JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: took door panel off and saw the pin popping out is the problem

JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Kia Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Is there a specfic one to order or do all of them come in the package
Expert:  K. Wiggins replied 6 months ago.

There are several sizes that come in the package. You could also take the handle with you to make sure it has the proper one if needed.

The website says it doesnt fit my model of car
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Id have to remove it and the cables. But i can try it. Have you fixed one that way before
Expert:  K. Wiggins replied 6 months ago.

Yes, The HELP! kit is generic and not vehicle specific

Expert:  K. Wiggins replied 6 months ago.

At the parts store there will be a section with HELP! branded products, there are a couple of different sized variety packs.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Okay thank you. Do i pop out the broken one and then pop in the other ine or is it more complicated than that
Expert:  K. Wiggins replied 6 months ago.

That's it. Pop in new one, insert the rod and roatate the clip so it locks over the rod. Using the HELP! clip is much cheaper than replacing the whole handle.
