2006 Explorer exterior door handle
Excellent quality. Fit like a glove. Installed exactly like the 1AAuto YouTube video demonstrated.

This handle for my '04 Ford Explorer was a perfect replacement match and fit just like the original. Better yet, it was one third the price that my local Ford dealer was charging AND I got it quicker than I could have from the dealer. Best of all was the installation video. It was "spot on"! I had the handle installed in about 25 minutes and probably saved a hundred bucks in labor!!! Thanks 1A Auto. You have a new loyal customer.
