[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

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i wished it was originally made with metal re-enforcement. 5mmx3mm of plastic is not the strongest at the thinnest point.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

    • Remote help for 350Z
      By me123 · Posted
      Hey I just did this and it wasn't quite like all the instructions say. Do the key six times and the doors unlock, now lock the doors using the manual lock by the door handle - not the electronic lock button down by the window controls. Press a button on the remote and the doors will unlock to signal it has paired.  I think I had to put the key to acc and lock the doors quickly after doing the six inserts, then the remote could be pressed without rushing.

      3.9 you won't really notice the SRM but with 4.08 you will. ECUTEK tune can correct it

      Sorry for the revival of this post but US 370Z owners who did the FD change notes that SRM is off by a couple hundred rpms. To those with a local manual 370z with a 3.9/4.08 FD, do you guys suffer a similar issue? And if so, how did you rectify it?

      I use a Miccus Mini-Jack RTX if you want another alternative, another member at a meet had the older model (Mini-jack RX).

      The main thing is to look out for a Bluetooth receiver that supports A2DP, but doesn't support HFC, this will ensure it doesn't interfere with the car's bluetooth for calls (HFC = handsfree calls, A2DP is for audio streaming). I'm using an iPhoine 8 with it, and have used a 6s and various other friend's phones (iPhone 7's, Google Nexus devices etc) without any issues.

      If you're looking at the Miccus options, the one I chose has some more modern audio codecs than the older one (APT-X, etc), which in theory means better audio.
