Take it to the buick dealer. As the daughter of a mechanic, it was a call I didn't want to make! The dealer installed two handles for me and painted them to match for under $100.00. Well worth the trip.

29 cent part my fix your problem. There is a nipple on the interior door lock lever that fits into a slot on the door handle lever. Look at passenger side to compare. The nipple is covered with a plastic spacer that may come off. The spacer keeps the lock nipple snug in the handle lever slot; pull the handle lever, it engages the lock lever, opening door. I bought a .29 cent aluminum spacer (#8x1/4 x 1/4) from Orchard hardware. Take needle nose pliers and slip the spacer on, then super glue. Unfortunately if lock lever (where riveted) is badly worn, then it may pivot upward instead of perpendicular to the door, thus defeating new spacer. But you may now be able to open door by pulling handle lever and lock lever at the same time. If you need to replace door handle, others on this site have suggested that you not replace metal frame that door handle is mounted on, but drill out rivets that hold door handle mount.

Re the 'falling handle' issue, I think you misunderstood the problem, jgwhomeequip. Unfortunately for me I bought *two* similar Price Pfister faucets and both had the same problem - the water wouldn't stay on and the handle just wouldn't stay up.
I took mine apart looking for something to adjust, fruitlessly. Put it back together and have lived with it like that for ~2 years.
Finally I decided to not be a knucklehead any longer and call the manufacturer. Once I got through to their rep (on a Saturday no less!) she helped me identify the model I had (a 533-50SS, just FYI), and asked me 'what finish'? I replied 'stainless steel' and she promptly replied, 'I'm going to mail you out new lighter handles to replace the ones you have'.
Brilliant! Gold star for PP for standing behind their product well past the warranty for what was apparently a common problem. Replacing the handle will take about 10 seconds per faucet.
I only wish I had got of my a$$ and called them 2 years ago.

Hope that's helpful to somebody.

Take handle off and check out the inside to make sure it not striped out and on the top of the handle it may have a plastic cap to pop of to access the screw holding in in place you amy have to use a knive to get it off .
If you can't see a set screw it may have a screw in handle on top.
