GRUVENPARTS.COM BILLET STAINLESS EXTERIOR DOOR HANDLE INSERTS FOR 2007-2014 GM TRUCKS - Click Here for the Product Page !


*** SOLD IN SETS OF 2 - ENOUGH FOR 1 COMPLETE DOOR HANDLE ***

GruvenParts.com is proud to release these BILLET stainless machined inserts for GM truck door handles. Check out the install instructions at the bottom of this page.
We all know the serious problem these otherwise great trucks suffer regarding the exterior door handles pulling away from the body of the truck, rendering the handle useless and making it easy for thieves to pry their way in. The short, weak threaded insert GM uses in the door handle pull right out causing the entire handle to move away from the truck body.




While GM refuses to correct this design flaw, GruvenParts has stepped up with another great product for these trucks!

Our billet machined stainless steel inserts are much longer than the OEM short knurled inserts, and thus utilize the maximum hole depth to distribute the pull stresses evenly. The outer surface of our billet threaded insert is machined with a special thread pattern which allows our insert to be threaded fully into the handle body using a standard 11mm socket.




There is no need to buy expensive replacement door handles which then require additional painting. Save your existing door handles, save money, and be done with this problem once and for all with a set of these billet stainless door handle inserts!

These inserts will replace the shallow, weak inserts which GM is using on the exterior door handles of 2007-2014 trucks, including Acadia, Traverse, Enclave, Escalade, Silverado, Avalanche, Tahoe, Suburban, Sierra, Yukon, and Denali. This includes but is not limited the following exterior front and rear door handles

15930535 20828237 20828243 22738721 15930536 20954794 20954796 20954801 22738722 20954849 22738725 20954815 20954825 15930553 25960521 20954826 25960522 15930554 20954816

Please note this is only a small list of GM truck exterior door handles. There are many more part numbers which these inserts fit into.

*** Installation Instructions ***

1. Remove exterior door handle from vehicle.

2. If threaded inserts are missing, proceed to step 3. If threaded inserts are still attached, use a 50-75mm (2-3 inch long) M6 x 1.0 bolt to thread fully into the insert. It may take a bit of torqueing once the bolt bottoms out on the handle, but soon the OEM threaded insert will become free from the handle body. Discard the OEM short threaded inserts.

3. Apply Permatex Plastic Welder P/N 84115 (readily available at Hardware stores) or equivalent to the outside of the GruvenParts billet stainless insert. A nice light coating is all that is needed. Be careful not to get any epoxy on the inside threads, as those will be used to reattach the handle to the car door.

4. Using an 11mm socket, slowly thread the GruvenParts billet stainless insert into the handle body at its appropriate location. Ensure the insert is fully engaged, with the hex head snug against the handle body. Allow epoxy to cure fully. Be careful not to get any epoxy on the inside threads, as those will be used to reattach the handle to the car door.

GruvenParts.com is pleased to announce this replacement strengthened new BRASS spur gear for the folding mirrors on 2007-2014 GM trucks including Acadia, Traverse, Enclave, Escalade, Silverado, Avalanche, Tahoe, Suburban, Sierra, Yukon, and Denali.

As a result, the spur gear cracks at the slightest impact or just wears out over time causing an inoperable folding mirror.

GruvenParts.com has SOLVED this issue by designing a proper BRASSspur gear made with a thicker cross section to eliminate the stress concentrations which cause fatigue cracking. Our spur gear is machined to fit onto the OEM worm shaft via epoxy. We can provide new motors, too if you want them, please visit the GM Section of our website or click here

2007-2014 GM Door Lock Actuator Repair - Click the Pic !

Now You Can Buy the Motor With a New Gear Pre-Installed!

GruvenParts.com is proud to release our repair for the 2007-2014 GM door lock actuators. In most cases, the faulty motor within the actuator burns out but the rest of the actuator unit is still fine. GruvenParts.com has corrected this design flaw by developing a new high torque motor with the factory correct wiring input. Our motors have passed rigorous 35,000 lock/unlock cycle testing without issue. We warranty all units for 1 year, but if there are ever any issues with the product we ask you to contact us immediately even if outside the warranty period. Please read the repair options below before ordering.

Repair Options
Buy Motor Only and Install Yourself - Save $$. Click the product image above to visit the product page and read the motor only install procedure.

Buy a Repaired Actuator : Our FAA licensed Airframe and Powerplant mechanics disassemble the broken actuators, clean and lubricate the core components, and replace the unreliable GM electric motor within the unit with our new high torque design with the factory correct wiring input. The repaired units are bolted back together using appropriate fasteners and can be easily re-serviced. The repaired actuator is fully tested and warranted.

Send Us Your Actuator for Repair : Send in your actuator to the address specified on the Product Page. We will accomplish the repair described above and send it back to you within 1-2 weeks.

BEFORE ORDERING THE ACTUATOR :
Please email Paul@GruvenParts.com with your actuator part number so we can ensure we have it in stock. You can call your dealer parts department and provide them your VIN # and they will give you all your actuator part numbers. Remember : LF (Left Front) is Drivers Side Front, RR (Right Rear) is Passenger Side Rear.

Eligible Models
2007-2014 GM models including Tahoe, Yukon, Escalade, Silverado, Suburban, Sierra, Avalanche (and others) as well as Malibu and Cadillac sedans using any of the following door lock actuator part numbers (and very likely many others):

Please keep checking back on this list, as it continually grows.

Core Charge
There is a $20 core charge when ordering the actuator from us which is refunded when you send us your old actuator in serviceable condition (ie, not ripped apart, burned, run over, ect...). Please send your old actuator to the address listed on the product page to receive the $20 core refund. Please include a copy of your original order invoice and write ""CORE"" on the package. There is no core on the ""Motor Only"" option.

By Back Program
Do you have a dead actuator lying around the garage? Are you a GM service tech or independent shop that has buckets of these things collecting dust or filling up your waste bins? You may be able to send them to us for a $10 credit or check and help out other GM owners. We are actively building our Cores inventory and need your serviceable actuators. If they are serviceable, we'll issue you a $10 credit or check (your choice). Please email Paul@GruvenParts.com with your part number(s).

2. If threaded inserts are missing, proceed to step 3. If threaded inserts are still attached, use a 50-75mm (2-3 inch long) M6 x 1.0 bolt to thread fully into the insert. It may take a bit of torqueing once the bolt bottoms out on the handle, but soon the OEM threaded insert will become free from the handle body. Discard the OEM short threaded inserts.

3. Apply Permatex Plastic Welder P/N 84115 (readily available at Hardware stores) or equivalent to the outside of the GruvenParts billet stainless insert. A nice light coating is all that is needed. Be careful not to get any epoxy on the inside threads, as those will be used to reattach the handle to the car door.

4. Using an 11mm socket, slowly thread the GruvenParts billet stainless insert into the handle body at its appropriate location. Ensure the insert is fully engaged, with the hex head snug against the handle body. Allow epoxy to cure fully. Be careful not to get any epoxy on the inside threads, as those will be used to reattach the handle to the car door.

5. Reinstall exterior door handle. Test handle before reinstalling interior trim panel."
