    side door handle replacement.

    I did a search and nothing came up. Anyway I need to replace my side door handle. Broke in half inside piece still in there, Vice grip opening. do I just remove the spring clip to get the old piece out?. seems hard to fine one thought i might try to weld and pin it back together. Thanks for any replies.

    X-Ray View

    Vanner68 did a great X-Ray view of the door components by snapping pics with the skin removed. Gregg, where's that at? I can't remember if it showed a closeup of that clip. Personally, I've had good luck removing those clips with a shop rag dragged accross the tip and then fishing the clip out of the bottom of the door with a magnet. As for the handles, they are a tough item since they usually break right at the groove that holds the clip.
