I own a 99 323 and recently the LH (Drivers) external door handle has decided not to work. The first time it decided to go dead I remember hearing something fall between the exterior door skin and the interior door panel. After removing the interior door panel and side air bag I found a small plastic grey clip that appears to have broke. I was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem, perhaps which part I may need to order, or if anyone knows how to remove the exterior door handle on an E46 so that I can get a better look at the problem? I've been having to open the door from the interior handle for the past 2 weeks and it's driving me insane. Any information would be helpful.
