Handle / arm rest thing broken

Hey guys, not sure how this happened but the armrest / doorhandle seems to be loose and coming out. Any ideas on how to fix this?

as far as how to fix it IDK but I know you will have to remove the door panel to get at the mounting point

Removing the door panel isn't that hard. I have a complete set of all 4 if anyone were interested BTW.

A healthy but tidy glob of JB Weld where that mounting boss is broken from inside the pull-handle will do the job.

Looks like a passenger side door and could quite possible have happened by placing an extra amount of stress on the front edge of the handle. Typically, try to grab the door handle in the middle versus on either extremity to more evenly distribute the closing force/pressure. At any rate, that is nether here nor there and first hunch would be to either replace the door handle (if possible) or the entire door panel. However, "repairing" it another way might be an option as well. Good luck

epoxy maybe.. Jam a nut into the handle after epoxy and then screw that screw back in.. Or you could epoxy the OEM part back in. Be really light on it so that you don't get it all over the place. Use a plastic epoxy. Otherwise you will have to replace that part.

Thanks everyone. I’ll probably just attempt to glue it back on and if all else fails I will probably just get a replacement door panel if they’re not too expensive.

By the way, there are a few G8 door panels floating around on eBay depending on which one is needed. Also, instructions should be available on the forum to assist with removing the door panel (if necessary).
