    They're not sold as a separate part - all part of the door card. If you found some in a scrappy then physically I'd think they could be swapped.

    Do you mean the bit you pull on to get the door open or the large handle usually used to close the door?

    The larger bits on mine are scratched, it's all covered with some weird stuff that kinda peels off in bits.. all of mine is scratched, including the bits on the steering wheel! The front of the large handles come off and can be replaced.. not sure if they're sold as a seperate part though.

    There's a post somewhere that shows how to get these off.. it's pretty much a case of pulling them off.

    Gimme 2 mins and i'll find it for you.. if not, i'll take some pics tomorrow.. i had mine off to get to the screws so i could remove the door card and replace the speakers.

    Just thought though.. which bit is scratched.. the bit that comes off or the larger part behind it? If it's the larger part, i'm afraid i've no idea! sorry.

    Ah sorry Muffking, for some reason I was thinking you were meaning the chrome handle that releases the door.

    As above, if it's the flat part of the handle that faces you then it's simply a pop off cover. If it's the main handle itself - the part that cover attaches to and what your fingers wrap around - then it's part of the door card. It is swappable (with a bit of butchery) from another door card, but it's not sold as a part.
