My door handle fell off...

It's been a bit of a troublesome month for cars and myself - my daughter's Colt decided to throw a rod through the sump (she now has a nice shiny Seicento instead), the boot release on the A500 now only works from the remote and to top it all off the drivers door handle has now fallen off, sort of.

The front hinge has snapped so it is now held on by the sliding peg at the back of the handle...

All of this just a couple of months out of warranty (typical).

A new handle looks like it will be about 50 delivered which is cheaper than I'd expected (and more expensive than I'd hoped) but it looks like I'll need to strip the door card down to get to it. Can anyone provide me with the essentials on how the card is fixed on?

Hi Julian, there has been a thread in the 500 section about just this.

Also, there are details re removing the door cards in the link below.
