BMW X3 2006 - Inner Door Handle - Where to buy?

Hi all,

I am new to the forum!

The rear inner door handle (right hand side) of my 2006 X3 snapped. I am trying to find a replacement for it - Called BMW this morning ... 30 for a piece of plastic!!

I searched the whole web few times - no luck!

Here is the part number: 51413415580 - Door Handle Right Perlglanzchrom.

I did read in this forum that they can be sourced cheaper (~10) ...

Any advice would be really appreciated?

Many thanks in advance.

Welcome to Bimmerfest! I've moved your question to the X3 forum, you will get more help in here. You can look in the classifieds for a used one, check on eBay for a used one or connect with our site sponsors who typically sell OEM parts cheaper then your local parts counter -

Good luck,

Hi Tim,

Thanks for that.

I have been searching ebay and everywhere ... no used ones!

Any of these site sponsors are UK based?

Thanks.

I don't believe we have any UK parts places as sponsors. It might be worth it even with shipping to get it from the US.

OK, thanks mate. I will check them out.

Another quick question, what do you mean by 'classifieds' for used ones?

Thanks

You need to find someone parting out an X3 and who has the same finish for the handle. You could spend more time looking then it is worth.
