When others had this issue, the dealer solution was to replace the whole door panel (since the handle alone was/is not a replaceable part).

But given the panels are hard to come by now, I wonder if dealerships have smartened up. Hah! What am I saying?

Thank you very much Mr. Soup. I also plan to call the dealership tomorrow just to see what they would have charged me for the handle repair. I paid $16 for the handle and it took me all of 45 minutes to fix start to finish.
Use the difference in dealer cost versus your cost as an excuse to go out and buy something nice. Like, maybe for your Solstice? :grin:

Just called the local dealer for a price on fixing my door handle. The labor would have been $187.00 for one hour, and the part would have been $268.76. They would have had to order the whole door panel. They did say they would put it on if I could find just the handle, but they would have to charge me for two hours labor. So I saved $439.76 dollars doing it myself.
