When  driving the D on a bumpy road, the

Perhaps one of the lock rods is disconnected as a work-around to cure a  door 
that doesn't always lock or unlock properly.  You'll see when you  
disassemble your door. Compare it to the drawings in the Workshop  manual. I've heard of 
it being done. Hah! I'm a fine one to offer advice  when my own door has 
problems...the bellcrank gets hung up so that sometimes the  door won't unlock, or 
the door bounces back open instead of latching when I  close it.  I have to 
tap the bellcrank with my finger to dislodge it. So,  the top half of my door 
is always off for access. I just haven't had the time or  temperament to remove 
the bottom door cover again. Last time I did that it was  off until it was at 
P. J. Grady for a manifold gasket repair. Too bad the door  was behaving then.
