Exterior door handle stopped working (pics included)
Randomly one day I went to my car and the door handle was very loose. It just wiggles around and stays open when I pull it out. I finally got in there today to take it all apart after getting my new door handle I received in the mail but it appears it is not the door handle that is broken because the new one does the same thing.
After playing with it for a while, I realized that the bar didn't seem to be attached to the handle in any way so I couldn't figure out how it was supposed to work at all. I then came on here to do some investigating. The bar works fine when I pull it down manually.
After reading through some more threads on here I decided to check around the bottom of the door for broken parts and I found this:
I'm not 100% it's related but since nothing else is broken on that door, I'm assuming it is but I have no idea how to reattach it.
Is there anyone out there that can help???
Alright ladies and gents. I appreciate all the feedback and advice I've gotten but I'm glad to say that I figured it out on my own.
Unfortunately the pics I took at first were taken with the door handle in place, which made it so I couldn't see part of the assembly. After taking the handle off and taking some snap shots with my phone, I found the broken piece.
The rubber piece goes on the inside door crash bar, it prevents window rubbing the bar. Mounts about 3/4 back the length of the door.
Please be patient, sometime is takes several days some times weeks to get a helpful response. But now that you are working it out, you will be able to help the next person.
Welcome to the forums, I will be going out to the garage tomorrow. I'll try to see what research I can do to help you out.
