Customer Question
Hello, my driver side...

Hello, my driver side exterior door handle was broken off; currently searching for a way to fix it

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Kia?

I believe it its a '05 or '06 kia sportage

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sportage yourself? What have you tried so far?

I am not very mechanically savy, but due to income DIY is my best option;

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I am searching for a replacement part

Hello my name is ***** ***** welcome to just answers! I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required. If I don’t answer right away or quickly in conversation I am helping another customer or have stepped out for a moment and will respond as soon as I can. Ok lets get started!

So if you have the vin I can locate the year for you to get the right part and instructions for install
