Went to open my door today on the GT and ended up with a bit of chrome plastic flying through the air. :(

I know that the handles are rubbish but 33K miles is not a lot of use! I suspect that the passenger's side is likely to go next!

I am about to trawl through the search engine but does anyone out there who has replaced the handles have any advice on what to look out for?

everything thats silver is alloy, did the black bit of plastic that goes into the door break?
the hinge is die cast, when mine went i bought a handle of a car been broken on ebay for £15 and just swapped the hinge
