If you are not mechanically inclined, please just take to a shop, it is a pretty cheap fix. If you are determined, you must first remove the interior door panel and sealing plastic sheet, then you can access the two nuts on the back of the handle. Unscrew the two nuts on the back and remove the metal latch linkage from the handle. Then remove the old handle and replace with new handle and reinstall linkage and nuts. Reinstall inner door panel. hope this helps.
Pop out the inside door panel to access the handle from inside. Take off the cotter pins holding the rods to the latch, take out the screws that hold the handle put in new handle and the rods with the cotter pins and reinstall the inside door panel.
I also have the same problem. The only way to get into the panel (without completely tearing it apart is to drill out the rivets across the top of the door. The reason the screw is turning is because inside it's held in place with a nut that is turning. You can get to those nuts once the top panel is removed. Can you do me a favor? Where did you find your replacement handle? I've been looking everywhere and it would be SO helpful to be pointed in the right direction!
No need to get new door if it's only the handles that broke off, unless they fell through the rust or something. Buy a new set of handles from dealer or parts place, or even autorecycler (wrecking yard) and change them.
This is VERY common on these Trucks. My 1995 Silverado has done it Several Times. First you are going to need Door Panel Clips to replace the Ones that you will Break taking off the Door Panel. Any Decent Auto Parts Store Carries them. VERY Straight Forward from there on. For the Exterior Handle-Remove All clips and Screws once inside the Door and Replace. Make sure to put the Rubber Seal on the New Handle or it will leak! For the Inside Handle- Remove the Pin connecting the Old handle and Replace with the New once you get the Door Panel off it is Really Easy from there on!
You will need to remove the door panel. Most use a special clip to attach it to the lock mechanisim. Look in the bottom of the door to find the clip that fell off. If you can't find it you will have to go to chrysler to get another clip or try a wrecking yard and they will probably just give it to you.
Your original repairman must have looked up a similar model without the snack door. The handle of couse would have also been listed, but this is difficult since A. You do not give your model number and B. (maybe not as bad) we don't know what model number he used when he ordered your door(s). Please list the complete model number of your refrig. (from sticker inside fresh food compartment) and I'll try to help.
You can find an exploded view for model PLM168 (it's probably very similar) here: http://tinyurl.com/gv383
It looks like you'd have to gently pry out the choke cover (see attached photo) then you'll see the screws.
When you reinstall the door handle screws, add a bit of thread locker or nail polish to secure them.
