The right rear passenger inside door handle has been snapped off by an impatient person and i would like to know if it is possible to repair the handle and put it back in to the door or is it time to find the $1200 that the dealer wants to sort it out.

Try a search on here. Your experience is not the first, but 1200 dollars? Where are you?
If you've had the car from new I'm sure Alfa Romeo can help.

The $1200 is for the door panel from the Alfa dealer I got the G from in Melbourne. Has anyone fixed a handle with this type of damage and is possible the refit the handle to the door panel after fixing it?

Why would you need to pay $1200 for a new the door panel ? How is it related to the handle ?

At least you could get a second hand one from a wrecker for much less.

The handle was originally only available as the entire doortrim with handle. This is probably £400. Plus labour.
If the handle is replaced under warranty the parts are paid by the supplier and labour costs are reduced. But now there is a kit of just the handle now the car(model) is over three years old.

The "right rear passenger inside door handle" has broken which is unusual as well. I would assume the drivers side handle would be the first to break ?

Just had my passenger front door trim replaced at Desira Bury St Edmunds - they, like the local Fiat and Alfa Specialist had not heard the handle being available seperately, and so I thought rather than do a non-approved fix which they have no instructions for, I'd get them to replace the entire door trim.

Alfa Customer service agreed to contribute £150 towards the £356 inc VAT total cost. If you're being charged £400 I'd go somewhere else - the job took 30 minutes max and the part from memory was £266 plus VAT.
