    Default M1083A1 Door Help

    Hello:

    Had the circled part break and looking for replacement guidance. It is on the driver side. We saw a few threads and tried to contact a company that made aftermarket parts with no luckpart.jpg.

    Any help appreciated!

    after you get it fixed.... adjust the door so it fits good and open and closes smoothly..... this is what breaks these handle parts

    being that your a vfd your odds are better than ours to get with a local HS or college with classes that work with 3d printing. have them make you several... even better if they can make one for you to be used as a cast. Then have them use it (or a local hobbiest) to make you a cast metal one.

    PM me when you can. I went through this a couple of years ago and made a couple of spares.
