Why Won't Your Car Door Handle Work?

There are a lot of reasons for car door handles to stop working. If it's visibly broken, the answer to why it's not working is obvious. However, it's more common for a bad door handle to look normal and just not open the door the way it's supposed to. In this case, the problem may have to do with the linkage tying the handle to the latch and locking mechanisms. Linkage and clips that are bent or broken are typically easy to address, but it does require removing the door panel and working in the cramped space inside the door. Fortunately, factory-trained technicians like those in our Subaru service center can usually make quick work of it.

Will You Need to Have a Bad Car Door Handle Replaced Completely?

If the handle is visibly broken, then chances are that you'll need to have the entire handle assembly replaced. In rare cases, the points where the handle assembly attaches to the linkage can be broken and render the whole unit useless. This is where a well-stocked OEM parts department comes in handy. If you drive a Subaru, we've got just such a department right here in our facilities at Hanson Subaru in Olympia.
