Is this the out side chrome handle?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
Yes the outside chrome handle. I pulled on the open lever and the handle and everything conected to it came out of the hole the handle assembly goes into.

You will need to get a new handle from your local dealership. They will have them in stock, this is a common issue on these cars. To replace the handle, you first need to remove the inside door panel. No special tools required to do this repair.

  4. Disconnect the inside door handle linkage.
