I figured out why our door handles are breakin. (after 2 for each side
)
Come to find out that the lock on the door (the gold cad. color box on the door) need to be lubed. Have you ever noticed that when you pull your door handle it is kinda hard to pull then it releases. Well I tried everything from adjusting the handle to adj. the lock
well i lubed the door lock with grease NOT WD40 And TA DA the door opens so smooth like butter no problem with pull or sticking

I did my other 2 friends Raddos and they noticed a big change http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
make sure you lube the lock on the door (the gold cad. color box on the door) and you need not worry about your handles breaking http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Take the locking part off...the gold box....degrease it and clean it all out, then grease it up alot, then put it back togethor...it'll work way better....I do it on all my VW's, never had a broken handle, not once http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
