How many times each day do you use the door handles on your car, truck, or SUV? You may have never even thought about it, but your door handles are used quite frequently. Like other moving parts, the more they are used, the more wear and tear they are going to incur. Of course, we don't think you should stop using your door handles altogether; that would be just plain silly. However, paying some attention to the condition of your door handles may keep you from an unpleasant period when one or more of them stop working. Keep in mind that you have more than one door handle for each door of your vehicle. Your side doors have both an inner and an outer door handle, and if you have a tailgate or hatchback, there is another handle installed on the rear of your vehicle. Typically, door handles are either metal or plastic, and work in conjunction with toothed wheels called rotors installed in the side panels of your doors. These rotors are also responsible for keeping your vehicle safe, as they do not move when your door locks are engaged. When just one of your door handles breaks, it can be a real inconvenience. For instance, if your interior driver's side door handle is not working, you are going to have to either roll down your window and try to open the door from the outside or slide across to the passenger's side to get out of your vehicle. If your door handles start to rust, loosen, or stiffen through use, don't wait to order new door handles or a door handle repair kit from our online catalogue.

Instructions for DIY Door Handle Installation
If you've ever experienced a jammed or stuck car door handle, then you know how annoying it can be. Since the door handle is a frequently used part of the car with moving parts and constantly exposed to the elements, it is inevitable that it will wear down over time. Most people neglect the door handle and don't notice its deterioration until it gets stuck. Don't wait until you can't get in and out of your care easily. Check your door handles now and see if they need to be replaced. If they're busted, don't worry; repairing and replacing a broken car door handle is actually moderately easy. Let us show you how:
Difficulty level: Moderate
Tools you'll need
- Flathead screwdriver
- Phillips screwdriver
- Replacement inside door handle
- Always wear safety glasses or goggles so that harmful elements won't hit your eyes.
- Wear latex gloves and closed toe shoes when working; you'd want to avoid injury while working on your door handle.
Step 1: With the car windows fully up, remove the inside door panel. Using the Phillips screwdriver, unscrew the Phillips screws that hold the panel in place. If there are small plastic clips holding the panel, then you might want to use a flathead screwdriver to get the panel out of the clips. Remember to work carefully; you wouldn't want to damage the panel.
Step 2: Remove the door handle from the long handle wires, which connect to the pull system of the handle. With a little help from a friend, the wires could easily slip off the door handle.
Step 3: Using the Phillips screwdriver, unscrew the door handle and remove it.
Step 4: Mount the new door handle and screw it back in with a Phillips screwdriver. You can use the old screws from the old handle door if you wish to do so.
Step 5: Connect the door handle back to the handle wires. After, test it to see if it works correctly.
Step 6: Mount the door panel and screw it back into place.
And voila! Your new car door installation is now done. Now you can get in and out of your car easily and hassle-free!
