260z door latch not clicking....

Recommended Posts

the door latch that holds the door closed ( maybe call the striker? ) is not clicking when i flick it.. it just springs back,,, therefor the door wont stay closed..

a) can this be fixed? is something jammed in the spring area inside the door??

b) is it broken and need replacing?

c) how do you get that thing out???

d) also the plastic cylinder that holds the door handle rod will not go up and down.. its also stuck  in place.. not sure if that is related to the no click action...

Clean the latch, especially INSIDE the door & re-lube it.  Sometimes just gummed up & dirty, sometimes broken.  You can use the correct side latch from a 1970-1976 Z car (not the 77-78 280Z or 280ZX!)
