I know :crazy: all I seem to post now are tales of woe about the W204! A recent thread on the Mercedes-Benz Club alerted me to this issue. Evidently the door handles on recent Mercedes are made of plastic instead of metal and prone to fatigue fracture. :eek: So far so good-- BUT --- evidently they are no longer available as a separate part and the entire door card has to be replaced at a cost of £374 plus fitting! If true this frankly just taking the p*ss! Documented here. Broken doorhandle... - MBWorld.org Forums thread also incudes a bodge fix.:thumb:
You have been warned ! Treat them thar door handles with respect!;)

R230 SLs do this, only the door cards are a grand.

People wanted cheap Mercedes Benz, and this is the result...
