I forgot to mention the reason we have to strap the door closed was the fact that the dead bolt spring had broken before we left and i had no other way to keep the door closed.

As for the dead bolt spring you can cut a piece of hack saw blade to fit the space and put a slight bend in it to replace the spring. It is just a toggle so you only need the slightest offset on the spring to work.

To get access and remove the door handle you will have to cut small holes in the interior skin. These can be covered when done with blank off white 2x4 electrical plates. Almost unseen when done.

What broke on ours is the bottom pin of the exterior door handle. I removed the lock, drilled out the old pin, inserted a metal screw after cutting off the top, and used JB Weld to secure it. Works fine. Don't know if this is your problem, but hope this may help someone.
