Door Handle Help?

Postby fvkagi » Sun May 12, 2019 3:10 pm

I bought a ST185 project and the PO broke off the door handle... is there anyway to just throw in a new door handle without replacing the entire door? It also will not open from the inside haha. Thanks!

The handle can definitely be swapped, some not very good thieves tried to steal my car by smashing out the handle. While you've got it apart replace the little plastic clips that go on the ends of the metal rods, they like to break.

And any 5th Gen Celica door handle will work on an ST185. You may want to save your keyed tumbler for the new door handle as you will want to use the same key on that door as the rest of the car (I suspect that is important to you). If they are not available from Toyota, they should be readily available from a local salvage yard.

I did not get the tumbler for that handle, is there anyway a locksmith or something could help me out? If not I guess I will just have to trust the electronic lock... also thanks for the replies!
