    Today, after I left my training seminar to come home, I unlocked my
    driver's side door, pulled up on the door handle and to my shock, it
    came off in my hand. I have never had a door handle break off under
    normal conditions. Of course it is totally plastic and I suppose over
    time and environmental conditions it just became weak and broke. But I
    really think that it was more of a case of defective material or poor
    design from the start. Of course now I must open the passenger door
    first in order to release the latch from the driver's door. Anyway,
    how big of a teardown/replace activity am I going to have to deal with?
    Thanks for suggestions.

    thats a common failure on that car and it will more than likely have to be
    painted to match to boot
