Default 2000 S80 Exterior Door Handle Link Rod

Hi All,

The front passenger side door can only be opened from the inside; the exterior handle will not open the door.

I removed the interior door panel and noted that the link rod from the exterior door handle to the lock/actuator was disconnected on the lock/actuator side.

I do not know how this threaded end on the linkage gets attached to the lock/actuator. I understand *where* it attaches to open the door, but I do not see *how* the threaded link and lock/actuator should be attached.

Is there some special clip that interfaces the threaded link to the oddly-shaped metal piece on the lock/actuator?

I have looked at photos of new door handles and new locks, but I do not see anything except the threaded rod and the oddly-shaped metal piece on the lock/actuator.

In the photo below, thumb is pointing toward oddly-shaped metal piece.

Any help is welcome; thanks in advance!

It clips into that clip. It looks like yours might be bent. The side that is touching the green part of the unit needs to be bent back toward the clip, if possible.

Thanks EST6. I found that out this afternoon.

Attached is a picture of how the link should be attached to the actuator/lock lever. I bent the clip back into place. Time will tell if it will stay attached.
