Default Broken door Handle

New to forum, been learking & learing for a while now, 1st question, Wife went out this morning to go to work, door handle was froze so she reefed on it and broke it, now door won't open from the outside only broke the right half of handle, the little arm that goes inside the door, looks like it is white metal. Can this be JB welded or or does it need replaced? If it needs replaced any hints or tricks on how? Thanks in advanced

I would just hit up your local junkyard for a new one. They are fairly easy to replace.
To take off the inside door panel.
First unscrew all the major screws which are located behind the long horizontal light(2 screws?), behind the plastic peice at the top of the handle that you use to close the door(1 screw), And after you pry off the plastic peice behind the handle that opens the door, there is a star headed type screw.
Make sure the lock button is slided in the lock position when you take out the handle housing.
Now the only thing holding the door panel on are plastic screw looking things, you can just pry off the panel at that point.
The only thing you have to do now is pull back the plastic, roll up your window, and unscrew the two 10 mm bolts holding the handle in.

hope that helps.
