The stationary door handle inside my drivers side came off.

Customer Question
The stationary door handle...

The stationary door handle inside my drivers side came off. The handle you use to close the door! I have the whole thing. It's a leather wrapped piece. it looks like the plastic on both ends broke. Can I just use a glue or construction adhesive to reattach? Or do I need to somehow use an armature to attach it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Okay, I'll connect you to the mechanic to go over that information regarding your car. Before I do, is there anything else you want him to know?

It's an Acura RL 2005. But still runs great.

Ok, that piece is screwed at the bottom from underneath the arm rest. To rescrew it, you will need to remove the door panel, then remove the armrest. At the top, it has a retaining pin and screw to hold it.

Depending on what is left of the handle, you may be able to rescrew it to the door armrest and door trim panel, or will need to replace it.

If you can take a photo of it and upload to here using the paperclip icon on your reply box toolbar, I can tell you what are the realistic options

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
