    After an ice storm I went to open the driver side door and prompty broke

    the cast metal(?) that actually does the opening. Do I have to go to a dealer? Can I get a better price? Looked (Googled) around to no avail.

    Any help?

Hi jim,

you need to open the door panel, after removing the panel, raise up your window completely and you can see the nuts or bolts that are holding your door handle.

remove the screws that fasten the interior door panel to the door.  Visually inspect the handle assembly. there will be two cables that connect the handle and lock button to the door lock assembly.  I would bet that the L-shaped end of the interior door handle cable broke.  The replacement is self explanatory for the handle. Google the door lock assembly which isn't as visable.  Bob

Broken door handle


Yes, if it is actually really broken you can look for and aftermarket door handle or go to the dealer (which will be more money of course!).
There are many aftermarket dealers of door parts all over the web, just take your time!

Order the exterior door handle AND the clip that attaches the rod to the exterior handle from your local dealership ( any part in the salvage yard will have at least as much wear as the one U are replacing ) Also order a can of touch up paint matching your car. After you have the parts and have painted the new exterior handle, roll down the window and remove the interior door panel. ( instructions have been posted at 'replace door lock buttom' ) Two nuts, one on each side, hold the broken handle in place and must be removed ( DON'T loose them ). Loosen the rod from the clip at the top to allow a bit more room, But take note on the way it is attached ( you will need to reattach the rod to new handle ) To install new mechanism put the new clip on the rod, carefully place the gasket and the new handle in place and install nuts to secure. Test the door handle and make sure it works. Reinstall interior door panel.

I have a 2-rear door 2002 Astro. The door handle has broken and I cannot open the doors. Can I remove the handle assembly from the outside, and what parts do I need to make the replacement?


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.
