Inside driver door handle problem?!?!

Recommended Posts

Closed my door yesterday on my 02' Porsche Boxster S to find that my inside door handle is loose making it where the car won't lock with the remote key but instead having to manually lock it from the outside. What would cause my inside driver door handle to come loose? Is there a broken piece inside the door panel cover holding the handle? If anyone has had this issue please reply with a solution to repairing it? Any help much appreciated! Thx, Phillip

You have a broke spring that connects to the door handle. Very common problem and best part, costs $0 to fix!

Follow instructions to remove door panel (make sure you disconnect battery due to side air bag).

You will see your busted spring. Most likely,on one end of the spring, the "U" shape will be busted. The the spring out and bend a new "U" in the broke end and reattach. That simple!

Of course, if you are a big spender, you can always source a new spring, but this fix will work without issue.
