HZ Holden door catch

The drivers door when opening from the outside opens to the burst catch only and from there will not open or release the door. From there I need to press the lock pin down and up then open the handle again otherwise the interior door handle opens the lock fine from closed or when caught on the burst catch. I’ve adjusted the striker pin all the way out. Any help or suggestions appreciated.

HQ one tonner

Well l got a neighbour that's 60 odd and he has a HQ one tonne ute hasn't had a speedo for five yrs and no fuel gauge,l offered to help told him it will only be a cable more than likely,he was told by his mechanic that the dash had to come out well anyway l pulled the cable out and it was broke so he got one of the long ones from repco and got a mate to cut it and join the end on it well the cable had actually broke into three pieces so l got mine out off the HQ to fix his all good except him walking on me and talking about reinventing the wheel and kept pinching my beer etc etc
