Hello everyone. I have a puzzle going. I have a 1998 slk 230 that the driver side exterior door handle quit working on. took door panel off. found broke plastic chunks from the latch in the bottom of the door. Obviously broken latch. ordered new latch. same part number as on the original and it looks identical. Only difference I can see it the tab the handle catches sticks out to far. I looked at passenger side door handle and the tab from the latch sits behind the spring. on the drivers side it is sitting in front of the spring. dimpled holes in the door for mounting insure it only goes on in one exact place. The new tab looks like it should rotate farther back. been studying the parts for 2 days. Anyone that could help on this I would consider a slk God/ guru Mahalo David Fenton (first pic arrow where i think latch tab should go. second pic arrows are difference in tab rotation)
