See here for an update on the door: that-dang-sprinter-sliding-door I've had a lot of subsequent trouble with it.
My sliding door handle broke and wouldn't open the door at all while I was on my trip last summer. I ended up using the driver's door instead, which the dog adapted to quickly.

I will just have to wait for the call.
