What brand of lock is it? Are you talking about the look/handle where you put the key? Or the latch itself?

On that age of coach the lock is likely a trimark. The hardest part od that job is getting the door panel. After that itís 2 or 3 screws and if you have power locks 1 rod that needs to be disconnect from the actuator. You have to twist and turn it as your uninstall install it.

You need to get the old one out as the part number is in the casting inside. There are really 2 different ones from that vintage.

If your talking about the latch and striker you have to take the handle out first, then 2 star shaped screws to remove the latch.

Im following this. My 1999 Intrigue has very loose door handle mech. So loose that we lock the deadbolt during travel because it can pop open on a bump!! We had it serviced (taken apart) still no improvement!! We have also adjusted the strike plate. Needs replacement.?? Can’t find one.

I have had mine pop open a few times while driving. It seems that the two springs that hold the lever in the 9 o clock position are getting less springy. As we go down the road you can see the handle falling until the door opens. I am thinking of taking it apart again and seeing if I can find two new springs. I have been told they don't make this latch anymore. I bought a new one which they said would be a replacement but, it doesn't look like a direct replacement. The striker is in a different position I think and I don't want to fool with all of this. If anyone finds one of our handles let me know also. I may try the spring idea too and let everyone know.

I have replace the springs in my lock and no improvement. The handle is very loose even before it engages the part with the springs. There is an indention on the part with the springs that has been worn out with 20 years of use. The handle falls down to that point before it begins to engage. I don't see a way to tighten the handle without removing the lock and getting to the back side.

We always use the dead bolt as my dog was sitting on the step cover once when the latch gave way and the door opened.

Magna should have a PTL Engineering door like mine, they are still in business, and have some parts. We got a new deadbolt from them for ours, which we could not find anywhere else.

I am on their website and don't see our latch but, someone should call or send an email and maybe include a picture? Actually I will now and see what they say. Good call.

PTL is very much in business and sells the parts for their door locks. We replaced the deadbolt in ours and the new parts fit perfectly.

Attached is a photo of the entire latch and deadbolt assembly.

Dont know the reason but my lock is from The Theodore Bargman Company. The locks were primarily used in Airstreams. My guess is that it was changed out at sometime in the past. There are a couple on eBay for sale. To replace will be a challenge. The back plate comes off but then the rest goes out the front of the door and there is a lot of sealant to go with it.

Here is a Bargman door lock which looks exactly like our door lock.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/20353643831...8a09b210a39010

We do not begin driving without engaging the dead bolt.

The hinges on our Magna allow the door to sag since they are at the lower half of the door.

I have used a 2x4 and a small sledge several times over the last 20 years to adjust those hinges.

The Bargman will not set into the striker plate when the hinges are out of whack. That is when our inside handle fails to maintain its attitude and does not latch.

Here is another offering to replace the Bargman L-300 and for less money.

Yes, my DW was very startled when that door swung open at 65 mph with the rig in the left lane of I5. I could not pull over immediately and she could not pull the door closed. Use your deadbolt to avoid.
