Default DIY with Pics.. Fix your door handle that won't open in minutes

I just bought my z06 and was having an issue with my door not opening when I press the button. I had to press it several times before that contacts would recognize and open my door. I read a couple of threads about how people fixed it but didn't see any pictures. I went ahead and fixed it within 5 minutes on each door. I took pictures for the next person as well. Hope this helps!

Good post. Just a side note, if they are beyond repair, they are around 14 bucks for a new one.

Bought new buttons years ago when mine started acting up. Never put them on because cleaning contacts fixed it.

So good advice to clean and save a few bucks.

nice....thanks for sharing.
the hatch button is a little different as it has a plunger that gets gunked up with dirt and sand. I removed it and cleaned it last sunday and it now opens every time I touch it. guess i'll do the doors now.

no problem anytime. I have always done DIY for all my previous cars and just like helping others out. I wish there was a DIY on how to change a starter cause I think mines on the way out
