    We are at ~76k miles with no warranty. Our Driver's and Passenger side door handles have short in them and I'm thinking about fixing it myself. Anyone got any experience with this? We don't think it's worth ~$2k to replace both handles for a short. I've watched vodeos about how to gain access and how to replace the microswitches. Anyone with experience doing this?

    There is a thread here, I can't find it now, but if you search for it, it has detailed photos and step-by-step instructions.

    Or you can wait for someone to find it for you...
