Grab Handle for Front Door and Pillar [Vanagon]
Front door and pillar grab handle for all Vanagon.
Note: The aftermarket handle has smaller screw holes than the OE version—you may be required to drill out the holes a bit to accept the old screws. If you need the wedge bases and screws, check out our Wedge Base Kit. If you need just the screws, a good size to buy from your local hardware store is a 1" - #14 Philips Pan Head Self-Tapping Screw.
Wedge Bases: In most cases, the original wedge bases that this handle sits on can, and should be reused. Replacement OEM wedge bases are not currently available, but our Wedge Kit for the left-hand side of the van can be used in a pinch. However you will need to drill new holes, and the old mounting holes may be left exposed.
GoWesty folds in the clips on these handles to prevent damage while shipping. They can be easily popped back out with a screwdriver for installation. Insert a screwdriver into the screw hole on the bottom of the handle. Apply pressure to the side clip, and it will pop open.
