How to fix rear internal handle mechanism

hey :)

So recently my rear door handles on either side have fallen off, it looks to be because they were pulled from an odd angle. Anyway the latch that holds in the clip next to the handle has broken.

Just wondering wondering if anyone has any experience repairing this part or if perhaps a mechanic is my only option

aleksandir darn looks like you will have to replace the inside part. Use the Body Exterior part of the SM to work on it. Body Exterior (you need to check the Next, Next and Ok to get to the complete manual)

This is a fantastic resource! Wish I knew where to find this. Thank you so much! One last issue, how do we go about finding the part and sourcing it?


@aleksandir depends on where you are located. My number one resource is still the old "Automotive Recycler" (we used to call it the junkyard:-) Otherwise a good online search for your geographic region may get you some ideas where to get the Door Handle Base (mounting bar)
