uPVC Door Handle Points Up

When locked, the door handle on our uPVC door points at about 11pm, rather than a flat 9pm.

Is this wear in the internal mechanism, or will a new handle fix it?

Thanks in advace

You'll need to take it apart to see if there's any wear on the handle, or if it's the mechanism itself.
Sounds like the gearbox may be on the way out. Wouldnt hurt to take the handle off and check its not bent or twisted though, Its only 2 screws to take the handle off
