Are these handles really broke, or did the pin just fall out? Reason I ask is this just happened to my '03. The handle pulled way out, and I saw that it wasn't broke, just missing the pin that connects it to the mech inside the door. I pulled the int panel off and dropped a nail (yes, a building nail) into the hole. It's worked great and didn't cost a dime.
You are a star, I've just used your trick with a standard nail and it's fixed, it's saved me £30-40! Very pleased. Thank you for sharing.
