Customer Question

I have a 2008 chrysler sebring convertible that I broke the exterior driver side door handle off in a central Illinois ice storm about 1 & 1/2 mo ago. I bought a new one online & tried to put it on after watching a you-tube video. My brother & I got the door trim panel off & put back on after failing to remove the bro***** *****dle, but the You-tube videos I watched were not specific for my make/model and of no real help. I looked online for repair nanuals & was unsuccessful. Can you help me with the details of what I need to complete this repair myself?
Sincere thanks,
Brian J Reilly

Hi Moose,
When we had the door panel off on Saturday, we took off a couple of bolts. One was a torx the other was I believe a 10ml, but I don't remember. The big silver metal latch mechanism was still in the way. It had 2 torx adjustment screws for adjusting the window up and down and in and out. Need to know what are the type of nuts to remove. Size in mm or are they torx screws.
Thanks a lot
Brian

That info is not included in repair guides. If memory serves me. I believe the 3 screws are 8mm heads. I would need to see a picture or see it in person to find out and or refresh my memory from doing this in the past.

Hi Moose,
I e-mailed back on the 27th, but apparently I must have done it the wrong way & you didn't receive it. Here is what I asked:
Hi moose,
Thanks for forwarding the pix of the exterior driver side handle for m,y '08 Chrysler Sebring convertible. Unfortunately, it doesn't answer my question. With the door panel off, I can't see the 3 nuts. What size are they, how do I access them, & are they torx screws? As I mentioned before, there is a big silver part in the way. It might be the latch mechanism. It's about 4" x4" and has 2 torx screws through it for fine tuning the window up or down or in and out. There are 2 rubber access panels near it but we still can't see the nuts with these out. There is a large hard plastic shield secured by 8 or 9 bolts (maybe 10 ml). we did not remove this. Is this the carrier plate & does it need to be removed for this repair?
Thanks again,
Brian

Would you like the latch removal steps to see if that helps gain access. I wish i ha one here to look at. I have done to many and just can not remember what it looks like from memory.

With the door trim off, you should be able to easily see the screws holding the exterior door handle on. Below is an image.
