How much does a Toyota Corolla door handle cost?
Answer: A good outside handle costs around $31-$34 individually, while a handle for the interior is cheaper around $18-$27. For a pair of outside door handles, it will cost $60, and a set of 2 interior handles is $54. These prices are the best matches in the market today.
Is it necessary to remove the interior door handle when working on the speakers of a Toyota Corolla?
Answer: The interior door handle may or may not be removed because the screws that are recessed in the door handle are the things that need to be detached. If, however, the door handle is blocking the wiring of the speakers, then remove it, so the wires can be placed properly.
Is the door handle of a certain Toyota Corolla applicable with the other versions of the same model?
Answer: The door handle of a 1998 version of the Toyota Corolla is only applicable for 1999 to 2002 models since they belong in the same generation of Corollas. To know if other parts are applicable to other models, refer to their generation; it's most likely that they have the same parts because of their similar designs.
What are some styles of door handles that can replace the stock look of a Toyota Corolla door handle?
Answer: Since the stock door handle on a Toyota Corolla is a lift-back type, a pull type door handle is a good alternative. There's a lever type and a push button type, but it won't look great on a Corolla. Other car models have specific door handle styles as well; and there are some good ones that fit the style of a Corolla.
What's the best material that can remove the faded paint on a Toyota Corolla door handle?
Answer: Using sandpaper with 800 girt will definitely remove the faded paint cleanly. Also, don't forget to use it with soap and water. Remember to never use spray paint when painting the door handle because it will only crack in a short period of time.
