Checking The Operation Of Locks And Handles

The hinges on the handles to the 147/GT are prone to snapping but can be replaced on models from 2006 onward. On the Giulietta the interior door release handle is flimsy and tends to snap off. Push button boot release badges can fail but it's not a common issue.

Check that the exterior door handles open the doors efficiently and that the doors close smoothly.

It's essential that you can get out.....check the interior door release handle.

Check the bonnet release lock....

....and the boot lock (a little grease will aid).

Door check straps need to be greased, If they are broken the door will open too far.

While you're playing around with the doors you may as well check the window switches.
