    went to the car this morn to give mum a lift to work. when i dropped her off saw some friends who could do with a lift home. got out and opened the drivers side rear door and was frozen shut so me being me gave it a yank and then the handle came off in my hands. looks like some parts have been broken and would prob need new ones. parts aint a problem was just wondering if its a fix that can be done by me or is it a garage job? anyone had this problem and tried fixing it their self?
