    My driver's side exterior door handle broke. Looks like someone had previously welded it back together. Ebay has a few pricey NOS pieces. Aftermarket lists for 1982-1983 Mirada only....is there a difference? Chrysler used that same looking handle on a lot of models for many years..... Any help is appreciated.

    My handle is P/N 4184227......looking around online, 4184228 supercedes it and looks identical. But the listings say doesn't fit my car. Should I order the 4228's anyway? I can't see ANY differences.

    FYI, usually part numbers ending in odd numbers go on the left drivers side of the vehicle & those ending in even numbers go on the passengers side.

    On Miradas the left and right door handles are the same. My nos handles have 4184227 cast into them. You are correct that they supercede to 4184228. The 1980 parts book shows 3882722 for up to 12/79 and 3882780 for after 12/79.

    Thanks. Not knowing at the time that the 4228 is the same, I found a single 4227 NOS aftermarket on ebay and ordered it. Hopefully USPS doesn't get delayed again. Anybody know if you can still get manual window regulator parts?? The passenger side is missing teeth on the top of the moon shaped gear rack. Very baffling LOL
