    Default 72 240z exterior door handle rubber bits

    Does anyone have part numbers or a source for the rubber trim/bumpers for the exterior door handles? Mine are falling apart. Thanks, Dave

    Are you talking about the flat rubber that goes between the handle and door? If so, I think they are NLA, however you could make them out of a used inner tube.

    I made mine from some flat rubber left over from making my fuel filler flap. Could have been a bit thicker but quite good.

    Yep, that's what I'm looking for. Here's what mine looks like now:

    I'd still like to know what the part number is. I do have some sheet rubber and will try making a couple. The little raised bumpers on the lower-inner corners might be tricky, though.

    I had a look at my (European market) fiche, but the door pull rubber is not listed separately from the door handle itself (see attachment). I also checked on my JDM fiche and the door handle rubber is not listed separately. One assumes they are integral to the door handle assembly itself.

    My first thought was to say that you could NOT get them without buying a completely new handle assembly, but looking at that link to e-Bay had me change my mind.

    That is an excellent re-make, it may not be "perfect" but if you look at the picture posted by ironhelix, it's definitely better than nothing.

    Do take note however, that it WILL require disassembly of your door handle in order to put them on. Otherwise you need to cut them and re-glue them once in place. (RC Car owners have an isocyanate glue specifically for bonding rubber, this might be a good use for it so you don't disassemble your door handles.)

    The rubber does appear to be bonded to the handle. Anyone purchased new handles? If the rubber comes with the handle, it might be worth the $$$. The door handles are coming off anyhow for painting.

    I purchased new handles from black dragon that came with new rubber. The whole handle was like 25 bucks

    That's good news. New handles sounds like the way to go. I had one break about 15 years ago. They don't last forever.

    How well do the Black Dragon handles compare to your old handles? They're half the price of the Nissan parts.

    They look identical inside and out. When the first handle broke i bought a used OEM handle on eBay that appeared in perfect condition and it broke in exactly the same place just a few weeks later. Even side by side you would be hard pressed to find a difference between the BD and OEM handle.
