[DIY] Interior - Passenger door handle

6 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

Hi all,

 

First post and it's a DIY!

 

Anyway. i brought a 350z with a broken interior passenger door handle (IPDH). i set about to fixingit after purchase but noticed it was hard to find a Left handed IPDH!

 

Tried eBay but had no luck. i found some on yahoo auction japan but it would set me back ~$120 to get it to Australia. For those that want a geunine replacement part number: 80979 cf50a

 

So what i did next was to repair and re-enforce the broken handle!

 

1. Go to Bunnings and buy "make a bracket - 20mm x 200mm x 1mm by Carinya" - $0.90aud

2. Mark the bend to match the handle.

 

 

3. hammer the bracket on the marked bend

4. Make sure it fits the handle

5. Cut of excess bit with Tin Snip or Gullotine

 

 

6. Fit it to the passenger door

7. Snap in the door handle cover

thanks!

 

i wished it was originally made with metal re-enforcement. 5mmx3mm of plastic is not the strongest at the thinnest point. originally i wanted to wrapped the whole handle with metal but it means i would had to make holes in the metal bracket to accormodate for the handle cover (did not have a holesaw/drill bit that could achieve this). maybe there will be a V2 when i am bored

    • Custom y-pipe and cat combination, I need help!
      By richiez · Posted
      Hey guys I need some help. I bought this car second hand, it has some work done to it but I'm unsure on the details. I'm trying to get a CBE for my car so I thought I'd look underneath. I know part of the exhaust have been replaced since it got sold to the dealership. It looks like the ypipe and cat are a one piece set up? And looks nothing like the stock stuff. What is this pipe? Is it custom? I'm guessing I can only buy a y-back exhaust at this stage unless I buy a CBE and a cat. Thanks!http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5cb9a7deea9ce/YouCut_20190419_204915267.mp4 Sent from my Pixel 3 XL using Tapatalk

      Hey mate I recently had a similar issue.  I ended up getting the NDS III app on my phone and did the idle 're learn but mine was not as bad as what you're describing.  I pulled an injector to try it to 're learn etc but idled around 700 rpm.
    • Write off advice
      By S3RG388 · Posted
      Hi All, I am new to the forums so it is very nice to meet you all and apologies if I am posting in the wrong section. Recently my 370z (2010 convertible auto) has been hit in the back and after a month of assessments and deliberations the insurance company decided it will be a write off due to high costs of repair needed for a full chassis rebuild in the rear. Now they have given me two options: 1 - Take the market value of 23k minus 1.6k of outstanding insurance payments for the period. So about 21.4k. 2 - Go through the other party's insurer, receive 23k - 3k salvage fee and keep the car. So 20k plus the car, which will not be roadworthy anymore. Could I ask for some of your advice, especially if you faced a similar situation in the past? Is it worth keeping the car with 20k, would I be able to sell it for parts or sell it as a whole? It's in a very good condition (minus the chassis and rear damage obviously), engine has done 94k and never had any problems.   Thank you very much for your advice in advance!!!
    • Passenger Seat Sensor
      By BlueZ · Posted
      Hello all, Well it's been a few years but It's good to see this forum is still up and running.  I notice the old Speedo thread is still active :-) So, I was driving with my wife today and she noticed that the seat belt warning didn't go off when she took of the belt as we pulled into the driveway.  I assume that it's the seat sensor.  It doesn't worry me too much but I'm wondering if it will affect the air bags.  Will they go off if it thinks there's no one in the seat? Thanks
