I have replaced the door handle on the driver's side of my 2012, and I wanted to replace the handle on the passenger's side now that it doing the infamous "loose hang". I took the panel off and swapped it out, but when the door was reassembled, the remote lock function wasn't working on that door (unlock was working). I decided to take it apart again just to check things out, and now the cable that runs to the latch won't reach. What I mean is that the "metal part of the cable" in the rubber sleeve is showing less metal cable than before. As such, the little cylinder that clips into the handle will not reach if the white plastic piece is seated in the "saddle" on the door handle assembly (see picture). The internet seems to have no comments on this. I pulled on it...I pulled on it while locking/unlocking with the remote....nothing. I am at my wits end. I don't want to take it in since the actuator seems to still be working just fine. I just need it to give me a little more cable!
