You can buy a door handle on eBay or from an auto dismantler... I found one for my 2001 Corolla for $9 on eBay (including shipping). To put it on, you will need a Phillips head screwdriver to take out the screw on the current handle. Remove the handle by sliding the handle assembly towards the front of the car, maybe slightly up or down. Try and pry out the door handle, noting that you will keep it attached to the wire piece that unlocks the door. Remove the wire from the inside of the door from the plastic bit sticking out of the back of the handle. Put the plastic bit in the back of the new handle, then place the interior wire in the hole and snap on the clip. Slide the assembly back and screw the screw in, and you're done! No need to remove the panel. It may be useful to have some needle nose pliers or some tweezers, but this is not entirely necessary.

Previous AnswerHey, I have a '93 corolla, and my door handles keep breaking, too. I love the car, and have never had trouble with it, accept for the stupid cheap door handles. I've never asked the dealership what they charge for a new one, but I bet its a lot. I tried to epoxy it once, but that only lasted for a week or two. The only thing you can do besides that is find one in a junk yard, or swap the front one with the rear one. But then your back seat passangers can't get out without rolling down the window, which is annoying and embarassing. Good luck!
