Just changed the passenger side door handle, after the usual fault ie snapped hinge. When I examined the broken one it is obvious that the two dissimilar metals,cast alloy and steel hinge pin have corroded and become completely seized resulting in breakage. I know that lubrication has been mentioned before. I would definitely fully endorse this as it will save you £65-70 on new handles. What are you waiting for get outside now and lube up, make it part of yourservice routine.
