I have done this recently to both my doors, so I'll try to help. Does your actual outer door handle itself
function as it's supposed too.
The door handle connects to a rod with a hole in it, by means of a washer and tiny cotter pin. Are those still connected?
The threaded rod, is adjustable. I believe it has a metal clip that can be locked onto the rod where ever it works best. But, because you are replacing and unrelated item, you should just put it back to where it was originally. Hope that helps.
