Peugeot 307 Rear Door Handle Engagement

If a slight tweak to either part is possible do you think it would make the handle open the door as it should, i take it the levers on these parts are metal , would you know if they are ?

On previous vehicles with similar problems (C5 MK I for example) sometimes the door handle would lift up but feels like it is not engaged in the mechanism and so does nothing. It's just like when the vehicle is deadlocked (2 presses on the locking fob on most PSA cars - if fitted). Deadlocking detaches the handle from the locking mechanism to prevent opening of the doors from the inside or outside if the car is broken into to hamper access / egress.

Sometimes, as you have discovered, a firm push on the outside can sometimes sort it. Mine only did this a few times, so never had a recurring issue with it. I can't tell you what the parts are made of unfortunately.

Thanks Marc . This is great, ive had success this evening by a little tweak of the metal lever that comes from the mechanism to the inner handle buy means of long nosed pliers
Photos, tools needed, screw position on door car, inside of door showing level to door handle , with the pliers just slightly twist lever upwards this makes a closer touch of the inner door handle leaver . Pull door handle after the adjustment door opens much better.
