Hey everyone!

I’ve had my K5 for 4 months now, the only thing that has bothered me about the quality is how cheap the door handles sound when you let go. They have a very tinny sound when you let go to get in or when you pull on then and forgot to unlock the door.

I was wondering if anyone has found a mod or creative way to dampen the sound on the handle meeting the door panel.

Thanks!

Dont have a suggestion, but be careful about opening doors too forcefully, especially when pulling handle towards back of car. Entire handle came off on my 2016. Design appears to be same on K5, as someone posted the same thing happening to them. Sounds and feels cheap because entire mechanism is mostly plastic.
