They should fit since the doors are the same (and presumably the locks), but I do not know of anyone who has done this, so can't be 100% sure. Good luck mate.

WATCH OUT, ther eis a difference if u go to put EB or maby EA handels onto a ED, so it could b a bit different, the EA has one big hole but the ED has 2 smaller hoels, dunno about the EB(sorry) but the might fit or the might not fit, try the lh front door and c.

ok, i might have said that wrong(happens a lot) EA door handles dont fit onto ED's, cos i'm running ED door handels on my EA as well, but, i thought that there could have been a difference as well between the ED and EF, but there mightn't have been as well, inwhich case , all door handels will fit onto a EA, but only ED+ will fit on all

The wreckers told me that they will all fit on an EA, even EL ones cos they tried to sell me a set of them for $80
