    I've had enough replacing them. Driver side is now a pull rope handle. Google provides nothing. Im looking for plans or alternative ideas for the inner handles. I'm handy with metal BTW. There must be a real fix?????

    How do your door hinge bushings look? If the door is sagging, that sometimes leads to broken door handles as you're pushing on the door to open it.

    Hinges and pins seem good. I heard about changing the lock mechanism but my hands are not tiny. Just looking for a custom idea.

    im sure it wouldn't be hard to fab up a steel handle , just got to put the time in . they look pretty simple. get some flat and start measuring cutting and welding . i'd like to see what you come up with , so in for pics if it happens
