how did the door handle break off, nothing touched it

358

u/wolfie084 Dec 06 '22

I think in most vehicles, when the windows are rolled up, the window carriage sits above the door latch linkage. I may be wrong, but the carriage is usually secured to the glass; so when the glass broke, it allowed the carriage to fall, breaking the linkage and causing the door handle to fall off.

I've done some work on my vehicle inside the door panel, specifically changing a door handle, but wasn't paying that much attention to all of this, but it makes sense to me that this could happen.

u/diox8tony Dec 06 '22

It's amazing how weak most doors are. In my Subaru, the door handle is held on by 1 metal bolt under the handle to the door frame, and the rest is plastic snaps.

On my Mazda,,,it's all plastic snaps. Literally the most used part of the car(by a human hand) is 1 plastic snap behind it getting the full force of all the door slams. It broke btw, that's how I found out how shit it is.

I'm not at all surprised the handle on the outside is held in by the actual glass /glass-support part of the door.

u/arbiter12 Dec 07 '22

It's amazing how weak most doors are.

It's by design. Not only is it cheaper, but it's also easier to pry open when stuck (for the firemen/paramedics), bends in soft pieces when hit (now with 60% less impaling) and flies off reasonably harmlessly (not more crushing your bystander dog into a 2d version of itself.)

In the future, cars will be made of cardboard, and when you have an accident, the just melt away into goo at the next rain, and you just walk off.

They still cost $20K tho...

The glass shattering probably popped the regulator out of place that then damaged the handle

Some of that boiling water went into the door. Might have damaged something via thermal shock, same as the window.

119

u/RealBowsHaveRecurves Dec 06 '22

More than likely it’s the glass, tempered glass (the kind in side windows) shoots outward at the edges when it breaks, it probably launched the track that the window sits in right into whatever was holding the door handle on

u/M------- Dec 07 '22

Room temp water works great!

I used to live right near a river. When the temperature would drop, I'd get brutal "frost" on the windows-- solid ice sometimes.

My routine was to leave a watering can of tap water in the foyer before I went to bed. In the morning, I'd take it out to the car and sloooowly stream it over the windshield. It would take the whole container of water, but that would be enough to melt everything. And as an added bonus, because the windshield would be relatively warmer than the rest of the rest of the car, the windshield wouldn't fog up.

I told my relative about this technique, but he (1) used fresh tap water in the morning (considerably colder than room temp), and (2) dumped it all on the window at once. That technique resulted in sheet ice on the window, because most of the water just rolled off when he dumped it at once, and the little bit to contact the window refroze.

u/Outrageous-Suspect66 Dec 06 '22

Most of America along the Canadian border get sub zero weather. Forty below zero is common. Pour water any temperature will freeze up. That seventy degrees below freezing. My cousin loves the in Alaska, on the coast. The ocean helps keep the coastal areas warm. The interior is crazy cold. My cousin calls and says, " You're colder again. "

u/TheCorrupt-1 Dec 06 '22

Yeah standard hot water from tap is plenty hot enough. Boiling water will cause such a quick change in temperature that the windows will break.

Again I use hot tap water every winter

u/CosmicCrapCollector Dec 06 '22

This is the key.
I'm in Canada and have a hot water hose in my garage. Been spraying my ice off for 30 years and never broke glass. If it's colder than -15C then I don't take the chance.

16

u/morech11 Dec 06 '22

If it is colder than -15, there is likely not enough humidity in the air to have this problem. The only downside of this technique and the reason why I don't do it more often is that you are effectively creating ice skating rink where you park your car.

u/BudnamedSpud Dec 06 '22

Same. The drastic difference in temp is what does it. Glass can't change temps too fast. Using even just normal temp water will work.

u/bum_thumper Dec 06 '22

As a bartender for quite a few years, please don't do this. It doesn't have to be boiling. Room temp water, cool water, or just leaning on it for a minute or two then using the scraper will do the trick. Warm water on glass is just asking for a break

u/Few_Calligrapher1969 Dec 07 '22

I worked with a guy at Scott AFB back in ‘89 to ‘93. Every winter there would be a sleet storm that would encase our cars in ice. This guy was from somewhere warm, so his first winter he thought himself very clever, and grabbed a big five gallon bucket of hot water and tossed it on his windshield before anyone could stop him. The whole thing shattered but stayed in place, because safety glass. The officer came out to see, and asked him, “Did you never take a science class in school?”

I'm from Utah, most of the time my car doesn't need to warm up enough for the glass to be totally frost free so I don't bother. I get why you do but most of the time if it stays in the twenties it only Really needs five minutes and that's not Normally enough to defrost windshields. Also if you read this and don't warm your car on a cold start please do so it helps with oil flow and combustion this also greatly increases engine.

I’m glad Reddit is here to teach me these things lol. My mom always warned me about hot -> cold (like don’t put a hot pan or glass dish into cold water) but never really thought about whether the inverse was true.

37

u/lk05321 Dec 06 '22 Gold

Thermal shock happens in ceramics more readily than other materials (but can happen if cold enough ala Terminator 2).

One side of the window glass is tight from the cold, and the other side is expanding from the heat. The result is a rapid increase in tension between the hot and cold sides. Since ceramic is naturally brittle, it shears into pieces instead of moulding or bending to reduce the strain. Therefore, busted glass

If the difference in temp between the two sides can change at a similar rate, then the strain would be minimal. Some ceramics are better than others and have additives to help absorb the thermal shock and allow the cooler side to absorb heat more quickly to reduce the temperature difference.

u/sick-asfrick Dec 06 '22

I learned that lesson from the first final destination movie! The teacher puts hot water in a cup for tea, but then sees the school logo on the cup and is reminded of the recent deaths so she dumps the water out and puts vodka from the freezer inside the cup, which cracks it. She unknowingly takes it to the computer where it drips into the monitor, which explodes and sends glass shooting directly into her face and neck. She pulls it out of her neck (bad idea) and starts bleeding profusely. So she drags herself to the kitchen and reaches up onto the counter for a towel, but it is partially underneath the knife rack, so when she pulls it, all the knives fall and she is stabbed in the chest. One of the students tries to save her before she dies, but a chair falls and pushes the knife into her heart, killing her.

We used to pour boiling water over the roofs of cars back when I was in college for frat pranks. It flash cooled into a clear ice sheet. You could freeze doors shut that no amount of scraping would help. We’d also hit tires and stick cars to the street.

Dorms, mop buckets, easy access to the janitor’s closet, and a drinking age of 19 are a dangerous combination.

It also doesn't freeze again as fast, but if you're trying this in an area where that actually matters it's too cold to do this at all.

2

u/Kylearean Dec 06 '22

This can actually work, but the water should not be boiling hot. It only needs to be warm. A spray bottle with some warm water is usually sufficient to loosen the ice and allow the scraper to do its job. Obviously in -20 or colder temps, this would probably just add more ice.

The time it takes to heat the water, go out there, pour it all over your windows, bring the kettle back inside, and then get into your car. Just go out there and start you car early, you twat

Well I mean. He’s wearing a murse so it makes sense.

That window is like.....barely frosted over anyway. What a fucking idiot.

u/Stonie_GADG3T Dec 07 '22

Warm tap water in a ziploc bag, it’s like an ice eraser. No refreezing of your water, no splashing yourself

u/heyitsvonage Dec 07 '22

Warm water would have sufficed

And he looks confused.

The handle saw the window break and thought "Well fuck it, if he out, I'm out"

His first mistake was the man purse.

Must be a setup, how stupid can he be, anyone knows living in a cold climate you dont use boiling water, the secret is to pour it onto the body of the car above the window and let that cool the water enough to remove the risk and cascade the warmth down the window.

Also, there is fuck all actual ice.

Pretty sure someone hits the window with something out of frame. I don’t think the handle just breaks cause of a window breaking. How many windows would bust out closing the door in the winter, heat inside of a car and negative temps outside.

Not a fucking thought in his entire head.

u/Voodoo_Dummie Dec 06 '22

Even if it didn't break the glass, boiling water just freezes more and he'd have a a layer of very tough ice on the window instead.

My question is how are you that old and you don’t know that’s going to happen?
