Question about Kia Sedona
You will probably have to remove the inner door panel to expose the door handle, and then determine if you can tighten it or replace it. There should be 3 or 4 bolts/screws holding the inner door handle assembly to the door frame. If it's only loose, re-tighten and re-install the inner door panel. If the handle pivot mechanism is worn or damaged, pick up a replacement (these are available on ebay at a reasonable price). Caution: if you're not familiar with this type of repair, take some pictures of the old handle before you remove it. That way you have a reference when you install the replacement handle. Good luck.

You can remove the handle from cover by removing pin clips on it. To fixing the broken handle you can just using plastic glue or you can drill a small hole and put some small wire to reinforce the plastic.

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. Pull back the weather seal and you'll be able to get to remove the bolts securing the outer handle on

There should be 2 screws on the panel, one near the lower pocket and one holding the handle in. Remove both of them and with a flat head screwdriver, carefully begin prying the panel away from the door as you pull the panel toward yourself with the other hand. You just want to release the plastic door panel inserts from the edges and center of the panel. You can then disconnect any clips for power door locks, windows, etc. The rod is connected to the handle by a small clip at the base, release the clip and pull the rod vertically up and out of the handle. Remove and replace the handle and reverse the steps for installation. When you are ready to reinstall the door panel, line up the clips to the holes on the door and strike the panel with your hand using the base of your palm to secure the panel to the door.
