Broken (snapped) door handle

Post by SydneyJules » Mon Sep 07, 2015 5:27 pm

So, the new door seals were so good, the passenger door handle snapped in half when I tried to open my door the other day.
I've bought a new handle, and I'm wondering if anyone has ever dismantled one to change the locks over.

It looks like some drilling of rivets is required - can anyone shed any light on this for me, before I ruin my parts?!

Thanks
Fixing it bit by bit....

You can take the handle to pieces but the problem is the barrel is pressed with two pins sticking through another plastic section . I have often glued these back when someone has forced the key in the barrel but not always successfully. I will take some pics of a handle I have in pieces .
If you have a new handle just get another key set made. Do you have guys who cut digital keys near you .
