Broken Exterior Door Handles Y Reg Ford Fiesta

4 posts in this topic

Hello,

I really need some advice - bearing in mind that I know nothing about cars, both my drivers and passenger side exterior door handles are broken, I have to get in via the boot at the moment - the garage have quoted me £40 plus vat per side plus labour to fix them but I'm loathe to pay that - can anyone advise me how I could fix this myself please?

I'd really appreciate the help :)

You have to remove the interior door panel if I remember as the handles are screwed on. And you will have to get some new handles too as the plastic eye on them snaps.

Thanks for that, I'm pretty sure they've snapped cos they are just totally loose when you pull them up. To fit the new handles then, is it just a matter of removing the old one and !Removed! the new one in? Apologies, I don't know much about cars, but i really wanna learn to do stuff myself :)

its a common problem they do it as the car gets older, normally oiling them before they snap works, because the eye is quite thin and plastic gets brittle it breaks. my dads had loads of mk4 fiestas and they have all gone
