Hi
Has anyone had their door handle broke clean off from the door?
Today, i tried to open back passenger door and handle snapped right off..
Note sure if it's related to door latch recall?

If you have had and know,
How much does it cost to replace? Possible to DYI?

Thanks

FYI, as this is a known issue, I would advise anybody that's worried about this happening to them to disable the child locks for the rear doors if you don't need to use the child locks. This will allow you to open the rear doors from the inside should this happen to you. If the child locks are enabled for the rear doors and the outside handle falls off, you won't be able to open that rear door at all.

I know this won't help the original poster but it will allow others to handle this themselves should the rear handle fall off in the future or at least to use the rear doors until it's taken in for repair.

FYI, there are a few YouTube videos that may help you in the following thread. Search for "door":
