I broke it
The latch got stuck closed while I was installing it. I had to open it up to get it open and a spring popped out now only the outside door latch works....

Exactly the experience you want to have online
I ordered this part not quite sure what I was going to get. I got a great price and received the part in just a few days. No issues. My mechanic installed and everything worked out great. I would definitely recommend to anyone considering purchasing from 1A to not hold back. I am very happy with my purchase.
