The GF puts a lot of stock in that handle. Pretty sure one of the bolts is stripped too, lol!

I've broken mine too...it's completely snapped off...I thought maybe I needed a new door card but maybe I can just replace the handle? Looks like it's snapped from both top and bottom mounts?

One person can change the world, but I'll just change it back

Post up a pic Kam. I thought my door trim was a little torn, but when I put the new handle on, everything was covered.

Initially I used araldite and then fibre glass filler on top. Turned out stronger than ever but the silver finisher wouldn't clip in because of too much filler. Can't be stuffed removing it and sanding it down so getting a new one.

I might even use araldite on the new one so it has no chance of breaking again.

ok guys, I rang two Nissan dealers in vic and got quoted at $150 and $180 for the door handle without the silver finisher, which to me is a bit unreasonable.

could you guys please tell me which Nissan dealers you purchased the handle from. Don't mind buying one from interstate if its cheaper than what the dealers here in vic sell them for.

There is no such place/person as a Nissan Dealer. The Australian Sub_Species are more commonly referred to as Nissan Stealers. No correlation to the footy team in the US.

Edit is due to Kiwi Sav Blancs. Cheers!!! Happy New Year.
