If the inside door opening levers seem to have play before they actuate the latch, you have routed the cables incorrectly. I believe you don't have to remove the trim panels but can correct the cable routing by removing the plastic handle surrounds and hooking up the cables correctly. If I remember correctly, the handle cable has to be "clipped" to the plastic surround.
