Loose Exterior Door Handles.

Has anyone else dealt with this issues? My door handles are loose and kinda wobbly to the touch especially the drivers door. I've heard nightmare stories of how cobalts door handles have just broke off in people's hands. Is this my future? I've done nothing but be gentle with these handles. When installing my leds on the handles I did not remove them at all, I gently moved then back to slide wiring through so I doubt if that's the problem. Could someone tell me how much play they have in their door handles? Also how are they held on and can they be tightened??

You asked how they were held in place not if I thought they were loose. I need pictures or videos I can't guess.
