2008 GMC 2500HD interior door handle mecanism
I have a 2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD SLE ext cab 6.0 4x4. just the other day something broke in the interior door handle mecanism...door will not open with internal handle but work good with outside handle.
So I removed the internal door panel to find a broken metal part holding the the ball at the end of the wire cable going to the latch/opener module. Went my local GM dealer and was told that I need to replace to complete internal door panel at almost 800$.
*&?*(* for just a small white metal POS.
Has anyone encountered this problem before.
1- Are there any third party parts suppliers where I can get this part. The internal handle assembly is glued to panel but it would be an easy job to replace if the part was available.
I might have to search with auto salvage suppliers to get a used panel. Even if it is not the same color panel I would remove the internal door assembly and reglue to my existing panel.
Can anyone direct me to any parts dealers where I could order this part.
