How do you replace an exterior drivers door handle on an Oldsmobile Silhouette?

Typically the handle does not need to be replaced. If the handle is there but does nothing more than flop back and forth then a part, usually plastic, has broken inside the door. This part usually fits into one part and snaps onto another part. This combination pulls a rod attached to the door releasing mechanism. Oldsmobile dealers and some auto part stores will have a pictorial view of these internal door parts. Very labor intensive to replace.
