Well I didnt answer your first question .. do you remember the expert that did, reply with his name and I'll post it where he can find it..

To make a handle out of steel.. well I can think of 2 ways

1.) u need a piece of Flat 1/8 or 1/6 steel bar
2.) cut the basic shape out
3.) weld the parts together (dont forget the inner piece)
4.) bore holes
5.) attach,,

The Second way is to get a machine shop to fabricate it out of aluminum..

But why dont you just go to a scrap yard and get a replacement ?? Several models even different vehicles basically use similar components. If u tahe the old one with you and a picture I'm sure you would get a proper replacement and Cheaper that actually making one!!..

The exterior sliding door handle broke off. I purchased a new handle and began installing it. However, I can't figure our how the handle connects to the door latch assembly.

Maybe I lost a piece that connects the rod to the handle??


Yes, the rod actually goes to the latch mechanism it self which is linked by the inside/outside handle and the actual lock/unlock actuator. The rod needs to connect to your handle assembly and should hook onto it and usually is a plastic retainer th ... 2004 Toyota Sienna
