Specifications:

  • LH (Driver Side) FRONT or REAR
  • Direct replacement
  • Built to strict quality control standards
  • Replace the handle and mounting bracket without replacing the complete door

When these vehicles were originally designed, properly replacing the complete door handle required the purchase of a new door panel from the dealership.  This repair kit solves that problem by including all the specialty installation hardware and tools required to fix the real problem at a fraction of the cost.

Time will tell on true quality
I was very surprised to see what this kit truly consisted of. When you use the drill bit to drill out the plastic rivets it leaves very little shaft left for the new screw to cut into. But then you realise that the 10mm bolt that goes through the new bracket hole is what really holds it all together. So it just needs to stay in place until the door panel is bolted back on.
One other issue is that the new door handle doesn't want to go on the new metal shaft easy, and because the door handle bracket is barely held on the back it can push the metal shaft back into the door panel. I had to hold the shaft still using needle nose pliers to press on the handle. It's all on and working but I am skeptical of its longevity.

Silverado door handle repair
This part worked excellent for me. The dealership quoted the repair for $700, because they said that they would have to replace the whole door pannel. This kit worked excellent and saved me a ton of money. It was easy to install, and has been durable so far.

Thank you 1A Auto for the video installation instructions.

Interior door handle, Silverador Pickup
The video for installation was very instructive. This lead me to decide to replace the interior door handle rather than having a shop perform the work. The replacement went well. There was a small issue with getting the handle itself placed on the metal lever. Had to file the lever down a fraction to allow the handle to slip onto the assemble. Small hiccup but other than that, it works very well.

door handle replacement kit and video
Following the video made it a quick job replacing the handle (the dealer told me was going to be $210 labor and the entire
panel at about $400 for a total of $610)...The only hiccup was the cable fastening procedure...wound up having to use some epoxy glue to seat the cable properly having snapped off a piece of plastic trying to redo it.

Response from 1A Auto
Thanks for the review! The handles are repair kits so they will usually not be an 'exact fit', but it should have just installed with the included hardware. We apologize for any inconvenience and would like to re-affirm the part is still covered under warranty. Please contact us if you have any other questions. Thank you!
