Door latch post assembly diagram

Does anyone have a diagram or picture of how the door latch post assembly goes together? My passenger door rattles badly and the post wiggles. It won't turn, so it's not just a loose bolt/nut/thread/whatever or however it fastens. I "***-u-med" the latch post has a threaded shaft on the end, but guessing that's not the case?

The Nader pin (latch post) is what I assume you are talking about. That is just tightened with a torx wrench. It is basically a bolt. If the whole housing wiggles, check the three torx bolts that hold it in place.

Thanks - yeah, the Nader pin - a VERY intuitive name! like I really would have thought to google that! But, it figures that as soon as I posted this, I did find a picture/diagram showing that fastens to the body with 4 bolts. I suspect that's what's loose. Thanks!

I only know that from my EMT/firefighter experience.

My drivers side one was broken, so I bought a pair from q-tech and swapped them both. Not too expensive. I still have the old passenger side post assembly if you need it, for a nominal amount.

Hey jbolty - thanks for the offer, but after taking both sides off, turns out both assemblies are cracked, so I need to order a pair of them.
