Michael asks…

How much will it cost to repair an exterior door handle on a 2007 Focus?

My drivers door won’t open from the outside but still opens from the inside. How much am I looking at to repair the exterior handle?

Aklymroofing answers:

Probably about an hour labor, and the part that breaks on this car is about 50 bucks. So roughly $125 parts and labor

Mark asks…

I want to install a dog door but our exterior door is metal, can it be installed in a metal door?

I’ve read the installation instructions and they seem easy enough to install if the door was wood but I just don’t know about this metal door. Would a jigsaw cut through a metal door?

Aklymroofing answers:

You may want to try posting this in the DIY/Home & Repair section of Yahoo answers. You’ll probably get better insight/input.

I’m not good with any kind of construction so I can’t help you there. Sorry!

how much to replace drivers front exterior door handle?

my exterior door handle snapped off this morning…on my citroen xsara … could anyone tell me how much this would cost to replace.. and are they easy to fit ???….. how much would it cost at local garage to replace….. cheers

Aklymroofing answers:

Getting the part new or used from an auto wrecker? Maybe an auto parts store may have an after market part, just need to call. Part could vary if from a dealer could be $50 or from an auto wrecker $5. To replace at a garage or body shop $80-100 labor only.

Jenny asks…

Where can i can I buy new exterior plastic door panels for a 2003 Saturn ion-2?

I need rear door panels for my car, but i have no clue where to get them. Saturn’s panels come off from the outside, however i need jsut the plastic covering not the whole door itself.

Aklymroofing answers:

Probably any place that sells the old fashioned steel panels and fenders and such.
The place I go is local, but a Google search for “auto body panels” turns up quite a few places. Including both mail order, and if like me, Google knows where you are, probably places local to you.

Actually, now that I look, the place I go does have multiple locations, all around the world!

Ruth asks…

When it becomes cooler out my exterior metal door is harder to turn the dead bolt .?

It is hard to turn all the way I have tries wd 40 AND A LOCK SPRAY BUT IT IS STILL HARD TO TURN COMPLETELY. THE DOOR PROBABLY SWELLS WITH THE COLDER WEATHER. I DO NOT KNOW. ANY SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO FIX?

Aklymroofing answers:

The door would contract in the cool and swell in the heat.
