Can I buy one handle, not 25!!

Post by Wilson van on Thu Jul 27, 2017 8:51 pm

I have a second hand Peugeot Partner Mazan LL, registered 2009.  The handle flap on the back door has broken, meaning the door cannot be opened from the outside and only by climbing through the cab & opening it from inside.
Cheltenham Laminates, who supplied replacement inner latch do not stock external handle & sent me to Weston Body Hardware (the manufacturers).....they only sell in bulk & so tried their distributors, who do sell individual parts to the public in theory, but only if they have them in stock.  If you need them to order it, then you can only do so in bulk.  I've also tried Ebay & other secondhand sites.  Very frustrating, as I know the part exists, but no-one will sell me one.  Any ideas gratefully received.  Here's the page from the WBH catalogue showing the handle.

That is a handle from a Morris Marina. They were used on most monocoque bodied Auto-Sleepers. I had a new unused one until recently when I sold it to a member on here.
They sometimes appear on eBay, just make sure it is the correct 'hand' you need. The same handle was used on TR7's as well, so search for those as well.

Check out the early Land Rover Disco handle, loads in breakers yards and on ebay.

Used on a number of vehicles, the most exotic probably being the Lotus Espirit Turbo, I'm not sure they were not also used on Scimitars.

Try and find a Marina though as they are bound to be cheaper.

Also consider a visiting a few auto jumbles.

An alternative approach is to find out the minimum quantity that they will sell you and, if the price is good, to buy a batch and sell the remainder on Ebay!

I did that with oil filters for my (slightly) unusual car - when I found that "specialists" in the UK want £22 each here but you could buy them in bulk from the US at $6 each, I bought a whole load and flogged the remainder online. It could be an opportunity to make some cash if you know there's a demand...
