I've been having problems with our Kwikset front door handle. It's a lever on one side, and a press down latch on the other. When you try to open the door, it doesn't retract the bolt all the way. I took it apart, and believe that the problem is the worn grooves. (Circled in red in the first picture. ) I'd like to repair it if possible. I looked on the Kwikset site to see if I could identify that part to obtain a replacement but had no luck finding it, as there parts breakdown diagrams were not very useful.
Does anyone know what the name is of the worn part? Is it replaceable? If not, what is the least amount of parts I'd have to purchase to repair it?
Thanks in advance.
