ScienceofSpeed has the solution for your broken door handles and door levers!

Broken door handle? We wanted to provide some details on what to look for when your door handle or door handle hinge lever breaks.

The door pull assembly consists of a plastic door pull "handle" and top and bottom cast metal hinge "levers". The bottom lever (indicated as "2") in the attached photo connects to the cable which actuates the release mechanism that allows the door to open. This is a common failure point. The cast metal levers are weak and commonly fail on the driver's side first, then the passenger side. We recreated this part out of CNC machined high strength billet 6061-T6. You may find this part here:

It is very unusual for the plastic door pull handle itself to break - however, it can happen. Most often, it looks as if the handle has broken because the lever attaches with two screws that are hidden with black colored decals that blends them in to the handle. The top lever, which acts purely as a hinge, rarely breaks as it doesn't take the load of the bottom hinge. However, should this break - or the plastic handle itself break - we offer a CNC machined replacement which combines the factory top lever and the plastic handle. This are incredibly detailed pieces which are CNC machined from 6061-T6, hand finished, then ceramic coated. The finish has been carefully selected to match the factory plastic finish - however, they are also available in other finishes that match our other interior accessories.

Should you have any questions, we're always here by phone (480-894-6277) or e-mail ([email protected]).

Science of speed. Luv these guys! Always coming up with great stuff!!! Door handle levers have already been upgraded on mine to their kits years ago but those looks as though it is completely new and a fix for future issues. Thumbs up...
