    Today has been a terrible day for me.

    But one of the reasons why is that literally BOTH of my door handles broke. I had to crawl in my car from the trunk.

    Anybody know where I can buy some door handles?

    I have to crawl in from my trunk every single day until I get the handles. all of the cars are moved around in just the perfect order to where I can't use any other car. I have no choice.

    Dorman has them for something like $9, they didn’t look perfectly straight to me though. You can still get oem for around $90.

    The Dorman units are junk, but they might last long enough to source better parts and keep you from climbing in through the trunk while you wait for them.

    I was able to get them at Advanced Auto Parts.

    They were in stock for 11 years :tease:

    And it actually turned out to be an easy fix:thumb:

    Those wont last. Consider it a temporary solution.

    Yea I only paid $20 for them anyway. I guess if it breaks again I have no choice but to spend more money.

    Somebody save me some billet aluminum!

    My Dorman drivers side has lasted 7 years now, I hope it breaks cuz I have an oem one ready to go and the cheap one looks a little warped.

    I'm shocked. The one I installed was so flimsy I only felt comfortable holding it close to the key. I pulled it an put an OEM handle on.

    Soon, I held off painting it because it was so warped out of the box. I’m always fixing something more vital than the handle it seems

    My new one seems fine. It's not warped, and feels decent when I pull on it. Of course I can tell it's cheap but I mean it works. :sneaky:
