FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo Door handle(s)

Hi all Im new to the site so just like to say hi(look up ) and that im recently the proud() owner of a 1.6SX bravo so will hopefully be on here to share my viewsexperiences with you all...quite often Till thentake care pplz

welcome. Im guessing by your title you are having a little trouble with perishing door handles It happens. The rubber handles corrode and split after time which leaves them looking a little tatty. The solution is to fit handles from the Marea which can be painted in the same colour of your car and do not perish. A guide on how to do this can be found here httpwww.bravo-guide.co.ukmod-a-bravo.htmhandle

Instead I peeled off the rubber around the barrel portion of the handles (not the pull part) and it looked quite good so I carefully applied translucent silica gel (same stuff you use around the kitchen tops) all the way around the black plastic surrounding the barrel. It actually looks very nice and forms a great seal but I was worried about it coming away from the metal so I cleaned the metal around the barrel plastic with alcohol (Isopropyl). There is some movement between the plastic and the door metal when you open the car door but it is minimal and the gel has held well. The overall result is that the lines of the door looks great and the modification doesnt look out of place Only time will tell as to how long itll last but it is a repair that can be done over and over again very cheaply. By the way Im still a fiat owner Replacement car No2 is a Brava 115 ELX with all the trimmings

yea they are astonishingly dificult to fit i find you have to put the rods on the handle and feed them in poping them back onto the lock inside once you have the handle in place but getting all the bars off the clips without breaking some of them is dificult but the new handles as you can see come with one old style clip and one new one witch will need to be swapped as it will not take the older thicker rods Adrian bravo epifant thanked for this post

Fitting handles I know your pain.... They look to be a much nicer fit than the 147 handles

Originally Posted by m20b25 Fitting handles I know your pain.... They look to be a much nicer fit than the 147 handles Yeah thats exactly why I wanted them so much. You get a massive gap with the 147 because that door has a curve. Its a horrible job I hope the mechanism never fails.

Originally Posted by Adrian bravo Yeah thats exactly why I wanted them so much. You get a massive gap with the 147 because that door has a curve. Its a horrible job I hope the mechanism never fails. The plastic bit failed on me once however that was due to an attampted break in... I couldnt even get the 147 handles to fit in properly so the bottom juts out aswell

Originally Posted by bravo16VSpoonz you had to take the door card off right Ofcourse yeah there is no other way to do it. I took it as an opertunity to strengthen and repair the top and back edge of the card. The back edge fits perfectly against the door now.

FIAT BRAVA 182 500 door handles fit fiat Bravo

i took a fiat 500 apart just to see what the mechanism in the handle was like and it looks to be completely identical to the bravo and the shape of the hole in door and everything looks the same so i might be trying to fit some of them at some point when i get the bonnet fixed so for anyone that has been looking at the mall fitting alfa 147 handles look no thurther if these ones work they will fit the pannel perfectly as the alfa ones have a crease running through the handle

two the front mounting bolt i was going to put the one i took apart into my car as a test but ran out of time there not actually that expensive new under 30 quid each and you would need a right hand drive drivers side and a left hand drive drivers side to retain both your locks the only thing i cant be sure on till i try is the shape that the but end locks into on the door skin but i cant see fiat

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo door handles

Hello all . Just a quick question. Does anybody know where I could buy some new front door handles for my fiat 1999 bravo They are in good working order but the rubber on the handles have perished and looks gross Any ideas

bravoa handles are rubber and tend to perish the plastic (often colour coded) Marea handles will last longer and look better if you can get them coded to your car. In the meantime I have found black insulation tape to be fantastic for holding them together mine lasted the best part of a year

hi my handles are poo to but i am goner go for the marea handles although i think the alfa would look great i have a picture of some fitted and they leave a gap at the back will post them when i work out how httpwww.network54.comForum15639...71147handles

Most go for the Marea handles. Dont get anti-freeze on the bravoa handles as that speeds up the corrosion considerably

FIAT BRAVO Drivers side interior door handle not working

hi I am a very proud owner of a 2009 fiat bravo Dynanmic Dualogic and this is a problem that has just happened and I want to know if it is something I can repairreplace instead of going to fiat. I went to get out of the car this evening and the interior handle pulled back but the door did not open I had to get my eight year old to let me out by opening it from the outside Ive seen a guide for replacing

Originally Posted by cwinedine You need to get the whole cable assembly. They dont come seperately.

This is obviously a fault of fiat bravos. My 57 had exactly the same problem only about a month ago. I managed to fix it without buying a replacement though I managed to tie the cable back up.

Originally Posted by Most Easterly Pandas And how have you come to come to that to failures does not make it a obvious fault Because every forum I seem to read on bravos has posts on the drivers door side handle breaking from the inside

Originally Posted by timbaker1991 Because every forum I seem to read on bravos has posts on the drivers door side handle breaking from the inside Well Ive been on here since the start of mk2 bravos and Ive heard of it in about 3 cases with yours and the other in this thread being 2 of those.

FIAT BRAVO II Replacing 2007 outer door handles

So youve decided to change or replace your door handles. Well it takes a matter of minutes with the use of a T15 driver.

Is this a rubber between steel and door handle Is it possible to lift a little bit this rubber I have a little damage 1mm right at the top of this black rubber. If I could lift a little bit it would be much better. Or buy somewhere a bit larger rubber I think that someone wanted to brake into my car and made a little damage with a screwdriver right at the top of this rubber.
