Hey fellas,

Has been a while since I was on here but unloaded the Fairlane bout 12 months back but have just picked up an 05 Falcon.

Anyways have only had it 2 weeks and a mate has managed to pull the handle clean off the inside trim of the passenger door...thought the door wasn't clesed properly so gave it a great yank and yeah well the rest is history...the gorrilla armed git.

So what's the go, can I just replace the handle or do I need to go the whole door trim thing? Reason I ask is that the handle itself seems to be attached with mushroom headed plugs (that are now clearly broken)...looking at the broken off handle I don't see how I am going to be able to put only a new handle on if these mushroom headed things are in place...does that make sense??

Hope yas can help, thanks eh.

If it is the Arm rest handle NO, that is ONLY available with the door trim.

Thanks Papa S,

It is like the grab handle part that also incorporates the window control switch. Iy has the 2 x screw that attach it but also has a series of those moulded plastic bit that appear to mushroom behind the trim to act as further secure points...I am sure I have seen the trim minus the handle for sale though eh.
