Door handle carrier. - HELP!!!

If you are describing what I think the one side of handle has a 1/8th turn (bayonet) lock and if the nubs wear off it will pull out

You should be able to replace the pull handle without taking the door apart.



The repair to the existing pull handle (a self-tapping screw and washer into the front mount point) will require removal of the door card...

You can reproduce the missinf nub with a self tapping screw, JB Weld and Dremel/file work.

Phew dunnit! tricky with no tools as we are in process of moving house and of course first things to go to new place are my tools! so had to find an allen key, I used one I had when assemble IKEA units, had to bend the end so i could easily turn round and round and remove the bolt faster, kids were late for school, i ended up breaking a light bulb too as it was too dark to see what I was doing and dropped the damn thing....after alot cursing it was indeed as you say, initially the whole thing popped off.....so pushed and held in position and the then tightened...all good back to the way it was before thanks flush with seal and door panel...the 1-2mmm gone!!!!!

Great - well done. Many mechanics seem to miss details like this... but then, they ARE in a hurry when they are spending the customer's money!

hmmmm yup bit of an odd one this one, last 2 times this was done, I insisted on staying with the car at garage had no choice , the guy took an absolute AGE! he was pussyfooting about , i was in a right mind to tell him , Chris you told me there was a fixed price to this, if it takes 10mins as opposed to 1 hour i will still pay you what we agreed! it took him 1 hour cos he was farting around with other jobs too but he did it fine.....this time good ole father in law volunteered to take x5 to a mate of his sons....panel beater, he did it in 30mins....and left that 1-2mm gap PLUS wouldn't accept payment! but my father in law gave him 20euros....
