I ordered the part in the middle of the afternoon. It was already in my mailbox the next day. The part was exact to the original and installation was a breeze. Thank you 1AAuto. I have used your services before and will continue to do so. The local parts stores in our area have to order most parts. I cut out the middle man.

Tailgate handle
My tailgate stop working on my 1990 F250. I look up the video on 1A Auto on replacing the handle. I ordered the handle, which came in a couple of days, and easily place the new handle on. It works like a charm now!

I need to replace the tailgate handle on my 89 F-250. The part # on the back of my handle is E7TB-99431B84-A. There is also an offset C after the A which I assume means Canada which is also stamped on the back of the handle. The latching mechinism that the handle operates is identicle to the one in my truck. Will your part # 1ABTH00007 be a workable replacement?

BEST ANSWER: Greetings, I used the replacement handle on my 91 F250 4x4 Lariat. The handle is a simple cast and simply engages the two side cables when pulled. After removing the inside access panel it was simple. That handle should fit your 89 but I am cautiously optimistic. Pull the old one off and match it side by side to be sure. If it doesn't match send it back for a refund. Also be sure of your vendor and check their return/refund policy. Hope this helps.....
I have a 2008 Mazda B3000. I'm looking to replace the plastic handle that looks much like part # 1abth00042. Will this part fit my tailgate?
