I have a 98rs and inside it seems that there are mounts for the handles right above the windows, however i dont think i have ever seen them. does anyone know if they make handles or if there are OEM ones that will fit. thanks

I dont have the handles in my 98 either, but I do have the actual handles.

Went to dealership to get the layout for DIY.. OH GOOD GOD!!
Basically, you have to take the complete car apart just to install these things.

Gotta mount the handle brackets under the roof velvet.
To take the velver off you need to take all A and B pillars off.
To get to pillars you gotta take the rear seats and side panels off.

.. good luck

Are we referring to sedans here? My coupe has one for the passenger in the front. I never looked in the rears, but I never have passengers in the rear.

I have a 98 L wagon and I bought a set of handles from a 2003 WRX. Even though all 4 doors have the handle location covers, only the front passenger side had the proper mounting brackets for the handles. The WRX handles do mount perfectly though.

Pop off plastic covers in headliner. Screw on new handle using #2 screw driver. Takes 2 minutes tops as long as the handle has the clips and screws attached.

i hate those things cause people over use them, a buddy of mine pissed me off so in my crx i took it a part and but a nice metal object in it so it would not hurt the person, but seriously make him think twice about using it. It was the greatest day ever when he used them, he was about to go into shock and i was lauging so hard, i told him to grow a set of balls or start driving us instead of me driving (crx had much better gas mileage)

My 2005 rs has one for every passenger including the driver. OH SHIT! I LET GO OF THE STEARING WHEEL!!

yeah man I never could understand that.. same when I had my 03 Forester XS I never used i while driving.. and I've taken many OH SHIT corners that was the only sucky thing about the leather seats would kinda move around depending on what you had on.
