    I am the owner since May 2012 of 400i serial # 42185, purchased from Motorcar Gallery. Pictures of the car are still on their site under sold inventory. I think protocol is that I post a separate thread about the car, which I will do.

    My immediate problem is a broken door handle, caused be operator impatience in freezing weather. I jerked on it and it broke. Of course, after the fact I used WD-40 and some siicone, and now it opens smoothly using the outside handle. I can jury-rig something ugly for the inside, but it will be just that. I've tried what I think are all the usual suspects (Eurospares, Rutlands, Ferrparts, GT Car Parts,etc.) with no luck. Any suggestions?

    I really enjoy the forum, and get a lot from it, but I'm computer-intimidated so I've not joined in. Now, I'm desperate.

    Thanks for your help.

    Try Mr. Fiat, I believe they are in the Atlanta area. You can Google them. I believe the 400inside door handle may be the same as a Fist 130.

    The part number for the LH inside door handle on a 400i is 257-30-811-02 and interchanges with part number 95408514 and Maranello Concessionaires shows a price for one in there inventory but you would have to contact them to see if is still there.

    I'm continuing to search, but no luck so far. Both Eurospares and Marenello Concesionaires list the handle, but neither has one now. I'm hoping markcF355 might find something. If not, I'll improvise and keep following the part-out guys, hoping that they get a car, and I catch it when it happens.

    I'm working on a brief sum up of #42185.

    Of course I would like it. The price posted by Eurospares and Marenello Concesionaires is about $105.00. I don't know about shipping. I live in Allentown PA. Let me know how much you want and, if you tell me how you need to be paid, I will follow your instructions.

    Thanks so much for contacting me.

    Still no luck on this handle, but bundas is checking another possibility. If anyone else has a lead, I would appreciate it. It seems I will need to look for a car just received for breaking, so that is what I'm doing.

    Thank you Sam. The handles from Ital-spares are "oval", and mine are "rectangular". BJWhite posted an offering from his area of 365 parts, and door panels were shown, with an opening which looks as though its for "rectangular". Mitchell seems to have these under control, so I'll rely on him.
    Thanks again.

    Good day Mitchell,

    Thanks! Although, in general I am still wondering what I am good for :)

    Cheers,

    Sam

    Good day John,

    Understood. However, keep in mind that the rectangular cut-outs you are referring to are for a trim piece where the oval interior handle fits into. See pics of how the oval handle fits into this rectangular cutout... This is correct for the 365GT4 2+2, but may not be for the 400 series. I will check the parts manual to see what it shows.

    Cheers,

    Sam

    Good day again John,

    Indeed the 400 series has a different handle. It is item 48 in the parts manual and is given as part 257-30-810-02... which according to Eurospares is orderable and is $110.62 USD... That being said availability and pricing info may be outdated and incorrect.

    Cheers,

    Sam

    Good afternoon Sam

    Thanks for all your research. I contacted Eurospares, and they do not have the part in stock. They suggested following their "cars for breaking" list, looking for a 400i. Since Mitchell has me covered, I won't need to do that now.

    Best,

    John
