I broke the handle, and I super-glued it back. The super glue seems to hold very good, but I forgot which way the pointed lever faces, and how to put the spring on. I've been trying to put it back together, but haven't been able to.
I took the pin, spring, handle the hook all out. Any know? or at least which way things point?

Glue will not be able to hold on a door handle. Too much pressure is required to open the door and the handle will only break off again if you try to glue it back on. Replace the entire handle assembly.
You will need to remove the handle from the door, remove the inner lining from within the door. now the handle can be taken out and replaced or mended with a super glue if broken( if part is difficult to obtain).
Once the handle is put in place make sure that the inner lining is put back in the correct order.
If the handle comes with the lock then the spring settings also should be reset.
I went to the RV dealer and looked at a new unit to see how the door handle actuates. After I understood that, I was able to take a screwdriver and GENTLY duplicate the same action. I had some success for several months after gluing up the broken handle before it broke again. The second gluing attempt didn't hold at all so we'll be purchasing a new handle unit. From some of the reader's forums, it is indicated that this is a very common problem. Supposedly, they have reinforced this replacement part. Unfortunately, you can't just purchase the piece that's broken. You have to buy the whole assembly for $40-$50. Nice after market income for the manufacturer since it happens so often - expensive for us. I just hope the new one is sturdier.
Guess what? Volkwagen makes you buy the entire glove box assembly, including lock and door in gray, black or beige for around $145. No way to fix the latch because it is encased in sealedand glued plastic. Good luck! Mine just broke, also.
I just fixed this today. 01/2/08 First, I got some super glue from Lowesespecially designed for plastics. I first glued some metal strips to the back or the broken off lever, so it will have extra support once glued back. I then applied glue to the broken surface of the lever arm and the support arms I glued earlier. Super glue it awesome, just had to hold it in place for 1 minute, then let it cure for a few hours... working good as new. I'm glad this worked for me, as I did not want to have to search for the part and then worry about taking the refrigerator apart. After repair, I had to educate my wife on how to slam a cup into the arm HEHE.
1) Have to remove the door first; top of the oven there are two screws closest to the door, take those out. and the door should lift out
2) flip the door on the table with the handle side down. starting on the handle side there are three clips (top, middle, and bottom) between the outside casing and inside trim. Using a thin screwdriver gently twist starting at either the top or bottom to pod the two casings apart. work your way around the door.
3) You should see one of the screws that hold the handle on (top) but the bottom screw is under the metal casing so you need to remove the screws around this casing as well to get the other handle screw off.
Once you start you will see it isn't as bad as this sounds. I bought the handle for $40.
It is a shame that this is so cheap and breaks off this easily. Surprisingly we have had ours for at least 6 years before the handle broke and we have 3 girls opening and closing this all the time so I guess I was one of the lucky ones.
Hope this helps and good luck
