Plastic door handle broke on 300M

    The driver's interior door handle broke on our 300M. We had noticed a
    defect in the casting and it finally snapped off. The spring fell out.

    Is it a difficult fix to replace this? Do you have to remove the whole door
    panel or will the small cup around the handle come off to access it?

    Thanx for any help....

    The door panel has to be removed. Take your Vin# to the dealer and have them
    order the correct one for your vehicle. It takes about a 1/2hr to do this
    repair.

    When you take your VIN in to the dealer, reference TSB No. 23-013-04.
    That tells them the right handle part number to order - there's a bunch
    of variatons. There system will probably tell them the right number
    from your VIN as Glenn is saying, but the TSB gives the trim description
    for each part so you can figure it out from that. Also it tells them
    how to replace it.

    Or find the TSB, order the part, and DIY because the part and labor are
    going to be on your nickel. From the TSB: "POLICY: Reimbursable within
    the provisions of the warranty." See - you just *thought* the part had
    a defect! You obviously were mistaken. :)

    Thanks for the input. The dealer quoted us around $150 labor so a half hour
    is probably about right :(
    The only issue now is we noticed two other door handles seem to have a
    little ridge in them.........
