Its been a while, but I have been on and chatted with some of you before.
Someone attempted to nick my motor the other night. :x :x The lock is smashed, but failed, so they wrenched the door handle off. The door itself isn't dented or bent, but I need to replace the handle and lock on the drivers side.
I dont mind if I have to have a seperate key for the lock, but need car back being secure as quick as possible.
Any ideas where I can get the handle and lock unit as cheap as possible? I dont want to pay over the odds.
Also, would it be a cheaper alternative to get a replacement MX-5 handle and lock? I've read on here somewhere that they fit?
Thanks in advance
**Mk2 MX-5 handles do indeed fit. Of course, they'll come with their own lock, which means a separate key for driver's side and ignition.
you're not wrong!!
so which option is most 'economically effective'…lol
would it be cheaper to go for mx3 or mx5 handles?
what year/reg range would I be looking at for a MK2 mx5?
Mk2 (also called NB/NB.5) is 1998 to 2005 - though bear in mind that Mk1 (NA) also ended in 1998, and Mk3 (NC) started in 2005.
so 99 to 04 then.
Got it, cheers mate
do ford probe handles fit?
there seems to be a lot of reference on the internet to shared parts
Probe handles are totally different, They are situated on the edge of the door and you pull them out vertically not horizontally, plus they are a totally different shape.
Sorry to hear bout your car, but glad it held its own :p
Found someone breaking an mx3 in birmingham, so I managed to get a new handle, lock and key for £30. Mazcare were asking over 200 notes!!
