Door Handle

Post by PeteVX16 » Tue Jul 17, 2018 4:02 pm

Hi all. I have a problem as the 'triangular' shaped end block on the drivers door handle has become detached. I have the remote locking so normally the lock barrel is covered by the plastic cover. Luckily I noticed before driving off so still have the block. Possibility that a plastic lock tab has broken off as no other means of attachment are visible, perhaps someone has knowledge on this? I have booked an appointment next week with my dealer. The electrical and mechanical functionality are still ok as long as the long handle part is fully located to the right...… as this happened in the south of France at the weekend on our way home from holiday I am really pleased that it all remained useable, would be really annoyed to have had to leave the car behind whilst fixed.



1.6T 200 Elite. Advanced park assist. LED tail lights. Powered AGR driver seat. Keyless entry and start. Spacesaver wheel. Pearlescent asteroid grey.

Astra, the way forward.

Seems like there could be a design fault as this poster has a similar problem ... 900#p42900

Same here, an hour apart in posts! Freaky!
Let me know what happens once you’ve gone to the dealer as I want to know if it’s somwthing they will repair for me or if this is ‘normal’
