You will need to replace the entire door handle, which includes removing the door panel. You did not specify if it was interior or exterior, so, I will supply both.


If it is an exterior handle, preform the door panel removal, raise window all the way up, and you will see two bolts on either side of the handle. {take care as not to loose the door lock rod and handle rod positions. reinstall.
