my passenger door handle broke off the 'lever mechanism' when i opened the door !! I have got it in the body shop( a good friend of mine) and the problem he has is that he  cannot get to the door handle mechanism to remove it to re-attach the handle. there is a screw that needs un-doing and he just cannot get enough pressure on it through the inspection hole in the side of the door. The only other way to get to it is to cut a hole in the front of the door, this will work out rather expensive when it comes to making it good. so what are my options ??? is there someone out there that has a 430 passenger door which they want to sell so i can just replace the whole thing  ...can anyone help !!!

Hi can you maybe get at the screw by removing the door card and with the window glass in the up position get at it? Even if you had to cut away some of the inner skin of the door it wont be visible as the door card will cover it...??
Has to be V6 power and SERIOUS NOISE !!!!!!

What car is it? 360/430/scudo? DNA designed it so that the door handle and hinge bit just clipped onto the metal that is attached to the bracket that is attached to the original mr2 door. What if the inspection hole is made slightly bigger? Have you hit any pictures you can share with us?

its a 430. thanks V8 KLR i will pass it over to the body shop tonight and let you know. Thanks paul I will do the same with what you have told me. I think at the end of the day it will probably be cheaper to get a new door !!  being new to this am i able to just buy the passenger door skin and have that fitted once the repair has been made ?

Can you not unclip the hinge off the bracket, you shouldnt need to unscrew it..  theres a push in button at the back of it..
