When I close the passenger door on my 64 SS the door locks. Didn't do this before it was disassembled for paint and bodywork, now does it every time.

Anyone else encountered this problem and know the fix?

Perhaps the connecting rod got bent between the inside handle striker plate and the lock barrel. Last year I had someone's kid suddenly grab the shiny chrome door lock knob and jam it up and down a few times to play with it. I didn't think it was a big deal until the door locked every time I closed it too. The key or the inside handle wouldn't then work to unlock it. The bit*h of the problem was trying to take off the inner panel with the door locked shut. I managed to fix it by straightening the rod. That little bastard is not allowed anywhere near my cars now.
