Useful Tips to Help You Fix the Common Hummer H2 Door Handle Problems
Make sure that you pay attention to your Hummer H2 door handle. Although small, this component can have a lot of problems overtime. That's why it's important that you know what to do in case you experience some of the common door handle problems. Here are some useful tips to help you deal with them:
If the exterior and interior door handles on your Hummer H2 is plastic, you may find yourself muttering about the cracks on them. Worse, you may find that one of your handles have totally broken off. When this happens, you can consider fixing it yourself instead of buying a replacement right away. Loosening the bolt that holds the door handle in place will give you a better access to do this quick fix. However, remember to roll up your window to avoid damaging it. Connecting the cracked or broken pieces back to the body of the handle using a basic glue gun should work. Just don't forget to heat the glue and let it set first before using the handle. In the event this simple quick fix doesn't work, then you can start looking for a replacement part.
Whether plastic or aluminum, your door handle can have scratches overtime every time your keys, rings, fingernails, and whatnot rub against the surface, underneath, around, or behind the door handles. Having these on your Hummer can be a real eyesore, so make sure to cover these up with polish and other scratch-removal compounds. Keep in mind that dirt can buildup along the scratch lines, especially when they're deep. Also, scratches on aluminum door handles may still develop into rust overtime.
Rust stains and spots
You may notice rust stains at the corner of your exterior door handle. If this happens, you may want to check the inside of your door panel and look for any rusted screw as this may be the cause of the stain. If you've found the culprit, make sure to clean the stains with any effective polishing compound. However, if you have rust spots on your door handle, you should apply rust remover and gently scrub them off. It's also best to coat all door handles on your H2 with sealant to slow down the problem, although this wouldn't completely prevent rust again.
