The handle broke after someone pulled to hard. The door can still be opened from the outside. I need to know how to fix the handle if possible.
Do you
have the same problem?

Its broke the release handle pretty common on those cars I have replaced a lot of those.I have replaced them for breaking and the chrome peeling. All you have to do is pop out the middle piece that is towards the rear of the car where you grab the door to close it. Then there is two phillps screws you have to remove. Then unplug the connector etc have you found one yet?Also when you find one the color your looking for is pewter there colored to match the door panel. Did you need help finding one?

Hey sorry to get off topic hear, I don't have time to fix the door handle right now as I have to go to work in an hour, however I was wondering if it would be possible to program this keyless remote I have. I am pretty sure it is compatible with this car and was just wondering if it was something I could do myself.

The handle only takes a few mins to replace it. As far as the remote goes what is the GM number on the back of the remote?Also is the remote you think was for that car at one time and it no longer works?
