The plastic door handle is broken.
You will need to get a replacement door handle.

First off, if you're attempting this, I'm assuming you're someone mechanically inclined or at least somewhat of a grease monkey -
NO NEED for me to tell you how to change the first THREE spark plugs that stare at you when you pop-up your hood - These should be child play for you... if not, take your car to a shop and stop reading... (no offense)...
The back ones are the fun ones to get to!
Keep in mind you will need to move a lot of the wire harnesses around - you may have to cut a few tie-down clips or zip-ties to help you out.
1 - Remove the Air Box - Remove Air Filter - No need to dismantle the whole Unit into pieces... Loosen up the clip clamp at the Throttle Body and pull out the whole Unit -
** Disconnect the Sensors, Disconnect the Front Rubber Hose and the little valve underneath **
2 - Loosen and remove the screws that hold down the manifold (6 total I think in the front) - There is a super long one all by itself in the middle - the others are at the edges
** Also, take your time to detach the Wire Harness/Hoses strapped to the Manifold (in the front) you can do this by removing the black electrical tape and replacing later when you're done ...
3 - There is one screw under the Throttle Body - remove it - it's kinda' hidden but you'll see it.
4 - There is another one on top of the manifold towards the back - it's hidden under the hood cowl
** Look on top of your engine towards the back - Locate two rubber hoses attached to the manifold - FYI - You will be working in a very TIGHT spot, but be patient and make sure you don't give up! **
5 - Loosen/Detach Rubber Hose on the Left (Pass Side) attached to the Manifold (PCV Valve?) - Make sure you don't drop it - it connects the manifold to the Engine - it's a small "L-shaped" hose
** There is a tiny connector right below that valve, you cannot see it but you can feel it, it's easy to remove, just unplug it - AGAIN, it's a tight spot, but not impossible to work with. **
6 - Loosen/Detach another Rubber Hose on the Right (Driver Side) and your manifold is ready to come off - Move it around, and pull it out... careful with the wire harnesses around and the other hoses that are sitting on top of the engine.
Make sure you Disconnect the Mass Air Flow Sensor and Air Temperature Sensors!!!
Once you pull out the Manifold - it is easy as cakes to replace your three other Spark Plugs -
Follow the steps backwards and VOILA! - It is a LOT easier to do then all this jargon I've written
