I've seen a bunch of those lately, usaully they're just missing, dunno what causes it, cheap parts I guess, they shouldn't give you any trouble we just replace them, no questions asked, under warranty of course.

Thats pretty crazy, I wonder if there is an aftermarket version, I'm guessing that putting the same shitty oem parts on there is just going to have it happen again.



But...how does one make a shitty washer of all things? Hell, I could make a better washer than that out of cardboard and duct tape... :anitoof:

spray some silicone lube in the crack around the door handle, like so:

How long does that last and where do you get that stuff?
don't know how long it lasts, i did it right before i traded. it cuts the friction between the two pieces of plastic which are making the squeak. any auto parts store should have it. i used delayed viscosity grease from kimball midwest, it comes out like a liquid then turns to grease.
