Has anyone here had to change their door handle(outside)? Can a door handle from xf or earlier x series be used or are they different? Is the much involved with changing them? besides the obvious of taking the door card off.

cheers

Yeah mate the early falcon xd to xf will fit. Its simple u just disconect it from inside the door and unscrew it and put the new one in and conect it back up its s**t easy!

i have done it on my XG many a times now, super cheap have them really cheap but the problem with the super cheap ones is that the hole u put the plastic clip into is on the wrong side so i drilled a new one and tried to put the plastic clip back in, yep u guessed it, i busted it good.
So be carefull, otherwise its a piss easy job!

I don`t think you can use XD-XF handles...XG was different to begin with...

IIRC I've read a post ages ago mentioning the latch assy for XG/XH is different due to the pull rod connection - XG/XH's use E series latches. Can't confirm that unfortunately.

Here's a similar thread: http://www.fordmods.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=1724

One thing you can do is adjust the striker on the door pillar - mark the outside of the striker with a pencil (so the original position is marked), undo the 2 torx screws, adjust and tighten, experiment with it and see if it improves things. E series strikers will fit, so you can grab a couple off the rear doors (less wear), and try them.
I've had my XH nearly 6 yrs, never had any hassle with the door handles.

Yep, XG/H are different to XF style...put `em side by side, youll see what I mean. there`s no need to modify anything, just buy an XH handle...make sure the hinges and bushes are in good shape and everything`s aligned...when will ppl quit saying "oh X is the same as Y", when they obviously don`t know...
