What broke you ask? My drivers side, and passenger side door handles, damnit. Has this happened to anyone else? Or do I just not know my own strength?

I guess I'll have to go to the dealer, eh? To get new ones?

I replaced my drivers outside handle in July. $40 CDN for the part and an hour of my time to install. Local wrecker had a bunch - really good shape for used !

The interior ones have white stress concentration marks on them, so they'll go sooner or later.... I'll be epoxying those back together when they do fail.

I know this story all to well. My ex girlfriend broke my passenger door handle cause she tried to open the door while it was still locked :slap: (does my car look like a ford escort?). I called her an asshole and laughed it off cause it was a stupid accident. Well about three weeks later I was getting out of my car and there was this loud snap, my door handle broke. All I heard was "now who's the asshole" :eek:

Ah good times, my ex is a dickhead, but so am I so we still get along well.

O shit let me stop rambling

Best bet go to a junk yard, thats how I replaced both of my broken handles :thumbup:
