I just had a friend tell me this weekend that the rod on the Push Button on Repop Door Handles is longer than originals. I hadn't heard this before. He pushed the button to open the door on my car, and knew right off it had Repop Door handles. The button engages right away on Repops. He said to fix the problem you need to take the Door Handle back off and cut about 1/4 in. off of the rod. I locked myself out of my car once last fall and suspect this was the problem. I have since learned, if I lock the Doors with the key from the outside, then I can also unlock it without issue.
