Default Trim part for 2004 TL

The small trim part that makes up the trailing end of the door handle on the
passenger side fell off our car. It's lost. The driver's side has a key
lock in it, I believe the passenger side does not. It's about 2 inches long,
and appears to snap onto the fitting.

What can I expect to pay for a replacement..?

About ten or fifteen bucks.

Your dealer will likely have to order it, as such a part is not
normally stocked. Delivery is usually next-day.

Thanks for that..! I might have been able to smoke out the part myself
with lots of searching, but someone here, often yourself, comes through
much quicker...

I hate to say it but it may not have fallen off. Some people have
been modifying their cars, replacing the drivers door piece with new
one from any of the other doors (without a hole). I've seen lots of
people on the acurazine forum asking for the part number to order
the correct color part without a hole. May be someone was to cheap to
order and helped themselves to yours. I get the impression that they
have to be pried off to replace them.

I hope I'm wrong!

My car is rarely anywhere unattended for long, but I can't say that didn't
happen. Thanks for the info...

Hi Larry,

At least two of mine fell off while washing the car. I had the first
replaced under warranty, the other ones, I just glued back on and never had
any more issues. It was clearly a design flaw on the early 2004 TLs.

Cheers,

- Russ in Santa Barbara

Glade to hear it's unlikely taken and may have come off by itself.
Maybe the replacement part has be modified to correct the problem.
When you replace it see if the new one stays on well. If not the base
of later models may have been improved upon to fix the problem.

They are attached firmly on my 2005 TL. I wash and wax it myself by
hand and see no sign of them coming loose.

The guys changing the driver door part with the non-holed part have to
pry it off if/when their remote battery goes dead. It hardly seems
worth while to make a such a small cosmetic modification that at some
point makes you use your key to pry the trim to get access to the lock
it covered.

Anyway, good luck!
