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i wished it was originally made with metal re-enforcement. 5mmx3mm of plastic is not the strongest at the thinnest point.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

      Hi Tony, just saw your post, although it is over 6 months old now. Did you end up getting your roof sorted? If so whereabouts. I own a Roadster, live in Newcastle and am having an issue with the deck lid hitting the roof 5th bow.Still opens and closes fine for now. It appears to be a very common problem as I have following the ongoing US 370z forum on this matter. There is actually a Nissan service bulletin out for this plus others for roof issues. Rodd

    • Mishimoto oil cooler my experience

      I removed the stock cooler when I fitted a 34 row fast intentions oil cooler last year. According to fast intentions the stock water cooled oil cooler will hinder the effects of a front mount air cooled oil cooler. There’s a thread explaining why they say it’s best to remove the stock cooler  when fitting a front mount cooler if you feel like googling it.
