Default Oh Crap Handle

On my 99 SLE, the rear passenger side Handle is loose and is held in only by the headliner. I have tried pushing and tapping, but I am concerned that if I put too much pressure on it (like a foot or something) I might bend the top. Any ideas on how to get it to pop back in?

Yeah people thought it was funny to keep puling on mine hard and letting go, and hanging out the windows. I thought it was funny to leave them at kohls..

I know exactly what you are talking about. A friend of mine kids like playing with the window switch too. Wish I had a lock sw on the windows but I don't.

We're talking about the grab handles above the back doors (and I think the front passenger door as well).

My kids are old enough, 12 and 17, that I don't worry about opening the windows. Especially since they only go halfway down. I've heard there was a way to get around that, but it sounded like more work than it was worth

Yep, The grab handles. I guess they like hearing them snap back in place.
