    So the door handle to my back upvc door is dropping, it all still functions but doesn't sit correctly. Few questions:

    1. Should replacing the handle fix this problem?
    2. How easy is it to do? Watched a few videos online but just wary of taking my handle apart and not been able to put the new one on.
    3. Any hints / tips?

    Cheers

    This is good to know, but the handle is looking a bit tired so will be looking to update it anyway. Is the removal of the handle to change (even if just doing the spring) as simple as unscrew and replace?

    I have yes. Not the cheapest but there website shows how to measure the handles quite well and they do have a large selection of handles
