Awsome!
Is that the early 924 door lever? ('77-'79)
I have never seen/found those: They are always missing at junkyard cars.

no that is a early Scirocco door handle (75-80)

the lever part you pull on does look longer like the porsche ones and the mechanism looks similar, would be cool to verify if it is the same as early porsche handles.

Yep.
The similarity (door opening mechanism) between the early 924 and Scirocco is what I'm refering to.
Hence my previous question and images.
Thanks. Regards, Harm.

… These handles are the same as a 76 Fox, at least Au market ones anyway. Sure both I have on now are the identical Fox ones, which I snapped… … are indeed different to the plastic #### handles as is also the catch & locking mechanism.

Found another online example of Fox handles:

So, please note: Not completely plug'N'play!
Needs replacement of the door opening and lock mechanism thats already on the used 924 doorhandle.
Help of a hammer and a pair of pliers would suffice: No need to drill apparently.

At least that's how I recall the 2 earlier Audi's that I had. The only issue is that anti scratch shield on the door. I can't remember if the 200 or 5000 series Audi's had those.

(Scratch shields are probably aftermarket)
Would like to see if the Audi doorhandle actualy fit; not much info on the Audi fora etc. though.
Does anyone here actualy got/uses these AUDI door handles?
Lets unmyth that one!

Regards, Harm.

I have been looking for 924 handles for my '81 model
I can confirm that the 77 ones from the martini would not fit and are different
I haven't got the end of the pawls as they were broken off on both sides so thanks for the photos for recognising them but I haven't found any
anyone got a set? no barrels/keys required

I have ordered the handle triggers on their own from ianporsche ( 5691 ) on ebay, they apparently work for 80-82 924's according to him, I will let everyone know if they in fact do, they were 53.90 for a pair without the other bits in the listing for the kit item number 21836835692
38.32 per side with the pins, springs and gaskets, ian is very helpful, recommended seller
I have a 77 martini and a 82 witht the broken doorhandles and a 83 with nothing much wrong with it but I need to get the doorhandles out to find the factory key code because the key is super worn and dicky, so I will take some photo's, backatcha soon.
I heard they were all different 83 onwards to the 80/81 which just ran for a couple of years and were too easy to break (the broken off bit left on the trigger was about 10mm x 1mm thick alloy) I was also told the mk1 VW ones fit but evidently not the same.
I was curious as regands Audi 100 handles...
I found this post on ebay too
371453922011
porsche scripted door handles from hungary and lithuania seem to be aftermarket and plastic too.

triggers did not work, the 82 model ones definitely activate by pushing downwards not inwards so VW sirocco style in chrome and very rare (all broken?) will add photos soon...

Yep, the later ones are different Ron. The 76 (IIRC) Audi Fox handles fit the early cars to ~78 or 79 that push inwards. With no handle on the door you can stick your finger in the hole & push to open.

Later ones, definitely 82, were different and swing or push down, I think. Had or maybe still have a pair of those that came with a couple of spare doors I got on ebay. Swapped them for 2 US or UK origin doors that were lighter as they didn`t have the integral corrugated side impact protection required by ADR. Recall the other board member I exchanged with had some issue with the handles or lock mechanism that was also different. You there Wade?

Those flimsy cast "pot metal" trigger thingos all seem to break at the 2 thin bits where it goes around the lock barrel. No easy fix there, can`t weld/ solder/ glue it back. Perhaps one day it may be viable to look at getting them CNC carved out of solid billet, or even 3D printed.

I have these door handles you can see here..



Off of some old VW hatchback thing. I have not removed one of my 931 handles to compare so I don't know if they fit or if any parts of them will interchange etc.
Just snagged em..

I am chasing 81-2 type that actuate downwards and the pawls bend towards the front of the car instead of the back, they are all apparently broken would be great to 3d print something stronger too. I may be able to host some pics soon...
