    Re: inside door handle

    All done, took all of 5 minutes...Ace Hardware metal repair tape to the rescue!

    Before



    After



    Not an exact match but it's a hell of a lot better than razor sharp edges waiting to slice you every time you get out...

    And to me, this method made way more sense than removing the door panel and drilling out a plastic rivet to replace the handle...No thank you!

    Thanks for the idea Dk!

    Re: inside door handle

    Funny this thread came back up, I just replaced the handles on both cars last week while I was off work. My wife cut her hand the other week on hers and when I was getting tires at the Cadillac dealer recently the SA saw the tape on mine and just shook his head, so I went ahead and ordered 2 from RockAuto. They were only $34 a piece and were very easy to install.

    Re: inside door handle

    I've R&R'd door panels here and there for years and am always nervous there will be a rattle when I reinstall. Does anyone do anything special while reinstalling to eliminate that chance or road noise coming from the door panels??
