Interior problem

i have been workin on my father in law 70 chevelle.I cannot figure out how to fix his doorlocks?Inside handle assy works but outside handle button doesnt work and pass side is really hard to push and have too burry button and pull so this side is going to break too?I see a shaft that slips off the 90 degree lever. Is that suppose too be secure to the lever or is the shaft to be straight?And how do you change out without pulling the steel inner skin off? Thanks bill

You're gonna have to replace the handles on the door, remove indoor panel, with the window up, remove the 2 bolts holding outside handle, remove the handle, it's tight but you can do it. If the handles are OEM, they're just wore out, the springs rust and break. Good luck, let me know how you make out, Lou
