Subject: [urq] Door Handle Group Buy?
I recently broke both the front and rear driver side door handle in the
last months. The rears are fairly in-expensive and don't fail as much
"and coupes / urq cars don't have rears.
But the fronts are bloody expensive. I got prices ranging from $30 -
$70 for a new one. The $70 being OE, the $30 being Chinese knockoff.
Well, as many people know the part that fails is the forked piece inside
that breaks. It seems to be plastic or something and just breaks not
allowing the lever to move the arm.
I might have a line on Replacement Forked pieces. I got one for my door
and I"m thinking, if there is enough interest, maybe I can buy 100 of
them. They are dual sided so the same arm works for either passenger or
Driver side door. Once your door handle is out, the swap is fairly
easy. You just take a small phillips or better yet a Driver/punch if
you have one and drive the old pin out. Then remove the arm, pay close
attention to the orientation of the SPRING before removing, and then
replace with the new part and pin but re-using the old spring.
Anyhow, just wondering if there is interest in this part for around $12
- $13. Maybe less. Its made of aluminum and seems to work. I'm going
to try and get about 4-of themf or spares for various 4kq/urq cars.
