Having the right set of door handles on your Toyota or Scion can make all the difference. They do more than make opening and closing a door easier, too. They can also give your ride a customized look -- one that captures attention. Most drivers don't, however, readily realize how different the two types -- exterior and interior -- actually are. The same goes for the different materials they're made of and the fact that they work with more than just door locks.
For example, some exterior door handles stick out, while others are built flush into body panels, following vehicular contours. Interior door handles, however, are usually inset, and they almost never protrude from interior door panels.
Moreover, outside door handles are usually made of steel or metal alloys like aluminum, zinc, or magnesium. Many luxury cars can even have chrome handles. A lot of inside door handles, on the other hand, come made of durable plastic. Both kinds, however, can be made to work with an electronic entry pad, often found on an exterior door panel; you enter codes into them or scan fingerprints to gain entry to your car.
How does a door handle actually work, though? As expected, it's uncomplicated. A rotor spins, turning a set of teeth and latching or unlatching a lock with a striker. If your door handles are jammed, wobbly, or otherwise not working correctly, they may be damaged or faulty; in this case, it's better to replace them. To figure out what might be happening, apply a lubricant first. Then, inspect the handle mechanism.
