The one I am fixing has the handle rod clip hole broke, So you have to buy another handle. Hopefully you can find a used one with the same color as the car. you need to remove the dr. panel which consist of three screws (one screw is under a plastic plug in the bottom of the panel handle cup) and five or so clips which pop out when you apply lite pressure under the panel to them. Then it you need to remove the rod for the inside handle and lift the panel up and out of the door. Unplug the electric windows switch and the rest is self explanatory.
