I'm having trouble finding any info about how to repair my inside front door handle.

The handle tries to turn the mech to release the latch, it's just loose. Even when I push it in it just spins now, and doesn't feel like it fully engages. It worked for a while then quit.

I'm wondering if the teeth on the receiver part of the handle are worn out, if I have the clip put in wrong, or do I need to replace some mech inside the door?

It's likely just stripped on the handle side like you mentioned.
The clip being installed wrong would only effect how the handle stays on.

Just pop the clip out, pull the handle off, and take a look at it.

Still got all those door parts frscke? Lol. I saw that photo in a post from a while ago about the outside handle, looks like you even got more now. Luckily they stock the inside handle at autozone for $7.50. I'm going to get the new one on and see how she does.

I coulda used those wiper arms a couple months ago though haha.

Yep I still have them inside outside and more for my grandkids when they get the vans...

They stock China handles ... if you take your old one with you you will see how thin the metal is and will go thru 2 or 3 before you break another GM part.

5 bucks at a yard and will outlast a autozone handle any day.

Yeah, I can see the Dorman handles being shitty, but unfortunately all the good parts yards a a decent drive from the house, and the ones that are close typically won't let you on the yard because of theft, or the people that work there are so sour I just would rather have not gone at all. Or they don't answer the damn phone or lie to you on the phone and when you show up you get "sorry been crushed". I'll see how long the china special handle lasts for now.
