Dodge B350 Door Handle
Dealing with Dodge B350 Door Handle Problems
The door handle is one of the most overlooked automobile parts. Despite being used so often, car owners neglect to take care of it the way they do with other components and accessories. You could even say that it is almost taken for granted, considering how some people carelessly use a vehicle's door handle. They only pay close attention to it when it starts giving them a headache upon opening or closing their cars or when scratches spoil its finish. Here are tips on how to go about such issues with your Dodge B350 door handle:
Malfunctioning door handle
You may find yourself unable to open or close your vehicle's door that no matter how strongly you force it open, it just won't budge. In this case, you would have to remove the door handle and inspect it from the interior. Look for wires or cables connected to it and assess if they are already worn and need re-greasing.
When re-greasing the wires or cables, it would be better to use a spray grease rather than a WD40. A WD40 is actually more of a cleaner than a greaser. Make sure that you thoroughly clean them up to the interior. Also, check the wire connecting the door handle to the door. It must be properly clipped into a piece of metal or plastic. If not, then that would most likely be the reason for your door handle failure. The wire does not tense, which could also cause a loose feeling when you open the door. Replacing the clip or the door handle might be necessary.
Without you realizing it soon enough, you might have been using your door handle a bit too carelessly. All of a sudden, you notice annoying scratches on your door handle, which could have been due to harsh contact with fingernails, keys, or any metal stuff. You can remedy this minor nuisance by applying a polish or compound on the handle. Use a microfiber applicator and rub it in a circular motion. Make sure that there is just enough pressure. You may repeat the procedure until you reach your desired result.
