Inside Door Handle

On our 2003 Concorde LXi, the driver's side inside door handle has been cracking for a year or so. It finally gave up and broke. I tried gluing it when the crack started -- massive fail.

We had to replace the one on the passenger's side a few years back, and as I recall, the cost was surprisingly high (over $200 for the piece of plastic). But that was probably Mopar, and I expect it's no longer available anyway.

So has anybody got a recommendation? Are any of the aftermarket ones any good?

Thanks!

Is it just the handle? Or are you talking about the "Cup" mounted to the door panel with the handle, etc.

What color is the door handle?

It's the "cup". Sorry, I didn't get a picture earlier. Here's one:

You're better off looking for an entire door panel.

Even if you could find the Cup assembly it's plastic welded to the back of the door panel and you'd have to be able to remove the old one and melt the "new" one onto the back of the door panel.

Check Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market

Search for Interior Trim Panel, Door (Front) Enter your Zip code then sort by distance/price.

Last time I ran a bunch of the door handle part numbers they were discontinued and very expensive, there is a TSB where they are available separate, best bet is finding someone parting a car or a junkyard. I do know that Dorman does make the door handles with bezels but not sure if they have wood ones, probably just regular colors like for Intrepids

You might search the obsolete Chrysler part nos. on ebay and look for new-old OEM stock being liquidated.

Thank you! I have found at least one place that has a NOS one. But it's around $300...urk.

Meanwhile, I think I'm going to try some double-sided foam tape, and see what happens. It may not look so great, but it's an old car anyway. At worst, I'm out $7.00.

Heh... just don't lose that piece of plastic that goes across the back of the hood! It's in the $300 range, too.

I live in Texas. Plastic should be illegal in Texas. It doesn't matter what they say, plastic doesn't hold up here.

Well, that was a massive FAIL. To begin with, I didn't pay appropriate heed to the fact that the door panel has been treated, probably many times through the years, with substances containing silicones. Uh, nothing sticks to that.

Right. Next? :-) Staring at this thing trying to figure out how to rig it on the cheap....
