If I couldn't SEE it or FEEL it, I wouldn't pay for it!!chumster said:WD-40 definitely helped, thanks Smoking!!
I went to 2 body shops and both places insist that there is a dent on both doors. I cannot see/feel it.
Anyway, I got 3 estimates: $400, $650 and... $20. ??? The last one is for just touching up; the guy said it is not going to look perfect but pretty good.
But that's for the door panels only. The handle is beyond fixing so I will live with it until I find one on Ebay or junk yard...
In the nit pick area people have complained that they thought the door locks inside that you push down in the old days to manually lock your doors looked cheap and plastic to them.Smokin SRX said:Plastic door locks? didn't know............where?
Sort of like Gumby and Pokey then huh?rockyp said:I park my 'clave in the garage with the front windows down so air can circulate through the car all night. In the morning, I walk to the passenger side and toss (well, gently place : ) my computer backpack into the passenger seat, then walk around, get in drive off, etc...
Anyway, a few days ago, while "gently placing" my backpack through the open window, one of the shoulder straps caught the door lock "button" and bent it 90 degrees. Needless to say, it wouldn't lock. So I "gently" pulled on and bent the button back into position, and it is fine now.
The point of my dumb story is that the lock seems to have a metal inner shaft, 'cause I don't think a plastic button would have behaved quite that way. And that's kind of a pointless point - must be a slow day... :eyebrow:
OK. Got it. THKS!bsox said:In the nit pick area people have complained that they thought the door locks inside that you push down in the old days to manually lock your doors looked cheap and plastic to them.
