Chevrolet V2500 Suburban Tailgate Handle
Solving Chevrolet V2500 Suburban Tailgate Handle Problems
Everything in your car is bound to get damaged except for the tailgate handle, you say? Unfortunately, we are here to tell you that the gods aren't that merciful. Even your Chevrolet V2500 Suburban tailgate handle can cause you problems. Here are three common problems with the handle to somehow help you with them and give you the chance to rub the problems back at those mocking gods.
The handle snapped
There are times when the gods seemed to have granted you super strength, giving you the ability to snap the handle when you pull it. Sudden pulls and tough grips on the tailgate handle can cause it snap; most handles are made of plastic so they aren't very sturdy.
For most car owners, the case of a snapped handle is just a small chip on the side which makes the problem hard to notice. Superglue is the typical solution for snapped handles but that would depend on how big the chip is or how obsessive you are with your car's look.
The handle got loose
There are also times when the gods just decided to have fun and see to it that your Chevrolet V2500 Suburban tailgate handle hang loosely on the assembly. This is a usually experienced by secondhand car owners because a loose handle means that the tailgate handle and cover are incompatible.
The entire tailgate assembly needs to be compatible with your car model and year variation. If a part of the assembly is loose, then you likely got one part wrong. It would be best to check the specs of each part to see which needs to be replaced. But if the entire assembly is loose, then you got nothing right. It is best to have someone else do the fitting for you.
The handle melted
By the time that you pissed the gods off by properly taking care of the handle, the gods just go all out and melt it. The constant exposure to the sun's rays is enough to slowly weaken the plastic handle. A melted handle would feel like oil or tar was smeared on it whenever you touch it. There isn't actually a way to avoid this so you could best ensure that you park the car indoors as much as possible.
