What are Exterior Door Handles and where are they Located?

An exterior door handle, quite simply, allows you to open the door(s) of your vehicle and get in. Every vehicle will at the very least have a driver side and passenger side exterior handle, and vehicles with rear doors will have exterior door handles for those as well, in addition to those in the front of the vehicle. Also, if your vehicle has a liftgate, tailgate or rear hatch, there will be another handle installed on the outside of the rear of the vehicle as well.

On most cars, trucks, SUVs and vans, the outside door handle is bolted to the outer door skin. Inside the door, the handle is attached to a connecting rod/link that moves the door latch. Over time, the latch can become worn due to lack of lubrication or excessive contaminates (dirt, grime, rust) in the mechanism. This wear puts more stress on the door handle parts because it requires more force to move. If the stress is too much for the handle to take, it can cause the handle to snap, which is not ideal. On vehicles that have the lock cylinder built into the exterior door handle, the handle may get damaged when the cylinder is struck due to thieves attempting to break in.

Need to Replace your Exterior Door Handle(s)?

As you may have guessed, your exterior door handles are used rather frequently - every time you get into your vehicle as a matter of fact. Thus, they are subject to and incur a great deal of general wear and tear over time, which may cause them to break. And let’s be honest - is there anything worse than a broken door handle on the outside of your vehicle? Don't you hate having to leave your window open in order to reach inside of your car or truck to pull the handle to get into it? Not only is this a big inconvenience but it leaves your vehicle extremely vulnerable to the weather and to thieves.
