Can I fix a broken interior door handle that wont open and a broken off exterior door handle on the front drivers LH door or should I completely replace the front door panel and assembly?


Asked by Oct 16, 2016 at 05:00 PM about the 2006 Kia Spectra EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The front drivers door (LH) of my 2006 KIA Spectra is pretty beat up. The
interior door handle will not open but is still in place and the exterior door
handle has completely snapped off. Is it possible/should I look into getting the
handles replaced and the cable assembly replaced or do I need to be looking
to completely replace the door?
