did you change the spring? is is that big one where the latch connects the the 
sliding door. What did you have to do? I got the door off and I am looking at 
it. It looks fine to me.

There's a spring in there that gets it to pop out. I had to fix it a long time 
ago but it's in the door where the slider mounts to it. Basically when the 
latch is released it causes the door to pull away from the body.

I've got a snag in my sliding door. When you open it from the outside - i pull 
on therear latch to get the door to pop open. I pulled the rear latch off and 
cleaned it all up and oiled it - no improvement. So I am debating pulling to 
door off tonight , take the lock off and see if there is a way to lube them. 
Must be something inside. all the bearings look good. 
Door gets worst when its get colder - during the summer the door opens up fine, 
I did put a new seal on the sliding door last year and I even coated the rubber 
with some silicon to make sure the seal wasn't causing the door to hang..... 

If I get cant it all back together I'll catch everyone at the next show.
