The plastic is very weak, there is not any kind of reinforcement for the handle pull. Put this on and it did fit just like it should but after two days the plastic broke. The door had only even been opened a couple of times. Save your money.
I ordered this as a replacement handle for the rear door in my "93 explorer and I'm very happy I decided to try the project DIY style before I took it to a shop. As far as I can see there is absolutely no difference between this one and the one from the factory. The install went very smoothly and that's saying a lot since I have pretty much no experience fixing my car.
Removing the inner door panel was the most difficult part of replacing the damaged passenger door handle. The handle replacement was completed in less than 5 minutes. The local shop was going to charge me $150 for labor and parts to make the repair. I did it myself for pennies on the dollar with NO special tools.
looks the same quality as OEM and will probably last just as long. Easy to install...just make sure you get the clip tool and have a good flashl;ight to see that your prying on the clip and not the door panel or your break the tabs off when removing the interior door panel. Google interior door panel removal for 02 explorer etc... and watch a video so you get an idea how to remove the panel properly...then its a piece of cake to change this handle.
Fits and works but feels very cheap. The plastic that they used for the pull handle is not glass reinforced like the original part was, so you feel the handle bending every time you open the door. Feels like crap and I wish I had just gotten an OEM replacement instead.
This handle doesn't fit perfectly inside a 1995 Ford Explorer. I had to sand it down in a few places to get it to actually fit. It didn't create any real issues though and the handles seem to be very good quality. I'm not sure why they make them this way because it seems whoever installed the previous handle had to do the same thing. The handles i replaced had also been sanded so that they fit. I still give this product 5 stars because the shipping was very fast and they are good quality.
