SOURCE: i need to know how to replace the passenger side,

First, you remove the inside door panel. If you have reasonable experience with fixing stuff, after that it will become clear what to do.

Lift up the handle, you will see the bolts there, You will also have to pry off inside door panel (after removing any screws) than you will have access to the nuts. That's all there is to it.

SOURCE: 2002 Nissan Altima Exterior Door Handle

I seriously doubt that supergluing or even epoxying a handle back will hold at all, or hold for more then few days.
I would only suggest doing the replacement yourself if you familiar with this type of work, or has the aptitude to figure out how to do it, and have the right tools because it is NOT trivial and a number of things can be done wrong, broken or scratched.
The handle itself cannot be replaced. The outside door handle assembly (which includes the handle, the bezel with all associated springs, plastic and metal hardware) has to be replaced. Besides junkyards, which is a long shot for number of reasons, the only place where the handle assembly can be bought is the dealer. And these handle assemblies are not cheap ether. The driver side handle on my 2002 Altima broke first. I paid $60.23+tax, and they had to order it. BEFORE anyone goes to the dealer I suggest to call first, and ask them if they have it in stock. Since door handles are sold painted they will ask you for your car's VIN number so that they match the paint color.
After you pick it up, the replacement will take about an hour (if you know what you doing). The inside door panel has to be removed, it is held in place by the inside door handle and the panel is attached by a number of clips, the handle assembly is attached to the door by three bolts, to remove which you will need a socket with extension. You will also need a good flashlight so you see what you are doing.
If you are familiar how to do this type of work and plan to keep the car for a while I strongly suggest buying a factory service manual on a CD (I bought mine on eBay for under $10). It is worth its price 1000s of times over, and makes almost ALL repair work SOOO much easier.751424a.jpg73e3811.jpgd240851.jpg

SOURCE: exterior door handle for nissan pathfinder

I just replaced this on my 95. Past the hole in the door there should be a up-side down L shaped metal pole, but that pole can get lost inside the door and you have to search around with maybe a coat hanger to fish it into place. Once you find it grab it with a needle nose pliers and get the new handle at the same time, then pry and hook the L shape in to the eye-let of the new door handle. Once you have hooked the handle to the metal L pole, then you have 2 metal shoulder poles to slide into the hinging part of the new handle.

You can get new handles and not need to change locks. Might check a local salvage yard for best price.
