Interior Door Handle

1995 LS Coupe. The driver's interior door handle has been acting funny - it does not fully retract when released.

This morning, I almost could not open the door from inside. I pull the handle as far as it will go and it does not unlatch.

What is wrong? What broke? What parts do I need to replace?
How hard is this to get to? How do I access the mechanism?

Thanks!

Anyone know what years & models will fit the driver's interior door handle for a 1995 LS Coupe?

Thanks

WhiteLegend - yes - I'm interested in buying one. I'm trying to repair mine but I'm not optimistic. I tried to email you but no reply. Can you contact me: [email protected].

Thanks - John Ellis

Handle

I have had the back holder for the cable break. It is plastic. Careful that you don't break the chrome part. It is also made of cheap plastic (Acura should have used metal) . Anyways, I used duct tape and rigged it so the cable would still retract and open the door. IMO, foget trying to fix it if the plastic is broken. Which I bet 99% is the problem. Just go get another door handle. This time I am going to fill the plastic holes in the back with some steel nails or other substance to completly stiffen it. I highly recommend everyone else do the same if you don't want a busted door handle.

I had the little yellow clip that hold the cable in the handle break on me this past weekend. I tried to rig it but could not. I had to order the part from Acura. Funny thing is from 1991 to 1994 you cannot order the clip alone but you have to get the whole handle assy for $180.00. I had him check for 1995 and you could order just the clip. Funny how that works. Its the same exact thing. Good thing I had him search each model year. The clip is only $4.00.

That clips helps hold the door cable in the handle. Unless you rig it otherwise I think you do need it. I wish I knew you had some of course shipping would be costly from Germany to US for a 4.00 clip!

The handle needs to be ordered by year and color. The 1991 is only for 1991. The LT handle is about $160. The RT is $75. The LT assy is sold with door lock switch and seat memory module. In order to replace, you need to remove the inner door trim panel.

I fixed mine. the previous owner tried to glue it back with JB weld and it broke again. I made my own metal bracket care screwed it to the plastic. it works great.
