Re: Broken Door Handle Articulator (hinge) Repair

Morning all! Have an issue with the door handle (see image). At first I was thinking of trying to stick with superglue But would you simply recommend I change the door handle? Door opens without issues for now !

Re: Broken Door Handle Articulator (hinge) Repair

just the articulated hinge inside the handle ,, the piece on the right in gaurav500 s photo , theres a little hinge inside that snaps, i saw a spring on the other side ( inside the door) but dont remember any tutorials mentionning anything about it. i did have a problem with the rear wiper spring... ( maybe they make bad springs?)

Re: Broken Door Handle Articulator (hinge) Repair

Thanks for the pdf and tips, managed to fix it this afternoon! Some tips from me:

1. Get yourself some plastic trim removal tools, inexpensive and help a lot!
2. Use a small mirror, helped me to locate where the screw on the hinge goes and then locate where the door card plugs need to go back
3. For the hinge screw I tightened by hand with a PZ screw bit, but then fully tightened from the ‘inside’.
4. Be patient! Disassembly was a doddle but putting it back, especially the hinge itself and the door card was a pain with a lot of swearing involved! If you can ask someone to help it would make it easier.
