Door Handles

Postby tboy160 » Sat Jan 14, 2017 1:38 pm

I have broken several door handles. Some by me, some by others. I had this last one welded, the weld was a little off, so it wouldnt open the door. Then I realized there is an adjustment of the bar that actuates the door opening. Curious if this needed adjusting and was causing the handle to be pulled too far. I did adjust this. Hoping it solves all problems. If not, has anyone come up with a way to fix/alleviate/avoid this problem of handles breaking?

Properly adjusting the handle is one preventative measure. The other is to NOT try and heeman the door open under any circumstances. IE: Frozen shut, halfway unlocking while yanking the handle, drunken entry, and any other careless methodology.

With any car if the door is frozen shut, I use the handle to unlatch it but I will grab the door itself with my other hand and carefully work it open so I'm not stressing the handle.

Since owning Beretta's and grand prix's, becoming a consumer for de-icer products has been nothing but positive from my experiences. :D
