I searched online and found several problems of the handle breaking. I removed the inside panel and found indeed the handle was broke. I searched several online stores and found all offered the handle in white but I needed black. I found parts select and they had the best price fast shipping and the correct color. A+

Using a drill driver I removed the 11 screws from the door liner. Lifted the liner, removed the switch assembly. Carefully pulled at the wire connections with pliers, the small pin locator broke which freed the switch and facilitated an easy removal of the wire connector. On the second switch/wire connection I used a small screwdriver to release the plastic latches and removed that switch with its wires. That allowed easy removal of the wires with the pliers. Inserted the wires in the new assembly, placed it in the door, aligning the screw holes, Using the drill driver, I replaced the eleven screws, being careful to use the longer screws across the top of the door liner. Done.

Ordered the replacement door latch with switches because it came that way even tho I did not need the switches. While waiting for the part, I used two epoxy coated strips of cloth to repair the handle axle mounts. They held and probably are holding still. It took 10 minutes after the part arrived to replace my repair.
