You're probably refering to the outside rear. I had to replace my left rear on a 2002 Impala. It's plastic, and if you don't use the back doors very often, they tend to stick, and snap goes the door handle.
Door handles are available on Ebay for $20-25. Make sure you order the ciorrect one. They are all different.
Remove the door panel. Remove the two nuts to the door handle. It will now be easier to remove the clip and rod to the latch. As I recall, it's easier to remove the rod from the latch, then remove the handle with the rod attached. Transfer the rod to the new handle before installing into the door.
The door handle might be broken, you need a new part. I got mine online for $40. keywords: 2001 2002 2003 2004 2005 2006 2007 Toyota Sequoia Metal Lift Gate Exterior Door Handle for Rear Outside Van Tailgate Handle. You need to remove the back door panel to replace this.
You can pick up the handle from your local GMC dealer. I paid roughly $90 for both (a bit high...but money well spent!) As noted, yes; you do have to remove the interior door panel. From there it's just a matter of removing 4 nuts (metric #10 socket), and replacing them back once the new handle is slipped into place! The bars that operate the door latches simply snap into the plastic clips attached to the handle assembly.
The operation sounds worse then what it really is. It took me longer to write up this review than it did to actually do the work! 5 minutes max...done!! Hell, if you're local; buy the parts
You need to open the door to remove the handle, ask a locksmith to open it with a 'slim jim' then once it is open you can remove the broken handle assembly.
Once removed you can see what you need to replace.
