    I noticed there was a gap between the door handle and the lock cover, messed around and the lock cover came off. How do you fix this?[​IMG][​IMG]

    I would think it just clips back on.

    I tried that..maybe a little more elbow grease and possibly super glue for added hold

    If you can't find any other ways of doing it, that's what I would do.

    What does the back of the cover look like. Are any plastic clips bent/broken?

    It is weird that it just came off. Maybe the guys at @CollegeHillsHonda can give you better advise?

    It looks like they were last active on Sept 15th so they might. You could always send them an email too.

    Take a pic of the back side of the cover. I believe it slides in between the door and the metal piece surrounding the the key hole. Once it slides in, it might click into place.

    I saw there was space between the door handle and the key hold so I pushed a little bit on the cover and low and behold it popped off. I might have yo go to honda..but don't wanna pay for that stuff..

    From the pictures it does look like it just clicks in once the tabs catch. Maybe it just needs a little more pressure to click in to place.

    Edit: After doing a little research, the door handle cover coming off was apparently a common problem on some older civics. I am assuming this is a similar problem and most cases it was fixed with some plastic putty or epoxy on or around the tabs.

    I get back into town tomorrow and can see what the Accord cover looks like and compare it to your pic.

    I barely messed with the Accord stuff but I think it might be different. I'll let you know...
