you just pull the inside door panel and three screws hold it on

I assume you mean the exterior handle and not the interior?

After looking again, my first post wasn't very helpful. What you need to order depends. On what broke. There is a spring mechanism that operates the exterior handle. If that's what broke you probably can't open the door from the outside. If the plastic handle broke you can probably pull what's left to open it. Buying just the handle will fix that. The three bolts that hold it on are a mother to get out, but easier if you pull the glass. Hope that helps.

I replaced my driver side exterior handle and it wasnt a hard job. Make sure your window is rolled up before starting, haha. I have auto windows btw...

My handle was ripped off by a chick I know and shes def no incredible hulk. I painted mine with color matched paint and now you cant even tell its not the stock handle. Its a pain to have to fix it, but its totally doable.
