I had to break my door too get it off

First you have to remove the black cover behind the mirror by popping out the cap over the screw. Then the window crank, there's a clip behind the crank holding it to the shaft. You will have to push in on the door panel to see it, and push it off with a flat screw driver or whatever you have that can get between the crank and panel. Next pop out the caps at the top and bottom of the door handle and remove those screws. Next remove the speaker cover and speaker. Next remove the two screw located under the arm rest, in the door pocketl. Next remove the screw behind the latch that opens the door. Now you have to slide the latch unit back to unhook the front of it. The linkeage is gonna make it hard, but it will move. Now unsnap the door panel along the bottom edges all the way around until the panel is free. Slide the panel upward to unhook it at the top. The latch unit should be able to twist and pull throught its opening. That should do it. Good Luck!

You can pick up the handle from your local GMC dealer. I paid roughly $90 for both (a bit high...but money well spent!) As noted, yes; you do have to remove the interior door panel. From there it's just a matter of removing 4 nuts (metric #10 socket), and replacing them back once the new handle is slipped into place! The bars that operate the door latches simply snap into the plastic clips attached to the handle assembly.
The operation sounds worse then what it really is. It took me longer to write up this review than it did to actually do the work! 5 minutes max...done!! Hell, if you're local; buy the parts
