The exterior door handle of my car just broke off when I tried to open the door. I was wondering how hard it would be to replace to door handle myself. Or if I should just save my time and take it to a mechanic. I know how to do some things on the car already. I have had the door panels off before to replace the speakers

Do you

Remove the door panel, the retaining screws that hold the latch to the door, and the linkage to it and replace it. Not a hard job.
