Please help fiat 500 drivers door handle fell off!!!

Hi there everyone I'm new and so I apologise if I am writing this in the wrong forum! But my fiat 500 chrome door handle has snapped off clean in my hand!! now I bought a new huge repair kit thinking that's all it needed, however the black clip part (on the part nearest to the boot) of the handle has snapped off as well. Now do I need to buy a whole new door handle or can I just buy and replace the clip? I have a lovely friend who works for jaguar who will fit the handle for me so I don't need to worry about that but I just need some advice! I will try and post a picture of the handle so you can see what I mean as I think I'm not making much sense. But I am not sure how to post a picture right now haha so if you can help on that too that would be appreciated!

Thanks guys!

Its a commonish issue, not unheard of, plenty of information regarding it and repair in the 500 section

I'll try and post a picture tonight or tomorrow and I've looked for my problem
Specifically for a post the same and they all relate to the price of a new handle or that it's only hanging off so not really exactly m problem. I already know the price of a new door handle I just want to know whether I need one or just a clip.

Thanks

Hi - my 2008 fiat 500 door handle has broken off too - where did you buy yours from? Is it hard to fit ?
