door. I have to push it back down manually to close the door. Can anyone tell me if the interior door handle return spring is in the door latch mechanism or in the interior door handle control assembly before I start to pull it all apart? Thanks for any advice.

The wound up spring inside is broken, you have to replace it. Repro's are available for around $10-15.

Is that spring included as part of the "interior door handle control assembly". If so, then I know what part to order.
Thanks for the quick reply.

yep, it's inside that whole pull mechanism with the shaft for the door pull handle. when you take it off, you'll see the coil on the backside and probably see the broken area.

I just changed mine lastnight, pretty easy. I also changed my window rollers while I was in there (cheap) and my latch.
