    Chrysler 2001 Sebring. I took a car in for repair of a broken inside
    door handle (handle intact, something broken inside the door itself).
    The dealer told me I would have to replace the entire inner door
    panel. For a nice round total of over $900. That seems on the
    expensive side. The handle is still there and "springy". I could have
    sworn I heard a "ting" sort of sound when it broke initially. I think
    the repair is beyond me. I bought a special tool for popping out the
    door panel divets/clips/whatever but the first one I tried broke right
    in half and I gave up there, not wanting to cause further damage.
    Anyone else here have experience with this?

    I forgot to mention that this is a 4 door sedan

    That doesn't sound right to me. Usually, the interior release handle
    is separate
    from the interior door panel. On my 2000 Cirrus, the panel is remove
    before the
    mechanism can be serviced.
