Porsche People! - I need your help!

My door handles have completely given up. The trigger / lever to open the door used to be really awkward to activate. It got to the point where I'd have to hold it engaged towards me whilst elbowing the door. It did look like I was stealing my own car. But now, when I pull the trigger to open the door it does nothing. No tension in it. It's totally broken now.

Since new handles cost the earth, what's the best solution? Can my existing handles be repaired? If so, what does your experience suggest the cause might be?

I can get hold of these: 'DROP LINK BAR MECHANISM'

Would that help? Thank you, your help & experience is seriously appreciated! Best wishes

The lever in mine broke in half a few years ago. Luckily I found a complete set of both L& R handles on ebay for $100.

A single door handle these days is $400-$500 which is just crazy.

If it's the lever broken in yours you might try this lever kit from 944 Online it's only $35.00+shipping

They are golf mk1 Grips and thus rather cheap:

Inside of your door, the trigger opens the lock via a metal rod that's attached to a plastic ball socket. I suspect in your case the plastic is broken. Easiest way to figure out is to remove the door cards and check for yourself.
