if you can take the door panel off its pretty much easy.... oh and don't get ripped off by honda.... call around junk yards first....u could probably pick one up for less than 50 hopefully the same color as your car...

try this site..

Hey that happened to me last year too... i got one from a junk yard for like 30 bucks... and then i got it painted and installed for another 30..... so 60 all together..... but if you can find one thats the color of your car it probably wouldnt cost you more than 45 or so to get it and get it put on...

If you have power door locks, watch out for the connectors when you take apart & reassemble the door mechanisms... They are somewhat fragile...:cry:

So in order to get the new handle on do i just take apart the entire door both sides (interior and exterior) and go from there or is there an actual like quick and easier way to get to the door handle without ripping the entire door apart. I looked in my chilton a couple times now and all it tells about is the interior.
So i dont know anyone have any suggestions????

there is notihng to take apart on the exterior... if you have the chiltons manual it should show you step by step on how to do it... look for it...
