Interior Door Handle Replacement

I posted this as a response to someone else fixing theirs but I thought I'd make a thread to have it easier to locate.

So my handle broke about two years ago and I've just dealt with it for all this time and now I wanted to fix it. I looked around for a few days for them and I couldn't find anything less than $50-$60. Then I accidentally found this handle:
Amazon.com: Dorman 77715 Driver Side Replacement Front Interior Door Handle: Automotive
It's made for an Accord but the handles are exactly the same.

If you've removed your door handle panel before, only one screw behind the circle flap that pops up then slide to the right, then you've seen the plastic handle is held in by a double flared pin just over 1" long.

I bent the flared end back and removed the pins on both the new and the old handle.

Instead of making it difficult and use a pin and try to flare it in the small space you have I just got a #10-24 x 1-1/4" machine screw.

Now this screw will be a tad too big for the panel so it will need to be screwed through both sides but it fits perfect through the plastic handle and works like a charm.

Here's my after picture with the new handle in my panel and the old broken handle sitting with the Accord panel.
