    Has anyone experienced a chrome bubble on the Model X door handle? If so, is there a remedy besides replacing? What is the cost to order new handle?

    I suspect replace is your only option. How old is it?

    Aren't the "door handles" on our Xes basically a plate adhered to a surface? I seem to recall that it's really just a flat-ish piece of metal. I suppose it needs to be conductive though for the touch sensor to work.

    its is just a small thin cover that pops off/on. should be an easy replacement.
