    Default DS Interior Door Handles

    Hi,
    does anyone know where you can buy new interior door handles other than Der Franzose?
    I have not been happy with theirs.

    Thanks Terry

    Hi Terry,
    I've bought mine through Andre Pol (Citroen Andre) and been very happy with the quality.
    Cheers,

    This is interesting.... For me especially for me, as I bought a set of 'short-knob' re-manufactured handles back in (2004?) and have yet to fit them - so have no idea how I'm going to get on.

    I'd always assumed that different suppliers were probably sourcing from the same manufacturer. I'm sure that is so in some cases - but not a universal truth. It would be handy to have some kind of a database/ list of what bits particular suppliers are making themselves or sourcing elsewhere and, where the buyer has choices, an idea of which parts are best and which to avoid.

    If it's a case of the chrome failing, they can be replated but you will need to remove the levers first. The pin for the small locking catch unscrews where the pin for the lever must either be drilled out or tapped and pulled out. Difficulty depends on how corroded everything is.

    Quality of the reproduction handles seems to vary from batch to batch as with all repro parts it seems.

    From a quality perspective, mine look great. Heavy. Brass? It's the fit of the casting I'm worried about
