Actually, I suggest going to a junk-yard to get your parts. It will be much more expensive to get at your dealership or bodyshop, plus the huge huge huge labor fee. If you want to invest a few minutes to save yourself some time, look to see what other vehicles use the same door handle yours does, (it will be a toyota).
It's probably broken, or unhooked. Just take your inner door panel off, and you'll soon figure out what's happening. Sometimes the rods get bent, or they come off the clip, or just need adjusting. And sometimes the handle itself is broken, but you can do it!
On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle,
arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the
panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want
to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to
get it off the window ledge. Then you'll need to manipulate the panel
and disconnect the door handle linkage from the door handle and
disconnect the wiring for your controls. Then you can access the bolts that secure the mirror onto the door
My husband (who is a weight lifter) managed to bust our door handles three times during the hot summer months. It was about $35 for the not so fancy handles and installation, I think over $50 for someone to do the fancy painted handle (driver's side door). We had it done since I think at least one of the times, the door would have had to be dismantled.
FYI the Toyota dealer said that in the hot summer months, the door handles were the items ordered the most for Toyotas across the board. We don't live in a hot climate anymore, and havent had any problems with melted/broken handles.
i have a corolla i have been through 3 drivers door handles for some reason they break fairly easy the handles aftermarket are usually 50 bucks or so and i should take about an hour to replace so idk what ur mechanics hourly rate is but this should be a rought idea
There's two screws by the handle, pull those out and you'll see how it all connects on the inside. I was able to remove my broken one, and drill a hole into the plastic where it broke and reuse it - it's lasted over 4 years now.
