Broken Door Latch Spring Replacement

Forgot to mention in the vid that you'll need to remove the OUTER door handle as well as the inner handle to remove the latch assembly... Made this on the fly while fixing a broken door latch spring. The vid is a bit shaky and choppy, but I'm happy with the coil spring conversion method I came up with. Door latch springs can be converted to coils for less than $5 ea.
