Hello and welcome to just answer Dodge. In the past, you had to replace the complete door panel to fix this. But now there is a replacement inside door handle/bezel assembly to fix this problem. You can get this item at your dealer, and repair your door panel with this part.

Here is the service bulletin that talks about this repair.

Hope this information helps, and let me know if you need more assistance with this.

NOTE: Each kit contains one handle/bezel assembly, six pushnuts and an

instruction sheet.

SPECIAL TOOLS/EQUIPMENT REQUIRED:

NPN 21/64 in. (8.3mm) Drill Bit

REPAIR PROCEDURE:

1. Remove the front door trim panel using the procedures outlined on TechCONNECT or

in Section 23 of the appropriate service manual.

2. After placing the door trim panel on a clean work surface, use a 21/64 in. drill bit to drill

out the mounting boss heat stakes that attach the existing door handle/bezel to the

trim panel. Take extra care to drill in the center of each heat stake, (Fig. 1).

Fig. 1 DRILL 4 HEAT STAKES

3. Remove the existing handle/bezel from trim panel.

4. Clean the back of the trim panel of all plastic filings.

5. Seat the new handle/bezel into position.

6. Place the push nuts onto the handle/bezel bosses.

7. Use a 10mm socket to install the push nuts all the way down on the mounting bosses

to secure the handle/bezel onto the door trim panel. Using a wiggling side to side

motion may be helpful, (Fig. 2).

Doesn't sound too complicated and I'm guessing i can do that myself. Will the dealer give copies of the instruction to remove door panel?
