The door handle inside is a vital component of the car door, enabling the person to open the door and get out of the car.
A car door will have both an internal and an external handle. Most car door handles are made of strong plastic or metal. The inside door handle is the interior door handle on the rear door and is fixed to the inner door frame with the aid of bolts, which are hidden by the inner door panel.
Door handles work with a pulling and latch mechanism, and are usually attached to this mechanism by screws. The door handle mechanism consists of a latch, a toothed wheel and a rotor which are contained behind the door panel. When the door handle is opened this causes the latch to release. The person can apply pressure to the inside door handle and, holding on to the handle, push the door open (aided by the hinged mechanism of the door). The person can also pull the door shut with the help of the inside door handle.
There are many different shapes, styles, materials, finishes and colours when it comes to car door handles. Purchasing a inside door handle will ensure you get the right part, designed to fit the make and model of your vehicle. The inner door handle is usually designed to co-ordinate with the rest of the car's interior design. There are various car door handle accessories, which, like the door handles, are usually specific to car make and model, and not an option for all, such as a handle guard and handle cover.
If the inside rear door handle isn't functioning properly, sticking, jamming or refusing to open, it's a sign that you may need to replace the door handle inside with one that is compatible with your vehicle.
