Drivers side Door handle of Chevy Malibu Long Question

20

Asked by Sep 03, 2013 at 03:39 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet Malibu Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

When a coworker was attempting to break into my vehicle when I locked my keys in he pulled the driver's side handle way too hard and broke the spring in the handle.  Then when my ex-fiance attempted to figure out how to fix it he broke the handle all together.

My question is: When I go and purchase a new handle for my 2004 Chevy Malibu, a rather unique handle, is the spring in the new handle or is it apart of the door?

Driver's side, passenger side? or both?~

I believe I said driver's side both in the subject and details. The most important handle on the car.

You know, I think it was the "capri" who's handle simply cracked and stopped working...could it have nothing to do with the spring in there, but if we found you a new handle would fix it?

I already know how to get a new handle. I need to know if it is worth my time for a new handle if it wont work because of the spring. Is the spring in the handle or the door that causes the pressure for the door to open?

that chat dude was terribly rude....after making me wait for a good long time said "we can't do handles...try rockauto.com"~ what a chug~
