    This thing went in sooooo easy!! Once the old unit was removed it only took 5 minutes to hook up the handle and lock slide and I was done. After that it was just a quick slot alinement and it slid into place. Wow.

    It would have been nice if they had included a fastener to replace the pop rivet you have to remove from the old unit. It was ok for me since I knew that I'd need someway to secure it. I just replaced the pop rivet with another pop rivet, mainly because I couldn't find a self tapping screw to fit the hole in my junk box.
    I spent more time getting the door panel off and on than on installing the part!

    This thing would be fine except for one glaring flaw. The part on the bottom shaped like a shark fin pivots to lock and unlock the door whan the slider is moved up and down. It pivots on a rivet, and on the OEM handle the rivet is snug, but on this replacement the rivet is VERY loose and the piece flops around. I thought "hmm, I guess it will still work," but I was wrong. Door would not unlock unless slider was slammed upward. Had to take the door apart again, drill out the stupid rivet, and replace it with a screw and locking nut.

              Second one of I've purchased and installed. Looks like original (minus the wear), and fits perfectly. Check out youtube for videos on how to repair this handle yourself (there are many).

                      i was thinking this was going to a bad door handle because of the reviews on here and on other sites but despite what i read i ordered it because i havent had a door handle in around 2 years and i needed 10 bucks more to get 50 bucks off my order. i just put it on and its just like the original if not better. seems to be extremely durable and no modifications were required to put it on, if i had to say anything i would get some of those plastic things that hold the door panel on because you might break a few getting it off. btw i have a 1997 chevy silverado z71/k1500
