A traditional door handle is a simple lever, but on the Tesla Model S, it’s an intricate ballet of moving parts. Thanks to one curious auto writer, we can see exactly how it works.
Bozi Tatarevic, a freelance auto writer and general car-parts nerd, posted a YouTube video that offers up some serious details about the inner workings of the Model S door handle. Using a door handle he sourced from a junkyard for $30 (the assembly retails new for just under $800), he shows how the whole shebang works.
His attention to detail is staggering. Not only does he take it apart, but he also goes into detail on its operation — how it’s able to extend when you’re walking up, or how it can extend when you give it a little push.
