The scourge of crappy door handles

Post by Guest on Mon Jan 10, 2011 11:33 pm

I was just wondering if anyone has ever succesfully fitted different door handles to the sliding doors? my second one has gone now and they are such a crappy design I'm loath to pay out for two new ones. Do the Rascals, Carrys handles fit? Cheers guys and gals Very Happy

Paid for a pair of handles on Friday, they arrived on Saturday. If the rain(!) stops they might get fitted today!

Thanks to Sean, www.hijetparts.co.uk

Finally got round to fitting one handle today - two tips to offer while fresh in my mind...

1) One bolt attaching handle was longer than the other - short one is the top one.

2) When replacing the inner door handle, put the clip in position on the handle, line the handle up so it's pointing up and just give it a firm push. (Pity that doesn't work when trying to get the darn thing off though)
