Okay so it's been really cold here in Pa lately, like 2 deg. So on Saturday night I go out to my car to start it up, I pull the the handle on the drivers side and low and behold I hear all these little pieces break and fall down in the inside of the door...
.
So now the door won't open at all now and I have to get in the car on the passenger side GTA style.

Does anyone know what the hell just happend to my door? I obviously know that I'm going to have to take it apart but why would the cold make that happen? Whats in there thats so fragile that could snap under extreme cold?
Thanks
Ryan

Re: Door handle breaking... (Corrado92vw)

They regularly break under normal conditions, and when things are cold, stuff like door handles, control knobs, etc are even more easy to break. The door handles on my Passat sometimes refuse to work in the cold, though none of them are outright broken.
Time to hit up the dealer or the classifieds!
