Dutch Door handle broken

Dutch Door handle broken

Postby binder [OP] » December 29th 2009, 7:56pm

Happy New Year

I have a 98 Astrovan with a broken handle for the dutch doors. It was really cold this morning and i pulled a bit to hard and the metal handle cracked and broke off. I assume i have to remove the interior trim to get at it? Is there a way i can open the door for now? Also if anyone has a diagram or part number for the handle that would be great. Any other info like where I can get one cheap in the Ottawa area would be great! I assume the junkyard would be the best place unless a new one is not too expensive?

Thanks
Bob

Which handle is it...the left or the right?
If it is the right, you can stick a small long screwdriver beside the handle and pry up on the rods to open the door.
For the left, you have to pull the interior trim off first.
