Re: stuck gti handle (beachball6)

It may have broken. The metal goes bad in the handle and cracks and then the door gets harder and harder to open til it wont open anymore. Sometimes fast sometimes slow...
You might want to take the door handle off and see if the trigger part is broken. While you have it off you can use your finger to press down on the latch lever in the door and make sure the actual lock mechanism is still working ok.
