Smile Passenger Side Door Handle Grip (inside)

Hey Guys, the door handle for passenger side of my z has broken from the top and looks really ugly. I've found people selling them in the US but no one in Oz seems to carry them. Anyone know of any suppliers that keep these inside door handles for RHD? (the C shape handle that goes on the inside with the chrome cover)

I'm also in need of a passenger side window motor which on ebay US are going for a bit over $200 (for a LHD) but I'm confused as which one to buy, the drivers side or passengers side because my passenger side is their drivers side.

Thanks in advance.

to Tech!

I bought a replacement Jesus handle from my dealer as it work out justas expensive as getting a rhd one from anywhere else. I'll check to see ig it was just the silver or whole handle tonight.

I also just had delivered new window motors. Just tell them what side of the car you need rather than driver/passenger

Hope this helps

My passenger door handle cost around 80 bucks, but I used my old silver bit. Got it through Nissan Aus but they had to order it in from Japan.

Thanks Guys. Whats a Jesus Handle and how much was it? Haven't heard that type before, lol. The OEM motors are going for around $210 in the US but Nissan quoted me $800, so my concern is if the sellers are selling aftermarket motors with Nissan packaging or are they genuine motors?

$80 sounds alright as Nissan quoted me over $200 with the Silver finisher?? Maybe I should ring them again and double check.

Silly point, but am I right in thinking that a passenger side door handle from a LHD will not fit the passenger side of a RHD?

Cheers

Jesus handle is the passenger handle. When you have someone riding shotgun and you go around a corner they usually yell "Jesus!!!" while holding on for life.

I paid $80 as well but not sure which bits it came with.

Correct about LHD and RHD. Different shape so need to buy locally, Japan or UK.

Oh ok, 'Jesus Handles' makes sense now, hehehe.

Will give a few Nissan dealers a call next week and hopefully sort one out.

So with the window motors, its safe to buy one from ebay for a couple of hundred?

I'd prefer a new one than taking it out and cleaning it on a weekly basis, lol.

Thanks Guys
