Exterior Car Door Handle Replacement Service

What is the Door Handle or Door Latch all about?

The car has at least two door handles per door: one on the inside and another on the outside. Due to frequent use, they will eventually break down and could need repair. Sometimes the handle itself is fine, but there is a problem with the door latch assembly that prevents the door from shutting and locking properly.

Keep in mind:

  • Sometimes the visible part of the door handle needs to be replaced, and sometimes the mechanism hidden inside the door needs to be replaced.
  • If the exterior door handle doesn’t work, there’s a good chance that the interior door handle is also faulty.
  • If physical damage (such as an accident) has caused the door handle to break, there may also be damage to the door lock switch or door lock actuator.

How it's done:

  • Remove the door panel to gain access.
  • Remove and replace the broken door handle.
  • Inspect door latch and replace if not working.
  • Check door for proper operation.
  • Reinstall door panel.

Our recommendation:

As soon as you notice that your door is having difficulty opening, you should schedule an inspection. If your exterior door handle stops working entirely, stop trying to use it: trying to force the door can cause further damage. If you notice that your exterior door handle is feeling fragile, you should also schedule an inspection.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Door Handle or Door Latch?

  • Door will not open.
  • Door will not shut.

How important is this service?

An exterior door handle exists so that you can open your vehicle from the outside. When the exterior door handle malfunctions, you’ll have to enter your vehicle from a different door, or keep your window rolled down so you can use the interior door handle (if it works). An exterior door handle that doesn’t work is a large nuisance to any driver.

Ford Focus - Exterior Door Handle Replacement (Driver Side Front) - Shawnee Mission, Kansas
Broken exterior drivers door handle, interconnected with the electric lock system, made access impossible. A true Ford design debacle, in my opinion. Car had to remain unlocked at all times to gain access since Ford only offers one door (drivers side) with a key. If locked, you had to enter through the trunk. Andrew brought several handle options to cover all bases. As it turned out, a complete new handle was not actually needed, although he had to take the entire door panel apart to discover the real problem. Several twists and turns were encountered, all of which he handled expertly and with good humor. Both time and cost expanded slightly, but totally in line with the unforeseen problems, and all was completely controlled by Andrew during the repair. The end result was a fully functional system. A skilled craftsman was sent and a skilled craftsman fixed the problem, in spite of the Ford design engineers.
