Door handle snapped right off today.

So today when I got home from work and went to get out of the car, I pulled the handle and the damn thing snapped right off in my hand!! I didn't pull on it any harder than usual and yes the door was unlocked. This sucks!

Has this happened to anyone else before?? and Does anyone know the easiest cheapest way to find one or anyone selling one? Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Thanks a lot man! I really appreciate you checking it out for me. I didn't mean for you to research it for over an hour for me. Thanks Bro! I'd give you rep points I've heard people talking about, but I don't know how.??

Re: Door handle snapped right off today.

^^ Yeah I still appreciate the looking out for me lol, Yes I need the Left drivers side handle, BUT.....I need the INSIDE handle. I broke it while getting Out of my car when I got home. Sorry for the confusion. I should have mentioned that it was the Inside Handle I was looking for. I think it comes with the whole bezel that holds the door lock switch and tweeter.
P.S. I hit you up with rep points!
