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.

Re: 1995 Toyota Corolla Door Handle
It's advanced. Briefly, you'll have to take the door panel off, and then disconnect the door handle linkages, and then unbolt the door handle from the inside.
You'll have to manuver around the window and window regulator and wires
and swtiches. And that's after you successfully remove the door panel
itself, which in itself can be quite trickly without advance tools.
At this time you **** your new door handle (hopefully it's paint matched) and hook everything back up.
If you'd like to tackle it, you could get more detailed info.

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).
No major labor to fix and you can do this yourself. You have to remove all screws on the door panel, use a tool available at the automotive store. It looks like a flattened out screwdriver with a notch in the flattened end. This is to help pop the fasteners off with the door panel from the door itself. Tools is about $5.00.
After that, unclip the skinny rods to the the affected door handle. You can use a skinny screwdriver for this. Unbolt the 2 screws or bolts from the door handle and wiggle it out.
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
First get vin call toyota parts dept/ get the part its really easy to put in look for screws in little pop ups take screws out then go from the bottom of the door and lift out then go side do the same thing then lift from bottom of door and upward then you will take of vapor or plastic sheet then you just replace the handle thats it then out it back together/ Please rate my response thank you very much
It shouldn't be too hard. Since they are all identical. But why not just buy one at an online store. Google images for the door handle for your car. There are a lot of places to but one. But whatever you do is up to you.
