    If you could post a few pics, I might be able to suggest an effective, permanent repair. I'm pretty good at "Mac Guyvering" things!!!

    Third pics is the internal handle module which is attached to the inside of the door panel (attached by heat plugs). The broken part is at 2:00 o'clock form my finger.

    This the broken part. The loop that is broken hold the ball linkage that attach to the door stryker/opener module.

    This is the ball linkage.

    The GM part number for the inside panel is 25845314. This is for the ebony panel which I do not need really need. Any other color panel would have the same part. Please e-mail me if anyone has access to this part.

    The ball needs to pivot inside so i dont think it will last very long.

    maybe the strain will be on the cable which is a lot stronger. I checked at gm today and they said I have to replace the whole interior panel.
