What should I do?

Hey guys, yesterday the wife broke off the door handle from the inside and I’m not sure what to do.
Is there’s a way to replace it or do i have to change the entire door panel? Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Do what I have done for the last year or so. Hide it in the centre console .


Have a look at this thread on the 4x4 Community Forum.

Ah yes the driver door handle...yet another brilliant engineering feat by the same brilliant VW engineers that decided to tuck the rear hatch struts between the headliner and the roof! I mean, it's no fun to make it easy to just put the struts on the outside like other sane designers would, or to simply attach the plastic holder for the main window switches and door handle from the outside while still securing it with the covered screws...nah, that would just encourage DIYers to, well, DIY! And they couldn't have that..what are the dealers going to do then?

Sorry for the rant, just letting off some steam about my favorite pet peeves with the Treg.

2009 T2 Shadow Blue 3.6L V6 (BHK 206KW), 18" Valley rims, Vavona wood package, Pure Beige leather interior, sunroof
2005 T1 Blue Silver 3.2L V6 (BMV 177KW), 18" Manhattan rims, wooden steering wheel and shift lever, otherwise pretty basic (being prepared for sale)

Step 1 - beat the wife
Step 2 - re-attache the handle in a way that restores functionality.

Judging by the picture, functionality is all that's required. Can you not glue it back on?
